The Rebbe's holy letter to Mrs. Gansburg
As we stand following the Holocaust, we are on a threshold of Moshiach's arrival, And he awaits us to finish the task of our generation.
A devoted Chassidim, Reb Itche and Gitte Gansburg, threw themselves entirely to the Rebbe's outreach work in Eretz Yisroel. This took a toll on the family, And Mrs. Gansburg wrote the Rebbe that they were finding it difficult to handle.
The Rebbe King Messiah responded in a unique letter and he asked her to publicize it among other Lubavitcher families.
"As we stand following the Holocaust, we are on a threshold of Moshiach's arrival, And he awaits us to finish the task of our generation," the Rebbe wrote her.
"It is therefore incumbent upon everyone of us to say to ourselves as the posuk states (Yoel 4:10) "The weak one shall say -"I am mighty!""
"With the proper resolve, one can reveal concealed strengths. Especially man and woman who were raised in a Chassidishe home, they merely have to make the commitment and they immediately will realize these inner strengths."
The Rebbe concluded, "May we merit to experience somewhat of the Baal Shem Tov's teachings, that every Yid has the power to cross a river with a handkerchief, if they would only truly believe."
