    Overview

    Description
    Consists of one letter written by Rabbi Jeheil Lefkowitz in 1936, in which he accepts a position as principal of a Hebrew school, and one letter by Rabbi Jacob Aaron Lefkowitz, undated, in which he requests financial aid from the Jewish community since he is a teacher and this brings him no income.
