A Shliach not home alone
On Motzei Shabbos, while the Shluchos enjoyed the Kinus main Session, their husbands were at home babysitting… The Beis Medrash L’Shluchim brought Shluchim an innovative idea: A chance to hear “Motzei Shabbos stories” about the Rebbetzin recounted by R’ Mendel Notik – a Mashamesh BaKodesh in the Rebbe’s house.
Broadcasted live from a cubicle in Merkos Suite302 - A program which was meant to run from 9:00-10:30, was still going strong at 1:00 AM, emails with questions, comments, and thanks still streaming in.
“Her essence was devotion to the Rebbe! Her contribution to the world (and foremost to Chassidim) was the Rebbe”. She gave up on time with the Rebbe -which she always cherished- on meals with the Rebbe, and on her sleep hours -literally”
“She was up every night literally waiting for the Rebbe to come home - Yechidusen, Farbrengens, sometimes 12:00 AM others 3:00 AM” “She held Chassidim and Shluchim as her children, her devotion and care knew no bounds”
“She was in awe from the style of Mesirus Nefesh of the younger Shluchim, and she knew of real Mesiras Nefesh. Being the daughter of the Frierdiker Rebbe, and growing up in the house of the Rebbe Rashab just enhanced her respect for young Shluchim. At times she would get so emotional that she would stop talking…”
“The Rebbetzin was the epitome of Shleimus” “She was perfectly ready, on time, guarded her words, prepared to serve and help, truly caring for everyone”
