   The heading on all three posters states that this is from the leaders of the generation that are in Galicia about the group that wants to spread Torah and fear of Heaven known as "Zerizim" [those who hurry to perform mitzvot].

1. The page is divided into two columns. The one on the right is a letter from the Boyaner Rebbe of Krakow dated the 4th day of Parashat Toldot 5698 [Fall, 1937]. The letter commends the group of young men who formed the Zerizim and states that they want to spread Torah by forming small Yeshivot in many towns and to have influence over the students in those Yeshivot. The Rebbe continues that he encourages support of this group and it is signed Moshe ben Sholom Yosef.

The column on the left contains two short letters. The first, from R. Nahum Weidenfeld of Dombrova (Poland) also commending the Zerizim, and dated the 3rd day of Parashat VaYetze 5698 (Fall, 1937). The final letter is from R. Dovid Zevi Zehmaz also encouraging everyone to support the Zerizim. It is not dated.

2. Similiar in content to the previous, contains a letter by the Admor of Boyan, R. Abraham Jacob b. Isaac Friedman, in support of the organization.

3. Similiar in content to the previous, contains a letter by the Admor of Chorkov, R. Nahum Mordecai b. Israel Twersky, in support of the organization.
