One of the most amazing aspects of the Rebbe’s work with the public was when he would receive people every Sunday morning. That day, he would remain standing from the morning until the evening, greeting people and listening to their requests. The Rebbe would give advice, bless them, and hand each person a dollar bill that had to be redeemed with a charitable donation. Every week, thousands of men, women, and children would stand in line for the valuable experience of meeting the Rebbe.
A woman once asked, “Rebbe, how can you stand for long, spending hours at a time on your feet?” The Rebbe replied, with a warm smile, “Every Jew is like a diamond for me, and when you count diamonds, you are never tired.”
