Probably largest Yiddish levaye, the USA has ever seen. need to post the photo where you can literally see tens of thousands.
If you can top 250k that Rav Moshe Feinstein had then we can talk...
Fake news! No such a thing was possible 30+ years ago
Crowd sizes, the original 'alternative facts' (not fake news)!

I was there (the whole Yeshiva went). Wasnít at todayíís levaya, and Iím not aware of local yeshivos that went.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

The NYT claims 20k, so hard to believe there were more than 50k.

Theyre notorious on crowd sizes. More likely they dropped a zero than flipped a 5.
