Historic and emotional Letter from Rabbi Elchonon Wasserman to his brother, Rabbi Eliyahu Tzadok in Jerusalem. In the letter, Rabbi Wasserman laments that the door out of Lithuania "is completely locked" (meaning that no one could escape any longer.)
Surprisingly, he also asks regarding the welfare of the Imrei Emes, the Admor of Gur, and about the bombings in Tel Aviv…
Rabbi Elchonon Wasserman (1875 – 1941) was the Rosh Yeshivah in Baranovitch and a noted Torah scholar in pre-World War II Europe. He was a close student of the Chafetz Chaim and an active member of the Agudath Israel. His teachings are considered fundamentals in the Torah world today.
This letter was written in 1941, just a few months before he was murdered.
