The Rebbetzin - Moshiach's Queen

The Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka  ע''ה
Now, for the 1st time, we can see who was the wife of the Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach! At least for me it's a first. I only had seen a few still photos of her, and, as a relative latecomer to Chabad, never was part of the community in her days.

I bring you here a link to the 1st part of a 3-part video, where she testifies in court. (Succeeding parts you can find in a right-sided panel, scrolling down if necessary.)

The Rebbetzin is giving testimony in a case wherein the Rebbe sued a family member to get back into possession for the Lubavitch Library those seforim that had been pilfered for their resale.

The Rebbe felt extreme concern during this court trial. When it was over and Lubavitch won, dancing and jubilation ensued for a full week; In fact, the day became a holiday in commemoration of this great victory. That day in Chabad is called "Didan Notzach" (דידן נצח) - the 5th of Tevet.

It is believed the Rebbetzin's testimony, when she said the library belonged to the Rebbe and that the Rebbe belonged to the Chassidim, is what finalized the case in favor of Lubavitch. (You can hear that one-minute audio clip here.)

If you know some Yiddish, have clear headphones or speakers to listen to carefully, you will be privy to some comments she makes that will simply amaze you. For example, when she laughs and calls lawyers jockeying for control "like children"; When she refers to diamond jewelry pieces as "shmatehs" ("rags"); As she instinctively laughs when a lawyer suggests she cares for "furs".

What an amazing personality; Everything exudes from a pinnacle of humility! This is the daughter of the Previous Rebbe and wife of the Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach!
