  Blessings for the Pesach holiday; the concept that the heavenly spheres are masters of knowledgeTable of contentsThe significance of the month of Iyar  

No. 478

This letter was addressed to R. Shlomo Chayim Kesselman, one of the spiritual mentors of the Lubavitch community in Paris.
B"H, 3 Iyar, 5709

Greetings and blessings,

Surprisingly, we have not received from you, as of yet, any acknowledgment of your receipt of the letters and the kuntreisim....

Enclosed is a copy of the list [sent by] the Committee for the Sefer Torah[328] with the list of the corresponding letters [purchased in the Sefer Torah]. You will no doubt inform us in detail concerning the new parameters for nifneh[329] after some of those involved with it will have emigrated to Eretz Yisrael.[330]

To conclude with matters relevant to the present day: [During the farbrengen delivered after] Kiddush [this Shabbos], which was Rosh Chodesh [Iyar, it was] explained that the month of Iyar possesses an advantage over all the months of the year in that each and every one of its days causes a mitzvah (i.e., the mitzvah of Counting the Omer) [to be performed on it].

Concluding with wishes for everlasting good in all matters and with greetings to all those who seek our welfare,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson

  3. (Back to text) [Many of the members of the chassidic brotherhood from Russia who had been temporarily living in France emigrated to Eretz Yisrael at this time. See the Previous Rebbe’s Igros Kodesh, Vol. X, Letter No. 3479 and notes there.]
