Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greeting and Blessing:

After the long interval, I received your letter of June 15th, and I was pleased to read in it that all is well with you, and that you are maintaining the study period of which we spoke when you were here.

Needless to say, I am sorry to note that nothing has materialized as yet in the matter of a Shidduch. I hope, however, that you will be able to concentrate on it from now on, and in a way that accords with the teachings of our Torah, Toras Chaim.

With regard to the question of a vacation trip to the Holy Land, it would be advisable if you have friends and acquaintances there who would be helpful in the matter of a Shidduch, if by then, nothing materializes here. As for the question of vaccination, etc., which you would require if you make the trip in November, there is no basis for any anxiety in that respect. However, as indicated, if a suitable Shidduch should present itself here before that time, the trip would not be advisable at this time for many reasons.

You ask when is the proper time to say the daily quota of Tehillim. Generally speaking, the best time to say it is immediately after the morning prayers. However, if for some reason you are pressed for time, it could be said throughout the day, from sunlight to sunset.

I trust you had a happy and inspiring Shovuos, the Season of our Receiving the Torah, and that the inspiration will be lasting throughout the year.

With blessing,
