No. 123

This letter was prepared with the intent that it be translated into English and sent - together with the book it mentions - to Jewish soldiers serving in the American army.
[The days of Chanukah, 5704]

We are sending you our Pocket Encyclopedia.[1] We are certain that the more you look into it - even if you read it frequently - you will be very satisfied with it.

The encyclopedia was printed in a pocket-size edition so that it will be easy to carry and thus will be available whenever it is desired. We have also included in it a place to record notes and important tidbits of information, because we were confident that the encyclopedia would accompany you and that you would find it a good companion, not only at home, but also as you travel.

We would appreciate if you would notify us of your receipt of the text and the impression it made upon you. Also, if you have comments concerning the text, [please send them to us and] we will give them the proper attention [when preparing] next year's edition.

I would like to use this opportunity to encourage you again - although it is our hope that [at all times even without our prompting,] this idea is always in your thoughts - [to appreciate how] wherever you go, G-d, the L-rd of Hosts, is together with you, watches over you at all times, and considers all of your deeds (as explained at length in the message sent by my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe shlita). Therefore, there is no need to fear. You should be of a strong spirit and have trust and confidence in the victory over the hateful enemy.

May you increase the strength of your commitment to your faith and endeavor with all your strength to observe the Torah and its mitzvos to your fullest capacity, for G-d is standing over you.

As it is written (Devarim 23:10-15):

When your camp goes out against your enemy, you should protect yourself against any evil matters, because G-d, your L-rd, goes in the midst of your camp to save you, and to subdue your enemies before you. And [so], your camp should be holy.

With the hope that you will soon return home unharmed after a total victory and with the wish for the complete Redemption for all the Jewish people.

   

Notes:

  1. (Back to text) [The intent appears to be not an encyclopedia in the simple sense, but rather a diary - in a format similar to that of HaYom Yom - which contains information about the various dates of the year and inspiring quotes.]
