?דאס מיינט מען מיר
כל אחד המגין, ובגלוי, על הענינים שכ"ק אדמו"ר מסר נפשו עליהם – ה"ה ממשיך על עצמו ועל כל ב"ב שיחיו מטוב הסתום שיהי' בטוב הנראה ונגלה ממש בגו"ר...
This copy of a letter by the Lubavitcher Rebbe זי"ע - written soon after ascending the "throne of leadership" - was sent to me by a good friend. When I asked him if he included me in that category, and that's why he sent me the letter, he very strongly said "YES!" I'm not one to toot my own horn, and far be it from me to do things like ע"מ לקבל פרס, but it's nice to know that my work is appreciated... Unless you say - like some Lubavitchers do - that what I do here does the opposite, it only makes people think worse of Lubavitch and the Rabbeyim/Chassidus. But even so; if what I'm doing here is defending, then it shouldn't matter what the end result is, as long as the right intentions are there... The Rebbe would always וואונטש it should be בטוב הנראה והנגלה. The אייבערשטער always does what it is good. He is goodness. But sometimes the goodness is not visible, and that's why we ask that it be "seen and revealed" goodness. Goodness that simple people like us can see and feel and appreciate.
This pleases the Tzig.
