Very important letter, a invitation from the Holy Belzer Rebbe to a gathering of Rabbonim to fight the decrees of the Polish government concerning the election of Rabbis of the communities.
As is well known, letters with his handwriting & signature from ‘Belz Inderheim’ are exceedingly rare!
The custom of the Rebbe was to pen a line as if to erase on the characters ‘Amalek’ (עמלק) as is evident in the present letter in his Holy hand.
Beezras Hashem Belz
Many blessings and greetings to my Holy cousin , the righteous and well-known Rabbi, of the lineage of Yuchsin, Crown of Israel, lMaran HaRav Yisrael Shlit”a
Recently, I received your letter. as to the community elections some parts will be a change for the better, but others are delicate matters that can harm the Holy Community, such as questions about the selection of Rabbis and more. Therefore, it is necessary for us to hold a meeting of Rabbis as a council on this matter. There is hope that through the organization of Rabbis, we will be able to act for the good of our brethren in all matters.
I request of my Holy cousin Shlit”a, , to make an effort to strengthen the Holy Community and write to the Rabbis, asking them to come together on a agreed upon day to join us in one organization. Due to the urgent need for these matters, it is important that this letter be addressed as soon as possible, and may God help us conclude for the good.
Words of his cousin writing for the sake of strengthening the Holy Torah & wishing him well with love.

The famous Holy Maran Rebbe Aharon Rokeach of Belz (1880-1957), son of Rebbe Yissaschar Dov and grandson of Rebbe Yehoshua of Belz, was renowned as a holy man and miracle worker, who was called “Aharon, G-d’s holy one”. He was among the leaders of European Jewry before the Holocaust, as well as a rebuilder of Torah and Chassidut after the war. His ascetic lifestyle and obvious holiness caused thousands of followers to flock to his court for blessings and advice.
