Being a 'lamplighter' of Jewish souls is even more emphatically relevant to the Jewish woman. She is the actual candle-lighter who was given the special Divine assignment, extraordinary privilege and bright mitzvah of lighting the candles for the holy Shabbos and festivals; and in a deeper spiritual sense ... she is the first to light up the young little souls of the infants until they begin to shine on their own.
- Adapted from the Letter of the Rebbe MHM to
the Lubavitch Women's Organization Convention, 1980
We are the women of N'shei Chabad of Crown Heights. Our mission is to usher in the imminent redemption and be mekabel pnei Moshiach Tzidkanu.
