Yivarechich Hashem MiTzion - printed receipt letter, Jerusalem 191... With a picture of Rachel's Tomb - second decade of the 20th century. The margins bear a signature of the Admor of Lelov, Rabbi Shimon Nosson Nota Biderman [the first].

The Yiddish text blesses the donors and promises to pray for them at the holy sites, the Western Wall and Rachel's Tomb.

Rabbi Shimon Nota Biderman [1869-1930] was the fifth Admor of Lelov. He was a sage of the Shaar Shamayim yeshiva. He traveled to Poland on occasion to spend time with his rabbi, Rabbi Perlow of Stolin. During his last visit, he settled in Krakow where he served as Admor, and only returned to the Land of Israel thirteen years later, in 1926. In the Land of Israel, his father's chassidim and others gathered around him. Letters in his hand and with his signature are very rare. Most of his known letters were written in his name by his son, Admor Rabbi Moshe Mordechai of Lelov.

Size: 9x11 cm. Very fine condition.
