70 Years, 71 New Institutions

I have been asked: “Now that you’ve reached 70 years isn’t it time to slow down and enjoy some rest? The number of one’s years is irrelevant; the real question is: were those years utilized to the fullest? Every honest person knows he could have accomplished more in his youth, so now is the time to work with greater strength to double one’s achievements.

70 Years, 71 New Institutions
Disc 21, Program 82

Event Date: 11 Nissan 5732 - March 26, 1972

I have been asked: “Now that you’ve reached 70 years isn’t it time to slow down and enjoy some rest?

The number of one’s years is irrelevant; the real question is: were those years utilized to the fullest? Every honest person knows he could have accomplished more in his youth, so now is the time to work with greater strength to double one’s achievements.

Since we are moving out of the seventh decade and towards the eighth, over the course of this year, at least 71 new institutions should be established. I will partner with every individual who dedicates himself to this project, and at least 10% of the expenses involved in founding these new institutions will come from the “Seventy Fund.”
