Chana Schneerson, (1880-1964), was the wife of Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, a Chabad Hasidic rabbi in Yekatrinoslav, Ukraine and the mother of the seventh Chabad-Lubavitch Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.

She was born Chana Yanovsky in 1880, on the 28th of Tevet, in Nikolayev, Ukraine, to Rabbi Meir Shlomo and Rachel Yanovsky. She was the eldest of four children: two sisters, Gittel and Ettel, and a younger brother, Yisrael Leib, who passed away as a youth. Rabbi Meir Shlomo was chief rabbi of Nikolayev.[1]

As a teenager, Chana was known for her scholarship, and when a maamar (Chasidic discourse) would arrive from Lubavitch, she would meticulously and faithfully transcribe it, making it available for other Chasidim.

In 1900, she married Levi Yitzchak, a great grandson of the third Rebbe of Lubavitch, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, also known as the Tzemach Tzedek. The wedding took place on the 13th of Sivan, in Nikolayev. The couple gave birth to three sons, Menachem Mendel, Dovber, and Yisroel Aryeh Leib. Their eldest son, Menachem Mendel was later to become the seventh Rebbe of Lubavitch.

In 1947 she immigrated to the United States, where she lived near her son Menachem Mendel until her death in 1964. [2]

In 2012, her memories, which she penned during the years 1947 until 1963, were published bu Kehot Publication Society.
