This week, we present a letter from the Rebbe in which he explains Perek 27 of Tehilim – L’Dovid Hashem Ori, which we say every day during Elul until Hoshana Rabba, wherein we reflect on Hashem’s careful watchfulness – Hashgacha Protis – and are strengthened by this. The letter, written originally in English, is from the archives of the Rebbe’s personal trusted secretary, Rabbi Nissan Mindel.
