Description
   Addressed to his daughter and son-in-law, Rabbi Ch. Ginzburg in Los Angeles.

Letter by R. Hanoh Henoh Dov b. R. Abraham Joshua Heschel Twersky (1886-1971) was the son of the Radimisel-Maliner Rebbe. R. Twersky, a descendent of prominent Hasidic Rebbes, filled his father's position in Malin after his passing. In 1924 he immigrated to Chicago where he led a large congregation with many Hasidim for over 40 years. He made Aliah in 1968 and passed on in 1971. A noted scholar, he published many rabbinic and Hasidic works in the United States and Israel.
