By the Grace of G‑d
4th of Cheshvan, 5724 [October 22, 1963]
Brooklyn, N. Y.

Greeting and Blessing:

After a long interval, I received your letter of the 29th of Tishrei [October 17], in which you write some highlights of your activities during the month of Tishrei [the month of the High Holidays] in connection with the work of Tz. A. Ch. [Lubavitch Youth Orgnization], the Shuls [synagogues], etc.

We have heard from my father-in-law of saintly memory on several occasions that the way one begins the new year during the [Jewish] month of Tishrei, makes it easier to follow in this spirit throughout the year. May G‑d grant that the good beginning which was made in the month of Tishrei will pave the way for ever growing activities in all matters of Torah throughout the year, in accordance with the principle that all matters of holiness should be on the ascendancy.

As requested, I will remember your daughter, Chava Sarah, in prayer in connection with her birthday, which is today.

With prayerful wishes for Hatzlocho [success] and good news in all your affairs, both personal and communal.

With blessing

By [signed by the secretary]
