Letter Handwritten and Signed by Rebbetzin Nechama Dina Schneersohn, Wife of Rebbe Rayatz of Lubavitch – 1961 – Addressed to R. Azriel Zelig Slonim
Letter (approx. 8 lines) handwritten and signed by Rebbetzin Nechama Dina Schneersohn, wife of Rebbe Rayatz of Lubavitch. [New York], Sunday, 7th Iyar 1961. Yiddish.
Addressed to her relative R. Azriel Zelig Slonim. In her letter, the Rebbetzin blesses: "Wishing you a good journey and success in your work. Enclosed is my gift of 50 dollars, use it in good health and enjoy it", and signs "Your relative, Nechama Dina Schneersohn".
This letter was presumably given to R. Azriel Zelig before his return to Eretz Israel, after his visit to the Lubavitcher Rebbe in Shevat-Iyar 1961 (Eved Melech, chapter 28, pp. 322-324).
Rebbetzin Nechama Dina Schneersohn (1881-1971), wife of Rebbe Rayatz. She was the daughter of R. Avraham Schneersohn of Kishinev, son of Rebbe Yisrael Noach of Niezhin, son of the Tzemach Tzedek of Lubavitch. Their wedding took place in Elul 1897. She was devotedly involved in her husband’s monumental work. When her husband was arrested by the communists in 1927, she deftly and courageously orchestrated his release, at peril of her life.
R. Azriel Zelig Slonim (1897-1971), born in Hebron to R. Ze'ev Dov, grandson of Rebbetzin Menucha Rachel Slonim, daughter of the Mitteler Rebbe. He was a leading Chabad communal activist, member of Agudas Chassidei Chabad and director of Kollel Chabad. He was one of the founders of Irgun N'shei UBnos Chabad and the Beit Chana institution, and helped establish Shikun Chabad in Jerusalem.
