  35. Buber, Martin. PIRKE HASIDUT: MIVHAR ME-“OR HA-GANUZ”. Jerusalem: Shoken, 1957. Softcover, 12mo, 115 pages, 17 cm. In Hebrew. Series: Sifre mofet le-vate-sefer; mis. 22; Variation: Sifre mofet le-vate-sefer; mis. 22. SUBJECT (S) : Hasidim -- Legends. Jewish legends. Buber (1878-1965) was a “philosopher and theologian, Zionist thinker and leader. Born in Vienna, Buber as a child lived in Lemberg with his grandfather Solomon Buber, the noted Midrash scholar. From 1896 he studied at the universities of Vienna, Leipzig, and Zurich, and finally at the University of Berlin, where he was a pupil of the philosophers Wilhelm Dilthey and Georg Simmel. Having joined the Zionist movement in 1898, he was a delegate to the Third Zionist Congress in 1899 where he spoke on behalf of the Propaganda Committee. In this speech, which bore the influence of modern Hebrew and Yiddish writers, notably of Ahad Ha-Am, Buber emphasized the importance of education as opposed to a program of propaganda. In 1901 he was appointed editor of the central weekly organ of the Zionist movement, Die Welt, in which he emphasized the need for a new Jewish cultural creativity. This emphasis on cultural rather than political activity led, at the Fifth Zionist Congress in 1901, to the formation of the Zionist Democratic Fraction which stood in opposition to Herzl. Buber, a member of this faction, resigned before the Congress as editor of Die Welt. Together with his friends, he founded the Juedischer Verlag in Berlin, which went on to publish books of literary quality. At the age of 26 Buber took up the study of Hasidism. At first his interest was essentially aesthetic. After attempting to translate the tales of Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav into German, he decided to retell them in German in the form of a free adaptation. Thus originated Die Geschichten des Rabbi Nachman and Die Legende des Baalschem. Later Buber’s interest turned from the aesthetic aspect of Hasidism to its content. Deeply stirred by the religious message of Hasidism, he considered it his duty to convey that message to the world. Among the books he later wrote on Hasidism are Gog u-Magog, Or ha-Ganuz, and Pardes ha-Hasidut” (Bergman and Meir in EJ, 2007) . OCLC lists 12 copies worldwide. Hinge repair. Chipped cover corners.

Tel-Aviv: Pe’er Ha-Sefer, 1969. Hardcover, 8vo, 2 volumes, facsims. , 25 cm. In Hebrew. SUBJECT(S) : Descriptor: Hasidism. Named Person: Dov Baer, of Mezhirech, d. 1772. Title Subject: Bible. O.

Dov Baer(d. 1772) was “one of the earliest and most important leaders of Hasidism. As a youth, Dov Baer received a traditional religious education in the yeshivah of R. Jacob Joshua Falk , author of Penei Yehoshu’a. He taught in Torchin and later became preacher in Korets and Rovno. Subsequently he moved to Mezhirech in Volhynia, which became the center of the Hasidic movement, and toward the end of his life he moved to Annopol (Hanipol) . An erudite talmudic scholar, Dov Baer also made a profound study of Kabbalah, adopting the system of Lurianic Kabbalah and an ascetic way of life. The mortifications to which he subjected himself eventually made him ill; he contracted a disease which affected his legs and he became bedridden. Tradition relates that he sought a cure from Israel b. Eliezer (the Ba’al Shem Tov) , the originator of modern Hasidism, whose reputation as a healer was widespread, and Dov Baer became one of his foremost disciples. After the death of the Ba’al Shem Tov in 1760, Dov Baer was recognized as his successor to leadership of the movement... The authority of Dov Baer as the main proponent of Hasidism was apparently only recognized in 1766, and even then there were a few notable exceptions such as Phinehas of Korets. Unlike his predecessor, Dov Baer was not a man of the people, and his illness made it difficult for him to associate with his disciples. He possessed charismatic qualities, however, and was an eloquent preacher and teacher. Dov Baer was highly esteemed by his disciples, who not only derived spiritual sustenance from his teachings and utterances but also divined an inner significance in his daily life and actions” (Liebes in EJ 2010) .

