A segulah coin given out by the righteous man, the Kabbalist Rabbi Avraham Yechiel Fisch, with his signature. 

Specifications: Coin wrapped in paper bearing the signature "Fisch Avraham." 2x4 cm. Nicely framed and matted. 

Background: Rabbi Avraham Yechiel Fisch (d. August 25, 1998), "The Holy Floor Layer", was born in the village of Tarnow, Galicia and studied with the Rebbes of Stutchin and Ropshitz. He was miraculously saved during the Holocaust: The house suddenly became dark when the Germans were about to shoot him, and he managed to escape through the window. Holocaust survivors related that anyone who stayed near Rabbi Avraham Fisch was saved. Rabbi Avraham Fisch was a hidden righteous man - "tzaddik nistar" - for most of his life, and concealed himself with the guise of a simple construction worker. Rabbi Avraham belonged to the group of hidden righteous men who studied from the "Holy Shoemaker" - Rabbi Moshe Yaakov Ravikov. Before his death, the Baba Sali revealed to his close disciples that Rabbi Avraham Fisch from Tel Aviv would be his successor in bringing blessings and salvations to the Jewish people. The hidden righteous man, Rabbi Mendel of Bnei Brak testified that Rabbi Avraham was the leader of the 36 hidden righteous men. 

Condition: Very fine.
