I know the Tosher Rebbe from my childhood, he is the real thing, a pure and holy soul who never saw anything bad in any Jew he met. A person who fasted 100's if not 1000's of days and broke all his bones in avodas hashem. I don't know his condition now, but many years ago he looked like a survivor of a camp, nothing more than skin and bones. One can not describe his pure middos tovos. Even the non-Jews who worked near him considered him holy and trembled in his presence. I saw it! He will give away his last shirt to the most undeserving person who is begging him for support. His assistants had to intervene sometimes, so he used all kinds of tricks to hide money from them. A person told me once how he asked the Rebbe for Tzedaka money, and the Rebbe removed his shoes and told him look here I hid money here take it. So the Tzadik was walking around with dollar bills under his feet in order to avoid his Gaba'im who were complaining the Yeshiva is bankrupt and those shnorers are undeserving. But he squirreled the gelt away for his purposes. He is also misunderstood because Tosh has become a haven for many Neturai Karta and all kinds of outcasts. But that became so because the Tosher Rebbe tolerates "everybody" and loves everybody. So over the years the place is full of the 'dregs' of Jewish society because by the Rebbe nobody is bad, he can only see good.
But the Tosher Rebbe is not and never was a zealot at all.
