Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greetings and blessings,

Your letter from the Friday that preceded Shabbos Parshas Chukas (sent from Switzerland) reached me. In the interim, I also received your letter from 15 Sivan, sent from Jerusalem. Thank you for your detailed description of the situation regarding the United Religious Front in our Holy Land and your efforts to revive it.

As I told you during our conversation, I wrote a letter to [the people of] Eretz Yisrael regarding my opinion concerning participation in the elections: [stating] that everyone, man and woman, is obligated to participate in the elections, to vote for the most G‑d-fearing party, and to influence others to do so as well.1 As you requested, I also notified Agudas Chabad concerning this via telegram. Certainly, they have already publicized this in an appropriate manner.

As you requested in your letter, when I visit the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe זצוקללה"ה, נבג"ם, זי"ע, I will mention your name, [requesting] blessing and success. May G‑d strengthen your health and may you add strength in your “battle on behalf of the Torah.”2 May you see blessing and success in both your personal and public affairs.

Knowing your regard and feelings for my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe, and his holy teachings, on the occasion of the Festival of Redemption, [commemorating] the liberation and the deliverance of his soul from the hands of Soviet [oppression] in 5687 (1927), I am happily sending you Kuntreis Yud-Beis/Yud-Gimmel Tammuz which was now published.
