B”H, 4 Tammuz, 5709

Greetings and blessings,

Enclosed is the kuntreis for the Holiday of Redemption,1 a letter from Machne Israel,2 and a letter from the Committee for Maamad. You will no doubt endeavor to share all three with people at large in the most appropriate manner.

By free association, one might say that [the three enclosures] represent the [renowned] three vectors3 : The kuntreis is identified with Torah; the letter from Machne Israel, with [Divine service,] i.e., elevation and connection; and the letter from the Committee for Maamad, with deeds of kindness with oneself and with all the members of one’s household.

May it be G‑d’s will that [the wishes] mentioned at the conclusion of the enclosed maamar speedily be fulfilled and that through the three vectors mentioned above come “the redemption of our souls.” And immediately thereafter “I will consider it as if he redeemed...,” [i.e.,] the Holy One, blessed be He, will bring us to the encompassing redemption, with the coming of Mashiach.4

With greetings to all those who seek our welfare,

M. Schneerson
