A letter of warning handwritten by Rabbi Meshulam Zusia of Zhinkov, son of Rabbi Yitzchak Meir of Zhinkov and grandson of the Ohev Yisrael of Apta
The letter is a warning to a father to pity his daughter "and give her what is imposed upon him according to the Torah – I am sure that he will give room for my words… God will deliver him with salvation and mercy soon."
Rabbi Meshulam Zusia begins the letter with the words, "I am here to urge him for his good," insinuating that by not listening to him, he would be punished.
Rabbi Meshulam Zusia (1813 – 1864) was the son of Rabbi Yitzchak Meir of Zhinkov and grandson of the Ohev Yisrael of Apta. He succeeded his father as the Admor of Zhinkov with followers numbering in the thousands. He brought his grandfather's sefer, Ohev Yisrael, to print, along with his own introduction.
