Letter of Blessing and Guidance from the Lubavitcher Rebbe – 1959 – Blessings for Abundant Livelihood and for Bearing a Son – "Through Increasing His Efforts on Behalf of the Education of Jewish Children… the More Efforts He Expends, the Quicker and More Plentiful the Blessing He Will Receive from G-d"
Letter from Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneersohn – the Lubavitcher Rebbe, with his signature. Brooklyn NY, 1st Adar II 1959.
Typewritten on the official stationery of the rebbe, with his signature and the addition of one word in his handwriting.
Addressed to R. Refael Assulin of Midelt, Morocco. The rebbe begins the letter by relating to success in livelihood, and instructs him: "The advice of the sages in this matter is well-known, to give plenty charity, and to distribute the sum in several goes, and one of the propitious times for this is every day before the morning prayers, to set aside several coins for charity".
Further in the letter, the rebbe responds to his request "to be blessed with a son", and writes: "Obviously the channel and utensil for receiving G-d's blessing in this area is by increasing efforts on behalf of the education of the Jewish children under his care… and the more efforts he expends, the quicker and more plentiful the blessing he will receive from G-d".
The present letter was not published in Igrot Kodesh of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
