Letter & Spirit: A Modern-Day Queen Esther

In this week’s edition of Letter & Spirit, in honor of Purim, we present a letter from the Rebbe in which he gives encouraging words to a woman who is making efforts to advance in Torah and mitzvos - connecting her efforts to those of Queen Esther in saving her people. The letter was written through the Rebbe’s trusted secretary Rabbi Nissan Mindel, and was made available by the latter’s son-in-law, Rabbi Sholom Ber Shapiro.
