B”H, 24 Elul, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

In response to your letter of 22 Elul in which you inform me of the birth of your daughter, may it have been in an auspicious hour.

I am expressing my blessings of mazel tov, mazel tov. May you and your wife raise her [and bring her] to Torah study, marriage, and good deeds.

I will read the enclosed pan at the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, at an auspicious time.

It is surprising that you do not mention that you participate in the division [of the study] of the Talmud. As is well known, each person should study at least one tractate of the Talmud a year ([see Likkutei Dibburim,] the conclusion of Likkut 28). 1

Certainly you will continue writing your memoirs, even though [a portion] was not included in this letter.

With blessings for a kesivah vachasimah tovah, for you and all the members of your household,

Menachem Schneerson

Enclosed is the kuntreis for the coming Rosh HaShanah and communal letters [for the High Holidays]. It would be fitting to publicize them in the most appropriate manner.
