Important Letter from Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer to Rabbi Isser Yehudah Unterman

Letter about the importance of Oztar HaPoskim's endeavors. From Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer to Rabbi Isser Yehudah Unterman. Jerusalem, 1945.

Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer writes at length about Otzar HaPoskim's endeavors and its significance for rabbis. He writes that for this holy purpose his friend Rabbi Herzog established this important institute, together with the assistance of the Committee of Aid for Rabbinical Refugees from Russia (an organization headed by Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer). Rabbi Isser Zalman requests the support and assistance of Rabbi Isser Yehudah Unterman, who was then the rabbi of Liverpool and later chief rabbi of Israel.

Attached to the letter is Otzar HaPoskim's brochure, and a printed pamphlet, providing a sample of the first volume of Otzar HaPoskim's books.

Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer (1870-1953) was a disciple of the Netziv and of Rabbi Chaim Soloveitchik in Volozhin. He served as the head of the Slobodka yeshivah and then served as the head of the Slutzk yeshivah starting in 1897. He was also the city's rabbi beginning in 1925, simultaneously serving as head of the Etz Chaim yeshivah in Jerusalem until his passing.

Signed in his hand.
