Interesting Letter by Rabbi Yitzchak Kosovsky-Shachor Av Bet Din of Volkovysk to Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook Regarding the Verse

Lot 426: Interesting Letter by Rabbi Yitzchak Kosovsky-Shachor Av Bet Din of Volkovysk to Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook Regarding the Verse "For from Zion Torah Will Come Forth" Said on the Subject of Opening the Hebrew University in Jerusalem

by Kedem Public Auction House Ltd

March 11, 2015, 5:00 PM EET

Jerusalem, Israel

Description: A long interesting letter by Rabbi Yitzchak Kosovsky (Shachor) Av Bet Din of Volkovysk to "The great Torah genius of our times...lofty tzaddik Cohen greatest among his brothers and head of the rabbis of the Holy Land..." - Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook regarding an argument with the Zionist Committee in his city following the opening of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Volkovysk, 1927. Rabbi Kosovsky writes Rabbi Kook that he saw him at the home of his brother-in-law Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzensky and he turns to him with request of assistance. He relates that in his city, as well as in other cities, the opening of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem was celebrated with much fanfare and glory in the local synagogue and he too was invited to the celebration. He spoke in honor of the occasion but when he saw a proclamation among the decorations hung in the synagogue with the inscription "'For from Zion Torah will come forth and G-d's word from Jerusalem' - in honor of the opening of the Hebrew University" it irked him greatly. At that time, he did not express his dissent hoping that the proclamation would be removed immediately after the celebration but when time passed and the sign still remained he began to act on this matter. The heads of the Zionist Committee in his city fiercely opposed taking down the sign and an argument developed between the committee and the rabbi. As of the time the letter was written (two years after the celebration of the opening of the university) the proclamation had still not been removed, but Rabbi Kosovsky reached an agreement with the heads of the Zionist Committee that they will bring the dispute before Rabbi Kook and he will determine the matter. Among other things, Rabbi Kosovsky relates that the Mizrachi rabbis in Vilnius also expressed their opposition to the use of this verse as the title for the university's celebration and even Rabbi Hager who visited his city protested against the sign hanging in the synagogue, but to no avail. On April 1, 1925, the official opening ceremony of the Hebrew University took place on Mount Scopus with the participation of many renowned and eminent persons. Among them were Lord Balfour, Rabbi Kook, Chaim Weizmann, Bialik, and others. The ceremony was joined by celebrations all over the Jewish world by the Zionist Movement. The establishment of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem was presented as an event of historical national importance and was regarded as the building of a spiritual Temple on the mountains of Jerusalem. The newspaper headlines [already on the eve of the ceremony] were full of verses in this vein, especially taken from the Yeshayahu's prophesies (Chapter 2): "And at the end of the days, the mount of G-d's House shall be erected on the top of the mountains...Let us ascend to the Mountain of G-d...For from Zion Torah shall come forth...". Rabbi Kook mentioned the verse "For from Zion Torah shall come forth" in his speech and prayer at the ceremony but in an opposite context, rather as a plea that the prophecy shall be fulfilled in its original manner by the building of the third Temple. This did not prevent Jerusalem zealots from attacking Rabbi Kook claiming that he used the verse to depict the university and to spread this fabrication all over the world. The letter was printed in Likutei HaRa'aya Volume 3, p. 206. Rabbi Yitzchak Kosovsky-Shachor (1777-1951), a Lithuanian Torah sage who studied in the Telz Yeshiva, son-in-law of Rabbi David Shlomo Grodzensky Av Bet Din of Iwye. Later, he served as Rabbi of Myropil in Russia. In 1922, he moved to serve as Rabbi of Augustów and in 1925 served as Rabbi of Vawkavysk. In 1934, he moved to South Africa, and was appointed as Rabbi of the Association of Communities in Johannesburg and its surroundings and as president of the Mizrachi Movement in South Africa, a position he kept until his death. [3] pages. 28 cm. Good condition, folding marks, few stains.

