Handwritten letter and halakhic ruling by Rabbi Yaakov ben Tzur (Yavetz)

Rabbinical court ruling from late 1724. Two and a half pages (numbered). About 50 lines, with the curled signature of the Gaon Rabbi Yavetz
Yavetz was an exemplary figure. A true Torah giant, tzaddik and kabbalist who was also involved in practical matters. He adjudicated in rabbinical court and was a gifted author who wrote many important liturgical poems. Yavetz was among the rabbis who wrote approbations for the book Chafetz Hashem by the Ohr Chaim
