6 Tammuz, 5711,
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greetings and blessings,

Enclosed is the kuntreis for the Festival of Redemption, the 12th of Tammuz. You will certainly share it — both its light and the luminary within it — with people at large.

Just as “the soul” of the master of rejoicing was “redeemed in peace”2 because “the many were with me,”3 i.e., for the sake of the many, because he benefited the many,4 so too, may we merit to receive and internalize this redemption within our inner being through twofold goodness — “good for Heaven” and “good for the created beings.”5

For through the dissemination of the Torah in general6 and the dissemination of the teachings of Chassidus in particular, darkness is transformed into light. Just as the soul of David was “redeemed in peace,” because “the many” — even the supporters of Avshalom7 — “were with him,” so too, every individual can be redeemed in peace, because “the many” — the angels who protect a person, [i.e.,] the yetzer hatov and the yetzer hara8 — will be “with him.” For through [the efforts] described above, one empowers the yetzer hatov over the yetzer hara and, [in that way,] sweetens the powers of might. Then, the yetzer hara is transformed and becomes “protection for the fruit.”9

Then [despite] the many — “the many troubles10G‑d’s word will be with us, granting us assistance.

With blessings of the Festival of Liberation — from one who awaits good tidings from your farbrengens on these days of liberation [to be used for] strengthening comradely love, the dissemination of the Torah, and the reinforcement of Yiddish­keit.

M. Schneerson
