By the Grace of G‑d
Between Purim Koton And Purim Godol, 5736 [February - March, 1976]
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Mr. & Mrs. Mordechai Shoel Landow

Greeting and Blessing:

This is to acknowledge receipt of your correspondence, and may G‑d grant that you should have good news to report in all matters about which you wrote.

Especially as we are now in the auspicious days between Purim Koton and Purim Godol, the festive days of the two Mazeldike months of Adar of this Jewish Leap Year, the highlight of which is, in the words of the Megillah, "For the Jews there was light, joy, gladness and honor." As our Sages explain these words, they have in addition to their plain meaning also the inner meaning of "Light - this is Torah... Honor - this is Tefillin," Tefillin being symbolic of all the Mitzvoth. May this be so also in your case.

Included is, of course, also the Mitzvo of V'Ohavto L'Reacho Komocho, the great principle of our Torah, which makes it the duty and privilege of every Jew to spread the light of the Torah and Mitzvoth in his surroundings. And while all this is a must for its own sake, this is also the way to receive G‑d's blessings in all needs, materially and spiritually.

Wishing you and yours a truly happy, joyous and inspiring Purim,

With blessing,
M. Schneerson