Includes bibliographical references on pages 214-221 and indexes. Other Titles: Or Elimelekh. Elimelech of Lyzhansk (1717-1787) was a “popular zaddik of the third generation of ? Asidim and one of the founders of Hasidism in Galicia. Elimelech was a disciple of Dov Baer the Maggid of Mezhirech and is considered the theoretician and creator of “practical zaddikism. ” Elimelech and his brother Zusya of Hanipol traveled from village to village, according to the principle of nedudei galut, i. E. , their travels, symbolically expressing their identification with the wanderings of the shekhinah. According to a later interpretation, the purpose of their wanderings was the promotion of repentance. After the death of Dov Baer, Elimelech settled in Lyzhansk, Galicia, which as a result became an important ? Asidic center. He headed a court financed by pidyonot, i. E. , a system of internal taxes paid to the zaddik usually accompanied by kvitlakh, slips on which the Hasidim wrote their spiritual and material problems for the zaddik to solve. Letters published under his name show his attitude toward the quarrels between the Hasidim and the Mitnaggedim. Elimelech is also mentioned in the indictments against the Hasidim in Sefer ha-Vikku’ah and in Zemir Arizim. In his letters, he defends himself against the objections of the Mitnaggedim to Hasidim praying according to the Sephardi ritual. Elimelech cited as proof Joseph Caro and even Moses Isserles, who according to him established the Ashkenazi ritual for the general community, but not for the pious who had attained a higher plane of faith. Elimelech was ascetic, but he did not regard asceticism as the way of life for all. According to him, asceticism corresponds to the “breaking of the vessels” in Lurianic Kabbalah, whose purpose is tikkun. However, it is not the only path to tikkun; for “one zaddik reaches tikkun through eating and another, through asceticism” (Liebes in EJ, 2007) . OCLC lists 7 copies worldwide. Very good condition.

Heschel, Isaac Meir, d. 1855. Heschel, Meshullam Zussia, d. 1886. Other Titles: Title on title page verso: Letters of the “Ohev Yisroel”. Heschel (died 1825) was a “Polish Hasidic Zaddik , known as “the Rabbi of Apta. ” He was the disciple of Elimelech of Lyzhansk and possibly also of the maggid Jehiel Michel of Zloczow. He served as rabbi of the communities of Kolbuszowa Apta from 1809 to 1813 and Jassy, in 1813–14 settling in Medzibozh, where he lived until his death. Abraham strongly opposed the maskilim in Brody for disseminating what he considered heretical ideas among Russian Jewry. Following the discriminatory legislation passed by Czar Alexander I, depriving Jewish contractors and taverners of their livelihood, Abraham and Isaac of Radzivilow ordered a public fast. As president of the Volhynian kolel, he was active in fundraising for the community in Eretz Israel. Acknowledged as an authority by many zaddikim in his old age, Abraham was called upon to excommunicate deviationists in the controversy between the Bratslav and Przysucha Hasidim, and did his best to promote unity and peace in the hasidic camp. Abraham left instructions that his sole epitaph should be Ohev Yisrael, a description by which he is remembered among the Hasidim. The problems of Jewish leadership and care for his people exercised his imagination, and he would recount fantastic “reminiscences” about the events he said that he had witnessed in former incarnations as high priest, a king of Israel, nasi, and exilarch. His revelations were regarded by the Hasidim as mysteries of the type experienced by Rabbah b. Bar Hana. A religious ecstatic, he delivered homilies on Sabbaths and festivals emphasizing love of the Creator and the importance of cleaving to Him. He exerted a wide popular influence. His adherents believed that the violent gestures with which he accompanied the sermons denoted hitpashetut ha-gashmiyyut. One of Abraham Joshua Heschel’s contemporaries recounts that “in the midst of the meal, when the spirit was upon him, he cried out in a loud and dolorous voice and gesticulated; his head fell back almost to his heels, and all the people who sat round the sacred table… trembled and feared… and he started to relate secrets of the Torah and hidden mysteries; he opened his saintly mouth and spoke with great fervor; his face was [like] a torch, he raised his voice in ecstasy. ” Nevertheless, Abraham Joshua Heschel concentrated on the system of practical Zaddikism and held that the zaddik “through his wisdom lifts up Israel to bind them to heaven and to bring prosperity, blessing, and life from the source of blessings. ” His works include Torat Emet and Ohev Yisrael. Abraham’s son Isaac Meir succeeded his father as zaddik of Medzibozh, later moving to nearby Zinkov. His grandson Meshullam Zussia was also zaddik in Zinkov; he edited his grandfather’s sermons, Ohev Yisrael. His descendants continued to be revered as zaddikim in various places in Podolia” (Rubinstein in EJ, 2007) . OCLC lists 20 copies worldwide. Light chipping to edges of dust jacket.

