B”H, 16 Elul, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

I received both of your letters, from Wednesday of [Parshas] Re’eh and Sunday of [Parshas] Seitzei. As per your request, I will read your pidyonosat the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ. Certainly, he will draw down his blessing and [bring] success for you and for your family whom you mentioned in the letter.

With regard to the question you ask regarding moving: 1 You refer to the letter from my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, about your journey. I don’t understand why you are asking again. And what can I add more than what was stated in the previous letter that I wrote concerning this. Nevertheless, may whatever you decide lead to success in material and spiritual matters.

I will read the pan for the teacher of Beis Sarah at the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, and he will certainly give his blessing for what she needs in material and spiritual matters.

Regarding your learning the profession of ... which you had interrupted and you ask whether it is worthwhile for you to continue studying in the month of Elul. Behold, the concept of “And you shall gather your grain, your wine, and your oil,” 2 is also a Torah precept which is mentioned in one of the passages of Kerias Shema. This must, however, be carried out according to the directives of the Torah with the fear of Heaven. Therefore it appears to me that you should successfully continue your studies and gain proficiency in that profession. May G‑d grant His blessing that you find your livelihood wherever you will be in a kosher manner and with composure and abundance. With blessings for a kesivah vachasimah tovah and awaiting good news from you and from all those whom you mention in your letter,

It is not valuable to use the book Sefer HaChassidus by Avraham Kahana. This is particularly [true] at present when there are so many books printed about Chassidus and the teachings of Chassidus that were written by Rebbeim and chassidim.
