Thousands gathered in Brooklyn to mourn the death of Rabbi Avigdor Miller, a leading Chasidic rabbi. Miller died last Friday at the age of 93. Miller, who was born in Baltimore and sought to bridge American and European traditions of Judaism, spent the final 20 years of his life at Congregation Bais Yisroel, which he founded in Brooklyn.
