Very unique copy! 'Sefer HaTerumah' (Żółkiew) – Zhovkva, 1811.

The prsonal copy stamped with the personal stamp of the Holy Rabbi Aharon Moshe MiGeza Zvi and many inscription handwritten by the great Gaon Rabbi Yosef Zundel of Salant 'Father of the Mussar Movement' and the Rav of Rabbi Yisrael Salanter. 

These are two great leaders, righteous and pious Geonim who immigrated to Jerusalem and are considered the founders of the Ashkenazic communities to this day! The two Geonim established basic institutions and acted and led the Chassidic and Ashkenazic communities of Jerusalem. The Tzaddik Gaon Rabbi Zundel of Salant immigrated to Jerusalem at the age of fifty two, served as Moreh Hora'ah of the Ashkenazic community of Jerusalem, which at the time was very small and in his days developed greatly. Rabbi Aharon Moshe was the founder of the Chassidic Yishuv in the Holy Land. 

Rabbi Yosef Zundel was responsible for the library of the "Menachem Zion" Midrash in the Churvat Rabbi Yehuda HeChassid synagogue. Most of the inscriptions on the book are handwritten by him, including inscriptions of 'Menachem Zion' and several editing. An additonal important curly signature which appears several times is the signature of Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchak Halevi Horowitz. Possibly, he was the brother-in-law of Rabbi Aharon Moshe MiGeza Zvi who was a son-in-law of the Horowitz family. 

The Holy Gaon Rabbi Aharon Moshe "MiGeza Zvi" of Brad [1775-1858] a disciple of the holy Rabbi the Chozeh of Lublin, the Saraf of Strelisk and the Holy Rabbi Moshe Zvi of Svaran. was considered the founder of the Chassidic Yishuv in the Holy Land. Was born in 1775 to his father Rabbi Shaul MiGeza Rashi HaKadosh. was the son-in-law of Rabbi Mordechai Horowitz the publisher of the book "Chibat Yerushalayim". Immigrated to the Land of Israel in 1839 and lived in Jerusalem. 

He headed the Kollel of the Chassidim of Jerusalem. Day and night he used to mourn the destruction of Jerusalem. His Rav the Holy Rabbi the Chozeh of Lublin promised him that he will not be taken from this world before Tikkun HaGilgulim. After his passing, his last will and testament was published and is recalled with awesome respect to this day.

The Holy Gaon Rabbi Yosef Zundel Salant [1786-1865] in his youth was educated by Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin the leading disciple of Hagra. After his marriage, he lived in Salant, where he met Rabbi Yisrael Salanter, who was deeply impressed by him and considered him his leading Rav. After the passing of Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin he followed Rabbi Akiva Eiger, travelling frequently to Posna to acquire Darkei Limud and Avodat Hashem from him. In 1838, he immigrated to the Land of Israel and was appointed Moreh Hora'ah of the Ashkenazic community of Jerusalem and its unofficial leader. His son-in-law Moron the Gaon Rabbi Shmuel Salant was appointed Rav and Abd after him and held the position for dozens of years.
