Letter recorded on a postcard, handwritten and signed by the Admor of Shomrei Emunim, Rabbi Aharon Roth.

Nine lines in his handwriting and with his signature.

The Admor Rabbi Aharon Roth [Reb Aherle] [1894-1947] established the Shomrei Emunim chassidut which generated the Toldot Aharon and later Toldot Avraham Yitzchak chassidut. He was known as "Rebbe Aherele," and even today, members of this community from the "yishuv hayashan" in Jerusalem are known as "Rebbe Aharlech." He was born in Ungvar. His father was a butcher, and he himself established his own dynasty, a very rare phenomenon. He was a disciple of Rabbi Tzvi Elimelech Shapiro of Bluzhov, who authorized him to serve as an Admor. In 1925, he traveled to Jerusalem and established chassidic groups and made students to practice the service of Hash-m in the chassidic ways. He permanently immigrated to Palestine in 1939. He was holy and ascetic; he demanded that his chassidim live extremely modest, ascetic lifestyles. He authored many works, including Shomer Emunim, and Teharat HaKodesh. The current chassidic groups carrying on his practices are "Toldot Aharon," "Shomrei Emunim," "Toldot Avraham Yitzchak," "Mevakshei Emunah," and others.

[1] leaf. 15x9 cm. Some of the letter is a bit faded. Very fine condition.
