By the Grace of G‑d
15th of Teveth, 5721 [January 3, 1961]
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greeting and Blessing:

I received your letter of Rosh Chodesh Teveth, in which you ask for guidance in your efforts to spread the Torah and Mitzvoth.

The best way to inspire others is by showing a living example, and by pointing to many young people, native-born, who are strict observers of the Torah and Mitzvoth, and cannot be called "old-fashioned" by any means, who are leading a meaningful and happy life.

Since many other young people look up to you for guidance and inspiration, it is needless to add that your own conduct should be the best possible. While it is necessary to continue your efforts in a growing measure and with persistence, you should bear in mind that the ways of the Torah are the ways of pleasantness, and that the best way to influence others is through a pleasant, friendly and sincere approach, for we are assured that words coming from the heart penetrate the heart.

Wishing you success and hoping to hear good news from you,

With blessing,

I hope that you know of, and observe, the three daily Shiruim of Chumash, Tehillim and Tanya.
