Two letters in the handwriting and with the signature of the Rebbe the author of the 'Emunat Moshe' of Aleksander Rabbi Yehuda Moshe Tyberg. The two letters were addressed to Rabbi Moshe Chaim Tyberg [enclosed is a banknote for the sum of 1 Israeli lira which the Rebbe gave for travel expenses].

One letter is dated: 14th Adar 5711 [1951], in which the Rebbe blesses Rabbi Moshe Chaim Tyberg that he should succeed in selling his old apartment in Rehovot and in the purchase of a new apartment in Tel Aviv. The second letter is dated: 13th Tevet 5719 [1959] and blesses him with mazal tov on the new address - Helen Keller House in Tel Aviv and blesses him: "And may it be His will that you have great pleasure in all aspects, as they say in the Holy City of Jerusalem 'Yiddishe Nachas'". In the margins of the letter the Rebbe requests: "I ask that you come soon to the holy city of Jerusalem to be with me, this could be slightly difficult for you, but it is very important to me, and please do as I request...".

Enclosed is a 1 Israeli lira banknote with a note 'The night after the festival of Shavuot 1957, the Rebbe [of Aleksander] gave me 1 lira for travel expenses'.
