Mateh Aharon. Abravanel (1437-1508) was a “statesman, biblical exegete, and theologian. Offshoot of a distinguished Ibero-Jewish family, Abrabanel spent 45 years in Portugal, then passed the nine years immediately prior to Spanish Jewry's 1492 expulsion in Castile. At that time an important figure at the court of Ferdinand and Isabella, he chose Italian exile over conversion to Christianity. He spent his remaining years in various centers in Italy where he composed most of his diverse literary corpus, a combination of prodigious biblical commentaries and involved theological tomes. Like his father Judah, Abrabanel engaged successfully in both commerce and state finance while in Lisbon. After his father died he succeeded him as a leading financier at the court of King Alfonso V of Portugal. His importance at court was not restricted to his official sphere of activities…After the 1492 expulsion, Abrabanel passed two years in Naples. Here he completed his commentary on Kings. But he was again prevented from devoting his time to study for long, eventually coming to serve in the court of Alfonso ii. Abrabanel tells of wealth recouped in Italy and renewed fame "akin to that of all of the magnates in the land. " Abrabanel's fortunes turned again, however, when the French sacked Naples. His library was destroyed. Before departing Naples, Abrabanel managed to complete a work on dogma (Rosh Amanah) structured around Maimonides' enumeration of 13 foundational principles of Judaism. Abrabanel now followed the royal family to Messina, remaining there until 1495. Subsequently he removed to Corfu where he began his commentaries on Isaiah and the Minor Prophets and then to Monopoli (Apulia) , where early in 1496 he completed the commentary on Deuteronomy which he had begun in Lisbon, as well as his commentaries on the Passover Haggadah (Zevah Pesa’) , and on Avot. Of the same period are his works expressing the hopes for redemption which at times explain contemporary events as messianic tribulations – Ma’yenei Yeshu’ah, Yeshu’ot Meshi’o, and Mashmi’a Yeshu’ah. Two other works addressed the problem of the world's createdness, Shamayim Hadashim and Mifalot Elohim. In 1503, Abrabanel settled at last in Venice. He was engaged in negotiations between the Venetian senate and the kingdom of Portugal in that year, for a commercial treaty to regulate the spice trade. He now finished commentaries on Jeremiah and Ezekiel, Genesis and Exodus, and Leviticus and Numbers. In a reply to an enquiry from Saul ha-Kohen of Candia, he mentions that he was engaged in composing his book ‘Edek Olamim, on recompense and punishment, and Lahakat ha-Nevi'im, on prophecy, and in completing his commentary on Maimonides' Guide of the Perplexed. Abrabanel died in Venice and was buried in Padua. Owing to the destruction of the Jewish cemetery there during the wars in 1509, his grave is unknown” (Avneri, Zvi, Avraham Grossman, Alvin J.

He was drawn to liberal Judaism at the University of Berlin, and studied with such scholars as Steinschneider and Zunz. During 1855–60 Gottheil was a teacher at the Reform Gemeinde in Berlin and preaching assistant to Samuel Holdheim, who impressed him greatly. In Manchester, England, where he served the progressive Congregation of British Jews from 1869 to 1873, Gottheil mastered English, then joined Temple Emanu-El of New York City in 1873 as co-rabbi to the aging Samuel Adler. Challenging the ethical culture theories of Felix Adler, son of Samuel Adler, Gottheil espoused a more traditional theistic Judaism, and was upheld by the congregation. He attempted to maintain a rabbinical school under Emanu-El's auspices during 1874–85, but it had very few students. Gottheil published a hymnal in 1886 and a devotional compilation Sun and Shield (1896). He voluntarily abandoned issuing his own prayer book in favor of the Union Prayer Book, which included a number of his translations and renderings. The most important American rabbi publicly to support Zionism during the First Zionist Congress in 1897, Gottheil, his son Richard Gottheil, and Stephen S. Wise were among the founders of the Federation of American Zionists. Gottheil was a teacher and friend to such young rabbis as Stephen S. Wise, Leon Harrison, and Samuel Schulman. In a sense he was a bridge from the German beginnings of Reform to its Eastern – as distinct from Midwestern – American flowering. ” (EJ, 2007) Gilt titles, red-colored edges. Ex library.

In its modern approach to worship, it cut out Kol Nidrei; it utilized various Sephardic piyyutim (religious poems); it dropped the Musaf service entirely; it did not include blessings fort the blowing of shofar or the lighting of Chanukah lights; it de-emphasized Israel as the Chosen People; and it removed all references to a personal Messiah, a return to Israel, or the resumption of the sacrificial cult.

