By the Grace of G‑d
25th of Tammuz, 5719
Brooklyn, N.Y.
[July 31, 1959]

Greeting and Blessing:

I received your letter of July 24th, and I am sorry that you seem to be upset about the fact that the Yeshiva Administration decided to postpone your son’s admission to the Yeshiva here. Needless to say, they had the interest of your son at heart, as they explained to you the difficulties and problems involved.

On the other hand, if you think that these apprehensions are exaggerated, and that despite all that they have written to you, you still feel that you would like your son to be admitted to the Yeshiva here, do not hesitate to write to me and I will be glad to persuade the Yeshiva Administration to accept your son as a student. In this event, I think that the best time for your son to come would not be now, when most of the students are dispersed on various missions of the Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch, and the whole Yeshiva program is greatly curtailed, etc. The best time for him would be to come closer to Rosh Hashanah, when the Yeshiva program begins again on a normal keel, and all the students will be present then, including those from England, who might be of help to your son in getting adjusted here.

May G‑d grant that the period of בין המצרים1 will soon be turned into a time of gladness and joy and נחלה בלי מצרים2.

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
