Philo must have obtained this education in Greek schools.

6. • (Emden, Jacob) Cohen, Mortimer J. JACOB EMDEN: A MAN OF CONTROVERSY. Philadelphia: Dropsie College. 1937. Cloth. 8vo. 336 pages. First edition. SUBJECT (S): Emden, Jacob, 1697-1776. Emden (1697-1776) was a “rabbi, halakhic authority, kabbalist, and anti-Shabbatean polemicist [and] was regarded as one of the outstanding scholars of his generation. ” “He inherited his father's interest in secular studies, his dissociation from the Ashkenazi method of study (pilpul) and customs, his stormy, independent, and uncompromising character, and his devotion to the campaign against the Shabbateans and their sympathizers. In addition, he possessed a fine literary talent, a critical tendency and a knowledge unusual for his age of general non-halakhic Jewish literature. He was also familiar with sciences and languages (German, Dutch, Latin). Despite his distinguished descent and his remarkable talmudic attainments, Emden occupied no official position, with the exception of a few years as rabbi of Emden (in Germany, 1728–1733). This made it possible for him to be exceptionally critical toward the society and the tradition of his time. He was more on guard about anything that he considered hillul ha-Shem (bringing the name of the Jew into disrepute) than for the good name of the rabbinate and of the community. He made extensive use of the private printing press he founded in Altona to disseminate his views. As a result, because of his views on a number of issues, both personal and communal, he became a figure of contention. ”(Samet, EJ) Ex library with number on spine and front end paper, bookplate, and an unobtrusive blank pocket on the rear pastedown.

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.

Goldziher, born in Szekesfehervar (Stuhlweissenburg) , studied Arabic manuscripts at Leyden and Vienna, and traveled in Egypt, Palestine, and Syria before becoming a lecturer at the University of Budapest in 1872. As his university teaching was unpaid until he became a professor in 1904, he earned his living as secretary of the Budapest Neolog Jewish community for 30 years. In 1900 he succeeded D. Kaufmann as professor of religious philosophy at the Budapest Rabbinical Seminary. Goldziher was elected a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences long before his appointment to a professorship in the university. He was respected by Muslim scholars and received queries from them; he was invited to lecture at Fuad University in Cairo but did not accept the position. When the Jewish National Home was established in Palestine after World War I, it was hoped that Goldziher would use his influence in the Muslim world to help bring about a rapprochement between Jews and Arabs, but he was far from being a Zionist, and refused to act on this matter. Goldziher was the first to describe critically and comprehensibly the history of Islamic oral tradition (hadith ) and the various Islamic sects; he published many studies, still valuable, on pre-Islamic and Islamic culture, the religious and legal history of the Arabs, and their ancient and modern poetry.

