Sholom uBrocho:

Thank you for your letters and description, though brief, of the Yud Tes Kislev Farbrengen. May the inspiration of all the participants be lasting throughout the year, for this is the essential purpose of this “Rosh Hashanah” for Chassidus, similar to that of Rosh Hashanah whose influence, materially and spiritually, lasts throughout the year.

You are right in assuming that there is no objection on my part as to the time and place of the wedding, in a happy and auspicious hour, as long as both sides agree on the time and place.

As for the young couple's plans after the wedding, there was some discussion on this subject without final decision, as also in regard to their settling in general, for they had no definite suggestions to offer, nor did I hear from them any suggestions that you or the Chosson's parents might have made.

From time to time I see the clippings which your son Avrohom submits to me, and, of course, I follow your communal activities with keen interest.

In these days of Chanukah, may G‑d grant that all matters of Torah and Mitzvoth and the material blessings coming through them advance in a growing measure, as taught by the Chanukah candles, and that all your affairs, personal and communal, likewise flourish in a steadily increasing manner.

With blessings,

M. Schneerson

P.S. Just received your cable and Pidyon, which will be read at the Tziyun.
