Old News Articles about Wysokie-Litewskie
From Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Hirsh Sagal
This article in Hatzfira No. 119, on page 489, 13.5.89 was written by Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Hirsh Sagal.
His signature appears in bold letters in clipping (1) above: “Avram Tzvi Hirsh Sagal, Dayan and Mo-re Tzedek [or Posek] residing in Visoko D'Lita.”
In this article, not shown here, R' Sagal describes his disagreement with a Rabbi Yaakov Reifmanen about some legal issues. The body of the article is printed in Rashi script, traditionally used for rabbinic commentary.
A later article by R' Sagal, on another topic, this one in Hamelitz (No. 182, 12 August 1894), tells us that he had by then moved on to the town of Kleshtzel.
The first two lines in this concluding snippet show the distinctive semi-cursive Rashi script, followed by a signature line in a regular Hebrew font.
