Detail Description

Response of the “Sephardic” (liberal elements of the [Neolog] community) to the opposition of heads of the Orthodox community in Sighet. The two communities issued strong and bitter denunciations of their opponents over their contrasting religious positions. Et le-Daber begins that the hearts of community in Sighet, which had been called a righteous community from the time that it was founded, is now divided. For three years they have refrained from responding to those who hate peace and have referred to us odiously and slandered us in the eyes of Israel. It states that the tree of silence bears fruit of peace. It continues that after three years the eyes of the community look for a response. After this introduction Et le-Daber is comprised of correspondence related to and bemoaning the dispute from prominent rabbis, namely R. Ezekiel Shraga Halberstam (three entries), R. Samuel Engel, R. Zevi Hirsch Orenstein, R. Issachar ha-Levi Horwitz, R. Isaac Aaron Etinga, and R. Isaac Shelkish

(בירח מנחם-[אב] התרמ"ו קהל ספרדים דק"ק סיגעט).
