the seven lubavtich rebbe's are the seven ushpizin. alternatively, the baal shem tov, the maggid of mezritch, plus rebbes I-V.

apparently that's ok, but ushpizot is wacked.

Nope, they're both wacked

In the alternative, the Friersiker Rebbe and the Rebbe MhM Shlita re the ushpizin for SA and ST (because authentic Jews don't live in Israel).

They're both wacked.

Manoach's wife, both as compensation for not having her name appear in her own story and for the name the Midrash gives her.

בראשית רבתי פרשת חיי שרה

כג, א כ"ב נשים כשרות היו בעולם ואלו הן שרה, רבקה, רחל
לאה, סרח בת אשר, יוכבד, מרים, בתיה בת פרעה, דבורה, צללפונית אשת מנוח, חנה, אביגיל, מיכל, בת שבע, אבישג, חולדה הנביאה, יעל, אסתר..

wait, that's only 19

BB 91a

R. Hanan b. Raba further stated in the name of Rab: [The name of] the mother of Abraham [was] Amathlai the daughter of Karnebo;31 [the name of] the mother of Haman was Amathlai, the daughter of ‘Orabti;32 and your mnemonic [may be], ‘unclean [to] unclean, clean [to] clean’.33 The mother of David was named Nizbeth the daughter of Adael. The mother of Samson [was named] Zlelponith, and his sister, Nashyan. In what [respect] do [these names] matter?34 — In respect of a reply to the heretics.35

(31) From Kar, rf ‘lamb’, ucb (‘Mount of) Nebo’.
(32) From Oreb crug ‘raven’.
(33) Haman's grandmother was named after an unclean animal (raven, cf. Lev. XI, 15. Deut. XIV, 14); but Abraham's grandmother bore the name of a clean animal. (V. n. 12, supra.)
(34) Lit. ‘is the outcome’.
(35) Minim (sing. ihn), applied especially to Jew-Christians. Should the minim ask why the names of the mothers of these important figures are not given in the Bible narrative, they can be answered that these had been handed down by oral tradition. [V. Herford, Christianity, p. 326.]

what about when the torah true make up rebbe ushpizin lists?

and what do you have against guests?


Ball Shem Tov was invited into the succah 1st night. (I was a guest and the person inviting was also a guest. The host looked somewhat shocked but didn't want to make a fuss by uninviting.)

R. Yitzchok Landau.
He merits only a footnote on page 115 of Carry Me In Your Heart.

no clue

Yedidyah Lipman Leibowitz, her father's brother.

That is why Nechamah had the same surname as her brother Yeshayah.

Lebowitz, etc.
