Unknown Halakhic Response by Rabbi Mordechai Winkler, the Renowned Rabbi of Mad, Author of Levushei Mordechai. Mad, 1921 [Hebrew]

Halakhic response sent to Rabbi Yaakov Segal of the Kapish community.

Specifications: [1] postcards, 15x10.5 cm, entirely in his handwriting, with his signature and official stamp.

Rabbi Mordechai Leib Winkler [1845-1932] studied at Yeshivat Pressburg, and was ordained by Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Binyamin Sofer, author of Ktav Sofer. He served as rabbi and rosh yeshiva in the town of Mad, Hungary. He authored a series of responsa, Levushei Mordechai. He was considered among the greatest halakhic authorities of his generation, and disseminated Torah to thousands. The yeshiva he established in 1901 produced many Torah scholars and teachers.

Unique Features: To the best of our knowledge, his responsum has not been printed at all, not even in in the new complete edition of Shu"t.

Condition: Very fine.
