Letter from the Frierdiker Rebbe - Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn of Lubavitch

Letter signed by Admor Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn of Lubavitch, dated: Brooklyn, 12th of Adar, 1947.

Greetings to Rabbi Moshe HaKohen in the wake of his wife's declining health, signed by the Admor [in Hebrew]: May G-d send her a cure and strengthen her health and you should be successful in the issues that you deal with a plentiful income..."

Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn [1880-1950] was the sixth Chabad-Lubavitch rebbe. He became Admor in 1920. In 1927, he was imprisoned by the communist government and moved to Poland after his release. At the outbreak of the Second World War, in 1939, he was in Warsaw. In light of the difficult situation, the Chabad chassidim in the United States tried to extricate him from Europe. With the help of senior members of the American government and the head of the German military intelligence, the Rebbe, his family and about another 20 other people were smuggled from Poland to Riga, from there to Stockholm and finally to the United States (in Adar, 1940).
