Brandeis writes to Zionist Elisha Friedman discussing the importance of Spanish philosopher Yehuda Halevi's collection of poems entitled "The Journey to Zion"

    Louis Brandeis Autograph Letter Signed "Louis Brandeis ", one page, 6" x 7", Washington, D.C., November 15, 1939, to Elisha Friedman. In full: "I was sorry not to be able to see you on the 13th and to thank you orally for your thoughtful greeting. We should gain much if all members of the Publication Society could be made to read the poems collected under 'The Journey to Zion', and could understand why Jehuda Halevi wanted it. " Friedman was an active member of the Zionist movement and secretary of the University Zionist Society of New York. Yehuda Halevi was a Spanish Jewish philosopher and a poet born in 1075 in Tudela, Navarre, Spain. Halevi's works find joy in the thought of the "return"of his people to the Promised Land. He believed that perfect Jewish life was possible only in the Land of Israel. Fine.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
