Marriage certificate issued by the Beit Din of the Eida HaChareidit, signed by the Brisker Rav, R. Yitzchak Ze'ev HaLevi Soloveitchik. Jerusalem, 1946.
Marriage certificate. Official printed certificate of the "Council of the Ashkenazic Jewish Community in Jerusalem", filled-in by hand to record the marriage of R. Nachman Feldman to Tzirel Barbash. The certificate is signed by R. " Yitzchak Ze'ev HaLevi Soloveitchik", who served as mesader kiddushin. The wedding took place in Jerusalem, in the Tzion hotel, on 11th Adar I 1946 (see HaRav MiBrisk, I, p. 21 – picture of the Brisker Rav officiating at that wedding).
The signature of the Brisker Rav in the capacity of mesader kiddushin is very rare, since the latter did not generally agree to officiate at weddings in Jerusalem.
R. Yitzchak Ze'ev Soloveitchik – the Brisker Rav (1887-1959), son of R. Chaim HaLevi of Brisk, and grandson of the Beit HaLevi. Already in his father's lifetime, at a young age, he was considered one of the prominent leaders of the generation. In 1920 (at the age of 32), he succeeded his forefathers as rabbi of Brisk, and with his Torah authority he directed all Jewish matters in Brisk and the surroundings. He survived the Holocaust together with some of his children and immigrated to Jerusalem, where he reestablished his yeshiva. His authority was recognized throughout the Torah world, whether in Eretz Israel or abroad. He authored Chiddushei Maran R. Y.Z. HaLevi on the Rambam and the Torah. His orally transmitted novellae were published in the Chiddushei HaGriz series, and until this day, his teachings serve as the basis of profound Torah study in yeshivot, and his views direct the Torah outlook and leadership within Orthodox Jewry.
