Autograph Letter Signed by Gershom Scholem – Jerusalem, 1962

Interesting handwritten letter, sent by Gershom Scholem to one of the opponents of the biblical scholar Moshe David Cassuto. Jerusalem, Purim 5722 [1962].
Presumably, Scholem wrote this letter in response to a previous letter, in which he was asked to interfere and prevent the translation of Cassuto's books into a foreign language. In the letter Scholem rejects this request ("it is impossible to prevent the translation of compositions by a famous scholar who already appeared in a certain series…), and defends Cassuto's right to publish researches according to his views ("this is Cassuto's spirit and this is the way he regards the biblical research…).
Gershom Scholem was a member of the Board of Trustees of Bialik Institute publishing house, which also published Cassuto's book "HaElah Anat…" (Jerusalem, 1951). The book was translated into English and published by Magness publishing house (Jerusalem, 19171); it is possible that this letter refers to that translation.
