Detail Description

Letter with new year blessings by R. Shemaryahu Gurary, also known by his Hebrew initials as The Rashag, (1898-1989) was an Orthodox rabbi belonging to the Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic movement. His father was R. Menachem Mendel Gurary. He married Chana Gurary, the older daughter of R. Yosef Yitzchok, and was thus the brother-in-law of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe (whose wife Chaya Mushka Schneerson was also the daughter of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok). He worked with his father-in-law in communal service in both Russia and Poland and then arrived in the U.S. in 1940, where he continued this work until his death.
