(AMERICAN JUDAICA).
Rabbi Abraham Eliezer Alperstein. Autograph Letter Signed, written in Hebrew to Rabbi Jacob Alperin of Duluth, Minnesota.

One page. 12mo.
St. Paul, Minnesota: 18th Kislev 1900
ᴥ Rabbi Alperstein (1853-1917) was a prominent rabbi in Lithuania before immigrating to the United States, where he occupied several pulpits. He is notable for having published, in his commentary to Massekhet Bikkurim, Harel (Chicago, 1890) the first part of the Talmud ever to be published in the United States. He spent a brief period in St. Paul, and this letter is from that time. After returning to New York, he became a Talmud instructor in the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, which was for a time, housed in his synagogue.
