Rav Elyashiv's Army Recruitment Certificate Being Auctioned

I guess this was way before Rav Shmuel Auerbach's royal decree, that Yeshivah Boys shouldn't even register for the draft! 

Shortly before the establishment of the State of Israel, a law for compulsory recruitment was enacted alongside the תורה אומנותו Law, which granted yeshivah students exemption from military service and other exemptions due to social reasons. Rebbe Elyashiv reported on the 24th of November 1948, in Jerusalem Conscription Center and received a service exemption.

The certificate (pictured above) he was issued includes personal information such as his year of birth, height, marital status, children, address, occupation, job location and reason for his exemption. It is complete with a photo of him at age 38 and boasts his full signature.

The opening bid: $5,000.00
Estimate: $7,000.00 - $10,000.00
Auction will take place Tuesday Feb 19, 2019
