According to two aides who assisted in the Rebbe's home, Rabbis Shalom Ber Gansburg and Chaim Baruch Halberstam, they never heard the Rebbe calling for his wife, the Rebbetzin, when he needed something. Rather, he would approach her and speak directly, face-to-face.

At a Chassidic gathering in Montreal this year in honor of the Rebbetzin's anniversary of passing, Rabbi Leibel Wolowik, a Jew with a big heart, told me, "Many marital issues, arguing and bickering, stem from a spouse screaming across the house demanding something s/he wants. If spouses would approach each other and ask nicely – and perhaps not ask at all if the other spouse is occupied – this would resolve many issues in the home."
