PHOTOS: Argentina’s Javier Milei Visits the Ohel, Gravesite of Lubavitcher Rebbe, Before Meeting U.S. Officials

Argentina’s President-elect Javier Milei on Monday visited the burial site of the the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, as the first stop of his visit to the United States, ahead of his meetings with U.S. officials.

Milei arrived at the cemetery, located in Queens, New York, just after 9 A.M. with his entourage, where he met Rabbi Simon Jacobson, who has become somewhat of an informal advisor and mentor. Milei was visibly emotional when he met Rabbi Jacobson at the entrance of the site, and they went together to pray at the grave.

The Libertarian Populist Milei is an ardent admirer of Judaism, and has even studied the Torah and considered converting to the Jewish faith from Catholicism, Breitbart News reported.

Jacobson told Breitbart News that Milei called him after Shabbat to notify him that he would be visiting the Ohel (the name of the Schneerson burial site) Monday morning.

“He’s a very spiritual guy, and I think he has that instinct,” Jacobson told Breitbart when asked about Milei’s fascination with the Rebbe. “Some people have that instinct— he just has a sense that it’s true, and it resonates with him.”

IIRC, Schneerson is the guy the Lubavitchers (small Jewish sect) claim was/is the Messiah. Pretty small group in the grand scheme, and they are ostracized by both Christians and Jews.

Odd that Milei is cozying up to them, and making them an initial priority.

Small? Don't the Lubavitchers run the worldwide Chabad Houses? And wasn't Ivanka converted by a Lubavitch rabbi?

“Small? Don’t the Lubavitchers run the worldwide Chabad Houses? And wasn’t Ivanka converted by a Lubavitch rabbi?”

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

From Wikipedia: “In 2018, Marcin Wodziński estimated the total number of Chabad households globally between 16,000 and 17,000, accounting for 13% of the global Hasidic population.”

In the global scheme, pretty small. Collected together, that’s a city of, what, 60,000 or so?

According to the Wiki page you cite, the estimated membership is 90,000 to 95,000, not 60,000.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chabad

n 1951, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson formally accepted the leadership as the seventh Chabad Rebbe. He transformed the movement into one of the most widespread Jewish movements in the world today. Under his leadership, Chabad established a large network of institutions that seek to satisfy religious, social and humanitarian needs across the world.[8] Chabad institutions provide outreach to unaffiliated Jews and humanitarian aid, as well as religious, cultural and educational activities. Before and after his death in 1994, Schneerson has been believed by some of his followers to be the Messiah, with his own position on the matter debated among scholars. Messianic ideology in Chabad sparked controversy in various Jewish communities and is still an unresolved matter. Following his death, no successor was appointed as a new central leader.

In 2018, Marcin Wodziński estimated the total number of Chabad households globally between 16,000 and 17,000, accounting for 13% of the global Hasidic population.[1] The number of those who sporadically or regularly attend Chabad events is far larger; in 2005 the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs reported that up to one million Jews attend Chabad services at least once a year.[9][10] In a 2020 study, the Pew Research Center found that 16% of American Jews participated in Chabad services or activities at least semi-regularly.[11]

The ‘Moshichisten’ are a small and decreasing percent of Chabad. Sometimes the traditional Jewish Biblical belief that in every generation there is a descendant of David worthy to be the messiah is attributed only to Chabad.
