By the Grace of G‑d

4 Tammuz, 5714

Brooklyn, NY

Greetings and Blessings!

Your letter was given to me and as you requested, I will mention you and your family, may they live and be well, at the holy resting place of my father-in-law, the previous Rebbe, with a request for blessings for all their needs, as you have written.

It is certainly unnecessary to bring to your attention that, since during the summer many people pass through your hotel - their intention being to look after their health and rest, and so they have a lot of free time that just as you put effort into improving their physical health, it is even more necessary to put effort into improving their spiritual health. This is especially so being that for a Jewish man or woman, physical well-being is dependent on spiritual well-being.

Certainly there are holy books in your hotel, especially ones that pertain to daily life, i.e. books containing the Halachic conclusions and necessary laws, books of Chassidus and Mussar, etc. Surely you remind the guests who stay at your hotel, as much as possible, to pay attention to all this.

May G‑d grant you success.

With blessing,

(Igros Kodesh, Vol. IX, p. 163)
