Long and Rare Response Handwritten by Rabbi Yissachar Shlomo Teichtal, Av Beis Din of Piestany, 1941
Four-page response handwritten by Rabbi Yissachar Shlomo Teichtal, Av Beis Din of Piestany, addressed to Rabbi Reuven Chaim Klein, Av Beis Din of Snina and author of Mateh Reuven.
This rare long letter was sent from Piestany in 1941. Letters from Rabbi Teichtal, and certainly long handwritten responses such as this, are exceedingly rare.
Rabbi Yissachar Shlomo Teichtal (1885 – 1945) was a Rabbi and Rosh Yeshiva of Piestany which is located in West Slovakia. He was respected by the greatest leaders of his generation and discoursed with them in Halacha. Already in his youth he was recognized as a great prodigy and was rabbinically ordained by many Hungarian scholars such as the Arugas Habosem, Rabbi Shmuel Rosenberg of Unsdorf and others. With the onset of World War II he fled to Hungary, but returned to Slovakia mistakenly assuming deportations there had ceased. He was caught and deported to Auschwitz. Among his published works are Responsa Mishneh Sachir, Tov Yigal and Eim Habanim Semeicha.