Jerusalem, Israel

Description: Letter of a Beit Din adjucation, testimony of divorce. Signed by the rabbi of the city, Rabbi "Avraham ben Rabbi Yehoshua Av Beit Din of Sol" and the members of his Beit Din Rabbi "Yechezkel ben Rabbi Moshe" and Rabbi "Yehuda Yehoshua ben Rabbi Moshe Segal". Sol (village near Smarhoń, Vilna district), 1876. On the leaf margins is another letter, handwritten and signed by Rabbi "Shaul Zelig HaCohen of Dunnaburg [Latvia; later Dvinsk]. The writer asked a question of the Ga'avad of Smarhoń [Rabbi Avraham Chaim Shapira], who responded by post, that the divorce had been performed in the Sol community near his own community, "and with his approval of all the matters of the get... and his handwriting and the signature of Rabbi E. Chaim of the Smarhoń community whom I know well...". Further in the letter, he briefly discusses the halacha of the credibility of testimony which arrives in a letter sent by post and ends that he "writes all these things which I know, to be guarded by the abovementioned woman. And when she will actually wish to marry, it should be further researched". Rabbi Aharon Shaul Zelig HaCohen Gurion Meirov (1813-1879) was a well-known Torah scholar in his times and one of the greatest in Lithuania. Son of Rabbi Meir Shalom HaCohen Gurion and disciple of Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin and Av Beit Din of Karelitz, he was known from his youth as a Torah genius. At the age of 4 [!], he had already begun to study the Talmud and at 18 was appointed head of a yeshiva in Minsk, a position he held for 24 years. Afterward, he served as Av Beit Din of Bryansk and Pruzhany [which earned him the nickname "the Pruzhaner" by which he was known in Torah circles]. From c. 1880, he served as Av Beit Din of Dunnaburg-Dvinsk (succeeding the well-known Torah scholar Rabbi Leib Zolkind Batlan). He corresponded on halachic matters with Rabbi Yitzchak Elchanan and with other Lithuania Torah leaders and his responses were printed in their books (see Be'er Yitzchak responsa, Yoreh Deah Siman 26-28; Rashei Besamim responsa, to his brother Rabbi Moshe Yoel HaCohen Gurion Av Beit Din of Anykščiai; Be'er Moshe responsa to his disciple Rabbi Moshe Danishivsky; Mishkan Bezalel responsa, by Rabbi Yehoshua Bezalel Av Beit Din of Malsch, etc.).

Jerusalem, Israel

Description: Memorandum sent from the Va'ad HaYeshivot to the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, concerning the importance of Torah study in Lithuanian yeshivot consolidated into Va'ad HaYeshivot, signed by the head of the Va'ad, Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzinsky, Vilna, Cheshvan 1938. Four page detailed letter, in Yiddish, titled at the top of each page: "To the honored members of the directorate of the Joint". On Page 4 is the stamp of the management of the Va'ad HaYeshivot in Vilna and the signature of Rabbi Chaim Ozer. The content: Torah knowledge and mitzvah adherence is the basis for the existence of the Jewish people. At all times and in all generations, there were always individuals who studied Torah all the day and invested all their strength into their studies. And so the Torah was transmitted from generation to generation. The Jewish people accepted the obligation to grant these men this privilege and supported Torah learners so that they could study without the yoke of dealing with material needs. Large centers of learners were educated by Torah leaders for knowledge and comprehension of the Torah. These centers are called yeshivot. In the previous generation, most of the yeshivot were concentrated in the vicinity of Lithuania, the eastern region of the Polish Republic. These yeshivot produced leading rabbis and spiritual leaders of the Jewish people. The character of rabbis all over Russia, and most of the rabbis who reached the USA, Africa, Australia and throughout Europe were fashioned in these yeshivot. Further in the memorandum is an interesting description and analysis of the situation after World War I and the task of the rabbis who studied in yeshivot to reinforce Jewish settlements all over the world. Descriptions of the existential difficulties of the yeshivot and of Torah learners. Establishment of Va'ad HaYeshivot in 1924, and a report on the Va'ad operations in granting a certain part of the Yeshiva budget. 4 leaves, official stationery, 29 cm. High-quality bluish paper. Very-good condition, folds and minor creases.
