The Toldot Aharon Mobile


Where is the difference ?

To the left you see the Pope in his mobile and to the right, you have the Toldot Aharon Rebbe David Kahn in his wooden mobile in Meron (on Lag Ba'Omer). First I thought that the Rebbe is sitting in that box because of modesty reasons (not to look at women) but then I was told the real reason:

The Rebbe is a Cohen and is thus not allowed to go to a cemetery. While sitting in this box, he is protected from the impurity on a cemetery while he doesn't have to walk on the ground. The Toldot Aharon took him to the place where he was lighting the bonfire in a very kosher way.

But I have to admit: It is really funny !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
