Rabin, Yitzak (1922-1955) Israeli soldier, statesman and Prime Minister (1974-1977 and 1992-1995); assassinated in 1995. Typed Letter Signed as Minister of Defense, in Hebrew, Hakiryah, 9 Sivan, May 29, 1985, one page, quarto. To Tuvia Friedman at The Institute of Documentation in Haifa, in response to an inquiry about the chief cantor in the army. In part: "…I requested the comments of the Army's chief Rabbi and I quote part of his reply: The army's Chief Chazan told me that he had indeed met Mr. Cherney, but according to him he had not spoken to him about receiving a job of Chazan in the U.S….all his talks with Mr. Cherney concerned only Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, at which occasions the Army's Chief Chazan has been praying in the U.S. or Canada for many years. From his words it is clear that his mention of funerals is only an expression of his hard feelings during a funeral, and is no indication of his wish to resign from his position…." With translation. File notation; staple and punch holes, else Very Good.
Estimated Value $300 - 400.
