B”H, 6 Menachem Av, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

In response to your letter of 25 Tammuz:

I don’t see the basis for your panic to leave your [present] community. Since, at the time, my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, wrote you, as you quoted in your letter: “For the time being, you should remain in your place and continue your holy work with the students,” you should be in a place where the students are. Certainly, the blessing that my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, gave you — that G‑d will strengthen your health and that of your wife and that you be successful materially and spiritually — will be fulfilled.

When we can act relying on the Rebbe’s trustworthiness and with his power, why should one mix in “the deeds of man and his designs”?1

May G‑d transform these days into gladness and happiness in our time and redeem us with the complete Redemption, by Mashiach, speedily in our days.

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
