Pictorial Highlights #4: Dollars 24 Av 1991

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 24 Av 1991 (5751).

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 24 Av 1991 was no different. The Rebbe saw countless people from all walks of life and had time for them all – including a New York Assemblyman, a kindergarten teacher, and am Israeli businessman, amongst others.
