Lerner & Seth Jerchower in their “The Penn/Cambridge Genizah Fragment Project: Issues in Description, Access, and Reunification” (Philadelphia, 2006): "Danzig’s 1997 catalog of Rabbinic fragments at the Library of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, while oriented upon the holdings of one local collection, exhaustively provides cross-matches and concordances. " The Cairo Geniza is a collection of almost 280,000 Jewish manuscript fragments found in the Genizah or storeroom of the Ben Ezra Synagogue in Fustat, presently Old Cairo, Egypt. Some additional fragments were found in the Basatin cemetery east of Old Cairo, and the collection includes a number of old documents bought in Cairo in the later 19th century. It is presently dispersed among a number of libraries, including the libraries of Cambridge University and the University of Manchester…. In 1896, English travelers Agnes S. Lewis and Margaret D. Gibson returned from Egypt with fragments from the genizah they considered to be of interest, and showed them to Solomon Schechter at Cambridge. Schechter, already aware of the Genizah but not of its significance, immediately recognized the importance of the material. He later went to Egypt, acquired many documents, and brought the contents of the Genizah to scholarly and popular attention….The Taylor-Schechter collection at Cambridge has nearly 193,000 fragments (137,000 shelf-marks); there are a further 31,000 fragments at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. Also, the John Rylands University Library in Manchester holds a collection of over 11,000 fragments…” (Wikipedia, 2011). SUBJECT(S): Cairo Genizah -- Catalogs.

Samuel Lampronti was an “Italian rabbi and physician; born Feb. 3, 1679, at Ferrara; died Nov. 16, 1756. …Lampronti's life-work was his famous rabbinical encyclopedia ‘Pahad Yiha ’ (name derived from Gen. Xxxi. 42), the material for which he had begun to collect as early as his student days at Mantua, and on which he worked during his whole life. When he decided, in his old age, to publish this great work, he traveled together with his pupil Jacob Saraval, as the latter says in the preface of the correctors (Saraval and Simhah Callinari), through the Italian cities in order to secure the approbations (‘haskamot’) of the rabbinical authorities of Italy for the work. The collection of these approbations, which were given in 1749 and 1750, is a curious monument of the Jewish scholars of northern Italy in the eighteenth century; it includes sonnets and poems in other forms in honor of Lampronti. The following cities are represented by their yeshibahs or rabbis: Venice, Leghorn, Reggio, Verona, Ancona, Padua, Mantua, Casale Monferrato, Modena, Turin, Florence, Alessandria della Paglia, Pesaro, Finale, Lugo, Rovigo. In the second volume are added the approbations of R. Malachi b. Jacob Kohn of Leghorn, author of the ‘Yad Mal'aki, ’ and of three Palestinian scholars stopping at Ferrara. The work was planned to fill six volumes, as recorded in the printing permit of the Jewish communal directorate of Venice. But only the first volume and the first half of the second volume appeared during the author's lifetime. … Vol. Iii. Appeared in the same year; it contains: het, end (fol. 1-61), tet (fol. 63-93). These volumes were printed at the press of Isaac Foa (formerly Bragadini) at Venice. Two other volumes appeared in 1813 (vol. Iv., Reggio) and 1840 (vol. V., Leghorn); vol. Iv. Contains the letters yod (fol. 1-41a. ), kaf (fol. 41a-108); lamed (specially paged, 1-26); … In 1845 the autograph manuscript of the entire work was acquired by the Bibliothèque Nationale of Paris, in 120 volumes, 68 of which corresponded with the parts that had so far appeared. The Paris manuscript also contains the author's Italian correspondence, which was not included in the edition (see Cat. Hebr. MSS. Bibliothèque Nationale. P. 61. Nos. 458-577). The society Mekize Nirdamim, on its foundation, took as one of its first tasks the publication of those portions of Lampronti's work which had not yet been printed. … the publication of the work was completed 127 years after the appearance of the first volume. Lampronti's work is an alphabetically arranged encyclopedia to the Talmud and Talmudic literature. In the censor's permit, dated June, 1749, prefixed to the first volume, it is designated as "Dizionario Rituale in Lingua Ebraica, " a designation which probably originated with the author. As a matter of fact Lampronti's encyclopedia deals chiefly with the Halakah, the material for the articles being taken from the entire halakic literature down to the latest responsa, which he had, in part, in manuscript. He devotes much space to discussing questions of ritual law, as found in the responsa of contemporary Italian rabbis. On some questions he gives the entire correspondence, as on fols. 9d-13a, 31d-37d, 46d-50a, 74b-76a, 79c-80b, 102b-107a, in the first volume. The arrangement is a characteristic feature of the work. Single words are used occasionally as headings for his articles, but more frequently he uses entire sentences, either as he found them in the sources, or as propositions derived from the sources. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia).

