This letter was sent to R. Michael Teitelbaum, one of the chassidim who was at that time in a refugee camp in Europe.

B”H, 3 Elul, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

In reply to your letter of 28 Menachem Av in which you ask about moving [to the U.S.]: It is true and correct that my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, said that since times have changed, everyone can inquire about moving [to the U.S.] again. 1 Since you are asking in your letter — and R. Yitzchak Meir [also] asked on your behalf — he has certainly communicated my opinion to you: that if you have the possibility of doing so, you should endeavor to obtain the necessary papers to immigrate to the U.S. May G‑d grant that everything work out [satisfactorily] and easily and that you reach your destination successfully. “The steps of man are established by G‑d.” 2

As you requested, I will remember you and your household when visiting the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ. Certainly, the tzaddik who is found in this world more prominently than during his lifetime 3 will bless you, and G‑d will fulfill his blessings in both material and spiritual matters, in a complete sense.

Surely you are involved in spreading the wellsprings of Chassidus outward in an appropriate manner. I would appreciate if you would inform me of good news in that regard.

With blessings for a kesivah vachasimah tovah and with greetings to the entire fellowship,

Menachem Schneerson

The kuntreisim that you sent were just received: the maamar entitled Kinyan Chayim, the maamar entitled Zos Toras HaBayis, and “The Moral Legacy of Chassidus Chabad.4 Certainly you will send the remainder as well. I express my thanks from the outset.
