Greetings and blessings,

In response to your letter of the Friday preceding Shabbos Parshas Re’eh, I am happy to read in your letter that you have fixed times for the study of Torah, both Nigleh, [the Torah’s revealed, legal dimension,] and Chassidus. Surely you will be steadfast in this, for these are broad mediums to draw down and receive all forms of good, both material and spiritual.

You mention in your letter that your younger brother is now in our Holy Land. It would be appropriate to suggest to him that he contact the members of the chassidic brotherhood in Jerusalem and explain to him, in a manner appropriate for his nature, the great importance of studying Chassidus, the Tree of Life, 1 particularly in these generations of ikvesa diMeshicha, the time when Mashiach’s approaching footsteps can be heard. As the Zohar has promised: 2 With it, 3 Israel will be redeemed from exile with kindness and mercy. Certainly, with fitting effort, you will succeed in [inspiring] your brother to start [this study].

Thank you for the good news regarding your relative ..., that he has made a worthy match in a good and auspicious time. May it be G‑d’s will that the wedding be at an appropriate time and they build a house in Israel on the foundation of the Torah and its mitzvos.

At an appropriate time, I will remember you at the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, [asking] for a worthy match [for you]. You will certainly let us know of good tidings in this regard.

With blessings for a kesivah vachasimah tovah,

Menachem Schneerson
