The name of the recipient of this letter was not released.

B”H, 15 Kislev, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

As I promised, I am enclosing the sichah of Shemini Atzeres and Simchas Torah which had been [presented to]1 my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe Shlita, despite the fact that you certainly remember the sichos of those days, [for] they should illuminate all the days of the year.

Also enclosed is a copy of a letter of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe Shlita, and the kuntres for the near-approaching Yud-Tes Kislev.2 Undoubtedly, you will study them with the appropriate concentration and endeavor to carry out [the instructions] contained in these letters.

Take note of the maamar in the kuntres that begins speaking about the positive quality of peace and of the Priestly Blessings.3 As is well known, when our Sages relate the praise of Aharon,4 [they describe him as being one who] “loved peace and pursued peace.” (They do not, however, remain content with this [and add]): “loving the created beings (see the interpretation [of that term] in Tanya, ch. 32)5 and drawing them close to the Torah.” [Aharon’s] descendants should also conduct themselves in this manner.

With wishes for everlasting good in all matters,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
