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.

I take this opportunity to extend to you prayerful wishes also in connection with RSZ’s birthday, that you celebrate it together for many many years, in happy circumstances, with true Yiddish Chasidishe Nachas from each and all of your offspring.

At the same time, I am pleased to acknowledge receipt of your good wishes, which I reciprocate in the words of our Sages, “Whoever blesses others is blessed by G‑d Himself in a most generous measure.” May you and all yours be blessed from His “full, open, holy and ample Hand” both materially and spiritually.

Wishing you and your family a kosher and happy Pesach,

With blessing,

M. Schneerson
