By the Grace of G‑d
15th of Kislev, 5724 [December 1, 1963]
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greeting and Blessing:

This is to acknowledge receipt of your recent letters and enclosures.

I trust there is an improvement in your health, as well as in the domestic affairs, and may G‑d grant that the improvement continues from good to better. All the more so that Jews are considered "Royal Princes", and a prince surely deserves the best, especially when one is engaged in the holy work of educating these royal princes, in accordance with the will of our Father in Heaven. It is also well known that our Nsiim, beginning with the Baal Shem Tov, devoted their prime attention to the education of Jewish children, and even before the Baal Shem Tov revealed himself as the leader of the Chassidim and the teacher of his numerous adult followers, he had been the teacher, even an assistant teacher, helping in the education of very small children.

No doubt you are making the necessary preparations for the forthcoming Yud-Tes Kislev, according to the various groups and ages of the children. May G‑d grant everything to be with Hatzlocho, and that the inspiration of Yud-Tes Kislev should be with you and every one of us throughout the year.

With blessing
M. Schneerson
