Letter of Blessing and Guidance from the Lubavitcher Rebbe – 1954 – Matchmaking Proposal with an Older Girl – "May G-d Guide Him on the Good and Straight Path Both in Material and Spiritual Matters"
Letter from Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneersohn – the Lubavitcher Rebbe, with his signature. Brooklyn NY, 29th Kislev 1954.
Typewritten on the official stationery of the rebbe, with his signature.
Written in response to a request to hear the rebbe's opinion "as he was proposed a match with a 35-year-old girl". The rebbe replies and instructs: "One must inquire why the girl is not yet married, since this is unusual, and according to the information he receives – he will make a decision". The rebbe concludes: "May G-d guide him on the good and straight path, both in material and spiritual matters".
