More About this Item


Description: Letter signed by Rabbi "Moshe son of R. Amram Greenwald". Chust, 1902. Interesting letter sent to the US, regarding arranging a get (divorce bill) for a woman who fled to the US abandoning her husband who remained unable to remarry. In this letter, he requests to warn the woman that if she does not agree to accept the get "I am prepared to give him a 'heter me'ah rabbanim' (signatures of 100 rabbis) and he will be permitted to remarry, and she will remain alone until her hair turns white". R. Moshe Ben-Amram Greenwald (1853-1910, HaChatam Sofer Ve'Talmidav p. 521) was a leading Hungarian Torah scholar and head of yeshiva. Disciple of R. Menachem Katz Prostitz of Deutschkreutz (Zelem) and disciple of the Ktav Sofer in Pressburg. He headed a yeshiva in his native city of Cherna in his youth, later serving in the rabbinate of several Hungarian communities and from 1893 as Rabbi of Chust. Although he studied in the yeshiva of the Chatam Sofer, he was affiliated with Chassidism and would travel to the Belz and Siget rebbes. He was renowned for his compositions on halacha and aggadah titled Arugat HaBosem. His son was R. Ya'akov Yechizkiya Greenwald Av Bet Din and Rebbe of Papa, and his grandson is R. Yosef Greenwald of Papa, who established the Papa Chassidism in America after the Holocaust. Leaf, 21.5 cm. Scribal writing with one and a half lines handwritten by R. Moshe Greenwald, with his signature. Good-fair condition. Restored tears. Old adhesive tape stains.
