Metropolitan Tel Aviv, with 2.5 million Jews, is the world's largest Jewish city. To the common people, Besht was admirable.

He speaks without an accent, wears normal clothes, and flirts ruthlessly with any woman around him. It is also interesting --and surprising-- to note that during his years of his leadership, the Rebbe addressed the faith/science nexus on a variety of levels.
