P.S. Needless to say the fact that your question as to the advisability of selling part of the lot belonging to the Shul remained unanswered can only have one explanation, and that is that I am completely unreceptive to the idea. Indeed, it surprises me that there should have been any doubt in your mind about it, since you know that our slogan is “u'foratzto” which means expansion and new acquisitions, rather than contraction or sale.

In general, I believe that even from a purely financial viewpoint, there is no need to have any regrets, inasmuch as judging by your past experience, the transaction would not have been a success, and would have entailed problems; for what pressure could you apply upon the would-be buyers to observe and fulfill all the terms meticulously!
