A leading figure in the national organizations of Reform Judaism, he served as a vice-president of the conference which adopted the Pittsburgh Platform in 1885, and president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (1903-05). A man of forceful energy, attention to the need for Jewish literature, and the outcome was the foundation in 1888 of the Jewish Publication Society of America, of which he was the first honorary secretary. Impressed during a visit to Russia in 1894 by the zeal with which Jews engaged in agriculture where the Russian government allowed, he established the National Farm School at Doylestown, Pennsylvania, in 1896 'as one of the best means of securing safety and happiness to the sorely afflicted of our people.

"by the Rev. Dr. G. Gottheil, Minister of the Congregation of British Jews...; published by special request of the Congregation. " The discourses are based on Isaiah xlii. 6, 7 and Leviticus xxxix. 43. Cyrus Adler and Frank H. Vizetelly note in the JE that during Gottheil's time in Manchester, "Two of his most noteworthy sermons preached in Manchester were on the slavery question, attacking those who had declared the institution to be sanctioned by Mosaic law. " He was a "Reform rabbi, liturgist, and U. S. Zionist leader. Gottheil was born in Pinne, Posen. 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 deeply. In Manchester, England, where he served the progressive Congregation of British Jews from 1869 [sic 1859] 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" (Bertram Wallace Korn in EJ).

"A scholar of Talmud, Midrash, and aggadah, whose comprehensive works in Jewish law and lore made him the doyen of Jewish scholars in the U. S. , Ginzberg was born in Kovno, Lithuania, and studied at the yeshivot of Kovno and Telz. After leaving Lithuania he studied history, philosophy, and oriental languages at the universities of Berlin, Strasbourg, where his teacher was T. Noeldeke, and Heidelberg, completing his studies in 1898. In 1899 Ginzberg immigrated to the United States to accept a position at Hebrew Union College, but when he arrived the invitation was withdrawn. He joined the staff of the Jewish Encyclopedia as editor of the rabbinic department in 1900. In 1903 he resigned to accept a position teaching Talmud at the Jewish Theological Seminary, where he remained until his death. In teaching future rabbis and by his halakhic decisions and scholarly output, he became a principal architect of the Conservative movement. He was a founder (1919-20) and president for several years of the American Academy of Jewish Research. Ginzberg's work dealt mainly with the origins of aggadah, halakhah, and the literature of the geonim. While exploring the origins of aggadah, Ginzberg uncovered many lost legends of Jewish origins preserved only in early Christian texts. In his major work The Legends of the Jews (7 vols. , 1909-38) he combined hundreds of legends, maxims, and parables from the entire midrashic literature into a continuous narrative taken from the lives of the fathers of the people of Israel, its heroes, and its prophets. He analyzed the evolution of the legend from rabbinical texts, the external books and Hellenist literature, the early Christian texts, translations, exegeses, and the Kabbalah, correlating the material with the legends of other cultures and attempting to differentiate popular from scholarly creations. One note which Ginzberg sounded in all his writings was that it was not possible to understand Jewish history and culture without a thorough knowledge of halakhah" (Hertzberg, EJ). OCLC lists no copies worldwide. Marbled edges and boards. Binding badly shaken. Bumping and fading to covers. Chipping to some pages. Title page detached but present. Otherwise in Good condition.

Glossy portrait of Baron de Hirsch facing title page. The Baron de Hirsch Fund was founded by Baron Maurice de Hirsch, "a financier and philanthropist who dedicated his fortunre to the welfare of East European Jews at a time when worsening conditions in Russia made mass emigration a stark necessity. Convinced that modern secular education would ameliorate the lot of his oppressed brethren, De Hirsch hoped to regenerate them into a class of independent farmers and handicraftsmen in the New World. In 1889, on the advice of Oscar S. Straus and Michael Heilprin, De Hirsch allocated the proceeds of a $2, 400, 000 fund toward agricultural colonies and trade schools in the United States. With the cooperation of Jacob Schiff and other American Jewish leaders, the Baron de Hirsch Fund was incorporated in New York in 1891. Judge Myer S. Isaacs became president; Schiff, vice-president; and the trustees included Straus, Mayer Sulzberger, and William Hackenburg. A subsidized rural community, Woodbine, was established in southern New Jersey, with an agricultural school which functioned until 1917. In New York the Baron de Hirsch Trade School continued to serve a generation of immigrants. Significant also was the fund's support of the Jewish Agricultural Society and of classes in English, legal aid, and other services to integrate newcomers in America" (Brand, EJ).

