B”H, during Tishrei, 5711,
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greetings and blessings,

Your pan was received. I read it on the day preceding the holy day1 at the gravesite and, afterwards, in the private chamber of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, the place where [chassidim] enter to give [their] pannim and for yechidus.

The “tzaddik who has departed and who is to be found in all the worlds more prominently than during his lifetime”2 will certainly give his blessing and G‑d will fulfill his blessings in material and spiritual matters.

Certainly you will increase the strength of your diligent study and also keep the fixed study sessions that universally apply in Chumash, Tehillim, and Tanya, as established by my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, as stated in the study schedule.

May it be G‑d’s will that you grow to be G‑d-fearing, a chassid, and a Torah scholar, [so that] the Nasi of the institution in which you study, i.e., my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, will, with satisfaction, be able to say about you: “See the offspring that I have raised.”3

With blessings for success in your studies with the fear of Heaven,

M. Schneerson
