Throughout the book there are several handwritten inscriptions: Eliezer Chaim son of Rivka for sustenance. A page was found to have been placed in the book with a list of names requiring a salvation, according to the tradition that chassidim place kvitlach in the books of righteous people, as their lips move in the grave. Rabbi Zvi Elimelech of Dinov (1783-1841), one of the great chassidic leaders, known primarily by the title the Bnei Yisaschar after the name of his books that are known for their holiness and were especially beloved by the great chassidic leaders of all the generations. In addition, he wrote a large range of books on all disciplines of the Torah – Igra D’Pirka, Derech Pikudecha, Ma’ayan Ganim and others. Rabbi Emmanuel Weltfried, the rebbe of Pavnitz-Lodz (died in 1939), son of Rabbi Avraham Moshe, son-in-law from his first marriage of Rabbi Yehoshua of Zdikov author of Ateret Yeshua, and from his second marriage of Rabbi Arieh Leib of Ozharov. A scion of the Przedborz dynasty – one of lesser known Polish chassidic courts. A great grandson and grandson of the Chozeh of Lublin (his grandfather Rabbi Emmanuel who he was named after was the son-in-law of Rabbi Yisrael the son of the Chozeh). There is a chassidic tradition that when the authorities decreed that everyone must have a surname, the founder of the dynasty Rabbi Yeshayahu wanted to perpetuate the expression ‘eternal joy’ – in Yiddish Welfried, and thus their surname was chosen.
