No. 483

This letter was addressed to R. David Bravman, a chassid who was charged with overseeing the publication of texts of Chassidus in Germany after WWII.
B"H, 13 Iyar, 5709

Greetings and blessings,

Your letter of 29 Nissan was received. Enclosed is the [latest issue of] Likkutei Dibburim for the coming Lag BaOmer [holiday]. Surely you will share it with people at large in the appropriate manner, as explained in sec. 2 of that sichah and in several sources.

This concept[346] can be associated with Lag BaOmer in particular, based on our Sages’ statement (Yevamos 62b) [that the reason Rabbi Akiva’s students died] is that they did not show honor to one another during the days of the Counting of the Omer. This was not the case on Lag BaOmer when they ceased [dying].

With wishes for everlasting good in all matters and with blessings for the “small Pesach,” i.e., at least a small leap[347] at the present time. Awaiting your letters,

M. Schneerson

Please answer my letter of 10 Iyar[348] immediately.

   

Notes:

  1. (Back to text) [I.e., sharing Torah with others with feelings of unity.]

  2. (Back to text) [The fourteenth of Iyar is Pesach Sheni, referred to as “the small Pesach.” It was instituted to allow those who had not brought a Pesach offering at the appropriate time in Nissan to bring one a month later, in the month of Iyar.

    The spiritual service associated with Pesach is alluded to in its name which also means “leap,” i.e., one makes a radical leap forward in his Divine service. The “small Pesach” thus refers to a smaller leap, but nevertheless a leap.]

  3. (Back to text) [Letter No. 480.]