Embossed boards; decorative endpapers. English and Hebrew on facing pages. The word "mahzor" (shortened from "mahzor tefillim") , denoting "prayer-book, " means literally astronomical or yearly cycle...Spanish, Italian, and French mahzorim were issued sometimes in octavo and smaller sizes, and were often written in small script and handsomely bound. In Germany the various collections were seldom issued in quarto, but generally in folio, with the exception of the Siddur proper, which was issued in smaller size. In contrast to these heavy and expensive volumes for public worship, the 12mo or 16mo Siddur was used for private devotions after the thirteenth century. The latter often contained much superstitious matter, part of which, in the course of time, found its way into the regular prayer-books and was then accepted as part of the ritual service... The first attempt to render the Mahzor into English was made by A. Alexander, who in 1787 published the piyyutim for the eve of the Day of Atonement, and in 1789 the whole service for New-Year. In 1794 David Levi published an English version of the services for New-Year, the Day of Atonement, and the feasts of Tabernacles and Pentecost, and thirteen years later gave a new version of the whole Mahzor. In 1860 a new English version was published by David Aaron de Sola. " (JE) This edition not in Singerman. SUBJECT(S): Shavuot -- Liturgy -- Texts. Mahzorim -- Texts.

Pardo (1718-1790) was a “rabbinical author and poet. Born in Venice, he went to Sarajevo for a time as a result of a dispute over an inheritance, and from there to Spalato, in Dalmatia. From approximately 1738 he was a teacher of children, at the same time studying under the local rabbi, Abraham David Papo. Eventually Pardo was appointed rabbi of the town. From 1760 he was rabbi of Sarajevo. From 1776 to 1782 he traveled to Erez Israel, settling in Jerusalem where he served as head of the yeshivah Hesed le-Avraham u-Vinyan Shelomo. Pardo was regarded as one of Jerusalem's great rabbis. Of his many works his series of commentaries and novellae on tannaitic literature are especially original. His first work was Shoshannim le-David, a commentary on the Mishnah. The somewhat sharp language he employed in the first part in criticizing contemporary scholars gave rise to friction between him and David Corinaldi and Mas'ud Rokeah in Leghorn. But after he mitigated his language in the second part and published an apology, a reconciliation took place. Pardo's Hasdei David on the Tosefta is considered the most important commentary on this work. He completed the work in Jerusalem on his 68th birthday. Portions of it were published in the Romm Vilna edition of the Talmud with the text of the Tosefta. Similarly, his Sifrei de-Vei Rav, which he commenced in 1786 and was published by his son Abraham after his death, is the most important commentary on the Sifrei. In it he makes use of commentaries of Hillel b. Eliakim, Solomon ibn Okhana, and Eliezer ibn Nahum, all of which he had in manuscript. Other works he wrote are Mikhtam le-David, halakhic decisions and responsa; Maskil le-David, a supercommentary on Rashi's biblical commentary; La-Menazze'ah le-David, on those talmudic passages where alternative explanations are given; and Mizmor le-David, notes on the Perot Ginnosar of Hezekiah da Silva and Hayyim ibn Attar on Shulhan Arukh, Even ha-Ezer. Pardo's liturgical poems and prayers are included in the Sephardi daily and festival prayer books. His arrangement of the Avodah for the Day of Atonement, which was adopted in the Sephardi rite, appeared in his Shifat Revivim” (Havlin in EJ, 2007). OCLC lists 1 copy worldwide (Stanford).

Abraham's mentor in Hasidism was R. Fishel of Strykow. He was an admirer of Simhah Bunim of Przysucha whom he twice visited. In 1819 Abraham was appointed rabbi of Ciechanow, where he officiated until his death. Although invited to serve as rabbi in Lodz, Lublin, and Polock he refused to leave the smaller community. From 1866 he was acknowledged as a zaddik by the Hasidim in Ciechanow, but continued to follow the Ashkenazi rite contrary to usual hasidic practice. He never followed the custom of receiving "petitions" or money from his followers. Abraham frequently took part in consultations over public matters of Jewish interest.

When Kook left to become rabbi in Jaffa, Lewin continued his studies at the Berlin Rabbinical Seminary and Berne University. In Berne he edited the journal for Jewish studies and Jewish religious thought Tahkemoni. In 1912 he went to Erez Israel, where he served as a teacher and later as head of the religious schools network Nezah Yisra'el. He also founded the short-lived Alummah Society for Jewish Studies, for which he edited the publication Alummah. Lewin's major and pioneering work was in the field of geonic studies...

