The Rebbe’s mother, Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson, passed away on the 6th of Tishrei 1974 (5725). Ashreinu presents a playlist of stories, lessons, and prayers from the Rebbe regarding his mother.
“Never had I seen such incredible energy as my mother displayed then in attending to the refugees’ needs, day and night. It was so outstanding that although I was then in Cheder, not in the house, it remained engraved in my memory forever.”
“…What lesson can we learn from this, on her Yahrtzeit, when we live in a free country [and do not suffer from this persecution]?”
“…Every Jew is a “refugee”, for we are in Galus! Therefore, every Jew needs the help that a refugee requires. The very fact that we don’t feel that we are missing anything is itself indicative of our low spiritual state.”
