Greeting and Blessing:

On the occasion of the forthcoming Yom-Tov Pesach, I send you my prayerful wishes that the Festival of Our Freedom bring you and yours true freedom, freedom from anxiety material and spiritual, from anything which might distract from serving G‑d wholeheartedly and with joy, and to carry over this freedom and joy into the whole year.

Wishing you and yours a kosher and happy Pesach,


M. Schneerson

P.S. I trust that you have duly received my letter. I have been somewhat concerned these last few days since I have not heard from you. However, I want to take it as a sign that things are moving in the right direction.

To reiterate, in the spirit of Purim, may you have “Light, joy, gladness and honor,” and in the spirit of Pesach, as above, true freedom from all manner of stress, anxiety and anything distracting from serving G‑d wholeheartedly and with joy in personal, as well as communal life.