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1921. Paper Wrappers. 12mo. 53 pages. "An Anglo-Jewish publicist and historian, Wolf, who was born in London, the son of a Bohemian political refugee, began writing for newspapers at the age of 17. His first regular employment was with the Jewish World, of which he later became editor (1905-08). His articles in the Fortnightly Review and elsewhere, under the pseudonym "Diplomaticus, " commanded wide attention. From 1890 to 1909 he was foreign editor of the then-influential Daily Graphic. Aroused by the pogroms of 1881, Wolf became extremely interested in Russian affairs, acquired a reputation as an expert in the field, and edited the bulletin Darkest Russia (1912-14). He was supplied clandestinely with information through a network initiated by Isaac Elhanan Spektor. Wolf's anti-Russian attitude made it difficult for him to continue to work as a foreign correspondent after Great Britain's entry into World War I as Russia's ally. In 1917 he became the secretary of the Joint Foreign Committee (of the Anglo-Jewish Association and the Board of Deputies of British Jews). As such, he attended the postwar Paris Peace Conference, where he was regarded as a spokesman of "western" Jewry. Although he strongly opposed Jewish nationalism in any form, he was largely responsible for the Minorities Treaties to safeguard the civil and religious rights of Central and East European Jews. Subsequently, he acquired a reputation as an authority on minorities problems at the sessions of the League of Nations at Geneva. Originally an admirer and, to some extent, supporter of Herzl, Wolf later became the principal English spokesman of anti-Zionism, though after 1905 he collaborated with Zangwill in the Jewish Territorial Organization (see Territorialism). He had early begun research in Anglo-Jewish history, which he continued throughout his life. He wrote the centennial life of Sir Moses Montefiore (1884) , was one of the organizers of the Anglo-Jewish Historical Exhibition of 1887, and founded the Jewish Historical Society of England in 1893 (serving repeatedly as its president). His principal work was on the "middle period" of Anglo-Jewish history (after the expulsion of 1290) and on the resettlement. His contributions, based almost wholly on original sources, were of primary importance and placed the study of the subject on a new basis. He edited reports of trials of Jewish interest from the Canary Islands Inquisition records and in 1925 prepared a report on the contemporary Marranos of Portugal, a historical contribution of great importance. He contributed a most important article to the 11th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica on anti-Semitism, on the history of which he was the recognized authority in the English-speaking world. In the non-Jewish sphere he wrote a life of the English statesman Lord Ripon (1921) " (Roth, EJ). SUBJECT(S): Jewish Question-Protocols of the wise men of Zion. Ex-library with usual markings.

He joined the Bund at an early age and emigrated to the United States in 1912, where he settled in New York City. In 1919 he became editor of Der Kampf, the organ of the Jewish Communist Federation. He also joined the American Communist Party that year and became its so-called "Jewish specialist. " In 1922 he was sent to Moscow to obtain funds to establish Morning Freiheit, the party's Yiddish paper. In 1951 he was indicted under the Smith Act for conspiring to overthrow the government and was jailed from 1955 until 1957. Until his expulsion from the Party in 1958 because of revisionism he wrote for the Daily Worker (Greenstein, EJ). Bittelman denounces the main obstacles to antifascist unity of the Jewish democratic forces: the reactionary Jewish nationalists, assimilationists, and Social Democrats.

