Letter of Blessings from the Lubavitcher Rebbe – Tammuz 1967 – To Rabbi Chaim Shalom Segal, Upon the Birth of His Grandson Nechemia and the Wedding of His Son Binyamin Ze'ev Segal
Letter from Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneersohn – the Lubavitcher Rebbe, with his signature. Brooklyn NY, 4th Tammuz 1967.
Typewritten on the official stationery of the rebbe, with his signature.
Addressed to R. Chaim Shalom Segal in Jerusalem, "in response to his news that a son was born to his daughter Mrs. Chaya Tzivia, and that his parents circumcised him and named him Nechemia" (R. Nechemia Feldman, son of R. Yaakov Asher Feldman head of the Mateh Aharon Kollel and author of Katav Moshe).
In his letter, the rebbe blesses: "Just as he has entered the Covenant, may he enter Torah, marriage and good deeds, and may they raise him in prosperity. May they reap from him and all their progeny much true Jewish Chassidic satisfaction".
At the end of the letter, near his signature, the rebbe added a blessing on the occasion of the wedding of his son R. Binyamin Ze'ev Segal (head of the Kollel and rabbi of the Baal HaTanya synagogue in Jerusalem): "With Mazal Tov wishes for the wedding of his son R. B.Z. at a good and auspicious time".
R. Chaim Shalom HaLevi Segal (1918-1983), founder and mashpia of the Chabad Beit Yehuda synagogue in Nachlaot, Jerusalem, sixth generation descendant of the Baal HaTanya. He studied extensively Rashi's commentary on the Torah and authored the Tosefet Rashi series on the Bible.