RABBINICS

Zolkva (Ukraine), Nidpas etsel Gershon ben Ze'ev Volf Segal Literis, 1803. Cloth, 4to (large, 37 cm), 98, 9, 8 leaves [i.e., 196, 18, 16 pages]. ; 37 cm. Subject(s): Responsa -- 1040-1600. OCLC lists 7 copies worldwide. JTSA keeps their copy in their Rare Book Room. Asher Ben Jehiel (also known as Asheri and Rosh; c. 1250-1327), was a talmudist. "His first teachers were his father, one of the Hasidei Ashkenaz, who was a follower of Judah b. Samuel he-Hasid, and his elder brother. He spent some time in France, apparently in Troyes and then lived in Cologne and Coblenz. From there he moved to Worms, where his teacher Meir b. Baruch of Rothenburg had been appointed rabbi in 1281. Meir esteemed his pupil, and appointed him a member of the local bet-din. After the imprisonment of Meir, Asher became the acknowledged leader of German Jewry and headed the unsuccessful efforts to obtain his master's release, toward which he was prepared to contribute a considerable portion of his assets. He distinguished himself for his activities during the period of the Rindfleisch massacres (1298), and for his decisions on matters arising from the resulting disruption of family and communal life. Fearing a similar fate to that of Meir of Rothenburg, Asher left Germany in 1303. The following year, he reached Barcelona, via north Italy and Provence, where he was welcomed with great honor by Solomon b. Abraham Adret. In 1305 he accepted the position of rabbi in Toledo. His son, Judah, relates that shortly thereafter, Asher turned down a request of the German authorities that he return to his native country, for which they were prepared to provide an imperial letter of safe-conduct and an escort of 50 soldiers.Asher was drawn into the contemporary conflict concerning the study of philosophy. In Provence he had found only "isolated individuals" engaged in exclusive study of the Torah, which fact he attributed to the widespread study of philosophy. From Barcelona he sent a letter of encouragement to Abba Mari Astruc, a leader of the opponents of philosophy. Alive to the danger of discord, he proposed an intercommunal conference to reconcile the opposing views (Minhat Kena'ot, 51). When Solomon Adret proposed a ban on the study of philosophy by anyone under the age of 25, Asher, already in Toledo, influenced the local leaders to support this ban. He criticized those who used positions of influence at court for their own advantage. He similarly opposed customs which had been influenced by the Christian environment, such as, granting equal rights of inheritance to husband and wife and bequeathing the whole estate to the oldest son, as was the custom among the nobility; chaining of debtors; and compelling a husband to grant his wife a divorce on her declaration of her unwillingness to live with him. His vast influence and moral stature enabled him to overcome the difficulties which he encountered in those activities, and his spiritual influence was acknowledged even by the Castilian queen, Maria de Molina.His responsa sometimes reflect the modesty and humility that typified the German school, and at others, the firmness and authority of one speaking in the name of the supreme political and judicial body of Spanish Jewry. When the rabbi of Valencia insisted on his view in defiance of accepted practice and the opinion of Asher, the latter threatened him with capital punishment, if all the other deterrents enumerated in a letter to one of the scholars of the community should prove of no avail (Responsa, 107, 6). Despite his reservations and doubts as to the right of the rabbis to impose capital punishment, he nonetheless permitted them to act according to the custom prevalent in Spain, and consented to sentences of mutilation, particularly in the case of informers. Asher introduced into Spain the system of study of the tosafists and tried to establish a German minhag. He is regarded as one of the outstanding halakhic authorities who put the final seal to the work of the German and French codifiers, joining to it the Spanish halakhah. True to the methods of the tosafists, he subjected the statements of the rishonim and geonim to a critical examination and did not hesitate to disagree with them whenever talmudic sources did not support their view and conclusions. Virtually all the communities of Spain referred their problems to him and students flocked to his yeshivah from all Europe, including Russia. When he encountered matters not specifically prohibited in the Torah, Asher was prepared to abandon his own opinion in the face of strong opposition, particularly for the sake of peace, but he never hesitated from taking a strong stand against undesirable developments in the communal life. In answer to a complaint that members of distinguished families had not been appointed as cantors, he stated forcibly that neither distinguished descent, nor the possession of a pleasant voice should be the criterion, but only moral standing (ibid., 4:22).His negative attitude toward philosophy did not extend to science generally and he encouraged Isaac b. Joseph Israeli to write his Yesod Olam. He was familiar with German law and Spanish common law but his knowledge of Arabic was limited to the spoken language. Having lost all his property in Germany, he lived under conditions of financial stress and his son notes that his father's assets at the time of his death were insufficient for the execution of his will. Asher nevertheless continued in Spain his ancestral custom of tithing all his income.… In 1965 the Institute for Research in Jewish Law of the Hebrew University published a comprehensive index to Asher's responsa. The index includes lists of all biblical, talmudic, and post-talmudic sources quoted in the response" (Encyclopaedia Hebraica in EJ, 1972).

Between 1862 and 1866 he made several long visits to the hasidic rabbi of Radomsk, Solomon Rabinowicz…. A major part of his literary work (mainly in German but with a small amount in Hebrew) was devoted to the defense of Hasidism and an explanation of hasidic doctrines and Kabbalah. …In his work he defended traditional Judaism against modern Bible criticism and scientific materialism. At the same time, he tried to find confirmation for new insights in philosophy and science in Jewish religious literature, particularly in the writings of Hayyim b. Moses Attar, M. H. Luzzatto, and of Habad Hasidism. Marcus was one of the few Orthodox Jews in Germany who totally adopted Hasidism in theory and practice…. From 1898 to 1899 Marcus edited Krakauer Juedische Zeitung, a paper he published as a vehicle for his ideas. He became an enthusiastic supporter of Theodor Herzl and his Judenstaat… thus becoming one of the pioneers of religious Zionism, though later he turned toward the anti-Zionist Agudat Israel.

