Letter & Spirit: The Nature of Egypt

In this week’s edition of Letter and Spirit, as we read in this week’s Parsha about the enslavement of the Jews in Egypt,  we present a letter of the Rebbe in which he explains the state and nature of the land of Egypt – in the time of Yaakov and Yosef and today. The letter was written in English through the Rebbe’s trusted secretary Rabbi Nissan Mindel, and was made available by the latter’s son-in-law, Rabbi Sholom Ber Shapiro.