He felt that conditions in America were auspicious for the establishment of Jewish libraries, but with the exception of a handful of individuals, among them Sulzberger, wealthy Jews were not interested (pp. 5-6). Sulzberger lated donated his own private library, amassed by Deinard, to JTSA and it provided the foundation of what would become the most important Judaica library in the western hemisphere.

Xiii, 130 pages. 24 cm. First edition. With 16 pages of plates. The Library of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America houses the largest and most comprehensive collection of Judaica and Hebraica in the Western Hemisphere; since its establishment one hundred years ago, seekers of knowledge throughout the world have availed themselves of its vast resources. It was not through mere chance, however, that this magnificent collection of manuscripts and rare books came into being. Its existence is owed to the efforts of farsighted Seminary presidents, diligent librarians and supportive members of the community. Leaders such as Solomon Schechter, Cyrus Adler, Louis Finkelstein and Gershon D. Cohen understood that without an adequate library no teaching program of higher Jewish learning could proceed. In turn, they attracted educated librarian-scholars such as Alexander Marx, Nahum Sarna and Menaham Schmelzer, who diligently organized the Library's official treasures, making them available not only to faculty and students, but to the general public as well. Moreover, the tradition of concerned philanthropy established in the past by Jacob Schiff, Louis Marshall, Felix Warburg and Judge Mayer Sulzberger, is now being carried on by generous friends of the Library. As we stand on the threshold of the Library's second century, its objectives are as clear today as they were one hundred years ago; to enable men and women to study, teach and observe the tenets of their Faith.

(FT) Publishers cloth. Folio. 116 pages. 34 cm. First edition. In Hebrew and English. Bound in red cloth with gilt lettering, in illustrated dustjacket, housed in boards and faux leather, inserted into case made of boards with printed wraps. “The Ketuba: Jewish marriage contracts through the ages. ” Written by David Davidovitch, with a foreword by Cecil Roth, and designed by Avigail and Itshak Yoresh. This exceedingly detailed volume both outlines the community and rabbinic history and practice of the Ketuba, with 18 facsimile full page color illustrated pastedown reproductions, as well as dozens more black and white illustrations, also showing other facets of marriage rites, including contemporary photographs and illuminated manuscripts depicting the elaborate weddings of Yemenite Jews. The Ketubbah; “a document recording the financial obligations which the husband undertakes toward his wife in respect of, and consequent to, their marriage, obligations which in principle are imposed on him by law. … Most Jewish communities have followed the custom of decorating the ketubbah. An Ashkenazi ketubbah from Krems. Austria, dated 1392, shows that illumination was usual among Ashkenazi communities during the Middle Ages. However, the best-known illuminated ketubbot, which date from the 16th century onward, were from Italy, certain Sephardi communities, and from Near and Far Eastern Jewry. Richly illuminated ketubbot, which date from the 17th and 18th centuries, are from Italy, Corfu, the Balkans, and Gibraltar. They are written on parchment and the text is usually bordered by an illuminated frame, depicting a variety of decorative themes in many bright colors. The frame, which is sometimes divided into a diptych, is often illustrated with biblical or mythological motifs, portraits of the bride and groom in contemporary costume, family coats of arms, symbols representing conjugal bliss, and even nude figures. Typical Jewish symbols were used, such as the hands forming the priestly blessing, a sign that the groom was from a family of kohanim, or a ewer and basin indicating a levite. Sometimes, the biblical figures represented in the ketubbah symbolize the bride or groom's name; thus a scene from the life of Joseph might mean that the groom's name was Joseph, a scene from the Book of Ruth that the bride's name was Ruth. Dutch Sephardi ketubbot of the same period are distinguished by their delicate ornamental engraving. They were mainly executed on parchment and are in the best Dutch copper-engraving tradition. An outstanding example is a 1658 Rotterdam ketubbah, executed by Shalom Italia, a copper engraver from Mantua who emigrated to Holland. This ketubbah is rich in biblical motifs. Another famous copperengraved ketubbah, dating from the late 17th century, is decorated with flowers and allegorical figures in the typical Dutch-Jewish contemporary manner. The border contains the date 1693, commemorating the year of the death of the renowned Amsterdam rabbi, Isaac Aboab de Fonseca. ” (EJ 2008) Subjects: Jewish illumination of books and manuscripts.

