This letter was written to a Rav whose identity remains unknown.
B"H, 12 Teves, 5703, [1]
Greetings and blessings,

In response to your letter from the seventh day [of Chanukah]:

Certainly you will be able to find four positive activities [to perform][2] ... and this will require only minor effort.

Despondency is certainly unnecessary. On several occasions, I heard from my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe shlita,[3] that just as a person must not err with regard to his own shortcomings, so too, he must know his own positive qualities.

Experience shows that often minimizing one's own self-worth is one of the tricks of the evil inclination to weaken [one's resolve] or cause a disturbance [and prevent one] from carrying out a positive activity, as each person certainly knows.

Certainly you are aware that I wrote to Mr. ... concerning the publication of the maamarim and sichos [delivered by my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe,] in Chicago last year. Their publication is being delayed because of the costs of printing. As of yet, no answer has been forthcoming.

Do you know anything about this? Do you have any influence? I have also written to our mutual friend, Rabbi Moshe Leib Rodstein about this.

With the blessing "Immediately to teshuvah, immediately to Redemption,"

Chairman of the Executive Committee

P.S. Note also the contents of the first maamar entitled Mashcheini 5701, sec. 3. One should, however, employ this approach only for a limited period of time only.

   

Notes:

  1. (Back to text) [In this and many other letters from this year, the Rebbe writes the Hebrew year in this manner as a positive omen, for this word means "rise high."]

  2. (Back to text) As asked of every member of Machne Israel, see Letter No. 32.

  3. (Back to text) [See Sefer HaSichos 5687, p. 114.]
