Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka
5661 ~ 5749
Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, wife and life- partner of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe.
At age twenty- seven, Chaya Mushka Schneersohn became the wife of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, also known as the Ramash, while her husband was a world renowed, her life remained more or less hidden, this didn't take away the bravery with risking her own life smuggling candles to Yeshiva students during WW1, heading into exile to accompany her imprisoned father or dutifully supporting her husbands work, her life was always about putting others first.
Before the passing of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, the Rebbe quoted a verse,
"And the living should take to heart "
Urging everyone to learn from the Rebbetzin' life and her ways.
The Rebbetzin wasn't one who would seek attention, or even accept the attention that was given, she simply turned the spotlight away from herself, and shine it on everyone she came in contact with. This was also the reason not many did know her or her life. From the many stories been told, by the ones who really knews her, protrait her as a women to whom Klal Yisroel owes gratitide.