First edition. Edited by Joel Shatzky and Michael Taub; with a foreword by Daniel Walden; Emmanuel S. Nelson, advisory editor. “This reference book includes alphabetically arranged entries for more than 75 Jewish-American novelists whose major works were largely written after World War II. Included are entries for both well-known and relatively obscure novelists, many of whom are just becoming established as significant literary figures. While the volume profiles major canonical figures such as Saul Bellow, Norman Mailer, and Bernard Malamud, it also aims to be more inclusive than other works on contemporary Jewish-American writers. Thus there are entries for gay and lesbian novelists such as Lev Raphael and Judith Katz, whose works challenge the more orthodox definitions of Jewish religious and cultural traditions; Art Speigelman, whose controversial ‘Maus’ established a new genre by combining elements of the comic book and the conventional novel; and newcomers such as Steve Stern and Max Apple, who have become more prominent within the last decade. Each entry includes a brief biography, a discussion of major works and themes, an overview of the novelist's critical reception, and a bibliography of primary and secondary sources. A thoughtful introduction summarizes Jewish-American fiction after World War II, and a selected, general bibliography lists additional sources for information. ” (Publishers description) Subjects: American fiction - Jewish authors - Bio-bibliography - Dictionaries.

He visited Erez Israel in 1867, and after two years in Odessa, returned to Jerusalem in 1871. There he began research for a history of the rabbis and scholars of Jerusalem, Toledot Hakhmei Yerushalayim. Frumkin's account of his first visit to Jerusalem, Massa Even Shemu'el (1871), gives important source material on conditions in Erez Israel at the time. Returning to Lithuania, Frumkin was ordained a rabbi and took a rabbinical post at Ilukste, Latvia. After the 1881 pogroms, Frumkin participated, representing Hovevei Zion, in the consultations held in Germany to consider the plight of Russian Jewry. There he advocated settlement in Erez Israel as a solution, opposing emigration to the United States. With the financial support of Emil Lachman, a wealthy Berlin Jew, he bought land in Petah Tikvah, built the first house there, and began a heroic ten-year period as a farmer-scholar, braving malaria and other dangers, establishing a talmud torah and a small yeshivah, and persuading more settlers to move there from Yehud.

It describes how they founded and kept flourishing the oldest Jewishcommunity in North America which eventually became the greatest in the world."."

