Handwritten and signed letter by the gaon Rabbi Meir Lerner, dated 1910.

Rabbi Meir Lerner [1857-1930], rabbi of the Bnei Yisrael Society in London and rabbi of Altona. In his youth, he learned with Rabbi Shalom Kutna, and established ties with the head of the Beit Din Krakow, Avraham Naftali Hertz Yanner. In late 1873, he traveled to Berlin to study with Rabbi Ezriel Hildesheimer in the Beit Midrash L'Rabbanim in Berlin. He was rabbinically ordained by him in 1880. After a number of years, he moved to Altona to be rabbi there. He founded the Moriah society for the settlement of the Land of Israel, particular that people who are not mitzvah-observant not take part.