" From the Preface: "This fourth selection of ninety-seven Hebrew manuscripts from the celebrated collection of the late David Solomon Sassoon illustrates further the great wealth and diversity of Hebrew literature from the earliest times and illuminates for us the spiritual life of the Jews in the Orient, Palestine (Eretz-Israel) , Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Persia and the dispersed Jewish communities of India, the Benci Israel and Cochin and demonstrates their great cultural attainments in Spain, Italy and Germany. The contents of these manuscripts cover the Bible, Talmudic commentaries, Liturgy, philosophy, Kabbalah, Midrashim and science. One of the most important items in the sale is the world-famous Bible, completed in Soria (Spain) in 1312 by Shem Tov Ben Abraham Gaon, the great authority on Halakha and Kabbalah. The sale includes a Torah rich in micrographic art, one of the oldest manuscripts of Rashi's commentary (with variant readings) , the Former Prophets from Spain and the Latter Prophets from Ashkenaz, all of the 13th century; the Psalms in Hebrew and Judaeo-Arabic from 14th century Yemen are probably the most important part of Sa'adva Gaon's translation. Among the Rabbinical Codes and commentaries is that of Maimonides written in 1355-1356, which includes important textual variants and many Responsa of famous German Rabbis, some of which are unpublished and contain a remarkable illustration in gothic style. Other unpublished texts are Talmudic texts in the tradition of Spanish Provencal Novellae: on Pesachim and Nazir. Cultural and social life of the Jews in 13th century Italy is illustrated by the three Codes of Isaiah di Trani the Elder and the Younger. Very few Hebrew manuscripts refer to England, but we have here a rabbinic codex of the 13th century mentioning England before the expulsion of the Jews in 1290. The liturgical works include a 14th-century Spanish work of importance for its early primitive Jewish Art, and another one in Spanish, richly decorated and written by the famous Amsterdam calligrapher Judah Machabeulo. Another of these manuscripts has the text of Books of the Bible written in minuscle letters in the margins. From Italy there is a splendid Machzor, written in Perugia in 1415. There are very rare liturgies of the Benci Israel in India, others of the Cochin Jews, Algiers. Baghdad, Persia and the Yemen. " (CT-8) (ID #14921) $35.00.

Julius Galliner was born on February 3, 1872 in Zinten (East Prussia, now Sindi, Estonia). Hhe attended the Hochschule für die Wissenschaft des Judentums and the University of Berlin. He received his doctorate in 1897. In 1917 Galliner became a rabbi for the greater Berlin community. In addition to his teaching, Galliner represented educational interests as a member of the board of education in Charlottenburg, the Talmud-Thora board of the Jewish Community in Berlin, and as the head of his school leadership as well as of the regional rabbinate. He also helped to found the Teachers' Educational Institute (Lehrer-Bildungsanstalt) of the Prussian Union (Preussischen Landesverband).

Leopold Zunz was "founder of the modern 'science of Judaism' and pioneer in the history of Jewish literature, religious poetry, and the ritual of the synagogue; born at Detmold Aug. 10, 1794; died at Berlin March 18, 1886...The Synagogale Poesie des Mittelalters was published March 2, 1855, and discussed the various kinds of poetry incorporated in the Jewish services, their external forms, their inner motive, and the circumstances, hopes, experiences, and sufferings that had evoked them. To trace the development of the Hebrew language in these monuments of the Jewish spirit was another of the preoccupations of Zunz, who showed, especially in his introductory chapter, that he who woke to new life the Jewish hymnal handled the German tongue with a mastership equaled only by the greatest writers, while his German translations helped to illustrate and vitalize the story. This introductory chapter has, indeed, become a classic, George Eliot deeming its phrases worthy of incorporation in Daniel Deronda. Under the necessity of abbreviating the services at public worship the piyyutim had been attacked for years by those who strove for a reform of the ritual. Zunz's work gave the proof that these hymns were the slow accretion of centuries and were unequal in value. Yet, on the other hand, his book showed what wealth of feeling and fervor of faith lay hidden in these outbursts of lament, penitence, and expectancy. He demonstrated that the jewel-casket of the medieval Synagogue contained many a priceless gem in addition to several of inferior value. " (Isidore Singer & Emil G.