Simon Dubnow (1860-1941), “Russian Jewish historian and ideologue of Jewish Diaspora nationalism. … In 1896, Dubnow published his first history of the Jews, Vseobshchaia istoriiaevreev (A General History of the Jews) based on German Jewish textbooks but structured according to a sequence of cultural ‘hegemonies’ exerted by one or two key Diaspora communities in any given period. This textbook, rewritten and expanded several times, had a huge impact on Russian Jewish youth and the reading public, culminating in Dubnow’s 10-volume World History of the Jewish People, which appeared in German, Russian, Hebrew, and other languages in the 1920s and 1930s. Dubnow labeled his historiographical approach ‘sociological, ’ inasmuch as it emphasized how Jewish social institutions served as substitutes for a state. These quasi-political forms were a manifestation of Judaism’s ability to transcend the usual physical requirements of nationhood and thus, in Dubnow’s theory, exemplified the subjective nature of national identity, an identity essentially based on feelings of unity and common historical memory. ” (YIVO Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe; Dubnow, Simon) Subjects: Jews – History.

Atiya. “The purpose of this work is to introduce the student to modern standard Arabic with concentration on the style employed in formal documents and international treaties. Volume I consists of 38 Basic Units and 24 Supplementary Texts, presented in unvoweled Arabic; each of the Basic Units is accompanied by a Vocabulary and Notes (completely voweled) and a series of exercises. Volume II comprises a Key (i. e. a translation) to the Basic Units and Supplementary Texts, plus cumulative vocabularies, English-Arabic and Arabic-English. The work was developed under a contract with the U. S. Office of Education. ” (Review; ‘Linguistic Reporter’, Vol. 8, 1966) “Dr. Menahem Mansoor, Joseph L. Baron Professor Emeritus of Hebrew in the Department of Hebrew and Semitic Studies, died on Sunday, October 21, 2001 at the age of ninety. Menahem was born in Port-Said, Egypt, on August 4, 1911. At the early age of thirteen, he was sent by his parents to Palestine so he could receive a Hebrew education at the Herzliah High School in Tel Aviv. He continued his studies at the University of London and Trinity College, Dublin, where in 1944 he earned a Ph. D. In Biblical Studies and Semitic Languages. During World War II he served with the British Ministry of Information on the Middle East and, later, as Education Officer in Jerusalem. After the establishment of the State of Israel, he was the Chief Interpreter in the British Embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel, serving as a liaison between the embassy and Israeli Government offices. On November 29, 1951, he married Claire D. Kramer. Three years later he was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue his research on ancient Hebrew manuscripts at Johns Hopkins University. He also taught at Baltimore Hebrew College. In 1955 he was called to fill the chair of the newly established UW-Madison Department of Hebrew and Semitic Studies. He served as chairman of the department for twenty two years and led its development into one of this country’s leading centers of Hebrew Studies. During this time he also developed the first US correspondence courses in Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, and Jewish Cultural History for the UW-Extension. Menahem was among the first scholars associated with the Dead Sea Scrolls and made important contributions to establishing their meaning and their significance. He published the first translation of the Thanksgiving Hymns that were among the scrolls, and in 1964 published one of the earliest books on the Dead Sea Scrolls. Among his other major publications are: The Book of Directions to the Duties of the Heart (translation and critical introduction), a sixteen volume chronological, biographical and documentary Political and Diplomatic History of the Arab World, and An Introduction to Jewish History and Thought. He also authored a dozen textbooks in Hebrew and Arabic as well as two audio-based courses in Hebrew and Arabic for Linguaphone. ” (Memorial Resolution of the Faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison; The death of Professor Emeritus Menaham Mansoor; 2002).

