An historic, heartfelt letter in which the Friediker Rebbe expresses his innermost feelings as to the purpose of his flight from Europe and resettlement in the United States: “The propagation and dissemination of Torah and Yirath Shamayim in the spirit of Tomchei Temimim Lubavitch is the mission which Divine Providence has placed upon me - to make America into a place committed to Torah.
