Hagadah distributed by the Klausenbeger Rebbe New York 1945. With photographs.
R. Yekusiel Yehuda Halberstam (1905 1994), was a great grandson of the Divrei Chaim of Tzanz. Known from a young age as an Illui coupled with tremendous hasmoda, he was famous from a young age as tremendous Talmid Chochom. He served as Rov in Klausenberg. He personally suffered terribly during the Holocaust, incarcerated in several concentration camps. His wife and eleven children were murdered by the Nazis. Despite all his suffering, immediately following the War, he emerged as a leader in the displaced persons camps in Europe as he created a communal survivors organization called She’aris HaPleitah (“the surviving remnant”), which operated religious schools for boys and girls and yeshivas for young men in 19 different DP camps, as well as a host of religious services.
This rare Hagadah was distributed in the U.S.A and the pictures depict a glimpse of the Rebbe’s activities in the DP camps.
Excellent condition. 33 pages. 19.5 cm.
Opening bid $200
