Letter of blessing and support upon the publication of the book about Rabbi Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld by Moshe Teitelbaum, Av Beit Din of Sighet, New York. Chanukah, 1980.

Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum, who was saved from the Nazi enemy, returned to Sighet after the war and attempted to establish a Jewish center there. He later immigrated to the United States, where he joined his uncle, the author of VaYoel Moshe, and was rabbi of a synagogue in Borough Park named for the Sighet community in Hungary. He eventually succeeded his uncle as Admor.

Rabbi Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld [1848-1932] was the first rabbi of the Edah HaChareidit in Jerusalem. His biography was written by Menachem Mendel Gerlitz and Rabbi Moshe Sofer in the book Mara D'Ar'a Yisrael. In this letter, the writer recommends supporting the publication of the third volume of the book.

[1] leaf. 18x27 cm. Typewritten on paper blank. Signed by the "Berech Moshe." Very fine condition.
