The rabbi also came to the Ring, and with him the rebbetzin.
Usually the relation was this: the Rav they loved but vexed, the rebbetzin they hated but feared.
The "rebbetzin" is probably a phenomenon belonging to a past epoch.
The real rebbetzin, the one who is exactly what a rebbetzin should be, is proud and conscious of her dignity.
With his beautiful nature, he was no match for them, but they trembled before the rebbetzin.
The rebbetzin has been suffering two or three months with rheumatism, and lies in another room.
I tell you there was a to-do when they went to receive him and his rebbetzin; they rode as far as Kandrzin and met him there.
The more modest and simple the Rav, the haughtier and more exigent the rebbetzin.