Heschel wrote books and studies on medieval Jewish philosophy – on Saadiah Gaon, Solomon ibn Gabirol, Maimonides, and Don Isaac Abrabanel – as well as on Hasidism.

In Hebrew. Edition: Mahad 2. Series: Antologya le-mikso’ot ha-sifrut ha-Yisre’elit. SUBJECT(S) : Hasidim -- Biography. Includes bibliographical references. Kahana (1874-1946) was a “biblical scholar and historian. Kahana, who was born in Skomorochy, Russia, was self-educated and started writing on Jewish subjects at an early date. In 1923 he emigrated to Palestine where he engaged in teaching and also served as librarian at the Sha’ar Zion library in Tel Aviv. From 1903 onward, he edited the Hebrew Bible, with a critical commentary and introductions (Perush Madda’i) , he himself being responsible for Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Ezra, and Nehemiah. The project, with which H. P. Chajes, A. Kaminka, S. Krauss, F. Perles, M. L. Margolis, and others were associated, was, however, not completed. Kahana also edited the two-volume Apocrypha, which went through many reprints. He translated part of the Greek text into Hebrew, added commentary and introductions to each book, and took care of a considerable number of the apocryphal and pseudepigraphical books himself. Kahana wrote the introduction to D. Ginzburg’s edition of the Mantua version of Josippon. His historical writings include: Korot ha-Yehudim be-Roma based on the works of A. Berliner and that of H. Vogelstein and P. Rieger; a biography in Hebrew of M. H. Luzzatto; an edition of Leone de Modena’s autobiography; and an edition of the travel diary of David Reuveni . Kahana also published a two-volume historical anthology, Sifrut ha-Historyah ha-Yisre’elit, and an anthology on ? Asidism, Sefer ha-Hasidut. His interest in the hasidic movement is also shown by his biography of Israel b. Eliezer Ba’al Shem Tov and his edition of Sippurei Ma’asiyyot shel R. Nahman mi-Bratslav. Kahana’s contribution to linguistics consisted of a Hebrew grammar, a translation into Hebrew of S. D. Luzzatto’s grammar, and a Russian-Hebrew dictionary” (Berenbaum and Skolnik in EJ, 2007) .

