Last night as the crowd expectantly awaited the lighting of the bonfire an announcement was made in the name of the Rebbe requesting all chassidim who live in the diaspora and own Smartphones to throw them into the bonfire.
The gabbai also told the chassidim in advance of the ceremony that when Reb Herschel Kahn, of RCCS asked the Rebbe what can we do about the terrible childhood illnesses that are becoming increasingly more common- the Rebbe answered, "Every burnt machine [Smartphone] is worth another burning illness".
Many of the visitors were touched by the Rebbe's response and on the spot gave over their phones to the Rebbe. The Rebbe did not touch the phones, and so his gabbai threw them into the fire. The Rebbe instructed everyone to say in unison," And you shall remove evil from your midst, Blessed is he who sanctifies His name in public."
So now, we are all waiting with bated breath when the holy rebbe will instruct his followers to throw the pedophiles and molesters into the fire!
