In this week’s edition of Letter & Spirit, in honor of Chof Beis Shvat and the Kinus Hashluchos, we present a letter from the Rebbe in which he gives an explanation for ‘why Chassidim participate in the outside world’ – by way of saluting the Shluchos who devote their lives to working with the world to improve it. 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.