Series: Sifriyat ha-peles; Variation: Sifriyat ha-peles. Contents: helek 1. Torah va-? Avodah. SUBJECT(S) : Hasidim -- Legends. Hasidism. Levin (1844-1925) was a “Hebrew socialist poet and writer and one of the first members of Hovevei Zion. He received an Orthodox education at home but studied secular subjects and became completely estranged from his former environment. In 1870 he was employed as tutor and secretary by the Brodskis, the Jewish sugar magnates of Kiev, and worked for them until the Soviet regime closed the enterprise in 1918. In 1871 he published his first collection of poetry, Siftei Renanot, which was well received by the Hebrew reading public. His socialist views stemmed from reading Russian radical and socialist literature and observing the relations between his employers, the Brodskis, and their employees. He joined the circle of A. S. Liebermann and helped him publish his newspaper, Ha-Emet. Most of his poems which appeared from 1874 to 1880 in Ha-ShaHar dealt with social problems and sharply criticized the existing order and the regime. His poems, actually essays in rhyme, were minor and innovative only in that they were the first to introduce socialist themes into Hebrew literature and poetry. Levin’s interest in problems of Jewish life increased when Russian nationalism and anti-semitism grew stronger. The pogroms in 1881 brought a decisive change in Levin's ideas; he drew even further from the socialist circles and devoted himself to the problems of Jewish life. He joined Hovevei Zion, was one of the founders of this pre-Zionist movement in Kiev, and through letters and articles propagandized for the settlement of Erez Israel. He translated Disraeli's Tancred, which visualizes the return of the Jews to their land. Because of this activity he had to leave Kiev and settle in the small town of Tomashpol where he worked for Brodski and continued with his literary work. Living in remote Tomashpol had an adverse effect on Levin. Out of touch with his contemporaries, he did not progress with the mainstream of Hebrew poetry and literature. In 1910, the jubilee of his literary work, he published his memoirs, Zikkaron ba-Sefer, including a chronological list of his writings. With the onset of the Russian Revolution Levin returned to Kiev, where he spent his last years in poverty and loneliness. A selection of his memoirs, articles, and poems was published in 1968 as Zikhronot ve-Hegyonot” (Slutsky in EJ, 2007) . OCLC lists 2 copies worldwide (Yale, U of Maryland) .

SUBJECT(S): Jewish sermons, Hebrew. Hasidism. Menahem Mendel, of Vitebsk. Menahem Mendel, of Vitebsk. Correspondence. Bible. O. T. Pentateuch -- Sermons. Mendel (1730-1788) was a “hasidic leader active in Belorussia, Lithuania, and Erez Israel. He was a disciple of Dov Baer the Maggid of Mezhirech, and headed a congregation in Minsk during the lifetime of his teacher; in Zemir Arizim ve-Harvot ? Urim, a pamphlet written by one of the Mitnaggedim, he is mentioned by the name of Mendel of Minsk. When the first wave of opposition to Hasidism erupted, he visited Vilna on two occasions – on the second occasion, accompanied by his disciple Shneur Zalman of Lyady and attempted to meet Elijah b. Solomon the Gaon of Vilna in order to point out to him the merits of Hasidism, but the Gaon refused to receive him and “he closed the door upon us twice. ” Hasidic tradition also regards him as one of the leading spokesmen at the meeting which was convened in Rovno in the house of Dov Baer after the imposition of the ? Erem on the ? Asidim in 1772. The persecutions of the Mitnaggedim made him leave Minsk, and in 1773 he settled in Gorodok, from where he spread Hasidism in the Vitebsk and Mogilev provinces. In 1777 Menahem Mendel went to Erez Israel, accompanied by Abraham of Kalisk and Israel of Polotsk, at the head of a group of 300 persons, of whom only some were Hasidim. He became the leader of the hasidic yishuv, and sent emissaries to Russia in order to raise funds for its support. In Erez Israel Hasidic immigrants also encountered hostility among the Jewish community, as a result of the initiative of some Mitnaggedim, who addressed special letters on the subject to Erez Israel. In the wake of the disputes which broke out, Menahem Mendel moved to Tiberias, where he erected a hasidic synagogue. He became related by marriage to one of the prominent Sephardim of Jerusalem. After his arrival in Erez Israel Menahem Mendel remained the spiritual leader of the Hasidim of Belorussia, who maintained a correspondence with him. He continued to guide them in their conduct and interpreted the principles of Hasidism to them. Menahem Mendel did not consider himself to be a zaddik who could bless his Hasidim with the bounties of Heaven. He regarded his function of zaddik as being restricted to teaching and guidance in divine worship and not as that of a ‘practical’ zaddik” (Berenbaum and Skolnik in EJ, 2007) .

