Nice picture. Is that a handkerchief in his breast pocket?

There's a picture of the Rebbe with Rayatz with the same hat but a longer beard. Was that picture retouched?

Fremder said...

Sorry if this question will offend, but did he trim his beard at any stage?

Tzig i want an honest answer do u think the rebbe was a kodosh vitohor his whole life say like r arehle belzer.Or do u think that he shteiged as he got older and looking back he probably would have changed things from his youth if he had another chance?

I have my doubts about the integrity of this picture. The traditional ludicrous doctoring gartel can be seen here:
http://www.chabad.org/news/article_cdo/aid/665507/jewish/Rebbes-Friend-Remembers-Paris.htm

The eyes are also different in both pictures etc

but there is something about the shoulders/body that makes it look unnatural to me (I know he had a huge head/forehead)

He's wearing a tie! ha'yitochein?

Guravitzer said...

Yes. that is a handkerchief.

You can watch the evolvement of the Rebbe's beard through the pictures of each year. The Rebbe's beard is always even, through 5754. At first it was short, then rolled up (you can tell by the smoothness of the edge whether a beard is rolled (smooth) or trimmed (sharp)), then fully grown and squared off.

I didn't realize this was a conspiracy theorists' convention. It's fun to watch.

Does anyone see the doctored "Horns" that they covered up?

That is probably the reason Jewish Rabbis wear hats, to cover the Jewish horns. I think the hat is a fake .....

To Isaac Balbin -

Re your comment: It is indeed quite similar, but still a different picture.

See (link below) Berel Levine's estimate, that it was taken in close proximity to the other photo. - Plus, more history and estimates on the last 3 new photos:

Look at the Rebbes Reshimos and the correspondence with his father from that stage in life, and you will conclude its much deeper kedusha then the holy Reb Arele Belzer ZY"A

A lot of fotoshop here

this Pic is not autentic

there r many similars pics, always at the window. it is like the Chabd.org with the gartel, look at the hands, in the pockets, it is not natural at all

The Lub Rebbe was born on a Friday April 18, exactly like this year we can also celebrate and take good achloites now

If something in these pics, you can tell that he LUB is haKOdosh, there is a special radiance like only a Tzaddik can reflect

Shimon said...

Sorry guy, usually im not into conspiracies but look at those two pictures:

1. hat shape and shadows
2. nose
3. beard and shadows
4. collar on the right side

The head is THE SAME in both pictures

Isaac Balbin said...

Mottel,

Thanks for your delightful insult. Was that your education or despite it?

I guess I should have "guessed" from the Shabbos hat ... not!
Or, perhaps I should have just known that pictures are always real.

balbin you can see in the chabad.org picture the rebbe is wearing a sirtuk, what doctored gartel?

look at the background, windows, blinds, even the sihloette of the hat, i think you lads are off your tree's. go back to roswell

If you hear the accounts of the people who knew him in his youth, his letter's and conduct at that time, you see that he was (In the words of his mother) a Tzaddik , a Kadosh from the womb, maybe even to a greater extant then R' Ahrele Z"TZVKL ZY"A.
