This letter was addressed to R. Shlomo Zalman Hecht, one of the leading Lubavitch Rabbis in Chicago.

B”H, 29 Adar, 5709

Greetings and blessings,

I received your express letter. Yesterday, Mr. Mindel sent the pictures1 together with a short biography. You will no doubt arrange things in the best possible manner and inform me of the positive outcome.

You will no doubt duly inform me also of the outcome of the proposal you made to your brother.

Enclosed is a kuntreis for Beis Nissan and a letter from Machne Israel. Please acknowledge receipt of them.

You have no doubt duly received the public letter sent by Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch to Rabbis to inspire them to perform activities throughout the [upcoming Pesach] holiday and the entire month [of Nissan] to help ease the financial situation of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch. It is certainly unneces­sary to motivate you about this matter again. We await good tidings.

With greetings to the Levitansky brothers and to all those who seek our welfare,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
