Lengthy letter from the Admor Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson of Lubavitch, with his signature, and a correction in his hand. 1971.

In the letter, the Admor writes about the 19th of Kislev, the day of redemption of the Alter Rebbe in 1799, and he notes that it was Tuesday, when "and it was good" was mentioned twice. He quotes from the words of the Alter Rebbe, who brings in the name of the Ariza"l that there are two kinds of souls in Israel, the souls of scholars who are occupied with Torah all the days of their lives, and the souls of mitzvah-observers who are occupied with charity and lovingkindness. The Admor also describes proper conduct on that specific day and adds sources and comments following the body of the letter.

The Admor Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson [1902-1994], the seventh Admor of the Lubavitch dynasty, served as Admor from Shevat 1951 until his passing. He was a tremendous genius in all secrets of the Torah, and his net was cast across the entire world.

[2] leaves official paper. 21x28 cm. Typewritten, with the Admor's signature. Fine-very fine condition.
