Rare postcard of Rabbeinu Yeshayle Krestirer

Rare postcard bearing a portrait of Rabbeinu Yeshayle Krestirer, with an inscription below in Hebrew and Hungarian. Such a quality copy of the rabbi’s figure has not been found to date. His picture is known as a segula, there are those who hang them up in their homes. The folds in this postcard seem to suggest whoever owned it kept it in his jacket pocket as a segulah. Light stains. Generally very good condition. Rabbi Yeshaya Steiner (1852-1925) from Krestir (Bodrogkeresztur) was one of the most important and well-known Admorim in Hungary. When he was 3, his father died, and at age 12 his widowed mother sent him to Rabbi Zvi Hirsch from Liska, where he was until his Rav died, and then he succeeded him, but remained indigent and did not think of himself. He is considered a miracle-worker and many amazing stories are told of him. Until today thousands of people continue to visit his grave and unburden their hearts there, and many amazing stories have been generated about the power of that event. He is known for his merciful heart and his care for the parnasa of the Jewish people. The amulets given during his lifetime to those seeking deliverance were written on parchment by professional scribes from his students, and he would himself bless them and give them by hand. His picture is most known as a segula against rats in a home, after an incident when he blessed a home and rats left the Jews’ bags of wheat, as well as another where he blessed a Jew who had been sued and rats came and ate the suit that was hanging before him in the court.