In 1887 he moved to New York City, and he soon became affiliated with the American Museum of Natural History, where he served as curator of ethnology from 1901 until 1905. In 1899 he became a professor at Columbia. One of his main theories was that "neither race nor geographical setting have the primary role in forming human beings. Culture is the behavioral environment which forms the patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior. " He worked to "refine the concept of race based on the notion of a permanent stability of bodily forms, " stressing that the influence of environmental factors of human cultural life can modify anatomy and physiology. During the 1930s he participated in efforts to rescue intellectuals persecuted by the Nazi regime (Fischoff, EJ). SUBJECT(S): Indo-Aryans; Semites; Jews-Germany. Fading to covers.

"His major literary achievement was the first American translation of the Bible, a work that took him 17 years to complete, and was published in 1845. This became the standard American Jewish translation of the Bible until the new Jewish Publication Society translation of 1917. His contributions to every area of Jewish culture and religion made him a major builder of American Judaism. " (Jack Reimer, EJ). Regarding this work, Leeser himself indicated that "The arrangement [of this edition] is strictly Jewish. My intention was to furnish a book for the service of the Synagogue, both German and Portuguese" (vol 1, pp iii, viii).

Enelow served as rabbi of Temple Israel, Paducah, Kentucky (1898-1901) , Temple Adath Israel, Louisville, Kentucky (1901-12) , and Temple Emanuel, New York (1912-34).

Published by the Central conference of American Rabbis. "A U. S. Biblical and Semitic scholar born in Russia, Margolis received a thorough training in Bible and Talmud as well as in modern sciences and languages in his native country and in Berlin. In 1889 he went to the United States. His first field of specialization was the text-criticism of the Talmud to which his dissertation was devoted. In 1897 he went to the University of California at Berkeley to teach Semitic languages and in 1905 returned to the Hebrew Union College as professor of biblical exegesis. He resigned from the Hebrew Union College in 1910, after he and other faculty members differed with the College president regarding educational philosophy and Zionism-Margolis was a strong Zionist. He went to Europe to complete his work on his pioneering and still classic Manual of the Aramaic Language of the Babylonian Talmud, which appeared both in English and in German (1910). The Jewish Publication Society chose Margolis to be secretary of the Board of Editors and editor-in-chief of their new translation of the Bible into English. To this major task he devoted himself until 1917. The book by which he is perhaps most widely known is a one-volume History of the Jewish People (1927, 19622) written in collaboration with Alexander Marx. Within the confines of a single volume the multitude of details of nearly 40 centuries of Jewish history were compressed with conciseness, clarity, and completeness. Moreover, the entire work is informed by a broad philosophic grasp of the subject, a rare balance and objectivity of treatment, and a warm love for the Jewish people and its heritage" (Gordis, EJ).

Adler was a German-born American rabbi; head of Congregation Emanu-El in New York City from 1857 to 1874. "Samuel Adler was not merely a thorough Talmudical scholar; he was also a master of the entire field of knowledge concerning the Jews. Whatever had any relation to his coreligionists-their history, religion, literature, etc. -interested him and was studied by him. He was not only a scholar, but also a man of vigorous action. During the twenty-one years of his career in Germany he took part energetically in the efforts at that time being made to remove the civil disabilities of the Jews, especially the oath more Judaico. He succeeded in obtaining the introduction of the teaching of the Jewish religion in the lower and higher schools of Worms on equal terms with Protestant and Catholic teaching. He labored earnestly to secure the recognition of the equality of the sexes in matters of religion. It was through his influence that the barrier was leveled which had separated the women's synagogue from that of the men in the ancient synagogue of Worms. He gave his special attention to the improvement of the religious instruction of the young, both in the city and in the rural schools of which he had the supervision. He made it his aim to enhance the order, the solemnity, and the dignity of the public worship. He was instrumental in founding a number of new charitable institutions. Above all, he labored with patient zeal to instruct the congregations under his charge in their ancestral religion, to liberate them from the deadening influence of literalism, and to quicken in them the spirit of Judaism. In this endeavor he frequently drew upon the storehouse of his great Talmudic learning for the arguments which he used in his struggle for progress, seeking always to rest the reformation of manners upon a basis of inward conviction, and favoring a gradual transformation rather than an abrupt transition from the old to the new.

