About
In 1974, a new apparition began to make its appearance in the streets of Manhattan. Even in that hubbub of crowd and clamor, this strange vehicle attracted attention.
It was a standard van of the “U-Haul” or “Ryder” variety. It’s back door was rolled up, showing a cargo of one large wooden table, two wooden benches, and a dozen young men with beards and black hats. From a loudspeaker taped to its roof issued forth a medley of Chassidic songs played on high volume—that is, high enough to make itself heard above the din of a Manhattan street corner. Large posters taped to the sides of the moving van proclaimed: “MITZVAH TANK”, “Teffilin on board” and “Mitzvot On The Spot For People On The Go.”

Daily Thought
A true master of life never leaves this world —he transcends it, but he is still within it. He is still there to assist those who are bonded with him with blessing and advice, just as before, and even more so. Even those who did not know him in his corporeal lifetime can still forge with him an essential bond. The only difference is in us: Now we must work harder to connect.
