By the Grace of G‑d
24th of Sivan, 5719
Brooklyn, N.Y.
[June 30, 1959]

Greeting and Blessing:

I received your two letters of June 24th and 25th, and as requested, replied by cable to the effect that you must retain… executive control in the Shechitah board, but as to the rank – whether as President or Vice-President – this was of secondary consideration. I am in agreement with the Dayanim that if in order to retain such control it is necessary for you to be President, then the public good has a priority over the personal feelings of an individual, especially in so vital a communal matter as Kashrus. On the other hand, if you could still… as Vice-President, then I would leave it to your judgment as far as the particular office is concerned.

With regard to your son, according to the procedure the matter has been referred to the Yeshivah administration, from whom you will hear direct.

Hoping to hear good news from you always,

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
