B”H, 19 Sivan, 5710

Blessings and greetings,

Through Rabbi Yaakov Hecht, I was notified about your operation. As per his request, I read a pan for your speedy recovery in the room of my revered father-in-law, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, הכ"מ.

Certainly, you are following the directives of the doctor. The [ultimate] Healer is G‑d. Nevertheless, the Torah relates that He desires that this be accomplished partially through an intermediary: the doctor and the mediums he prescribes. We must also remember that the primary medicine are the mitzvos and the good deeds that G‑d told each one of us to perform. They endow us with health and strength.

With blessings for a speedy recovery, and with greetings for your son, Mr. .... May you receive a full measure of nachas, Yiddishe nachas, from him and from his family,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
