By the Grace of G‑d,
11 Nissan, 5734 [April 3, 1974]
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greetings and Blessings!

The letters and reports were received, and many thanks.

As we approach Chag Hamatzot, Zman Cheiruteinu (the Festival of Matzos, the Time of our Freedom) which is coming upon us and all of Israel for good, I hereby give my blessings for a kosher and happy Pesach, and for true freedom; freedom from both material worries and spiritual worries - from anything that stands in the way of serving G‑d with joy and gladness of heart.

And to carry forward this freedom and joy, throughout the entire year.

Especially since service of G‑d, as commanded upon us in our Torah, the Torah of Life, pertains to all areas in a person's life, and throughout the entire day and night, as it says, "Know Him in all your ways."

With blessings for the Festival, and for much success in all your endeavors, in good health and happiness.

M. Schneerson
