    YES!!

    Whoever thought of this, I take off my hat for you!! Also, I agree with no.1, I am a resident on that block and getting home can be a disaster at times.

    Time to make 770 bigger!

    I was there today. The media should do a story on Mr Mendel Mintz. He’s an inspiration, nothing stops him.

    Great Idea, M Mintz

    Reminds too much of the ohel, plus it takes away from part of the view outside 770, instead of seeing hustle bustle, it’s just all covered in tent. How do hatzalah, police get through now also? I think although nice idea, it’s taking away from 770, instead of learning Davening inside, people will opt to do it on street instead. Maybe makes less packed inside 770, but the quality you can’t compare. Put the tent on Kingston or any other street for that matter, not right outside which blocks the whole front which I love passing by and seeing each… Read more »

    They should make one of the tents into a succoh for people that have no where to go to hear Kiddush

    A shul right outside 770?!

    A shul right outside 770?!

    770 being so full it’s understood why many would opt to learning in the tents but I think for people to daven there and being an Aron Kodesh and Chazan Amud making it so official and a place where minyonim can be made etc is not respectable to the Rebbe’s shul.
    What do you think?

    Now people will save the time and energy crossing to the other side of Eastern Parkway – with a Yagdil Torah right on the doorstep of 770…

    Brilliant idea

    Brilliant idea

    Should have been done years ago & maybe remove covers on sukkos & turn it into a huge sukka

    What about for ezrat noshim

    This is needed for the women as well. Several women have fainted from the crowd.

    Very surprised not sukkah’s. I am sure we have this improvement, but I also pretty sure that the “temporary dwelling ” will be a real sukkah too. Or a series of them, or some tents and some sukkah’s.

    Reb Nachman, Reb Shalom Charitonov, Reb Shlomeh Zarchi all say that Kedoshas 770 is in the Chatzer as well.

    Not for ppl in 770!

    Not for ppl in 770!

    There is a misunderstanding here! The tent isn’t for the people that daven or learn in 770 the tent is for all the bochrim that fell that there is “no place in 770” so they run away by going to the ohel or yagdil torah or anywhere else away from 770. The Ballei Batim that can’t step foot in 770 Tishrei time “because of lack of space” So no one is telling Ballei Batim that daven in 770 or Bochrim learning in 770 to go outside Chas Veshalom What was done here with the tent is that today there is… Read more »

    This must happen we all know it! and it’s only these bochrim that can pull these kinds of things off!
    where was merkos, gabboim, or any of these ppl that were meant to do these things 25 years ago?? everyone is sleeping
    amazing how a few bochrim can just do this overnight..

    Comments 28 about “running away to the Ohel” sounds disrespectful and is totally not understood.
    Since when was going to visit the Rebbe instead of being in his shul considered”running away”…
