Nanny for Chabad in Mumbai to pose naked

Nanny for Chabad in Mumbai to pose naked

In a Tel Aviv press conference Tuesday, Sandra Samuel, the nanny for the murdered Chabad emissary in Mumbai, says she wants to pose naked in Playboy to bring more happiness into the world. She says after such a sad and depressing event, all she wants to do is use her body for a mitzvah to make as many people as possible happy.

After the death of her employers, Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, Samuel was upset to hear the first word out of Chabad central was about fundraising. “It seems inappropriate that the first words to remember this father and successful fundraiser were a fundraising speech,” she said. So, instead, Samuel wants to commemorate the joy her boss brought Jews everywhere by posing naked, bringing smiles to the faces of lonely Chabad emissaries worldwide.

The late, great Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, wanted to spread the word of Chabad and God all over the world, so he set out to build a Chabad house anywhere in the world where one could find ten Jews and buy Coca-Cola. As it says in the old commercials, “Ain’t nothin’ like the real thing baby!”.

Although the Chabad Hassidim are most well known for their uniformly conservative dressed members putting up outposts everywhere in the world, it is less known the reason was to operate a sort of amateur kosher hotel service, Samuel said. She then went on to ask, “What is the main thing that goes on in hotels, besides a family vacation? Besides families going to Disney world, it usually involves nudity, so I feel this is the best way to carry on the Chabad tradition, and support myself, now that I have lost my primary form of employment,” Samuel said.

Samuel went on to detail exactly how often she found stains from bodily emissions on the sheets of guests to the rabbi’s house.

“As the housekeeper I took care of the kids, but I also changed the sheets, and there was a lot of intercourse over Shabbes between our various guests,” She said.

A Chabad spokesperson in Crown Heights confirmed that their emissaries allow married houseguests to sleep in the same room, but require unmarried couples to sleep separately.
