Lot Number 34

Historical Photograph of Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook and Rabbi Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld

Historical photograph in which Rabbi Kook, Chief Rabbi of Israel is sitting together with Rabbi Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld, Rabbi of "Eida HaCharedit" of Jerusalem [congregation which was established as a result of the opposition to the rabbinate of Rabbi Kook and the establishment of the Chief Rabbinate by the Zionistic Delegate Committee] together with other rabbis of Jerusalem. Apparently the photograph was taken during the "cornerstone-laying" of one of the new neighborhoods of Jerusalem. Despite the public rivalry between the two rabbis they had a deep friendship and appreciation of one another. This is also apparent in this interesting photograph.
Approx. 12x17 cm. Clear photograph in very good condition, imprinted stamp of photographer "Tzakov Basan, Jerusalem".
