Detail Description

Letter by  R. Meir Brandsdorfer (1934 - 2009) was a member of the Rabbinical Court of the Edah HaChareidis, the Haredi Ashkenazi community in Jerusalem, and was in charge of their Kashrut operations, especially matters of Shechita. He was born in Antwerp, Belgium to his parents, Shlomo and Frumit. After surviving World War II while hiding out in France, he moved to Erez Israel together with his family. He became the rabbinical leader of the Toldos Aharon Hasidic movement, based in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Meah Shearim. When Toldos Aharon's previous rebbe died, he joined the split-off group named Toldos Avraham Yitzchok. He was highly respected and eulogized by both groups upon his death. His responsa have been published under the title Knei Bosem.
