More About this Item


Description: Long autograph letter (four and one half pages) signed by Rabbi "Aharon Leib Shteiman". Montreux (Switzerland), 1942. Halachic responsum on the laws of Yayin Nesech, and regarding the kashrut of tartaric acid and oil made from grape pits. At the end of the letter, before his signature he writes: "In any case, I do not intend to decide and give a halachic ruling, only to study Torah, and G-d should show us the true path". Rabbi Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman was born in Brisk, Lithuania and studied in Lithuanian yeshivas. Evading the Polish military draft, he traveled to Switzerland in the summer of 1938 together with his friend Moshe Soloveitchik to study at the Montreux Yeshiva. This journey soon before the outbreak of World War II proved to be the miracle which saved these two Torah giants who impacted the whole Torah world in our times: R. Moshe Soloveitchik in Zurich led the Torah-faithful Jews in Europe and R. Aharon Leib Shteinman in Bnei Brak. [The family's original name was Shteiman, but upon the arrival of his family in Eretz Israel, he added the letter Nun to his name - Rabbi Shteinman]. 4 leaves, 21.5 cm. Good condition, creases and minor tears.