Rabbi and pioneer of Reform Judaism. Wise was born in Steingrub, Bohemia and he lived in Prague and Vienna, and studied at various yeshivot. His later writings suggest that the ideas of the French Enlightenment must have influenced him in his younger days. In 1843 he became the rabbinical officiate (Religionsweiser) at Radnitz in Bohemia. The Hapsburg Empire offered bleak prospects for Wise personally and for the removal of disabilities suffered by Jews. He resolved to emigrate-whether with a view to pursuing the rabbinic calling is uncertain-and arrived in New York in 1846. The free atmosphere of America seemed to liberate in Wise capacities of which he had given no indication in Europe. He became rabbi of Congregation Beth El in Albany, N.Y., introducing reforms such as mixed pews, choral singing, and confirmation, designed to improve public worship. In 1854 Wise went to Cincinnati as rabbi of Congregation B'nai Jeshurun, remaining there for the rest of his life. Within a few months of his arrival he began to publish a weekly, The Israelite, later known as The American Israelite, and a German supplement Die Deborah. By the end of the year he established the short-lived Zion College, combining Hebrew and secular studies. In 1856 he published Minhag America, a curtailment with modifications of the traditional Hebrew ritual. Despite repeated setbacks, Wise always returned to his advocacy of a union of congregations, a common prayer book, and a college to train American rabbis. His interest was focused on one particular aspect of the Union's tasks-the establishment of a rabbinical college. He was appointed president of Hebrew Union College, which opened in 1875. For the remainder of his life Wise labored in the interests of the college. He ordained more than 60 rabbis, and by the time of his death had become the "founding father" of the Reform movement in America" (Temkin, EJ). Not the more common 1888 edition.

SUBJECT (S): Jewish sermons, American. "[R]ecognition of the sermon as an integral part of the synagogue service only came after Isaac Leeser obtained the right to preach regularly in 1843. Leeser published his sermons which were delivered in English to an Orthodox congregation, in Discourses-Argumentative and Devotional (2 vols. 1837) and Discourses on the Jewish Religion (10 vols. 1866-67)....Leeser was the first to introduce a regular English sermon into the synagogue service. In 1843 he founded the monthly The Occident, the first successful Jewish newspaper. For 25 years, this was an important forum for articles on Jewish life and thought. Leeser was its editor, chief contributor, bookkeeper, and sometimes even typesetter. Leeser founded the first Jewish Publication Society of America and brought many important works to the attention of the American Jewish community. He published the first Hebrew primer for children (1838) , the first complete English translation of the Sephardi prayer book (1848) , and numerous textbooks for children. He founded the first Hebrew high school (1849) , the first Jewish representative and defense organization in 1859 (the Board of Delegates of American Israelites) , Maimonides College, and the first American Jewish rabbinical school in 1867. His major literary achievement was the first American translation of the Bible, a work that took him 17 years to complete, and was published in 1845. This became the standard American Jewish translation of the Bible until the new Jewish Publication Society translation of 1917....Leeser was a traditionalist who did much to stem the tide of Reform. Although he was identified with the Sephardi community his influence affected the entire community and he laid the foundations for many of the key institutions of present-day Jewish life. His contributions to every area of Jewish culture and religion made him a major builder of American Judaism" (Alexander Carlebach; Jack Reimer; both in EJ).

Lawyer and Zionist, Szold, who was born in Streator, Illinois, served as assistant attorney general in Puerto Rico (1915) and assistant to U. S. Solicitor General John W. Davis (1915-18) before returning to private practice. A Zionist from youth, Szold and Harry Friedenwald went to Palestine as members of the Zionist commission in 1919. In 1920 he went to London as a member of the Reorganization Commission together with Julius Simon and Nehemia de Lieme. Szold aligned himself with the Brandeis-Mack forces, who were nevertheless ousted by the Weizmann supporters from the Zionist Organization of America administration (1921). In 1930 the ZOA formally recalled the Brandeis-Mack leadership and Szold served as chairman of the administration until 1932. He was among those who opposed the 1937 proposal of partitioning Palestine between Jews and Arabs. Yet at the 22nd World Zionist Congress in 1946, Szold supported Weizmann in his desire to negotiate with the British instead of the more militant position of Abba Hillel Silver, which prevailed. Szold was a member of numerous organizations devoted to the economic development of Palestine including the Palestine Endowment Funds, Inc. (est. 1922) , and the Palestine Economic Corporation (est. 1926) " (Berkowitz, EJ).

