Collection of autograph letters signed by R. Moshe Ya'ir Weinstock, with long inscriptions and notations handwritten and signed by the recipient of the letters, R. "Yuda Ze'ev" Leibowitz. Jerusalem, 1968-1977.
Letters and written leaves, kabbalistic ideas, commentaries on the Zohar and on kabbalistic matters, Chassidic essays and Torah thoughts. Two letters contain interesting memoirs about the Satmar Rebbe with stories and Torah teachings in his name, from the time he visited Jerusalem in "c. 1931", at the time he was still Rabbi of Carei (including details of the negotiations regarding his appointment as Ra'avad of the Eda HaCharedit in Jerusalem).

Known for his wondrous deeds and for his lofty piety.
