B”H, 23 Menachem Av, 5710

Greetings and blessings,

In reply to your letter of the Friday preceding Shabbos VaEschanan:I was happy to receive notice that your wife’s health has improved. Surely you are fulfilling the directives of the knowledgeable doctors who examined her. Certainly her situation will continue to improve and you will share good news about this.

It is amazing that you do not mention anything about the fixed times for study that you have established in the teachings of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ, about which I encouraged you in my previous letter. Behold, this is the appropriate medium through which a chassid bonds with his Rebbe, my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, הכ"מ. This parallels the explanation given in Chassidus concerning the positive quality of the limbs: that they are not merely vessels that receive [the body’s life-energy], but they draw it down. [Similarly, the study of the Rebbe’s teachings] draws down his blessings in what is needed in material and spiritual matters.

With blessings for success in your work in holiness, awaiting good news from you,

Menachem Schneerson
