Coming to the Rebbe Even Today

In 5710, following the passing of the Previous Rebbe, the Rebbe instructed the Chassidim which turned to him for guidance during the interim period, before he officially assumed leadership, to continue to write to the Previous Rebbe and ask for his blessing at his resting place. "The Rebbe will find a way to answer," the Rebbe explained.

In that spirit, tens of thousands of Chassidim and many others still write to the Rebbe today and visit his resting place in the Montefiore Cemetery in Queens, New York. It has been demonstrated on countless occasions that the Rebbe indeed finds a way to answer their questions, fulfill their requests and bless them with success, salvation, healing and everything they need. 

Those who cannot physically visit his resting place could make use of modern technology and send a letter in a discreet manner to the Chabad House near the Ohel, and the Rebbe's secretaries who work there on a constant basis, twenty four hours a day, every day of the year, will place the letter at the gravesite.

The root of this tradition is based on the teaching of Kabbalah and Chasidism, wherein the Rebbe's ability to be attentive to his flock after his passing is much greater than his ability to do so during his lifetime. During his physical lifetime, his sublime soul "dwelled" in a physical body, and was therefore bound by the constraints of time and space. After his passing, his presence among us is completely spiritual and he is free to communicate without the constraints of the physical world.

Indeed, the Rebbe's sphere of influence has grown; men, women and children of all backgrounds connect with him and to turn to him in times of need; they feel that a genuine righteous man is attentive to them and prays to God to provide them with their needs, both physically and spiritually.
