P.S. I have just received your letter, and I was, of course, pleased to read about the improvement in business. May G‑d grant that this, too, continue at a growing pace, and that it be in accord with the Old Rebbe’s teaching: “G‑d turns ruchnius into gashmius and the Jewish people turn gashmius into ruchnius” (see Hayom Yom on Elul 27; p. 91).

With regard to my position relating to siddur Chuppah and Kiddushin, you can gather it from the fact that in about two weeks a cousin of mine will be married in N.Y. to a talmid of the Lubavitcher Yeshiva, but the mesader Kiddushin will be one of the Anash Rabbonim.

Enclosed is a copy of my Rosh Hashanah message, which, although it will reach you after Rosh Hashanah, is actually of timely interest all year round.
