Opening: $300

Printed leaf, appeal for support for the Torah MiTzion anthology. Jerusalem, 1888.
Torah MiTzion was published in Jerusalem in 1887-1902 by the publisher and printer R. Shmuel Zuckermann, and edited by R. Yaakov Orenstein. It served as a prominent forum for the Torah thoughts and halachic novellae of many of the leading Torah scholars of the time, such as the Maharil Diskin, R. Yitzchak Elchanan Spektor, the Netziv of Volozhin, R. Shmuel Salant, R. Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld, and others.
After the publication of the fourth volume, the publisher issued the present appeal, calling for assistance with the publication expenses. He describes the widespread distribution of the anthology, and the many praises it garnered. He concludes with a long list of rabbis who urge to support the anthology.
