The young scholar, Horam Ho’fam Nosson Dovid Rabinowich shlita, has appeared before me with his book, Be’aros Nassam, in which he gathered all his articles published in various journals and monthlies and wants to place them in a book of his novella. Since he has already written a work about the Second Temple Period, which has been promised by Rabbis and established him as a scholar, I, therefore, feel it is a good thing to gather all [the articles] into his own “personal property.”
I hope that this work will be accepted by rabbis and their students. And through this [work] love of Torah learning and God fearingness will grow.
I sign this on the 22nd of MauCheshvam, 5740 in New York.
With this letter I want to introduce the dear young man, a “darling” young man, Fear of God is his treasure, Nosson David Rabinowich. I know him to be unbelievably diligent and crowned with wonderful manners and blessed with excellent capabilities. If he will continue with this diligence, he will become a “very great man” and will be, with the help of God, a legal authority of the Jewish nation. It is a “commandment” to encourage and support him so that our hopes for him to be fulfilled.
Such should be seen and sanctified!
With much respect,
Chief Rabbi of Israel

To anyone interested:
I am publicizing with this the tremendous value of the young prodigy, totally sweet and pleasant, young in years but with great capabilities and with diligence in Torah, Nosson David Rabinowich, who has toiled in Torah both in the USA and in Israel and he’s attained an excellent level of producing original and deep Talmudic novellae.
I have had both long and short discussions with him in our great House of Study, “Kommemiyut Avraham” in various subjects, in Talmud and the Authorities, and have clearly seen that he possesses great depth, has a very logical mind and is an expert and knowledgeable in many Talmudie topics.
With God’s help, if he will continue his diligence at the “doors of Torah”, he will certainly be a great Torah scholar and have much fear of God.
With a blessing to “go up and be successful” and glorify the Torah and the nation.
Chief Rabbi of Israel
