Lot 216


Typed Letter Signed, to Rabbi Zalman Sorotzkin from his nephew. Aerogramme

Cleveland: 1954

Est: $150 - $250
Rabbi Elijah Meir Bloch (1894-1955) Rosh Yeshivah of Telz, Lithuania, recently reestablished after World War Two in Cleveland, Ohio, informs his uncle, Rabbi Zalman Sorotzkin (see lot 236) of his recovery from illness. The severity of the illness is attested to by the fact that Rabbi Bloch signs himself “Hayim Elijah Meir.” The name “Hayim” is often added to a person gravely ill in the prayer that they will recover.
