Special version of "El Male Rachamim" prayer that was written after the death of Binyamin Ze'ev Herzl, to whom the prayer refers as "the Head of Zionists, Our Teacher, Reb Binyamin Ze'ev son of Reb Ya'akov, who is called Dr. Theodor Herzl".
This prayer was most likely written and said after Herzl's death in 1904.
The anonymous writer, who was most likely a God-fearing Jew, praises Herzl: "for seeking the good of his people … he faced kings and ministers for returning Israel to Zion".
The prayer is written in ink, in nice, square handwriting. A single word was added in pencil.
Unique historical item.
Size: 11X18 cm.
Condition: Very Good. The page is glued to cardboard. Folding marks.
