Noam Elimelech, the Admo"r of Tosh's Personal Copy
Noam Elimelech, New York, 1956. The most important Chassidic segulah book. Copy that belonged to the Admo"r Rabbi Meshulim Feish Segal of Tosh, from which he would study in public each and every Shabbat!
The book bears several of the Admo"r's owner's stamps. Additionally, his disciple, Rabbi Moshe Eliezer Pfeffer, rabbi of the Selish-Chertkov community in Bnei Brak, writes that the copy before us was used by his teacher and rabbi, the Admo"r of Tosh, ztzllh"h, and that he studied from it every Shabbat, at the tisch on Shabbat nights and at the tisch during Shabbat day, over an extended period.
As is known, Chassidic leaders were particular to study from Noam Elimelech every Shabbat. In Tosh Chassidism, there is even a specific custom to study from Noam Elimelech. The first Admo"r of Tosh, Rabbi Meshulim Feish Segal (I), traveled towards his later years to the grave site of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk to pray for a male child. When his son was born, he called him "Elimelech, " and he nicknamed him, "The Rebbe Rabbi Elimelech."
Refer to the Hebrew text for a brief biography of Rabbi Meshulim Feish Segal Lowy.
Signed authorization from his disciple Rabbi Moshe Eliezer Pfeffer, rabbi of Selish-Chertkov Bnei Brak, included, confirming that this copy before us was the Admo"r's personal copy.
[9], 109, [5] leaves. 26 cm; fine condition. Aging stains. Owner's notations and supplements. Original binding, renewed spine.
