Small Sefer Torah that had belonged to the holy Rav Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Pershischa (Przysucha).


A most pedigreed Sefer Torah that had belonged to the holy Rav Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Pershischa and was kept at Beis HaChassidim of the Gur Chassidim on Fireberg St. in Tel Aviv.  Beis HaChassidim Shtibel 'Achad HaAm-Fireberg' has been standing for nearly a century and is where great rabbis and important Chassidim had prayed.


The Sefer Torah was donated in 1941 by the Rabbinic the Chassid the Naggid R. Sholom Shachneh ben R. David Halevi, who had inherited the Sefer generation after generation up to the renowned holy Rav Rabbi Bunim Simcha of Pershischa. 


The holy Rav the Beis Yisroel of Gur, when he came to Tel Aviv, was also called up to the reading of this pedigreed Sefer Torah.


The year of 1949 was the one and only year in which the holy Rav Rabbi Aharon of Belz stayed in Tel Aviv on Sukkos and Simchas Torah. In that special year, a special delegation of the most important worshippers of the Shtibel suggested that the Tzaddik of Belz conduct the Hakafos and holy Avodah with this important and pedigreed  Sefer Torah. The Rabbi confirmed with his pure eyes that indeed this Sefer Torah was truly attributed to the holy Rav Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Pershischa and indeed, the Sefer was close to Aron HaKodesh during the entire Hakafos.


Size: 42 lines written in small excellent script. 18 cm. the height of the vellum, including the margins. The height of the entire Sefer Torah is 33 cm. The lower Atzei Chaim are missing.  

The Sefer is not sold as Kosher; however, expert Sofrei Setam noted that is can easily be repaired. Repairing and proofreading the Sefer will render it Kosher for reading. 


Additional details and confirmations will be delivered to those interested.
