As the Rebbe enters the evening services on 22 Shevat 5752 – 1992 (nearing his ninetieth birthday), he had already stood on his feet for some four hours greeting crowds, dispensing blessings, advice, and dollar bills to be given to charity.
These scenes, filmed in high quality by a JEM film crew with special access, contain shots of the Rebbe leading the evening prayers on his the Yahrzeit of his beloved wife, followed by remarks in a talk to the public filmed from a unique angle.
Finally, shots of the Rebbe distributing a special booklet with talks about the importance of the Jewish woman, along with a five dollar bill and a piece of honey cake. Over the next five hours, the Rebbe would hand out over 11,000 of the booklet to men, women and children.