  199. Roth, Cecil. JEWISH ART: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY. New York; McGraw-Hill, 1961. Publishers cloth. 4to. 971 pages. 28 cm. First edition. A comprehensive history of Jewish art, from antiquity to the present, a volume still considered definitive. The first edition includes 457 plates, many are in color. Written by Cecil Roth (Bezalel; 1899–1970), Jewish historian; editor in chief of the first edition of the Encyclopaedia Judaica. “Roth's edited volume appeared in Hebrew in 1956/57 (Tel Aviv: Masadah) and in English in 1961 (New York, McGraw-Hill), and was slightly revised by Bezalel Narkiss in 1971 (London: Vallentine, Mitchell). This impressive collection of twenty essays includes articles by such greats as Roth himself, M. Avi-Yonah, Rachel Wischnitzer, L. A. Mayer, A. M. Haberman, Alfred Werner, and Franz Landsberger. Covering what was known of Jewish artistic creation in the late 1950's, this volume was a landmark, each author setting his or her distinctive specialty and tone to each article. Collectively, this volume was intended to tell the story of the art of a nation, from its Biblical origins through the most contemporary of art by Jews or about Judaism. Even the circular plan of the Galilean village of Nahalal is included in this volume, together with Canaanite goddesses, ancient synagogues, glass from Islamic lands, printed Hebrew books, and the paintings of Raphael and Moses Soyer. Just as Italians, Britons, and Americans have national art forms, so too, argues this volume, do the Jews. This is despite the widely-held notion that Jews don't do art owing to their religion, a conception that this volume comes to set aside. In fact, Roth opens his volume with an apologia: ‘The conception of Jewish Art may appear to some to be a contradiction in terms’ (p.11). The normalization of the Jews, particularly their national normalization, required that they have a national art, like all of the nations. Roth's book is in many ways the Jewish counterpart to the well-known introduction to the history of art (now multi-authored), Gardner's Art Through The Ages. It is the one-volume statement of the Jewish contribution to the world of art. ” (Review by Steven Fine) Subjects: Jewish art - History. Hinges shaken, no dustjacket, otherwise clean and fresh.

Greenstone; with a foreword by Henry S. Morais. Includes "A critical and hermeneutical introduction to the Pentateuch, " by S. D. Luzzatto: p. [93]-152. The author, Sabato Morais was an “American rabbi; born at Leghorn, Italy, April 13, 1823; died at Philadelphia Nov. 11, 1897. The Morais family came originally from Portugal, being probably among the large number of Jews who fled thence from the Inquisition. At the time of Sabato's birth Italy was in the thick of her great struggle for freedom … he formed a close friendship with Joseph Mazzini; and that patriot's struggle for Italian freedom was warmly seconded by Morais. … In 1850, owing to the withdrawal of Isaac Leeser, the pulpit of the Mickve Israel congregation at Philadelphia, Pa., became vacant, and Morais was an applicant for the post. He arrived in Philadelphia on March 17, 1851, and was elected April 13 following, the synagogue services in the interval being conducted by him. … When, in 1867, Maimonides College was established in Philadelphia, Morais was made professor of the Bible and of Biblical literature; and he held the chair during the six years that the college existed. For a number of years thereafter he felt the urgent need of an institution for the training of Jewish ministers on historical and traditional lines; and the declarations of the Pittsburg Conference in 1885 urged him to immediate action. After a considerable agitation of the subject he succeeded, in conjunction with a few others, in establishing (Jan., 1886) the Jewish Theological Seminary at New York. He was at once made president of the faculty and professor of Bible, holding both posts until his death. Unquestionably the establishment of the seminary constitutes Morais' most lasting influence upon Judaism in America. The directors of that body have fittingly recognized his memory by naming the chair of Biblical literature and exegesis ‘the Sabato Morais professorship. ’ In 1887 the University of Pennsylvania conferred upon him the honorary degree of doctor of laws, he being the first Jew so honored by that institution. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) Subjects: Hebrew literature - Italy.

The 500-page supplement contains information on over 2, 000 bibliographies published between 1965 and 1975. In his introduction Shunami notes that this number compares with that for the first hundred years of the Wissenchaft des Judentums. He comments on the rapid growth of bibliographies relating to the Holocaust and to the State of Israel. On the other hand, the small number of entries related to Hebrew printing is a reflection of the decline of study of this subject with little extra interest having been aroused by the 500th anniversary of Hebrew printing. There is also a decrease in entries relating to private collections, reflecting a decline in major Jewish book collectors. Shunami also decries the shortage of Jewish bibliographers. “ (EJ 2008; Bibliography). Subjects: Bibliography - Bibliography - Jewish literature. Bibliography - Bibliography - Jews.

