Greeting and Blessing:

I duly received your letter of October 2, and in the meantime you must also have received regards from me from Rabbi Shemtov.

On the eve of Yud Tes Kislev which, as you know, is the Rosh Hashanah of Chassidus, I wish you a fruitful and blessed Chassidic year, filled with Torah and Mitzvoth, as they are illuminated by Chassidic light and warmth; this to be coupled with growing success in your private affairs, less anxiety and more peace of mind to devote yourself to good spiritual influences, both at home and in the community at large.

Hoping to hear good news from you and with blessing,

By Nissen Mindel

Enclosed is a Yud Tes Kislev booklet which I am sure you will find of timely interest.
