Thousands of Chassidim from around the world spent an uplifting Yom Kippur at the Rebbe‘s Ohel in Queens, each person absorbed in davening, teshuva, and prayers for a good year.

Several hundred people davened in the minyan held in the room immediately outside the Rebbe’s Ohel with the overflow crowd in the surrounding area. Hundreds more davened in the multiple minyanim held in the air-conditioned tents.

The fast concluded the crowd erupted in joyous singing and dancing, assured that they were inscribed and sealed for a good year physically and spiritually.
