Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:00:00 EST

Their attempt was ambitious, but when 4,000 rabbis took the so-called "mannequin challenge," the result was something less than statuesque.

Chabad Emissaries Do the Best Mannequin Challenge - Tablet Magazine

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:00:00 EST

...But, heck, overall this is pretty fantastic. There’s the necessary shifty camerawork and people standing at all different depths, and there are even a few of NYPD’s finest involved. Not to mention that a majority of the thousands of rabbis in the stacked in the background are playing along. So yes, while it ain’t perfect, I’d still watch it on repeat, which is the mark of success of a video meme. Good on you, Chabad. Watch it here.

...Hoenlein reminded the audience that the Rebbe believed that “what we have in common is much greater than our differences” and that “he had a sense of responsibility to every Jew, including those who seemed most remote from him.” From Hoenlein’s perch in Manhattan, South Dakota is as remote as it gets, but that is, in fact, the latest permanent outpost for Chabad-Lubavitch, which will soon open a Chabad center there, in Sioux Falls.
