This letter was sent to R. Menachem Zev Greenglass, one of the leaders of the Lubavitcher community in Montreal.

B”H, Thursday, 1 Nissan, 5705

Greetings and blessings,

In response to your letter:

a) [The details of] the Seder for this coming Pesach are of course dependent on the health of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe Shlita. Thus no clear statements can be made about this beforehand.

b) The corners of the tallis katan should also be sewn with silk on the underside. This is the custom in the Rebbeim’s household.

c) I will deliver your pan as you requested.

d) The price of Haggados is 30 American cents (for yeshivos). You receive your usual discount. [Your order] was sent yesterday.

e) With regard to the sichos: As I told you, my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe Shlita, prepares them for publication with many additions. Hence, there is delay concerning the matter.

To conclude with words of Torah: With regard to your second question, my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe Shlita, related that the Rebbe Rashab would sew a piece of silk from the remnants of the Alter Rebbe’s, Tzemach Tzedek’s, etc. clothing in between the silk [border] and the weave of the tallis itself. Generally, it would be placed on the front right corner, near the holes.

With the blessing “Immediately to teshuvah; immediately to Redemption,” with regards to all those concerned with our welfare,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
Executive Director
