By the Grace of G‑d

21 Cheshvan, 5737

Greetings and Blessings!

I have received your letter, and I will mention you in a Prayer that G‑d, blessed be He, Who watches over everyone and Who sustains and provides for the entire world with his Goodness and Kindness, will find your livelihood and will improve your situation with everything that you and your family need.

It is certainly unnecessary to explain at length that daily behavior according to G‑d's will is the way to receive G‑d's blessing, and it is understood that it is not proper to give conditions to G‑d.

However, it is important to emphasize that every single Jew was given the strength to live according to G‑d's will. It is also self-understood, that just as a human does not demand from his handiwork (for example, a machine or the like, that he built) more than the ability he has given it, how much more so does this apply to the Creator, blessed be He, to no comparison.

As the teaching of our Sages say, may their memory be blessed, that "G‑d only demands according to the strength of the person."

Unlike a human who, when delegating a job to someone or something, can err in his calculation, it is not possible for G‑d to err, G‑d forbid, and to demand the impossible.

It is only that something can be easy for one person to achieve, while the other person has to overcome difficulties and challenges in order to achieve that same thing, but it's clear that everyone receives the strength to fulfil G‑d's Mitzvot in their totality.

Even more so, when one person is given extra difficulties and challenges, it is a sign that he was given more strength, and with patience and a firm resolve to withstand the challenges, and with faith in G‑d, blessed be He, he will see that the obstacles were not as great as he had imagined, and that, "G‑d's salvation can come in the blink of an eye."

May it be G‑d's will that you will very soon be able to report good news regarding everything mentioned.

With blessing,
