"יברכך ה' מציון" ["May Hash-m bless you from Tziyon"] receipt with a printed thank-you letter from Jerusalem at the beginning of the 20th century, with a drawing of Rachel's Tomb. The holy Admor's signature appears at the end.

In the Yiddish text, there is a blessing for the donors along with a promise to pray for them at the holy sites: the Western Wall and Rachel's Tomb.

The Admor Rabbi Shimon Nota Biderman (1869-1930) was the fifth Admor of Lelov. He was one of the sages of the Sha'arei Shamayim yeshivah. He traveled to Poland to visit, and stayed a lot with his rabbi, Rabbi Yisrael Perlow of Stolin. During his last visit, he settled in Krakow and conducted himself as Admor there. He returned to the Land of Israel in 1926, after 13 years. His father's Chassidim and others gathered around him in the Land of Israel. It is rare to find letters with his signature, most of his known letters were written in his name by his son, the Admor Rabbi Moshe Mordechai of Lelov.
