||Ongoing disputes on the distribution of charity funds on behalf of residents of Eretz Israel. This broadside, by the Kollel Maramures, begs donors to give future funds to the Rebbe of Siget, R. Teitelbaum. The poster proclaims the current system abusive, as the current distributors don't give them a fair share and the little that they do receive is with contempt and humiliation. Forty-two members of the Maramures community and their rabbinical leaders sign the poster.
Beginning with the 18th century a Rebbe Meir Ba'al ha-Nes box was found in almost every Jewish home, and housewives dropped small change into it just before kindling the Sabbath lights. Due to the miraculous deeds connected with the tomb of Rebbe Meir, it was customary to contribute money, candles, or oil for lighting as a specific protection against all kinds of ailments and dangers; it was also done in the hope of finding something lost, of having children, or of driving away evil thoughts. It is clear, however, that the box also symbolized the longing for Erez Israel where the money was distributed through several competative Kollels.
