This letter was sent to Rabbi Betzalel Wilshanski, one of the early members of the chassidic community in Australia.

B”H, 24 Cheshvan, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

I am writing to acknowledge your letters of 2 Cheshvan and the Thursday of Parshas Noach. Today 106 [dollars]and 1 pound sterling were received.1

Under separate cover, a package containing three copies of the index of the Rebbe [Rashab’s] maamarim2was sent to you; one for you and two to sell. [Another copy] was sent to R. Moshe Feiglin individually. Undoubtedly, you will acknowledge their receipt and [describe] everything that is being done to spread [the teachings of Chassidus].

You surely have a study session to learn the Chassidus of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe Shlita, who is the leader of this generation and thus, as a matter of course, all Divine influence flows through him. (Therefore even meat was drawn down through Moshe Rabbeinu.)3 It is explained in several sources that the channel for all Divine influence is the Torah.4 As our Sages say:5 The world was created through the Torah and is maintained through the Torah. See the maamar published for Chai Elul, 5709.6

With greetings to all the members of our fellowship,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
