I have been approached by my dear friend, the honored Rabbi Dovid Yehuda Zussman (Sofer) shlit'a, who has by now spent a number of years elucidating the Torah of the tzaddik, his ancestor, the rav and gaon Rabbi Yeshaya Silberstein ztz'l Av Beis Din of Veitzen, and author of the renowned sefer, Masei L'Melech. Rabbi Yeshaya Silberstein's ztz'l great holiness and mastery of Torah was legendary among his students and fellow compatriots. He was of those who decree and Heaven fulfills. With Hashem's help Rabbi Dovid Yehuda has merited to amass much of Rabbi Yeshaya's novellae in halachah, agada, and sugyos of Shas and responsa. It is both a mitzvah and a tremendous privilege to participate in this great project, thereby being among those who positively influence the community. May the merit of the great, holy author ztz'l stand by all those who assist, so that they be blessed with all that is good. They should be granted children, long life, abundant sustenance, heavenly assistance and we should all merit the redemption of the Jewish people with the coming of Moshiach. Amen. And with this I come to sign, Yochanan (Segal) Wosner
