    Perhaps a thought. I wonder…… If one would write into the Rebbe about the heavy expense of flying their family from Aussie to The U.K. If the Rebbe would endorse that expense. I personally know stories where the Rebbe told parents to attend with out the children due to the great expense. I hope the Raffle brings in loads of money.

    I have another dollar from the Rebbe, specifically for the goirol, regardless of if a donor purchases a dollar in a single donation option. Besoros Tovois by everyone, Daniel Kaye

    recently has been doing the same this- they ask people if they would donate a dollar from the Rebbe and then they auction it off, the $ is used to save jewish women and children who are trapped by the arabs from intermarriage.

    good luck to this raffle.

    i agree with the comment that mentionned that the Rebbe did not approve of the costly amounts of flying in family and other exorbant costs of chasuna, prefering less

    So a guest walks into a wedding, sees the father of the Kallah, and says, “Mazel tov! Are you the Baal simcha?” The father points to the caterer counting his $$, and says, “no, he’s the Baal simcha – I’m the Baal chov…”

    in response to your post, i remember at a frabregen,in ’80 or ’81,the rebbe said he never heard of a family having to sell their shoes in order to pay to fly to a family chasana.

    You missed the point!! Who cares!! A family has the guys to have to publicly ask for Tzedakah!!! Be quiet and help!!!

    Yes, the rebbe said that, and he said..

    Nowadays to make a wedding costs way more then back then and the standard of a wedding is way higher!! That’s why people go in debt for it.
    This rabbi needs money for the basics…,Give all you can!!

    Rebbe's $ is worth much more

    A dollar given by the Rebbe to a shliach inEurope whas auctioned lately for € 27.000,00 aprox. $ 37.000,00

    Do you know why the Rebbe gave this man his dollars? Maybe it was to help him (the Rebbe’s Shliach) make a Chasunah for his son?

    bt rebbe dollar experience

    in 1991, i came to Crown Heights, not knowing alef beit, age 20. I got a dollar in line for the rebbe, and as i parted, i gave it away to tzedaka, partially not sure if that is what i was supposed to do, and partially due to the idea (at the time) not feeling right to me, to give koved to a dollar bill, etc. now, over 20 years passed, and i have become frum, and often felt regret at having given away that dollar, having heard so many miracle stories, and for the most part, not having a… Read more »

    Surely there’s a fund that can help.

    I look at the weddings bh on this site and everything so lavish, but how can anyone afford it. It looks like every wedding is a millionaires wedding. Everything is so so fabulous but are the people so wealthy, how does anyone get the credit, or have the cash, unless everyone is very wealthy. How do huge families afford yeshiva tuition, medical bills, and food clothes etc and make these functions. It’s very confusing, when we hear of such poverty in the community.

    I hope someone can heL this a Rabbi

    The pain

    You can feel the pain and worry how this Rabbi is going to pay for his sons wedding, If you have decided to enter for the raffle why not send your donation just for the Mitzvah of helping a fellow Jew and let the Rabbi keep his precious dollar. only Simchas and Hatzlocha

    who cares about the fact that he is giving his dollar- its his only worthy posesion to sell

    To all of you who have commented. I am from Sydney and still live in sydney. I can’t begin to to tell you who rabbi Kaye is. If this man had a millioon $ he would keep enough for his family and the rest to tzedukah.. He puts so much into the rebbe’s shluchis and made such an impact on so many lives.. To all of you , it’s very nice that he has decided to raffle of rebbe dollars because that’s his only choice really to support and have his sons wedding. To him it’s not easy and it’s… Read more »

    The wedding is to take place in just a few weeks, tickets still need to be bought, Mrs, Benjamin of KSCVK has generously offered to help with clothing and very basic items, but we still need to raise the bare minimum for the Chasunah to take place.

    Please everyone, go to the PAYPAL site now and give whatever you can.

    We know that the most revered person in a Chabad Chossids life is the Rebbe, hence many Chassidim practically gave up their lives as they new it in order to fulfil the Rebbes instructions or even the Rebbes suggestion. Now at this time, 20 years after Gimmel Tammuz where as individuals we have precious little in physical terms – that we can hold in our hands – which we have received from the Rebbe, and that what we do have cannot be expanded or invested to grow as the value is in the particular item received. Can you imagine the… Read more »

    IT IS PRICELESS, ONE CANNOT PLACE A PRICE ON ANYTHING THAT HAS BEEN TOUCHED BY THE REBBE.

    IT WOULD BE NICE TO KNOW WHEN THE DOLLARS WERE GIVEN ALSO. PERHAPS THERE IS A PHOTO ALSO THAT CAN BE POSTED. SAD THAT SUCH A PERSONAL HOLY ITEM HAS TO BE GIVEN AWAY TO PAY EXPENSES. THE REBBE WOULD BE HORRIFIED THAT IT COME TO THIS. THERE ARE SO MANY WEALTHY PEOPLE IN CHABAD NOT TO MENTION THE OLIGARCHS, CAN THEY NOT GIVE AN INTEREST FREE LOAN TO HELP THIS SHLIACHS PLIGHT????
