More About this Item


Description: Letter with the signature of Rebbe "Elisha Halberstam Av Beit Din of G?rlitz". G?rlitz, 1934. Letter of recommendation for a young man from the city of G?rlitz,"one of the sharp and unequivocal [Torah scholars] among the young men in our Beit Midrash", who requested to be accepted to a yeshiva and to receive an affidavit for aliya to Eretz Israel. R. Elisha Halberstam (1860-perished in Siberia in 1941), was an eminent Chassidic rebbe in Galicia. Reputedly, his facial features were similar to those of his grandfather, the author of the Divrei Chaim and he was celebrated especially for his adherence to the truth. Son of R. Baruch of G?rlitz (son of the Divrei Chaim of Sanz), and son-in-law of his uncle R. Mordechai Dov of Hornistopol (Gornostaypol) after wedding his daughter Yocheved (called by her grandfather the Divrei Chaim "My wise granddaughter"). He served as Rabbi of Crasna and after his father's death in 1906, he was appointed his successor as Rabbi of G?rlitz. In the beginning, he refused to serve as rebbe and only after the death of his brother R. Zvi Hirsh of Rudnik in 1918, did he agree to accept the position of rebbe and acquiesced to the pleading of his Chassidim to accept kvitlach although he was not pleased to do so. After the outbreak of WWII, he was exiled to Siberia and observed the mitzvoth with transcendent devotedness until the hard labor and freezing cold overcame him and he perished at the Passover Seder table at the time he reached the piyyut "VaYehi BaChatzi HaLeila". His composition Imrei Noam was lost in the Siberian wastelands. Leaf, 22.5 cm. Good condition. Filing holes. Right margins cutoff.
