Greetings and blessings,

Your letter of 19 Nissan reached me. Thank you very much for the statistical information regarding the educational situation.

With regard to your suggestion concerning a teachers’ seminary: [Please prepare] a detailed proposal regarding the pedagogical lessons whose purpose would be to prepare teachers in a short time (3-6 months). [We are speaking of teachers] who by and large already possess the fundamental knowledge required of them and are lacking merely pedagogical and methodological training for which the minimum necessities could be received in such a short time.

My desire — if possible — is that together with the above proposal, you should include a list of people who could possibly be included as lecturers for these lessons and, in particular, a budget.

After the proposal is received, we will be able to consider the possibility of making it an actuality....

With wishes for receiving the Torah with joy and with inner feeling and for all types of good,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson

Enclosed is the kuntres for the Shavuos holiday.
