By the Grace of G‑d
In the days between the 10th of Shevat,
Yahrtzeit of my saintly father-in-law the Rebbe,
and 15th of Shevat, New Year For Trees, 5747.
Brooklyn, N.Y.

To All Jewish Children, Everywhere,
G‑d bless you all!

Greeting and Blessing:

In addition to the general letter - there follows here, in greater detail, the suggestions and urgent request to each of you, boy or girl, to make your room, your cot (or bed), your small table, and so on, into a "home" for Torah, prayer and good deeds. This means: to use them every day for learning Torah, saying a prayer to HaShem, and giving Tzedoko in a Tzedoko box (skip the Tzedoko part on Shabbos and Yom Tov, when money must not be handled), and the like.

And everyone of you should have your own Siddur (for prayer), your own chumash (or other Torah sefer), and your own Tzedoko box.

[And you should write (on the inside cover) of your Siddur, or sefer, the words לה' הארץ ומלואה (or in the short form, the first letters "לה"ו" - meaning, "the earth and all it contains belong to HaShem"), and then write your name under it, as is the Jewish custom. If possible, write the same on your Tzedoko box].

* * *

May HaShem bless each of you with Hatzlocho (success) to grow and advance in Torah, prayer and good deeds, in keeping with the message of the New Year For Trees, so as to produce an abundance of "fruits" (good deeds) all year long, - in fulfilment of the many blessings which my saintly father-in-law, the Rebbe, wishes you;

And you should do it all in good health and happiness.

Wishing you Hatzlocho in all above,

/Signed: M. Schneerson/