In German and Hebrew. At head of title: Higayon lev (romanized). Religiφse Lieder (without music): p. 255-264. Anhang: System der jόdischen Zeitrechnung. Benjamin Szold was a Hungarian-born rabbi who became rabbi to Congregation Oheb Shalom in Baltimore. "Oheb Shalom was then on the verge of becoming Reform, but Szold led it to a Judaism which allowed for innovations in ritual practice, but not in basic tenets. He recognized and employed the educational potential of the regular Sabbath sermon. He introduced his own prayer book, Avodat Yisrael (1867) , to replace the previously used Minhag Amerikah (1857) by I. M. Wise, and the traditional siddur. The Avodat Yisrael was widely adopted by congregations throughout the country. Under Szold's leadership Oheb Shalom became one of the foremost American congregations. " (Gladys Rosen, EJ) "The authors of the American prayer-books were extremely radical in the abridgment of the Hebrew text and in eliminating all references to a personal Messiah, the restoration, and the resurrection of the dead, and in place of 'resurrection, ' 'immortality' was sometimes substituted.

"Olat Tamid didn't just shorten the traditional service; it was a creative work expressing the Einhorn's Reform ideal of the universality of humanity with an anti-particularistic strain. 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 for 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.

THE FIRST FULL JEWISH PRAYER BOOK PUBLISHED IN AMERICA




Leeser4c-a.JPG (359184 bytes) 237. • Leeser, Isaac. SIDUR SIFTE TSADIKIM [SIFTHEI TZADIKIM]. THE FORM OF PRAYERS ACCORDING TO THE CUSTOM OF THE SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE JEWS [SEPHARDIC SIDDUR]. LARGE SIZE, LACKING ONLY VOL. III (OF 6 VOLUMES). Philadelphia: Haswell, Barrington and Haswell, 1837-1838, 1846. 1st edition [vol I is 2nd edition]. Tall 8vo. 204, 121, 176, 182, 186, [4], 12 pages. 186, [4], 12. 23 cm. Hebrew text, parallel English translation. Vol VI includes 12 pages of errata for all 6 volumes of the first edition, as well as a subscribers list of over 150 names from 19 cities and towns across the Eastern US and Jamaica, and also Leeser's humble 2-page postscript: "When I first undertook the publication of the Prayer Books, I soon discovered that, although I had made the Hebrew almost my daily study for years, still much was unknown to me wich I ougth to have been familiar with, in order to furnish a correct and faultless edition...." Singerman 0630 (1837-38) & 0939 (1846). Checklist of American Imprints, Nr. 45167. Sidur Sifte Tsadikim, Leeser's comprehensive Sephardic prayer book, here primarily in its first edition of 1837-38, was the first American prayerbook containing the liturgy for the entire year. It contains the original Hebrew text and an English translation. Following the 1st edition of 1837-38 and the 2nd revised edition of 1846, Leeser changed to a smaller, 12mo, "more portable form" (adv. In the Occident, Dec. 1851, cited in Goldman). The set presented here is the original, large 8vo size. Leeser marketed his prayer book both to audiences in American and the British colonies in the Caribbean, and he thus included prayers on behalf of a Monarch and a Republican government. Reprinted a number of times throughout the 19th & 20th Centuries, it became the standard prayer book for Sephardic Jews in North America. Leeser founded the first Jewish Publication Society of America and "brought many important works to the attention of the American Jewish community. He published the first Hebrew primer for children (1838) , the first complete English translation of the Sephardi prayer book (1848) [sic 1837-8, presented here], and numerous textbooks for children. He founded the first Hebrew high school (1849) , the first Jewish representative and defense organization in 1859 (the Board of Delegates of American Israelites) , Maimonides College, and the first American Jewish rabbinical school in 1867. His major literary achievement was the first American translation of the Bible,...published in 1845. This became the standard American Jewish translation of the Bible until the new Jewish Publication Society translation of 1917....Leeser was a traditionalist who did much to stem the tide of Reform. Although he was identified with the Sephardi community his influence affected the entire community and he laid the foundations for many of the key institutions of present-day Jewish life. His contributions to every area of Jewish culture and religion made him a major builder of American Judaism. " (Jack Reimer, EJ) Contents of complete set: v. 1. Daily prayers. --v. 