Each time the Rebbe distributed dollars, individuals were touched and lives were impacted. Presented here are photos of several highlights and encounters from Sunday Dollars of 25 Iyar 1990 (5750).
From the spring of 1986 on, every Sunday, the Rebbe would stand and distribute dollars, to be given to charity, to anyone who came by his door. Thousands stood in line each week, and to every person he received, the Rebbe offered a blessing, some encouragement, or a word of advice.
The Sunday of 25 Iyar 1990 was no different. The Rebbe saw countless people from all walks of life and had time for them all. The special encounters from that day include the parents of a young girl going in for heart surgery, the president of the National Council of Young Israel, and a newspaper editor with a question about Israeli territorial concessions, amongst others.
