In a letter authored by Mirrer Rosh Yeshiva Harav Nochum Partzovitz and currently being auctioned off he asks to “be mentioned by the Lubavitcher Rebbe for a complete recovery.”

The letter is addressed to Rabbi Y. M. Leizerson. After wishing R. Leizerson a Mazel Tov and adding warm brochos, R. Nochum gives an update on his illness before requesting that “when you visit K’vod Kedushas Admor M’Lubavitch Shlita, please mention Nochum ben Keysha for a complete recovery”. Following that he goes into a brief Talmudic discussion and ends with warm blessings.

R. Nochum Partzovitz (1923-1986), was born in Trok and was one of the most prominent students of both R. Boruch Ber Leibowitz, R. Elchonon Wasserman and of Yeshivas Mir. During the war he traveled with the Mir Yeshiva to Shanghai. In 1951, he married the daughter of the Mirrer Rosh Yeshiva R. Chaim Shmuelevitz.

In 1952, he was appointed as a Rosh Yeshiva, a position in which he served until his passing. He taught thousands of students and was one of the most prominent Roshei Yeshiva of his time. He was succeeded by his son-in-law, the renowned R. Osher Arieli.
