Detail Description

Responsa by R. Zevi Elimelekh Shapira (1841-1924), Admor of Blazova. R. Zevi Elimelekh Shapira was the son of R. David Shapira of Dynov (Tzemah David, 1822-74) and a student of R. Chaim Halberstam of Sanz. From a young age, he was renowned for his spectacular knowledge of the revealed Torah but less known is the fact that he also mastered the difficult Kabbalistic book Brit Kehunat Olam and others. He married the daughter of R. Moses of Roswadof. At the age of 28, he served as Rabbi of Rybotycze and traveled to greet his teacher, the Divrei Chaim who received him with royal honor and sat him at the head of the table. In the middle of the meal, the Divrei Chaim honored R. Zvi Elimelech and requested that he deliver a Torah discourse. Of course, R. Zvi Elimelech declined to speak in the presence of his revered rebbe and teacher. Upon his leaving, R. Chaim of Sanz accompanied R. Zvi Elimelech until the street and requested that his disciple pray for him (Encyclopedia L'Chassidut, Vol. 3 p. 582).. During World War I he resided in Budapest, then Przemysl, finally returning to Blazova, where he remained for the rest of his life. R. Shapira was renowned for for his prodigious memory and for his melodious voice, serving as reader on the Yamim Noraim. Nevertheless, he prayed quietly, avoiding flamboyancy. R. Shapira promulgated the concept of R. Isaac of Berdichev about collective responsibility and mutualism, that everyone should consider himself as a vital link in the chain of Judaism. After WWI, he served as Rebbe of Przemyśl and Rzeszów. His hasidic homilies on the Torah were published in Cracow (1925-28).
