I was gratified to hear from Rabbi Jacobs about your personal interest in his educational work and youth activities and of your warm relationship with the Jewish community in general. This further strengthens my confidence in your continued encouragement in behalf of these activities, so vital in the present day and age.

With prayerful wishes for your success in your office as well as in your personal affairs, and for the wellbeing and prosperity of all the citizens of your noble city, and

With esteem and blessing,
M. Schneerson
