The sixth of Adar is the yahrzeit of Rabbi Shmaryahu Gurary obm (Rashag) brother-in-law of the Rebbe. Rabbi Gurary was the executive director of the Yeshiva "Tomchei Temimim for 50 years.
Shabbos Parshas Terumah following the Rashag's passing the Rebbe spoke about him saying that since he was appointed by the Previous Rebbe to head the yeshiva, this is also alluded to in his name Shmaryahu ben Menachem Mendel and the Rebbe continued to elaborate on his name.
The following are copies of letters that the Rashag wrote to the Rebbe as well as the Rebbe's replies to his letters in the Secretariat. There is also a copy of a check that the Rebbe wrote out to the yeshiva for the amount of $75. (By mistake the Rebbe's address is written 270 instead of 770).
Our thanks to Rabbi Moshe Meir Gluchovsky, director of the United Lubavitcher Yeshivos - 770 for providing us with this material.
