||Rebbe Meir Ba'al ha-Nes, Kollel Marmarush complains bitterly about the deceit it has experienced at the hands of fellow Jerusalem inhabitants. Apparently they were bequeathed a real estate property and somehow cannot seem to retain it. The flyer reviews the convoluted history of the property, its acquisition, the Din Torahs and court battles, and their current dilemma - where they stand to loose possession once again.
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.
