Greetings and blessings,

I duly received your second letter in which you ask for a blessing for yourself and for your wife.

When I was at the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe זצוקללה"ה, נבג"ם, זי"ע,1 I recalled you for the good. Certainly, my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, will arouse abundant mercies for you for a speedy recovery, and that you both will derive nachas — Yiddishe nachas — from your children.

It would be desirable that you establish the custom of reciting Tehillim — at least a few kapitlach —in shul during the weekdays as well. Convey to the congregants the words that my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, related: that reciting Tehillim protects [a person] from many undesirable matters and draws down abundant good for the needs of every single individual.

Enclosed is the sichah from Lag BaOmer2 delivered by my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, which has recently been printed. I hope that you will find the appropriate time to read it — at least in installments — to the congregants. This will certainly bring benefit to all of you.

With blessing,
