Description

Rare 2 mils printed matter rate applied to The Union of Religious Writers weekly paper "BaMishor" ('In the Field') using "postage paid" postmark (Sacher E15 - 4 months after his latest recorded date of 17 AU 43), from JERUSALEM to TEL AVIV 26 JA 44. Sent to a "Sh. Ch. Kook" - probably Rabbi Shlomo Kook (1929-1971), a nephew of Rabbi Avraham Yitzhak HaCohen Kook, who also contributed articles to this paper (including this edition) and redirected to his post office box (290). Complete newspaper (8 pages), with light fold at center; in excellent condition; size: 23.05 x 29.6cm. For whatever reason, the mailing of this publication was subsequently charged the 3m rate in 1946, perhaps having lost its authorization for the reduced rate with the General Post Office when re-titled & published without the auspicies of the Union of Religious Writers (see 3rd image).
