Greeting and Blessing:

I was pleased to receive regards from you through Rabbi Yitzchok Dubov, who also brought me your letter.

As requested, I will remember you in prayer when visiting the holy resting place of my father-in-law of saintly memory, for the fulfillment of your heart’s desires for good in all the matters about which you write. May G‑d grant that you should have good news to report.

While we are at this time in the period of the Three Weeks, it has always been the Jewish fervent hope, in accordance with prophetic promise, that these days will be turned into days of gladness and joy. Hence they already carry the seeds of auspicious promise.

Needless to say, the way to hasten the fulfillment of the said promise is to do everything possible to remove the causes which brought about the period of the Three Weeks, namely “because of our sins we have been exiled from our land.” Consequently the effort on the part of every Jew to spread the Torah and Mitzvoth helps to clear the way, and to hasten, the end of the Golus and the beginning of the true Geulo. This is particularly important in the case of one whose field is Jewish education, as in your case, in accordance with your writing.

With blessing of Hatzlocho in Beth-Hillel,
