B”H, Rosh Chodesh Sivan, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

In response to your letter of 21 Iyar:

The gathering together of the members of the chassidic brotherhood in every city, their uniting in — and discussion of — concrete activities that will strengthen Judaism in general and strengthen the study of Chassidus in particular is a very positive thing. Certainly you are in contact with Agudas Chabad in Tel Aviv. Please notify me in detail about all the above.

With regard to the books [published by] Kehot: You should turn to the representative of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch, our friend, R. Avraham Paris. If he does not have the books that you need or if it is necessary that some be sent to you as a present, please inform me.

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

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
