   Letter by R. Judah Aryeh Leib b. Jacob Perlow (1888-1961), Admor of Novominsk/New York. He was ordained by R. Hayyim Soloveichik of Brest-Litovsk, R. Yoav Joshua of Kinsk, and R. Moses Nahum Yerushalimsky of Kielce. He married his cousin Esther Reizel, the daughter of R. David Twersky of Makarov.
