The text of this letter was sent to various individuals, personally addressed to each one.1

B”H, 18 Kislev, 5711

Greetings and blessings,

Your pan was received and, without committing myself by vow, I will read it at the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, on the coming day of Yud-Tes Kislev.

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

With blessings for the holiday of our redemption and the deliverance of our souls, and with greetings to the entire brotherhood,

M. Schneerson

Enclosed is the digest [of the farbrengen] of Shabbos Parshas Lech Lecha. There you will find an answer regarding our custom on the first night of Rosh HaShanah.3

With regard to what you wrote concerning the 600,000 letters in the Torah:4 See the text Mishnas Avraham (Zitomar, 5628), p. 10ff., which collects all the [suggested] resolutions to this matter.

With regard to what you wrote, that first one must refine oneself (and the world must wait, temporarily?):5 See the Introduction to Kuntreis U’Maayon, p. 22.6

..Similarly,7 I will convey [the news] regarding your good tidings that the texts were redeemed8 and are being sent here....

With regard to moving: In my opinion, you should immediately ask the opinion of your relatives in Eretz Yisrael at present, notify me, and then you should decide about the matter.

With regard to your complaints about your spiritual situation: You should reinforce yourself with kabbalas ol regarding [the study of] Nigleh and Chassidus, and endeavor to spread the wellsprings outward. In that way, you will also be redeemed, because, according to law, you should be given a portion first. See the Introduction to Kuntreis U’Maayon, p. 22.

You will certainly inform [me] with a detailed account of your present expenses [incurred] in redeeming the texts of Kehot.
