Tonight: Rare Opportunity to See Historic Kisvei Yad and Original Antique Seforim

[COMMUNICATED] One of the most essential components of Torah is our Mesorah. The basis of Torah Shel B’al Peh is the unbroken chain or Rebbe to talmid going back directly to Moshe Rabbeinu. When we connect with our Mesorah, the great Ba’alei Mesorah of our past are with us in spirit every single day. We learn the words of Rebbe Akiva Eger, the Chassam Sofer, the Shelah, the No’am Elimelech, sifsoseihem dovevos bakever – their lips move as we learn their Torah. Every additional connection we have with our mesorah strengthens our emunah, and elevates our yir’as Shomayim by bringing us in contact with the greatness of our past.

Can you imagine reading an actual handwritten Teshuva from the Chasam Sofer, or Chiddushim on Maseches Chulin by R Yisroel Salanter, or the original manuscript of the Hagahos of R’ Akiva Eiger on Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim?

The Legacy Collection will host an exclusive display of curated kisvei yad, rare seforim, and important historical letters and works by gedolei olam of the past thousand years.

Analyze a document written by the kehilla of Metz, France where the Shagas Aryeh was Rav, regarding the right to a certain seat, with a complete paragraph written by the Shagas Aryeh himself. Read a letter written by the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch to Chabad of Tzfas. See for yourself the personal diary of MaRan Rav Moshe Feinstein in which he recorded the most difficult questions asked to him.

Also on display are a first edition Sefer Noam Elimelech that is over 200 years old, a first edition of the Divrei Chaim M’Ssanz, Kisvei Yad from the Chasam Sofer, R’ Akiva Eiger, the Chiddushei HaRim and much more.

The original first-edition Siddur HaShloh, printed in Amsterdam in 1717, over 300 years ago, will be on display. This Siddur Sha’ar HaShamayim is one of the most famous and highly valued siddurim ever printed and has been used by many tzadikim throughout the generations. It bears Haskamos from the Tosefos Yomtov and the Bach, which were not printed in all later editions.

Another highlight of this collection is a unique compilation of correspondence from the archives of Bais Brisk, comprising a number of original letters written between the great tzadikim of the house of Brisk and other Torah leaders. An 1875 letter from the Bais HaLevi written to Reb Meir (Marcus) Lehman regarding a Haskoma on Rav Lehman’s commentary on the Yerushalmi will be displayed; a magnificent letter regarding Kosher food (particularly for those traveling to America) from Rav Chaim Brisker, a letter from Rav Simcha Zelig Reiger, the Dayan of Brisk,and a letter from the Brisker Rav to Rav Isser Zalman Meltzer, and another letter, from Rav Yosef Dov (Berel) Soloveitchik to the Chazon Ish, makes mention of R’ Avrohom Yehoshua Soloveitchik Shlit”a.

We will also be showing a handwritten list from the Chofetz Chaim himself about his seforim

With a detailed list of the seforim and their prices. And, The original Toldos Yaakov Yosef, the first chassidishe sefer ever printed, an extremely rare item will also be on display.

On Wednesday, July 7, you’ll have the opportunity to get a firsthand look at these pieces, among many others of the Legacy Collection powered by Roth and Co. The event will benefit Mesivta Ner Moshe.