Catalog of modern Hebrew works (1789-1890). Compiled by William Zeitlin, a “Russian scholar and bibliographer; born at Homel, government of Moghilef, about the middle of the nineteenth century. He is known especially as the author of ‘Kiryat Sefer, ’ or ‘Bibliotheca Hebraica Post-Mendelssohniana’ (Leipsic, 1891-95), a bibliographical dictionary of modern Hebrew literature from the beginning of Mendelssohn's epoch until 1890. The compilation of this work occupied Zeitlin for twenty years.

"Reprinted from the Bulletin of the New York public library of September 1933.” Riva Di Trento, a “small town on the Lake of Guarda, under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Trent. Christoforo Madruz, Cardinal of Trent and Archbishop of Brixen, granted in 1558 the privilege of printing Hebrew books to Joseph Ottolengo, a German rabbi and school-director, then living at Cremona. The actual printer was Jacob Marcaria, a local physician. After his death in 1562 the activity of the press of Riva di Trento ceased. Altogether thirty-four works were published in the period 1558 to 1562, most of them bearing the coat of arms of Cardinal Madruz. The first Hebrew book printed at Riva was the ‘Halakot’ of Alfasi in three folio volumes; and the general tendency of the press was to produce halakic works, as the ‘Mordekai, ’ the novellæ of Rabbi Nissim, and two editions of the Mishnah. Besides these, two editions of the Pentateuch were issued, one with the Five Megillot and the other with the Targum and Rashi. The print was of an exceptionally clear type; and the fact that all the books were produced under the patronage of a cardinal of the Church is very significant. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia).

Freimann's handwritten cards, representing the material culled from all major and minor collections of Hebrew manuscripts, were photographically reproduced after his death as Union Catalog of Hebrew Manuscripts and Their Location (1964). Between 1900 and 1922 Freimann was the editor of the journal Zeitschrift fuer Hebraische Bibliographie, in which many of his bibliographical articles appeared. ” (EJ 2008) Subjects: Printing - history.

Part of the author’s series of works on the history of Hebrew printing, Toledot ha-Defus ha-Ivri. Bernhard Friedberg (Bernhard, Hayyim Dov; 1876–1961), was a “scholar and bibliographer. Friedberg was born in Cracow, and in 1900 moved to Frankfurt, where he worked for the publisher and bookseller Isaac Kauffmann. In 1904 he set up his own firm and by 1906 had published two catalogs; in the same year he and J. Saenger founded the publishing house of Saenger and Friedberg. In 1910 the partnership broke up, and Friedberg entered the diamond trade, moving to Antwerp. When the Nazis occupied Belgium, he lost his valuable library and all his papers. In 1946 he settled in Tel Aviv, continuing to deal in diamonds but with his heart in books and his bibliographical and genealogical research. Beginning in 1896, Friedberg published in Hebrew a number of biographies, e. G., on Joseph Caro (1896), Shabbetai Kohen (1898), and Nathan Spira (1899); family histories, e. G., Schor (1901), Landau (1905), and Horowitz (1911, 19282); and a study on the old Jewish cemetery of Cracow, Luhot Zikkaron (1897, 19042, 1969). Friedberg's first bibliographical effort was a history of Hebrew printing in Cracow, Ha-Defus ha-Ivri be-Cracow (1900), followed by a similar study on Lublin, Le-Toledot ha-Defus ha-Ivri be-Lublin (1901). In 1932 he began publishing a series of works on the history of Hebrew printing, Toledot ha-Defus ha-Ivri; the series included volumes on Poland (1932, 1950); on Italy, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, and the Orient (1934, 1956); on Central Europe (1935); and on Western Europe (1937). His greatest achievement was his bibliographical lexicon Beit Eked Sefarim (1 vol., 1928–31; 4 vols., 1951–562, the second edition listing Hebrew books published by 1950). Though Friedberg's works are not always accurate, they are indispensable bibliographical reference books. ” (EJ 2008) Subjects: Printing, Hebrew - Poland -History. Printing, Hebrew.

