    Rabbi Ya’akov Landau OBM, merited to serve as the Rov of Chabad during the Rebbe Rashab’s Nesius. In a Teshura released last night for the wedding of his grandson, his memoirs were printed.

    ChabadInfo.com presents an exclusive selection of some of those memories, translated into English:

    The Rebbe Rashab would fast many times, however he did not want his wife, Rebbetzin Shterna Sarah to find out about it, and be worried about his health, so he would ask his servant (Mashbak) to eat the food in his stead, and make sure that no one knew about it.

    The Frierdiker Rebbe once entered his father’s (the Rebbe Rashab) room on the morning of Tish’a Be’av and saw his father praying with Tefillin. The Rebbe Rashab justified his action by saying: “What can I do? My Neshama doesn’t let me do otherwise…”

    When the Rebbe Rashab would say a Ma’amar his voice thundered, and it was so loud that it drowned the noise of the church bells that would occasionally ring during the Ma’amar.

    Rebbetzin Shterna Sarah (the Rebbe Rashab’s wife) once related to me, that if the Rebbe Rashab’s Tzitzis would fold over during his sleep, he would immediately wake up to fix it.

    One of the times the Rebbe Rashab went on vacation, my room was next door to his room, and I heard the Rebbe Rashab reciting the Bracha “Al Netilas Yadayim” upon waking up, and he was saying it with such emotion, that I shudder when I recall his voice.
