“I have just had the pleasant surprise of receiving Masechet Shabbat (Part One) which has been published by [Rabbi Steinsaltz] along with his explanation and so on. Happy the man who sees good fruits from his labors. May he continue in this way and add yet more light, for in the matters of holiness there is always room to add and we have been commanded to add for they are linked to the Holy One who is infinite.”Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe ל"ז
