By the Grace of G‑d
22nd of Adar I, 5725
Brooklyn, N.Y.
[February 24, 1965]

Greeting and Blessing:

This is to acknowledge receipt of your letter of February 16th, and the previous one. Subsequently, I also received the circulars.

May G‑d grant that all the matters about which you write should proceed with success in every respect, both in your private as well as public affairs. As a matter of fact the two areas are interdependent, for the activities in behalf of the community bring additional Divine blessings in the private activities.

I was sorry to read in the press a report about the financial problem of the Shechita Board, but I am sure that you will not be discouraged by any unpleasantness which is bound to be connected with public work, but will go from strength to strength, and from success to success.

Especially as we are now in the month of Adar, the essential point of which was the “reversal” from darkness to light and from defeat to victory, etc. May it bring an added measure of joy and light in all your affairs.

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
