B"H, Monday, 27 Shvat, 5704
Greetings and blessings,

I would like to express my appreciation for your visit to Merkos L'Inyonei Chinuch. I was very happy to learn about and discuss the problems presently confronting Jewish education in America.

I am certain that your discussion and your meeting with my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe shlita, will spur you to concrete activities on behalf of Jewish education.

In the Midrash concerning this week's Torah reading, it is written:[1] "The world was not fit to use gold? Why was it created? For the sake of the Sanctuary and for the sake of the Beis HaMikdash."

Each person can derive an ethical lesson from this. The talent which G-d endowed every individual was created for the Sanctuary and Beis HaMikdash which that person has within his heart. And in the merit of [those efforts], he may also use it for worldly [purposes].

With the hope that we stay in contact concerning matters involving actual work;

yours truly, with the blessing, "Immediately to teshuvah, immediately to Redemption,"

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
Chairman of the Executive Committee
