No. 61

The name of the person to whom the letter was sent was kept confidential.
Friday, 5 Adar II, 5703

Our dear and special friend, Rabbi Moshe Yitzchak Hecht, appraised us of the news of your decision to put on tefillin on every weekday.

From the depths of my heart, and with feelings of ahavas Yisrael, I recognize and appreciate the important resolve you have taken upon yourself.

A head on which tefillin have been placed thinks like a Jew, and a heart next to which tefillin have been placed feels like a Jewish heart should feel. And a hand upon which the tefillin [straps] have been wound is far from undesirable acts. On the contrary, it will always perform good deeds.

The Torah and its mitzvos are "our lives."[1] Thus your putting on tefillin is auspicious for you and for your family. It is of benefit to our entire people and protects the land in which we are found.

"One mitzvah leads to another."[2] We extend our wishes that you proceed further and further spiritually and that in a material sense, you enjoy good health and good fortune.

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

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
Chairman of the Executive Committee
