This is a great video. Looking forward to the DVD. I have the older tape version of this. One thing that I like about it. along with seeing the Rebbbeim, was how they also, within Torah, followed the laws inn the land they lived. The Rebbe Rayyatz became an American citizen, he didn’t sneak into the country and avoid taxes, etc… Truth and honesty in all things.

I think this film was originally done in black and white – it was re-done in computerized color only recently.

Even though color film was available starting in 1935 – I think this film was not done in color to begin with.

wow its so amazing to see the rebbe in color and motion.

Filmed originally in COLOR. (Two (still) photographers photographed in black and white.
Notice the red roses in the Rebbe’s tie.

While color film was certainly unusual in 1949, this event was filmed in color.

I heard directly from Rabbi Nissan Mindel, that the Rebbe and himself were the ones who arranged the filming of the ceremony of citizenship , by the request of the Frierdike Rebbe.
