Holy cup used by Rabbeinu Haim Elazer Shapira of Munkatch, the Minchat Elazar, from the gathering against Agudat Yisrael in 1922.
We received this holy chalice that was given to our holy rabbi Rabbi Chaim Elazar Shapira - "Minchat Elazar" of Munkacs during the meeting headed by him in the city of Tshap in 1922 (see below). To the best of our knowledge, nothing remained of this historical meeting (other than a printed protocol) and religious objects from this rabbi have not been yet sold in public auctions.The silver cup is engraved with the name of the Rabbeinu: "Rabbi Chaim Elazar Shapira Mukachevo [Munkacz] Tshap 1922". The cup was found by a Jew in one of the markets of the gypsies in the Carpathian region, completely blackened and defective on the bottom. The man who discovered the name of Rabbeinu on the chalice was very excited and purchased it from the non-Jews. Because the cup was not properly preserved over the years and was in the hands of the gypsies, it was stained with various damage and suffered various blows which caused a large crack at the bottom. The cup was cleaned very lightly to identify the inscription clearly. The Rabbis' meeting in Tchap was held in 1922, and many of the rabbis of Europe participated in a discussion of the prohibition of participation in the Agudath Israel movement, which was established a decade earlier. From this gathering there remains a strong protocol stating, among other things: "It was certainly accepted from all those gathered that in our countries, according to the religion of our Torah, we are not allowed to connect with the Association ..." This proclamation is signed by Rabbi Chaim Elazar Shapira - the Admor of Munkatch, Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum - Av Beit Din of Arshiva [later the Satmar Rebbe] and another of Israel's greats at the time.

Remember what Amalek did to you: JOOD armband that the Jews of the Netherlands were obliged to go during the Shoah - rare!
White fabric with a blue Star of David and the inscription “Jood” in the middle, which the Jews of the Netherlands were required to wear during the Shoah. Stains, generally good condition. Armbands from the Netherlands are considered relatively rare since most Dutch Jews wore yellow badges, as in most other places where Jews were required to carry a badge of identification. It is possible that the person who wore this had a role in one of the camps and therefore he wore it and not a yellow badge. Background: The decree instructing Jews to carry an ID was issued in the Netherlands on April 29, 1942.The yellow badge was worn beginning on May 4, 1942. The badge, a yellow Star of David with the word "Jood" in Dutch, was ordered to be sewnon the left-side of the chest, at the height of the heart, so that it would be visible in a public place. Jews who were caught without the badge were sent to six weeks' imprisonment [Yad Vashem]. In 1939, the Judenrat in Poland announced: "Beginning on July 10, 1941, all men, women and children aged 14 and over must wear a white band with a blue Star of David on the right arm. The width of the ribbon is 12 cm. The thickness of the blue line of the Star of David must be at least one centimeter,"but soon the yellow star on the lapel replaced the armbands. On April 29, 1942, a directive was published in the Netherlands that all Jews must wear a yellow star on the left side of the chest with a black inscription (the word Jew). It should be noted that in the Netherlands, many demonstrative expressions of solidarity were expressed by the non-Jewish population. On May 1, 1942, one of the underground newspapers in the Netherlands printed 300,000 stars with the inscription "Jews and non-Jews are equal."

He brings his father's sermons, "Chidushei Torah by Avi Mori and Rabbi HaGaon Shai in the Sages." ". We have looked everywhere and not found that these words of Torah were printed anywhere, nor did he leave any clues between the verses of his holy writings, and it is clear that he spared no effort and filled the pages of the book from one extreme to the other with words of Torah, and he did not have the time to be secular, such as leaving his name or place of residence. We only know that this innovative book came through the city of Krakow–an important city whose many Jewish inhabitants enriched the Jewish world. One of the first pages has a question and response, probably a copy of a letter sent to Rabbi Ya'akov Waller, Av Beit Din of Bitsha and Agapi [Rabbi Ya'akovWaller, a grandson and great-grandson of Rabbi Heshil of Krakow, Rabbi of Bitsha (Transchin District of Slovakia) author of the book "Beit Ya'akov" on Tractate Eiruvin.] The innovations in the book begin in the early 1840s, and we have seen in 1844 and beyond until after the 1870s.
