Lot Number 395

Letter by Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzinski to Rabbi Shmuel Salant – Vilnius, 1903

Lengthy and interesting letter in handwriting and signature of the Ga’on Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzinski. Vilnius, Isru-Chag Pesach 1903.
Letter sent to the Ga’on Rabbi Shmuel Salant, rabbi of Jerusalem, concerning monetary matters of the “Kollelim” in Jerusalem. In the letter he harshly opposes sending money in a manner which directly passes through the hands of a specific individual, and he notes: “Regarding the funds sent to a specific individual, I am requesting that in the future they avoid doing so and we will refuse to accept them, because eventually it will be unclear who the money belongs to”. He forewarns of rumors spread by other sects opposing the collection of funds for Rabbi Meir Ba’al HaNess, which negatively affects fundraising. “This obstacle arises from those searching for a pretext who wish to use the fund of Rabbi Meir Ba’al HaNess for other matters, or by those who have futile dreams and make use of the fund of Rabbi Meir Ba’al HaNess, and therefore fabricate tales about the emissaries and claim that they will send them directly…”.
2 pages, 20.5 cm. More than 25 lines in his handwriting and signature. Fair condition, scorching on leaf margins without damage to text.