Born in Obodovka, Steinman was ordained a rabbi, and began to write at an early age, but it took some time before his first stories appeared in print. Steinman pursued literary work and was also a part-time Hebrew teacher in Odessa. He contributed regularly to Ha-Zefirah and worked on translations, which were not published until a later date. During this period, he began to publish long stories, as well as essays and articles. In 1920 he left Russia. During those unsettled times, having been mistaken for the Yiddish writer Baynush Steinman, a rumor was spread of his death, and he was eulogized in the Hebrew daily press and in literary periodicals, as well as in foreign-language publications. Steinman published “Teshuvah le-Maspidai, ” in Ha-? Efirah. Settling in Warsaw, he continued his regular contributions of stories, essays, and articles to Ha-Zefirah and wrote for Der Moment. Steinman founded the monthly, Kolot, which provided a forum for young writers. It was also the first attempt to compare the thought of R. Na? Man of Bratslav and Aaron Samuel Tamares with those of St. Francis of Assisi, Ibsen, and others. During his Warsaw period he published a collection of stories, a novel, a collection of articles, and two Yiddish books of essays and stories on the pogroms against Ukrainian Jews…. In later years he also undertook a massive project designed to make the resources of Jewish culture more readily available by rendering the texts in his own version and adding his own introductory notes and essays. The first book, Be’er ha-Hasidut, was followed by a series of nine books on Hasidism and a collection of hasidic stories, Kankan ha-Kesef. He also wrote Be’er ha-Talmud, on the Talmud” (Kressel in EJ, 2007) . OCLC lists 1 copy worldwide (U of Manitoba) . Hinge repair. Chipping and wear to dust jacket, fragile.

  233. Zeitlin, Hillel. ר’ נחמן בראסלאווער : דער זעער פון פאָדאָליע . R. NAHMAN BRASLAVER: DER ZEER FUN PODOLYE. Nyu York: Matones, 1952. Hardcover, 8vo, 302 pages, portraits, 24 cm. In Yiddish. SUBJECT(S): Descriptor: Hasidim -- Biography. Named Person: Nahman, of Bratslav. Title on verso of title page: Reb Nakhman Braslaver. Zeitlin (1871–1942) was an “author, thinker, and journalist. Born in Korma, Belorussia, Zeitlin received the education of a Habad Hasid; self-taught in secular studies, he became troubled by matters of religion and faith. His first work, Ha-Tov ve-ha-Ra, was pessimistic in tone and was followed by monographs on Spinoza and Nietzsche. Zeitlin was disappointed by secular culture and longed for celestial beauty, a longing expressed in Machashavah ve-Shirah. Shocked by the pogroms in Kishinev in 1903, he reveals his unceasing anxiety for the survival of the Jew in Al ha-Zevah. Out of profound reflection on the fate of the Jew, he returned to religion and came close to Orthodox Judaism, to whose literature he gave a new character. From 1906 he worked for Haynt and Der Moment, writing for 36 years on both minor topics and serious ones. From 1914 he immersed himself in mysticism and published “visions” in Ha-Tekufah. He became active in the cause of propagating Judaism, publishing Der Alef-Beys funem Yudentum (“The Alphabet of Judaism, ” 1922) , in which he establishes a Jewish outlook on the world against a scientific background, as well as books on Hasidism, on R. NaHman of Bratslav, and on Habad. During his last years, when he foresaw the Holocaust, he called for repentance with enormous fervor – in pamphlets, in speeches, and in organizing special groups of mekhuvvanim (“purposeful ones”) . Once more despairing, he gave expression to his loneliness in the book containing his last confession, Demamah ve-Kol. Zeitlin died a martyr’s death, garbed in tallit and tefillin, on the way to Treblinka on the eve of Rosh Ha-Shanah” (Urbach in EJ 2010) . Wear to binding. Light wear to cover spine and corners. Good condition. (Hasid-1-12) (ID #27427) $40.00.
