Hundreds of מבקשי אמונה chassidim were on hand in Meah Shearim, taking part in the ceremony to burn the wicks from Chanukah.
Prior to beginning the annual event, the Rebbe Shlita spoke of the blow to the kedusha of the camp posed by today’s technology, calling on everyone to burn the technology.
The rebbe explained his father, the Bal Divrei Emunah ZT”L did not place anything into the fire burning the wicks but today, anyone who has an iPhone or any device with internet connectivity, is asked to place into the fire and burn it.
The rebbe held a tisch following the burning during which he handed out coins.
