No. 562

This letter was addressed to R. Nissan Nemenov, the spiritual mentor of the Lubavitch yeshivah in Brunoy, France.
B"H, 5 Adar, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

In response to your personal question: In my humble opinion, you should bring happiness to the groom and bride[243] through Chabad melodies and the like. "Whoever brings happiness [to a groom...] merits...."[244] May we merit "the voice of a groom and the voice of a bride" and "the rejoicing of the groom together with the bride."[245]

It is a well-known [practice of] the Rebbeim[246] in particular, I heard this with regard to the Rebbe Maharash that when they would deliver a maamar, they would say specific words that were relevant to individual listeners and these words would be heard only by the person to whom they were relevant. The Rebbe [Rashab], however, requested of his father and his request was granted that he hear all of these words. I heard this from my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, hk"m.

In the maamar released for the day of [the Rebbe's] passing,[247] there are several astonishing[248] statements. In my humble opinion, the resolution of your question is found in the beginning of sec. 5.[249] Certainly, you will internalize what is stated at the beginning of sec. 5 and communicate it to the groom and bride and the guests. I conclude with blessings of mazel tov, mazel tov for the groom and bride. May their marriage be auspicious and may they build a faithful house in Israel, [raising] blessed offspring, revealing [that their marriage] is an eternal structure.

With blessings of mazel tov,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson

   

Notes:

  1. (Back to text) [R. Nissan had asked about the wedding of his daughter, scheduled to be celebrated on 11 Adar at a time when the chassidic brotherhood was still struggling with how to come to terms with the passing of the Rebbe Rayatz.]

  2. (Back to text) [Cf. Berachos 6b.]

  3. (Back to text) [The wedding blessings.]

  4. (Back to text) [The original uses the term, nesiim (plural of nasi).]

  5. (Back to text) [I.e., the maamar entitled Basi LeGani, 5710.]

  6. (Back to text) [The term the Rebbe uses is Baal Shemska;i.e., just as the Baal Shem Tov revealed miracles of a wondrous and astonishing nature, so, too, there are wondrous and astonishing statements in this maamar.]

  7. (Back to text) [There the maamar speaks of transcending the limits of one's mind, and associates this idea with rejoicing at a wedding.]
