3. May the Al-mighty grant blessings and success to each and everyone of the grooms and brides, and all of you together, in all that is necessary. Particularly, that the preparations to the wedding be proper, in the spirit of Judaism and Chassidus, and with success. May the wedding itself be in a good and successful time an everlasting edifice [built] upon the foundations of Torah and mitzvos.

As preparation to this, before the wedding the grooms and brides will surely increase in the dissemination of Judaism, Torah and mitzvos, and all worthy matters, with joy and a good heart. This is the appropriate preparation for their home to be an everlasting edifice, a meeting place for Sages, a home in which sons and daughters occupied~ n Torah and mitzvos will be raised; a home in which sages, knowing that it is a Jewish and Chassidic home, will gather in the wisdom of Torah. The greater the increase in those preparations appropriate to the blessings in which the grooms and brides desire to be blessed in our case, an increase in the dissemination of Torah and Judaism appropriate to the blessing for an everlasting edifice and a home which is a meeting place for sages the greater the increase in the blessings merited.

Our Sages have said (Kiddushin 40a), G-d joins a good thought to deed. Chassidus explains (Tanya, ch. 16; Sefer HaMaamarim 5702, p. 87) that this means that G-d arranges circumstances to ensure that the good thought which a Jew had [but which could not be carried out right away] be actually implemented in deed and then the thought and deed are joined together to make a complete entity.

The mitzvah of tzedakah is the cup of deliverance, for through it we merit G-ds tzedakah for all ones needs in full measure, from His full, open, holy and ample hand. Most particularly, when one is about to erect an everlasting edifice which needs blessings in the broadest and deepest measure it is proper that the groom and bride, on the morning of their wedding, give tzedakah from their own money. It is as well that their parents and all those who wish them well do likewise.

Together with giving tzedakah they should also resolve to increase in all aspects of Judaism, especially in the area of love and unity between Jews. The mitzvah of tzedakah itself is an act which expresses love of and unity between Jews, for tzedakah can be given to all people, even to a wealthy person by helping him with good advice, and by influencing him to increase in matters of Judaism, with joy and a good heart.

All this will elicit extra blessings of success for yourselves and your families in all ones needs, especially in those things associated with the wedding: the preparations to the wedding, the wedding itself, (may it be in a good and successful hour), and the seven days of rejoicing for good and long days and years, with sons and daughters occupied in Torah and its mitzvos, raised to Torah, to marriage and to good deeds.

As participation in a joyful matter, particularly in the joy of a groom and bride which transcends all bounds especially since this joy hastens the fulfillment of the promise, There shall yet be heard ... in the cities of Yehudah and in the streets of Yerushalayim the sound of joy and the sound of happiness, with the coming of our righteous Mashiach I shall give each of you a dollar to be combined with the tzedakah you will give of your own money.

Our Sages have said (B. Basra 10a), Great is Tzedakah for it hastens the redemption. This applies to even one act of tzedakah, and certainly when a number of Jews give tzedakah, and most certainly so when a groom and bride give tzedakah, for Torah equates a groom and bride to a king and queen, who rule the whole country. Thus, all these tzedakahs will surely hasten the true and complete redemption, may it be speedily in our times.

Then we merit to go from one joy to another: From the joy of a wedding among Jews (starting with the joy connected with the vengeance of the L-rd on Midian, meaning the abolition of all strife and controversy since there will be only love friendship, harmony, and fellowship between Jews) to the joy connected with the coming of our righteous Mashiach, when the marriage between G-d and Jewry will take place with joy and a good heart, may it be speedily in our days.
