More About this Item


Description: Autograph letter signed by Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson. Brooklyn, 1951. Letter to Tamar Gluskin from the Hadar Yosef neighborhood of Tel Aviv. The Rebbetzin mentions "my son" [in his first year as rebbe after the death of his father-in-law, the Rayatz], and she writes that she sent the medicine. She requests that the recipient write her details about life in Eretz Israel and tells of her acclimation to the US. The pious Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson (1880-1965), mother of R. Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the last Chabad-Lubavitch Rebbe. "Eshet Haver" of the Rebbe's father, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, who alongside her husband was active during the Communist rule, first in the city of Yekatrinoslav, of which he was rabbi (today Dnipropetrovsk), and later she exiled with him to Kazakhstan to which he was banished as a penalty for his religious activities. During this time, the rebbetzin produced ink from weeds to enable her husband to write his Torah novellae and later risked her life by taking his writings with her in her wanderings. Rabbi Levi Yitzchak died in Kazakhstan and the rebbetzin crossed the Russian border to Poland, eventually reaching Paris, the city in which her son, the Rebbe, was living at that time. In 1947, she traveled to the US together with the Rebbe and his wife. Approximately three years later, the Rebbe the Rayatz died and was succeeded by Rebbe Menachem Mendel. From then until her death, she was active alongside her son and was very involved in the lives of the Chassidim and in various Chabad activities. She also served as a member of the board of Neshei and B'not Chabad (women's organizations) in the US. On the verso of the letter, in a draft of the recipient's reply. Letter (aerogram), 30X21 cm. Good-fair condition. Stains and wear. Folding marks. Several small tears.
