Tens of thousands of Jews are expected to visit the gravesite of the Lubavitcher Rebbe Tuesday, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson (z”l), who passed away 19 years ago.

Thousands stood in the rain Monday night at the Queens gravesite at the beginning of the third day of the Hebrew month of Tammuz.

The Rebbe was arguably the most influential rabbi in the past generations. He is credited with reinvigorating a decimated Jewish people after the devastation of the Holocaust and creating the largest Jewish organization in the world, with more than 3,300 social, religious and educational institutions in 80 countries.
