Dear Marshall:
You are cordially invited to join us at the U.S. Congress salute to "Vision and Guidance" on April 17, 3:00 p.m. at the Caucus Room of the Russell Senate Office Building in the Capital.
This event, sponsored in cooperation with the American Friends of Lubavitch, will mark two extraordinary milestones which coincide on the calendar, the completion of the 850th year since the birth of the "Maimonides" and the ushering in of the 85th year of the Lubavitcher Rebbe Shlitoh.
"Maimonides" Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon (1135-1204), who was a great giant in Jewish philosophy and codifier of Halacha, was at the same time a great physician -- a physician to courts, who was also erudite in mathematics, physics, astronomy and metaphysics. He harmonized reason with revelation, resulting in his role as the "Guide".
The Lubavitcher Rebbe Shlitoh, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, today eight centuries later serves a parallel role. The U.S. Congress has appropriately recognized and the President has accordingly proclaimed his birthday as "Education Day USA".
Your achievement and contribution to science today will be recognized at this event.
The group of "friends" who are sponsoring this event, will be happy to cover your travel and lodging expenses. Kindly contact immediately the office of the American Friends of Lubavitch at (215) 725-2030 for arrangements.
Hoping that your schedule will allow you to accept our invitation and looking forward to greeting you. We remain
Sincerely yours,
Rudy Boschwitz
Bob Dole
Joe Biden
Chic Hecht
