Greetings and blessings,

..As is well known, it is written:1 “If you follow My statutes and observe My commandments and carry them out, I will grant your rains in their season.” [From the fact that the verse states] “observe My commandments,” Rashi [interprets the charge to “follow My statutes” as a command to] “labor in Torah study.” My revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, explained that the fundamental point is to labor in Torah study; i.e., [for a person] to sacrifice his time and strive with his mind to labor in G‑d’s Torah. Even if, according to Torah Law, it is not within his capacity to study for most of the day, due to his personal matters, [e.g.,] a pressing financial situation, when G‑d will see him laboring in Torah study, He will give him His blessing: “I will grant your rains in their season.” As time proceeds, his financial situation will improve and, as a result, as time proceeds, he will have a greater opportunity to increase his study of the Torah and his observance of the mitzvos. Thus he will proceed from strength to strength in both material and spiritual matters.

Certainly, you are also generous [in your relations] with others and you make the effort to have them join the holy studies. I would be happy to be informed by you of your improvement in your situation in general, your achievements in your studies, and the increase in the number of students who participate in the classes.

With blessings for success in your Torah studies, observance of the mitzvos, and a good understanding of the teachings of Chassidus.

From one who blesses you,
