Greetings and blessings,

I was pleased to receive your telegram [stating] that your daughter began attending the yeshivah. I hope that you and your wife will receive much Jewish satisfaction from her in material and spiritual matters.

You have surely heard the analogy that a child is like a young tree. Just as [the effect of] a small change in a sapling increases vastly over the course of time, so every improvement in a child’s education leads to tremendous change later. For this reason, you and your wife will certainly desire to improve the education of your daughter so that she grows up as a fine Jewish woman, from whom you will derive much Jewish satisfaction.

With blessings for all forms of everlasting good,

Menachem Schneerson
