Hassidic Sefer Segulah for preventing fire and pests. First edition! Ma'amar Mordechai on the Torah and Holidays by the Holy Rabbi Mordechai Leitner of Drohovich. First edition. Lemberg, [1877].


The Sefer was approbated by Gedolei HaDor, the Holy Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac of Zidichov praises it and describes the love of his uncle and Rav Rabbi Zvi Hirsch of Zidichov who said of him "together we shall share a secret". There is also a wonderful approbation by the Holy Rabbi of Komorna, of Kosov, the Yitav lev. The hOly Rabbi Avraham Yaakov of Sadigura and the Holy rabbi David Moshe of Chertkov.

At the beginning of the book, a lengthy introduction by the author's son who notes that the Sefer is known as a Segulah and protection against fire and other Marin Bishin and the manuscript of the Sefer has already saved from a fire. In the body ofthe book, Kabbalistic matters between Rabbi Zvi Hirsch of Zidichov and the author, Kabbalistic commentary on the Or HaChaim Hakadosh on Parashat Acharei Mot.

For dozens of years he was the leader of a large community of Hassidim in Drohovich.
