Ohalei Shem, including names of famous rabbis of the period with details of each one's lineage, his works and his address [!], to facilitate exchanges of letters between rabbis and assist travelers on their way.

The editor, Rabbi Shmuel Gotleib attempted to include rabbis from Oriental countries in his book, but their representation in the book is naturally relatively smaller; the book includes just about every rabbi of the period.

The editor sent letters to all the rabbis in order to receive their details from them, when he sent his letter to the Chafetz Chaim ztz"l he received a response as follows: "After asking after his loftiness, I received his letter and I really wanted to fulfill the request of his Torah honor, but my friend, this matter is difficult for me, because my name has already been overly publicized against my will, and how can I myself cause more publicity by writing all my works [which I published only in the merit of the Jewish people] ..." And yet, the editor adds that he suspects that publicizing this letter would also be against the wishes of the Chafetz Chaim, but he hopes he will forgive him.
