Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, of righteous memory, was born in Babinovitch, in present-day Belarus, in 1901. Upon her birth, her grandfather, the Fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Sholom Dovber, wrote from abroad, “If she hasn’t been named yet, she should be called Chaya Mushka,” as shown in this letter that now resides in the library of Agudas Chasidei Chabad. In 1920, when the Rebbe was ill, his 19-year-old granddaughter cared for him.
