Background: The Admor of Radomsk was one of the leading chassidic leaders of his time. He was born in 1844, and was raised and educated by his saintly father, Rabbi Shlomo HaKohen of Radomsk, author of Tiferet Shlomo, and studied kabbala with him. He was only 23 years old when his father died, but the chassidim accepted him as Admor. He was renowned for his sharp wit and genius, dedication to the public good, and righteousness. He passed away in 1892. Some of the Torah that he said over to his chassidim was printed in the prominent Chessed L'Avraham works (Piotrkow, 1893-1897).

Condition: Very fine. Not bound. Red edges.
