   Letter by R. Haim M. Elyachar (Chief Rabbi of Eretz Israel, President of the Jerusalem Rabbinical Council) to Dr. David de Sola Pool dated the 12th of Adar 5680 (1920), regarding an accounting of funds distributed by the Rabbi.

He was one of the initiators of the combined rabbinical committee which was the forerunner of the chief rabbinate of Erez Israel.
