A woman once wrote a letter to the Lubavitcher rebbe, she wanted to add another empty chair at the Seder table —in memorial of the victims of the Holocaust, in order to educate her children. The Rebbe replied to her: "Don't add a empty chair. Add a FULL chair. Bring another Jew to sit the table with you!" Our victory and revenge is to have another Jew in the world —another Jew who feels Jewish, who is proud, whose ways of life will be more Jewish. This is our real victory!

In the 1948 meeting notes for the Maimonides school, we see the following:
Question was raised of teaching children Hebrew in Hebrew. Mrs. Soloveitchik pointed out that the Hebrew Dept. of the school stressed the religious content so that the Hebrew language had been neglected. However, for the past few years, the Rabbi [Soloveitchik] has asked the Hebrew teachers to use more Hebrew and great attention to the language and grammar is now being paid. (Minutes book of the Maimonides School, May 29, 1948, p. 16 in Farber, An American Orthodox Dreamer, p. 116)
