Greetings and blessings,

In response to your letter:

With regard to your journey, [my opinion is, as] your brother has undoubtedly already told you, that since you have already undertaken similar [journeys] based on the counsel of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ — it appears to me that, at that time, he directed you that in the places that you visit, you should endeavor to be active in strengthening Yiddishkeit, proper [Jewish] education, and the like — [then] if this journey is undertaken with this purpose, the counsel that my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, gave at that time is still in effect.

You and the members of your household were mentioned at the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ. May the Holy One, blessed be He, fulfill the blessings of a tzaddik that everything be in order, at the appropriate time. Certainly, from time to time, you will send updates regarding your positive circumstances.

With regard to what you wrote — that to your sorrow, a fixed time for study has not yet been established — why should you experience sorrow? Isn’t it better to establish a fixed time for study? Then you would have two advantages: a) the fixed time for study; and b) the lack of sorrow. For a person is not permitted to injure himself. Perhaps, at the very least, everyone should study individually.

With blessings and with greetings for...,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
