Description

Description: Brandeis writes, in this autograph letter signed, to Rehabiah Lewina Epstein who was Director of the Tel Aviv Bureau of the American Economic Committee for Palestine. In full: “Re yours of 19th my thanks for sending the informative report. I hope it will not be long before Palestine receives its Savings Bank”.

Louis Dembitz Brandeis (1856-1941) was associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court from 1916 to 1939. He is known particularly for championing freedom of speech and the right to privacy. Throughout the latter part of his life he was extremely involved with the American Zionist movement and, not surprisingly, with the recipient of this letter and the organization in which he was involved.
