Greetings and blessings,

In reply to your letter of Monday of Parshas Shelach in which you write that the Canadian consul is prepared to give you visas for there: I have already written to several of the members of the chassidic brotherhood that according to the information that is received from Canada — and you certainly also have such information — it is difficult to establish one’s means of earning a livelihood there, as is also true here in the US. The opposite is true with regard to the countries in South America and Australia. Therefore, I am amazed why [you] do not think of immigrating to these places even though it is not that easy to receive visas to them. Regardless of the place to which you move, may G‑d grant that your journey there be successful and that you establish yourself there in a befitting manner, both materially and spiritually.

With regard to your question concerning the marriage partner that was suggested for your daughter … : Your question concerns the fact that the name of the man suggested is Avraham and your own name is … Avraham,1 but you use the only name Avraham when you are called to the Torah and when you sign. [In response,] since everything else appears appropriate, this should not be considered as an obstacle. {See the responsa of the Tzemach Tzedek (Even HaEzer, responsum 143) which states that in such a situation,2 it is not considered at all as if the names are the same and there is no need for any concern. (See also the Piskei Dinim of the Tzemach Tzedek to Yoreh Deah, Vol. 1, sec. 116.)}

With blessings and greetings to all the members of your household,
