“… and I will pour down for you blessing.”
The recent birth of a new baby to a couple in Argentina is being attributed to drinking wine blessed by the Rebbe.
Moishe and Nechama Szusterman are members of the Jewish community in Buenos Aires. They were married 14 years ago and had been yearning to bear children, but without success.
Because of their ages, he is 54 and she is 50, doctors were hesitant to provide them with fertility treatments. Family members and friends kept mentioning them in their prayers.
Mrs. Baila Baumgarten, a Chabad Shlucha in Buenos Aires, was well aware of their anguish, when she heard about wine blessed by the Rebbe that is in the possession of Mrs. Chani Lipskar, a fellow Shlucha in Bal Harbour, Florida.
Mrs. Lipskar and her husband Rabbi Sholom Ber Lipskar had asked the Rebbe for a blessing for more children after having a single child, their daughter Devorah Leah.
“The Rebbe blessed us that there would be sons and daughters!” she recalled. “After several years, we were Boruch Hashem blessed with a son Schneur Zalman.”
“After several years, I received this Rebbe Wine from a friend and immediately created a protocol with specific instructions approved by the mazkirus,” she said referring to the Rebbe’s office.
Mrs. Lipskar said: “I believed wholeheartedly that the Rebbe’s blessings to us regarding sons and daughters would materialize through this special blessed wine.”
After hearing about the wine, the Baumgartens contacted the Lipskars, and had a little of the wine brought to Argentina. It was then given to the Szustermans to drink.
Shortly afterward, they were blessed with their first child, which is already being called by community members “a miracle baby,” COLlive was told.
Mrs. Lipskar said, that together with the Szustermans baby, “To date there are 76 babies (as far as I’m aware of) hopefully more, that were born from the special brochos of our holy Rebbe after drinking the wine.”
