Sholom uBrocho:

I received your letters, in addition to the Gruss through Rabbi Shmuel Lew.

I wish you and all yours a kosher and joyous Pesach, and may the Zeman Cheiruseinu bring you and all our people true freedom from all limitations and perplexities, material and spiritual, in order to serve G‑d with unhampered joy and gladness of heart,

And may the inspiration of Pesach be carried over and into every day of the year.

With blessing,

M. Schneerson

With reference to your question as to what should be the amount of your Tzedoko, I cannot, of course, specify it for you, since Tzedoko should be given, as the Torah says, “k'fi nidvas liboi,” according to the generosity of one's heart. Therefore, I can only refer you to my general observations in my previous letter. I will add, however, that it would be well that you and Mrs. Jaffe should together decide on the amount, and that you should both do so with joy and gladness of heart. I trust that in this area, too, there will be no difference of opinion between you.