2. New-year service. --v. 3. Day of atonement service [missing]. --v. 4. Tabernacle service. --v. 5. Passover and Pentecost service. --v. 6. Fast day service. SUBJECT(S): Judaism -- Liturgy. Prayers. Texts. The 1st edition remains quite rare, with only 10 institutions listed in OCLC with sets. Goldman 36: "This Sephardic prayer book, containing the liturgy for the entire year, was the first comprehensive prayer book published in America....in the introduction, Leeser attempted to demonstrate why his text and translation were superior to the one published by his competitor, David Aaron de Sola, a London hazzan....Leeser ordered new Hebrew types from abroad for this work and had to teach Hebrew to the typesetters, Benjamin George Smith...and Jacob Washington Fletcher....Leeser announced in 1851 that the '500 copies...became gradually exhausted in 14 years...'" indicating a very limited run of the scarce large-size first 2 printings. A Complete LATER 1857 2nd-3rd edition (i. E. Mixed) set with a set of Leeser's 5 volume 1845 bible recently sold at auction for over $82, 000.00. We located no other sets of any edition, let alone the scarcer large-size first two printings, having come up for auction in the last decade. Vols I, II, IV, & V bound in (non-matching) full leather, I, IV, & V raised bands and gilt tooling on spine & boards, all have some wear but are solid; Vol I has edgewear to the margins of some pages with some repairs and the inside hinges are starting, though the external leather remains strong and attractive. Vol. VI is bound in modern cloth. All have occational stamps and ownership signatures on the end papers and are very handsome. For example, Vol V bears the name "Judith Einstein" tooled in gilt on rear cover; her ownership signature also appears on the front endpaper: "Judith Einstein/April 8, 1852/N. Y. " The later ownership signature of American Sephardic leader David De Sola Pool ("D de Sola Pool") also appears opposite, on the inside front cover. The Einsteins were a wealthy New York City merchant family. The association with de Sola Pool is especially interesting since "[t]he best-known modern Sephardi prayer book and mahzor were the ones edited by David de Sola Pool" [EJ]. In addition, Vol II bears the name "B. S. Hart" in gilt on the front cover. Given the source of this volume, this is presumably Bernard Hart (1763-1855) , an American merchant and father of Congressman Emanuel B. Hart. From a previous brief first marriage to Catherine Brett, a non-Jew, in 1799, Bernard also had another son, Henry, whose son in turn "was the literary figure Bret Harte. By the time of Bernard Hart's second marriage, in 1806, to Rebecca Seixas, niece of hazzan Gershom Mendes Seixas, Hart had become parnas of Shearith Israel Congregation in New York, a post which he held for three years. He was active in the affairs of the congregation for many years, especially in its burial society. Hart is reported to have served as a quartermaster in the New York State Militia in 1787, and as a major during the War of 1812. He was a member of the committees which established the first New York Exchange office in 1792, and the New York Stock and Exchange Board in 1817, serving as secretary of the latter 1831-53" (Bertram Wallace Korn in EJ).

His thesis that this work served as the model for Isaac Aboab's work of the same name was widely discussed though not universally accepted.

From the Jewish Theological Seminary he received his rabbinical degree in 1910 and later a doctorate in Hebrew literature. From Columbia University he received his doctorate in philosophy. After engaging in various communal, educational, and relief activities before, during, and after World War I, he began his long association with the New York Yiddish daily, The Day, in 1922. He served as editor (1926-42) , English columnist, and commentator on Jewish events. Margoshes espoused the causes both of Zionism and of Diaspora Jewry. For him the survival and growth of the Jewish people everywhere were of prime importance. The strengthening of the State of Israel, while a necessary means to achieve this objective, was for him not an end in itself. Hence, he emphasized the need for Yiddish as well as Hebrew, and the building of an American center of Judaism as well as the Israel center, both interdependent and influencing each other's development, economically, politically, and spiritually. As vice-president of the Zionist Organization of America, he participated in World Zionist congresses and served on the Zionist General Council for many years" (Liptzin, EJ). SUBJECT(S): Richard J.

