Mr. Aron Dov Sufrin

Greeting and Blessing:

After the very long interval, I received your letter of the 27th of Tammuz. Needless to say, you need not apologize for writing in English, for the important thing is not the language but contents of the letter.

I was especially gratified to read about the progress of the Lubavitcher House, and especially about the increase in the number of students and campers in Camp Gan Israel. I have often emphasized that the summer in general, and camp activities in particular, offer extraordinary opportunities to benefit the children, whose attention is not distracted by secular studies during the summer.

I hope you will make efforts in this direction, and thus also create and widen the channels to receive G‑d's blessing for Parnosso. I further hope that you will carry on your activities in a spirit of complete faith in the Almighty, and with confidence and joy, as taught by the saintly Baal Shem Tov, whose 200th anniversary of the completion of his life's work coincides with the current year.

Hoping to hear good news from you,

With blessing,

By /signed by Nissan Mindel/
