Letter handwritten and signed by the Admor Rabbi Yisrael Friedman of Husiatyn, from Av when he was resting in Jerusalem. Addressed to his grandson “my dear rabbi, husband to my daughter Mr. Yehoshua Heschel Bauminger shlita.” He thanks him for clarifying some issue about a divorcer, and at the end he adopts a grandfatherly voice: “Why do you not take a rest as well, come hear and rest a little from your work, those in Tel Aviv talk of an extreme heat, while here in Jerusalem there are pleasant breezes and the mountains surrounding it bring very nice air. Asking after you with love, Rabbi Mordechai Feivish.” Size 16.5x21cm. Written on high-quality paper, folding creases, light stains, overall good condition.
Rabbi Yisrael Friedman of Husiatyn (1858-1949), the elder of the rebbes of the Ruzhin family, named after his grandfather the founder of the dynasty Rabbi Yisrael of Ruzhin. In 1894 he was appointed to succeed his father as rebbe of Husiatyn and the thousands of disciples who had followed his father now accepted his authority. Toward the end of his life he immigrated to Israel and settled in Tel Aviv, where he established his court.
