Background: Rabbi Aryeh Leibush HaLevi Horowitz, (1828-1902). Grandson of the Shl"ah. He was Rabbi Shalom of Kaminka's primary disciple. The Divrei Chaim of Sanz would rise in his presence. He served as rabbi in Rudnik and then in Lantzut. He became blind in his later years, and the city adjudicators were astonished at how he felt by touch that an uncertainty which arose was regarding a goose and not a chicken. He passed away on 20 Kislev 1902.

Condition: Very fine.
