A letter handwritten and signed by the Rebbe Rabbi Itzikl Gevirtzman of Pshevorsk.
The letter contains many greetings, including one for wealth and respect and easily earning a good living.
The letter is unique in that the first letters of its first four lines make up the Hebrew word "אהבה" (love).
The Rebbe Rabbi Itzikl Gevirtzman of Pshevorsk (1882-1977) was a descendant of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk, a leading disciple and follower of the Rebbe Rabbi Yechezkel Sheraga of Szeniawa. During the Holocaust, he was exiled to Siberia. After the War, he returned to Poland and from there he moved to France and them to Antwerp, where he was well-known and thousands of Hassidim from all over Europe came to him for a blessing and advice. His son-in-law Rabbi Ya'akov Leiser replaced him as Rebbe since his only son and son-in-law Rabbi Shimon Schif of Klausenburg perished in the Holocaust.
