This letter was sent individually to R. Shlomo Yosef Zevin, one of the leading Rabbinic authorities in Eretz Yisrael, and to R. Eliezer Karasik, and R. Moshe Guararie, two of the leading members of the Lubavitch community in Eretz Yisrael.

Greetings and blessings,

Regarding the information I received from different sources concerning the situation with the United Religious Front: I sent telegrams and letters as enclosed — there is no need to explain the content — in addition to the telegram sent to you.

In my opinion, it would be worthwhile for you and your two friends to speak about visiting all the individuals to whom I sent telegrams and letters and to emphasize that dissolving the unity of religious Jewry in our Holy Land will — in addition to the tremendous damage it will cause to the yishuv1 [in Eretz Yisrael] — also cause a dissolution of unity here in the US and a great financial loss. It is difficult to evaluate the extent of the catastrophe that will arise from such an action.

If, according to your understanding, it is necessary to include another person together with you, I rely on your understanding.2 As is understood, in all of the above I am merely making a suggestion, since for you, the circumstances on site will be clearer.

I am hoping that you reach a straightforward decision concerning the above and that G‑d grant each of us success in doing what is incumbent on ourselves to strengthen the Torah and Yiddishkeit in each and every place.

You will surely inform me of your receipt of this letter and what was done concerning [this issue]. With thanks in advance.

With greetings and with blessings,

The3 book of manuscripts of Chassidus that contained the maamarim regarding praying [at the graves of the righteous]4 was now received. With repeated thanks,
