An interesting letter has surfaced at an auction house written by Rebbetzin Nechama Dina Schneerson, regarding the leadership of Lubavitch Chassidism after the passing of her husband the Rayatz.
The letter dated the 13th of Tishrei, 1950, was typewritten in Yiddish on the Rebbetzins official stationery, and sent to Chabad rabbis and chassidim in Jerusalem
In this letter the Rebbetzin writes: “I have received your letter of 26th Menachem Av. The unity among our friends and their fierce determination that the golden dynasty should not be broken are a small consolation for me. However, unfortunately, due to reasons that I cannot divulge here, I cannot personally get involved in this matter. The chassidim shall proceed as they see fit. I wish all a Gmar Chatima Tova for a year of blessing and peace”.
