By the Grace of G‑d

Blessings and Greetings!114

This1 is a reply to the letter in which you write of your mood, your hope, and your request of G‑d that you should bear healthy children.

Since this is one of the most important mitzvos in our holy Torah, the Torah of Life,89 one must be firm in one’s trust in the Creator of the world, that He will make it possible for you and your husband to fulfill it. However, it is self-understood that one cannot point out to G‑d on the calendar that this must happen at the time that appears right to oneself. For since G‑d is the wellspring of good, it is certain that He knows what time is good, and that is when He will fulfill your hearts’ desires in a positive way. One can only — with a strong trust in the fulfillment of one’s request — pray that this should come about as soon as possible.

As to what you write about losing hope, G‑d forbid, a daughter of Israel must not say this, because G‑d is omnipotent, and He desires that things should be good for every Jew not only spiritually, but also on the actual material level.

With blessings that your prayer on the above subject will be fulfilled soon and that we should hear glad tidings from you,
