(Grand Rebbe of Satmar, 1887-1979). PERSONAL SILVER KIDDUSH CUP. Strapped belt above and below. Hallmarks on reverse: Height 4 and 1/4 inches (11 cm).


WITH CERTIFICATE OF ATTESTATION signed by Tziporah (Corinne) Moskovits, 24th Tammuz 2014, Miami, Florida. “…This Kos shel Berach was utilized by the [Rebbe] during the time [we were] privileged to host him during the winter months for approximately 23 years.”

SILVER KIDDISH BECHER USED BY THE ADMOR RABBI YOEL OF SATMAR.


PROVENANCE: During the 1960’s and 1970’s the Satmar Rebbe spent the winter months in Miami. There, he resided in the home of a well-to-do follower and former Sigheter, Mr. Al (Yehoshua Heschel) Moskovits (d. 1999) and his wife, Mrs. Corinne (Tziporah) Moskovits. The becher was later gifted by the Moskovits’s to their nephew, the late Dr. David Mehler.


Throughout the ages, the great Chassidic Masters yearned to inherit the personal belongings of prior Tzaddikim. This is attributed to the B’aal Shem Tov, as recorded by his grandson, the Degel Machaneh Ephraim: “I heard from my grandfather… All that a man owns… even his personal possessions… are all sparks that draw from the root of his soul…”
