Tehillim with the Ben Beiti commentary, by the Komarno Rebbe Eliezer Zvi Safrin [reprint of the Jerusalem 1968 edition]. Special edition of the Union of Tosher Chassidim and Students in the US, printed in honor of the Shabbat-convention on Shabbat Shira.
The personal copy of Tosh-Canada Rebbe. Embossed on the binding: "Meshulem Feish Segal Lowy". On a page preceding the title page is a handwritten dedication: "Gift to my dear friend Mordechai son of Yimne - blessing and much success" [the last three words were written in a different handwritten, apparently the handwriting of the Rebbe himself]. Stamp of the Rebbe's assistant (Mashbak), R. "Elimelech Zusman Sofer - Mashbak of our holy Rebbe - Beit HaLevi Kiryat Tosh Canada". Chapters 40 and 102 have pencil highlights, alluding to the name of the Ramchal and highlighting Verse 8 of Chapter 40, referring to a basic tenet of the Tosh leadership - performing G-d's will with supreme devotion.
The Tosher Rebbe, R. Meshulam Feish Segal Lőwy (1922-2015), son of R. Mordechai of Demecser, grandson of R. Meshulam Feish Lőwy of Tosh (the first), arrived in Montreal, Canada in 1951 and in 1963, he established the Beit HaLevi enclave of Tosh Chassidism. He was celebrated for his long prayers and devout conduct serving G-d with incredible devotion. Many flocked to spend Shabbat in his presence, among them some of the leading Chassidic figures in the US and Canada. Some of his Torah thoughts were printed in the series of the Avodat Avodah books.
[4], 7-43 pages; [1], 131, [2] leaves. 17.5 cm. Good condition. Signs of heavy wear. Rubbed fabric binding. A picture of the rebbe is pasted on the last page: 12.5X17.5 cm.
