Description Information
   Flyer, 117:174 mm., on blue papwer, light age staining.
   Declaring an old verse of the Admor of Munkacs, R. Hayyim Eleazar Shapira, that Belz's numerical value (109) equals Sodom (110) with the extra 1 for the leadership of Belz. Belz became embroiled in a bitter quarrel with the zaddik of Munkacs when R. Issachar Dov Rokeah, Admor of Belz moved to Munkacs in 1918. The dispute generated a voluminous exchange of polemics. The current flyer was issued by another group in the 1960's when they quarrelled with Belz.