Black and white frontis portrait. "Alexander Kohut (1842-1894) was a rabbi and scholar. He earned his doctorate in oriental languages at the University of Leipzig in 1865, and was ordained at the Breslau Seminary in 1867. After graduation he served as rabbi in Stuhlweissenburg (Szekesfehervar, Hungary). While there he was county superintendent of schools, the first Jew to hold this position. At Budapest in 1868, the Congress of Jewish Notables elected Kohut secretary. In 1872 he became chief rabbi of Fuenfkirchen (Pecs, Hungary) , where he remained for eight years. He was appointed to the Hungarian parliament by the prime minister as representative of the Jews, but shortly thereafter (1885) he left for the United States to serve as rabbi of Congregation Ahabath Chesed in New York. Kohut's reputation as rabbi and scholar had preceded him and he was warmly welcomed. He became involved in the struggle between the traditionalists and Reform. Out of this controversy came his Ethics of the Fathers (1885, 19202) , which established the traditionalists' position. Kohut played a major role in the establishment of the Jewish Theological Seminary and taught Midrash and Talmudic methodology there. He was one of the first scholars to write about the Yemenite Midrashim. His greatest work was the Arukh ha-Shalem (8 vols. , 1878-92) , a lexicon of Talmudic terms which Solomon Schechter called "the greatest and finest specimen of Hebrew learning ever produced by a Jew on this continent. " In form it is a new scholarly edition of the Arukh of Nathan b. Jehiel of Rome, but in fact it is a path-finding contribution to Talmudic philology in which Kohut offers etymologies and additional sources which exhibit his wide knowledge of oriental and classical languages" (Reimer, Kaddari, EJ).

