"I can't imagine a situation before Gimmel Tamuz that a Jew would not go to the Previous Rebbe's Ohel. I just can't picture it," said Rabbi Klein.

As already reported last week a special panel of veteran chassidim, among therm, Rabbi Binyomin Klein addressed hundreds of Temimim and told over eyewitness personal experiences with the Rebbe during Succos and Simchas Torah.

The Temimim who had come from Chabad Yeshivos all over the world  had a chance to ask questions too. Rabbi Klein replied to their questions. One of the questions was how one can be "mekushar" to the Rebbe if he never saw him. Rabbi Klein returned to the podium and delivered a fiery speech about "Hiskashrus" to the Rebbe, Moshiach, unity among chassidim and going to the Ohel.

"I can't imagine a situation before Gimmel Tamuz that a Jew would not go to the Previous Rebbe's Ohel. I just can't picture it," said Rabbi Klein. "A Jew once came to the Rebbe before Rosh Hashana and asked the Rebbe if he can go the Previous Rebbe's Ohel during Chol Hamoed. The Rebbe replied:  It depends. if you're going to the cemetery then no but if you're going to the Rebbe then of course the answer is yes.

1. if you're going to the cemetery then no but if you're going to the Rebbe then of course the answer is yes
if you're going to the cemetery then no but if you're going to the Rebbe then of course the answer is yes
This means if you're going to the Ohel because you believe the Previous Rebbe is Alive then of course you should go
But if you're going because you consider the ohel a cemetary (the Previous Rebbe is not alive) then don't go
