The Rebbe Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac Yehuda Yechiel of Komarno (1874-1906), the nephew and the primary disciple of Rabbi Zvi Hirsch of Zidichov, was the Rabbi of Zidichov and Komarno and served as Rebbe of Komarno. At the same time he traveled to the greatest Rebbes of his generation, and especially to Rabbi Yehoshua Heschel of Apta (the "Ohev Yisrael") and later to Rabbi Yisrael of Ruzhin who praised him enthusiastically. He was famous as a miracle worker and he had a large congregation of chassidim. He wrote works on the revealed and hidden Torah. He is well-known as the author of Heichal HaBrachah.
Tiny tears in the margins with damage to very few letters. A few stains. Fine condition.