374. • Zhitlowsky, Chaim, editor. DOS NAYE LEBEN. Vol I, 1-12 Complete (Dec. 1908-Nov. 1909). New York: Ferayn "Dos Naye Leben", 1908-1909. Half-leather, 8vo, aprox 768 pages. 23 cm. Yiddish Monthly, published 1908-1914, by Zhitlowski. Zhitlowski (1865–1943) was a “Yiddish philosopher and writer. Zhitlowsky was the chief theoretician of galut ("Diaspora") nationalism and Yiddishism. Born in a small town near Vitebsk, Russia, he gave up his studies at 15 when he became a Socialist, and moved to Tula in Central Russia, where he joined the Narodniki, the anti-czarist populist movement. Engaged in propaganda among non-Jews, he was completely estranged from Jewish interests, but the pogroms of the 1880s brought him back to Vitebsk and to his Jewish roots. The Hibbat Zion movement, and particularly M. L. Lilienblum, influenced him profoundly without converting him to Zionism. He believed that a full Jewish national life could be lived in the Diaspora. In 1886 he began researches in Jewish history at St. Petersburg and in 1887 published his study in Russian on Judaism's historic destiny. A basic idea of this study was that the Jewish people in its difficult struggle for survival had become estranged from the historic ideals which had justified its existence. This study was violently attacked by S. Dubnow in the Russian press, while the Hebrew press dubbed Zhitlowsky a Jewish anti-Semite and heretic. In 1888 Zhitlowsky left for Berlin and then moved to Zurich. He tried to convince the Russian Social Democratic leaders in exile of the desirability of issuing propaganda literature in Yiddish for the Jewish masses. He failed because these leaders, including the Jews among them, felt that publications in Yiddish might impede the complete assimilation of Jews to Russian ways. In his Zurich period, he also expressed his doubts as to the necessary connection between socialism and economic materialism. In 1892 he called upon Jewish intellectuals to return to their people, stating that not only equal civil rights but also equal national rights were needed for a Jewish resurgence, because Jews formed a distinct national group and must therefore strive for national emancipation. In 1893 he helped to found the Russian party of Socialist-Revolutionaries in exile and coedited its journal Russky Rabochy. He also founded a Jewish Socialist Union, which published socialist literature in Yiddish. He participated as a correspondent in the First Zionist Congress at Basle, 1897, but rejected Zionism as a reactionary movement dangerous for Eastern European Jewry. Only under socialism would Jews be redeemed as Jews and as workers. Jews need not emigrate to Zion. They could engage in productive labor and develop Jewish schools, universities, national and cultural institutions in their present countries. An article entitled "Farvos Davke Yidish?" ("Why Yiddish?"), written in 1897 and published in 1900, initiated his intensive activity as the theoretician of Yiddishism. He joined the Bund in 1898, a year after its foundation, and published in its ideological organ Der Yidisher Arbeter his essay, Tsionizmus oder Sotsyalizmus (1899), in which he argued that socialism was not necessarily linked with faceless cosmopolitanism and nondescript humanity but afforded each nation an opportunity to develop its national uniqueness in multi-national states. The Kishinev pogroms in 1903 brought about a change of ideas and inclined him toward Territorialism.In 1904 Zhitlowsky arrived in the United States for a lecture tour on behalf of his Socialist-Revolutionary Party and stirred Jewish immigrant masses with his oratory. His lectures on "Jew and Man" and on "The Future of Peoples in America" opposed the melting-pot philosophy and advanced a United States of harmoniously functioning nationalities. These lectures converted many Yiddish speaking cosmopolitan socialists into Jewish socialists. While in the United States, he became coeditor of the weekly Dos Folk, a territorialist socialist publication, in which he advocated a fusion of socialism and Jewish nationalism, of autonomy in the Diaspora and a Jewish territorial center. Returning to Europe, he was elected to the Second Russian Duma, and participated as chairman in the Czernowitz Yiddish Conference of 1908. After 1908 he made his permanent home in New York, where he edited the monthly Dos Naye Lebn (1908–13), which was revived in 1922 with S. Niger as coeditor. His two-volume work, Di Filosofye, Vos Zi Iz un Vi Zi Hot Zikh Antvikelt ("The Development of Philosophy," 1910), an outgrowth of lectures to American and Canadian audiences, was the first serious history of philosophy written in Yiddish. His Gezamlte Shriftn appeared in three editions (10 vols., 1912–19, 1929–32, and 1945–51). A Hebrew edition Ketavim, with an introduction by R. Mahler, appeared in 1961. In 1914 Zhitlowsky visited Erez Israel, became interested in Labor Zionism, and wrote pamphlets in the spirit of Po'alei Zion. Returning to New York, he joined the staff of the Yiddish daily The Day and helped to found the American Jewish Congress. He was an enthusiastic supporter of the establishment of the Jewish Legion. Zhitlowsky translated Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zarathustra (1919) into Yiddish and wrote scholarly essays on Kant, Einstein, Job, and Faust.In 1936 Zhitlowsky, who had been a lifelong, bitter foe of dogmatic Marxism and Bolshevism, was shocked into a more friendly attitude toward Soviet Russia by the ever increasing danger of Hitlerism. He endorsed Birobidzhan as the realization of his idea of a Jewish territory for productive Jewish masses. He justified Soviet actions, including the Moscow Trials of 1936. He considered the German persecution of the Jews as a punishment for the negative socioeconomic role played by the Jewish middle classes. As a result he became estranged from all except a pro-Soviet sector of his Jewish admirers during the last years of his life.As the outstanding ideologist of Diaspora nationalism and Yiddishism, Zhitlowsky influenced the programs of all Jewish national parties, but only in his struggle against assimilationism was his influence profound and enduring, both in the former Russian Pale and among the American Jewish immigrants. More important than his theoretical justification for the existence of Yiddish was his practical application of Yiddish in his journalistic and scholarly style which delineated ideas and philosophical systems.” (JE) SUBJECT(S) Descriptor: Jews Periodicals.