Publishers cloth. 4to. 61, 7 pages. 29 cm. First edition. Number 142/200. ‘The Earliest Illustrated Haggadah, printed by Gershom Cohen at Prague. Discovered and described by L. Goldschmidt. Translated from the German manuscript by Immanuel Goldschmidt. 200 numbered copies printed in Great Britain. No 142.’ With 7 full page plates at rear, protected by tissue guards. Original blue cloth with gold lettering on spine. Gold top edge. An account of the Prague Haggadah with details of its publishing and composition history, as deduced from two slightly dissimilar editions. “The continuous record of the illustrated printed Haggadah begins with the Prague edition of 1526. This magnificent work, with its profuse marginal cuts and decorations and its superb borders, is among the finest productions of the 16th-century press. The beauty of the work lies above all in the disposition of the type and the exquisite balance of the pages. Its most remarkable feature is three pages with engraved borders in monumental gothic style. The printers and publishers were Gershom Solomon Kohen Katz and his brother Gronem (Geronim). The artistic work was apparently executed partly by Hayyim Sha’or (Schwartz), Gershom Kohen's collaborator, who sometimes signed his initials, and partly by a gentile assistant. Some of the decorative features were derived from non-Jewish works, including the Nuremberg chronicle of 1484. In recent years the Prague Haggadah has been reproduced repeatedly in facsimile. The cuts and illustrations in the publication were long imitated, deteriorating progressively as the years went by. The Prague edition of 1556 retained some of the original elements but this was not the case with the one published in 1590 or with other commonplace editions that continued to appear in Prague and elsewhere down to the mid-18th century. An interesting new edition, apparently by Hayyim Sha’or, appeared in Augsburg in 1534. This, however, had little influence and only one complete copy is preserved. ” (EJ, 2007; Haggadah, Passover) Lazarus Goldschmidt (1871–1950), was a “scholar, bibliophile, and translator of the Talmud into German. ” (EJ, 2007).

By Abraham Meir Habermann (1901–1980), a “bibliographer and scholar of medieval Hebrew literature. Born at Zurawno (Galicia), Habermann from 1928 was librarian at the Schocken Library in Berlin. He immigrated to Palestine in 1934 and served as director of the Schocken Library in Jerusalem until 1967. From 1957 he taught medieval literature at Tel Aviv University (professor, 1969) and taught at the Graduate Library School of the Hebrew University. He was editor of the department of bibliography (Jewish printers) for the Encyclopaedia Hebraica and the department of medieval Hebrew poetry for the first edition of the Encyclopaedia Judaica. Habermann began his study of medieval literature in 1925, specializing in the Ashkenazi piyyut from the time of R. Ephraim ben Jacob of Bonn. A prolific writer, his books include Ha-Madpisim Benei Soncino (1933): Gevilim; Me'ah Sippurei Aggadah (1942); Ha-Genizah (1944); Toledot ha-Sefer ha-Ivri (1945); Ha-Piyyut (1946); Ateret Renanim, piyyutim and songs for Sabbath and festivals (1967); Ha-Sefer ha-Ivri be-Hitpattekuto (1968); Sha'arei Sefarim Ivriyyim (1969); and Toledot ha-Piyyut ve-ha-Shirah (1970), which is the first attempt at a survey of the history of Hebrew piyyut and poetry and its development in various cultural centers from post-biblical times to the Haskalah period. Habermann edited and compiled such diverse medieval works as: Piyyutei Rashi (1941); Selihot u-Fizmonim of R. Gershom Me'or ha-Golah (1944; new printing, 2004); Gezerot Ashkenaz ve-‘Arefat (1946); Ma Berot Immanu'el ha-Romi (1950); Studies of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Edah ve-Edut (1952), and Megillot Midbar Yehudah (1959). Shortly after his death, the Habermann Institute for Literary Research was created in Lod (Lydda), Israel. In 1983 Z.
