'Imagine the Figure of Our Holy Father Heed to His Final Words with His Last Powers'! Touching Letter of Request Handwritten by the Holy Rabbi Shimon Natan Neta of Lelov

'Imagine the Figure of Our Holy Father Heed to His Final Words with His Last Powers'! Touching Letter of Request Handwritten by the Holy Rabbi Shimon Natan Neta of Lelov  the son ofthe Holy Rabbi David Zvi Shlomo of Lelov, the Tzaddik of Jerusalem, for the marriage of his father's orphan granddaughter, who remained without support, with shocking revelations about the Segulah of giving money to the righteous and connecting to their prayers and explicit blessings handwritten by the Holy Rabbi


The letter which is not dated and since there were several orpahned grandchildren, we do not know exactly regarding whose wedding it was written, appears on the official stationery of 'שמעון נתן נטע בהרה"צ ה"ק רבי דוד צבי שלמה זצוקללה"ה נכד הרצה"ק רבינו משה מלעלוב' The year 192... is also printed on the letter indicating that it was written in the late 1920s after  Rabbi Shimin Natan Neta returned from Krakow, where he had lived for many years. 

In the letter, Rabbi Shimon appeals to the admireres of his fathers' holy dynasty and pleads with them 'Just as G-d desires the prayers of the righteous, so do the righteous desire your Mitzvahs by which their prayers will ascend and work miracles, and now imagine the figure of our holy father heed to his final words with his last powers which he pleaded and promised and I am sure would have pleaded and promised today ... heed to the small waek voice coming from torn heart and without you where shall I go...' At the end of the letter, which is not signed, he explicitly promises: 'I know of your terrible situation, yet be assured that if you hekp us, your situation will improve too and our good will do you good as well'. 


On the back of the leaf, the handwritten signature of his son the Holy Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchak Biderman, the brother of the Holy Rabbi Moshe Mordechai, who was not an Admor, yet was admired by the Tzaddikim and Hassidim of Lelov and Kerlin. 


[1] official stationery. 21X13 cm. written on one of its sides and signed on its other by the son the Holy Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchak. Some wear to the upper margins. Some folds. Good-very good condition.
