This letter is addressed to a philanthropist whose name was not mentioned at the time the letter was published.
B"H, Thursday, 11 Menachem Av, 5703
Greetings and blessings,

We are surprised that we have not heard from you recently. We would be happy if you would write telling us about the events affecting your personal life and the progressive spread of Yiddishkeit in your city, as we spoke when you visited here.

We have sent out your membership card for the Society for the Study of Mishnayos by Heart. Certainly, you have received it by now.

We are surprised that you have not ordered the compendiums HaYom Yom and Chanoch LaNaar that have recently been published and have been received with great pleasure in Chassidic circles. We assume that the reason you have not ordered them is that you were not informed about their publication. Therefore we are sending five copies of both compendiums for you and for your friends. If you feel that this is too large a quantity, you may send the extra copies back on our account.

In this month which is characterized by destruction - may it speedily in our days be transformed into happiness and joy - we must all remember the reason for the destruction of the land (in the time of the First Beis HaMikdash): because the people despised the Torah (Bava Metzia 85b) and in the time of the Second Beis HaMikdash, because of unwarranted hatred (Yoma 9b).

This recollection should evoke a firm desire to do everything possible in expressing unrestrained love, without any ulterior motive. (See HaYom Yom, entry 15 Kislev, which quotes the statements of the Alter Rebbe - the author of the Tanya and the Shulchan Aruch - concerning this issue.[1]) In particular, this applies with regard to [activities which] strengthen the adoration of the Torah, showing that it is G-d's wisdom, and inspiring people to the fear of heaven.

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

Chairman of the Executive Committee

   

Notes:

  1. (Back to text) [That passage states: "We must have mesirus nefesh for ahavas Yisrael, [extending ourselves with love] even for a Jew whom we have never seen."]
