To the learned, G-d-fearing and well-loved chassid
who engages in serving communal needs,

Rabbi [ ... ],

Greetings and Blessings!

In response to your notification that a daughter has been born to yourself and your wife in an auspicious moment, and that she has been named ….. (May she be blessed with a good and long life, Amen!) -

May it be G-d’s will that together with your wife you raise her to Torah, to the Chppah (wedding), and to good deeds, out of prosperity.

As is known in the name of the Rebbe Rashab, that also in the “mi sheberach” prayer for a newborn daughter, it is our custom to say, ”to Torah, to the Chuppa (wedding), and to good deeds.” The source for this is the teaching of our Sages (Tractate Berachos 17a): “By virtue of what are women meritorious [of Olam Habba]? They bring their children to study the Written Torah in the shul, they send their husbands to study the Oral Torah in the Sages’ House of Study, and they wait for their husbands to return from the Sages’ House of Study.”

With blessings of Mazel-Tov,

[the Rebbe's signature]
