Thousands of guests travel to be with the Rebbe during Tishrei, many organizations care for the guests’ well-being, by providing a full Gashmiyus and Ruchniyus program in 770.
770, is therefore packed to capacity during Tishrei, and many of the regulars are left with no place to Daven and learn.
A few Bochrim found a solution.
A huge tent has been constructed on Eastern Parkway to enable the Crown Heights community to Daven and learn in 770, even during the month of Tishrei.
“This project was Boruch Hashem successful, only because so many parties worked as a team to make this happen,” said Mendel Mintz, one of the organizers.
The team included Chanina Sperlin, who, together with Detective Vinny Martinos of the 71st Precinct, dedicated days of work to receive the proper permits.
Yingi Bistritsky of Crown Heights Hatzolah, and all Hatzolah members have accommodated the construction of the tent by moving the Hatzolah zone to Kingston Avenue.
Also instrumental were Nochum Markowitz, Yonoson Hackner, the Gaboim of 770, Chaim Boruch Halberstam and residents of Eastern Parkway.
A group of dedicated bochurim from 770 are running and managing the tent, Shmuly Butler, Yossi Rapoport, Avremel Yusewitz, and Meir Moshe Altman.
