Keeping the Community Safe: a Yechidus with Mayor John Lindsay

The Rebbe and Mayor Lindsay

Racial tensions have been flaring up over the past few months, and the amount of criminal incidents in New York has escalated. Presented here is a video and newly restored audio of a yechidus the Rebbe had with New York City Mayor John Lindsay in 1968, where they discussed this exact topic.

On the 26th of November 1968, the Rebbe met with the mayor in 770. The two discussed the security of the Crown Heights community, and the necessity for criminal deterrence in general.

In 2013, Living Torah produced an excerpt of that yechidus with subtitles. Now Ashreinu has restored the entire audio, as well as provided a transcript of the dialogue.