Complete in two volumes. SUBJECT (S): Legends, Jewish. SERISES: Kovets 1. Mi-ne kedem -- kovets 2. Agadot `am. Berdichevsky (1865-1921) , also know as Ben-Gorion, was born in Podalia, to a long line of rabbis. In his teens, he read the Haskalah writers, and this conflict between modernism and tradition informed his entire literary career. It also caused deep disagreements with teachers and family members. He began to be published in 1888, writing both fiction and non-fiction. In 1890, he moved to Russia, and was acquainted with David Frischmann; in 1892 he moved to Germany. In Berlin, he solidified a philosophy of personal and intellectual freedom in the face of "stultifying" tradition. His writing attacked any already-established position, including the Haskalah and Zionism, and demanded an expansion of the Jewish literary canon. Though a later trip back to Russia, and witnessing the realities of Jewish life there, slightly moderated his polemics, Berdichevsky wrote much of the same, though he also branched out to collections of legends and Jewish history. It is of no surprise that his readers were divided along generational lines; the younger readers flocked to his work, while older critics rejected his ideas. (Almagor, EJ) Gilt titles.

Through a physician, Aaron Solomon Gumpertz, he became a friend and admirer of Moses Mendelssohn, whom he encouraged to publish his first philosophical work. Mendelssohn was the inspiration for Lessing's Nathan der Weise, his last play, and once more a plea for toleration. Based on the parable of the three rings, adapted from Boccaccio's Decameron, the play presents Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as three sons of a benevolent father who has given each an identical ring, although each one claims that his ring alone is authentic. Nathan is made the spokesman for the aspirations of the Enlightenment: tolerance, brotherhood, and love of humanity. ” (Graetz, EJ) Ex library.

He also received a sound Jewish education under his relative, Zacharias Frankel. Although he studied medicine at Vienna and Padua, he devoted himself mainly to literature. The patriotic flavor of Frankl's first collection of ballads, Das Habsburgerlied, brought him a reward from Emperor Francis I. It was followed by Morgenlaendische Sagen, a volume of poems on Jewish themes, and by the epic Christoforo Colombo (1836) , for which he was made an honorary citizen of Genoa, the explorer's birthplace. In 1838 Frankl was appointed secretary and archivist of the Vienna Jewish community. The post enabled him to publish various works of Jewish interest, including a history of the Jews in Vienna, but he really made his name as editor, from 1842, of the Sonntagsblaetter, which brought him into the circle of Austria's literary elite. In later years he was to publish studies of such of his new acquaintances as the dramatist Franz Grillparzer and the poet Nikolaus Lenau, but he also encouraged new writers, notably Moritz Hartmann and Leopold Kompert. ” (EJ, 2007) Bookplate, tape mark on spine, pages a little spotty, good condition.

KAUFMANN, FRITZ MORDECAI (1888–1921) , German essayist and writer on Yiddish folklore. Born in Eschweiler, Kaufmann studied medicine and history. After the war he published Vier Essais ueber ostjuedische Dichtung und Kultur (1919) , the pamphlet Das juedische Volkslied (1919) , and the anthology Die schoensten Lieder der Ostjuden (1920). He then began a German translation of Mendele Mokher Seforim's Yiddish works but committed suicide before he had completed it. Although he accepted Jewish nationalism, Kaufmann opposed Zionism's emphasis on Palestine and its negation of the Diaspora. He believed in Alljudentum, the strengthening of Jewish culture everywhere, especially in the Yiddish-speaking communities. There, in his opinion, Jewish life had not degenerated as it had among the Central and Western European intellectuals who had lost their Jewish roots. Kaufmann sought particularly to instill in his readers a love for the Yiddish language, literature, folklore, and customs. [Sol Liptzin].

SUBJECT (S): Jewish literature – history and criticism; Jewish preaching. Zunz (1794-1886) , born and educated in Germany, was a well-known historian. An heir to European Enlightenment, he was a founded of the idea of the “Science of Judaism. ” In that vein, he fruitlessly hoped that Jewish studies would be taught in universites as a regular academic discipline, and that he'd be able to do the teaching. He believed that Jewish literature and learning was part of the broader scope of human affairs, including the sciences, and should not be shut up merely in discussions of religious matters. The first edition of Die gottesdienstlichen appeared in 1832, and was the culmination of several years' study. For his seventieth birthday, a foundation was set up to fund Zunz's and other similar scholarship. He continued to work until 1874, when his wife's death left him seriously depressed.
