Greetings and blessings,

I received your letter from Sunday of Parshas Behaalos’cha…. It is surprising that, in your entire letter, you do not mention anything about the [spiritual] channels [through which flow] the sustenance of every chassid, and particularly, of [those who have studied in Yeshivas Tomchei] Temimim, i.e., the fixed times for the study of the teachings of Chassidus. (If possible, [such study] should be [carried out] through “close association with friends,”1 or, at the very least, [by everyone] individually.) It is self-understood that this is in addition to the observance of the three universally appropriate study sessions; i.e., the daily portion of Tehillim, of Chumash together with Rashi’s commentary, and of Tanya as ordained by my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe זצוקללה"ה, נבג"ם, זי"ע,2 for all those who are bound to him and share a connection with him.

With blessings for success in earning your livelihood and that you share good news about your positive circumstances in both material and spiritual matters,
