Scion of generations of Chabad-Lubavitch Rebbes and Rebbetzins, at 27 years of age, Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson became the life partner of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, obm. Though her husband's name would become renowned far-and-wide, her life remained cloaked in utter concealment.
The RebbetzinMy Encounter with the Rebbe
Publisher: JEM, 2009
Whether risking her life to smuggle candles to Yeshiva students during World War 1, heading into exile to accompany her imprisoned father, or steadfastly supporting her husband's work, her life is a tale of putting others first. Upon her passing in 1988, the Rebbe repeatedly quoted the verse "and the living should take to heart" (Ecclesiates 7:2) urging that one learn from the Rebbetzin's life and ways.
Culled from tens of hours of in-depth interviews, The Rebbetzin presents stories told by several of those who knew her. What emerges is a portrait of a woman to whom Klal Yisroel owes a debt of gratitude: The Rebbe's full and deserving life-partner.
Approximate running time: 75 minutes; includes bonus footage; Yiddish; Subtitles: English, Hebrew, Russian, Spanish, and French.
