  1. · [Leipzig: Commercial Law; Leipziger Juden-Ordnung]. DER CHURFÜRSTL. SÄCHS. HANDELSTADT LEIPZIGK KAUF- UND HANDELS-RECHT. [Leipzig]; Christolph Günther, 1683. Boards bound with Latin missal with musical notation. 16mo. (4) , 132, 4 pages. Only edition. In German. A compendium of regulations of the City of Leipzig. Of special interest are the edicts concerning Jews: "Leipziger Juden-Ordnung de anno 1682." The relationship between this city in Saxony and the Jews is an anomaly. On the one hand, Jews were banished from Saxony in 1430 - (it took three centuries for them to be readmitted to Leipzig) . On the other hand, on account of the seasonal Leipzig Fair, the number of Jewish merchants present in the City would swell to the point that these visitors were formally authorized to conduct gatherings in their own prayer-rooms ("Judenschulen") . Indeed, permitted to attend the Fair were not only German Jews, but Jews of Eastern Europe as well. In the present text, Johann-Georg III, Duke of Saxony, mandates several laws concerning Jewish tradesmen and the nature of Jewish participation in the Fair. In order to attend, the Jew required attestation to his professional honesty ("ein Ehrlicher Handelsmann") (par. 1) ; he was forbidden to lodge in the suburbs (par. 2) ; and at all times, he must be in possession of his various individual passes (pars. 3-6) . Also, legal-clauses are addressed to the wives, children and servants of the Jewish tradesmen visiting (pars.10-12) . Of peculiar note: Jewish musicians were barred from trading altogether (par. 21) . See JE, Vol. VII, pp. 673-4. Subjects: German Law. Books before 1700. OCLC lists 14 copies worldwide.

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 universities 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. 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.

In German.  Leopold Zunz "was the man who symbolized the 'Science of Judaism'; he was the first to lay down a detailed program for it, and his works were the first which in practice contained the methods of research which it was to adopt. By his idealism and humanistic fervor and by his ambition to introduce the Jewish cultural heritage into general humanism by and through scientific study of Judaism, Zunz became the symbol of the whole of the 'Science of Judaism. '" (Benzion Dinur, EJ) Literaturgeschichte der synagogalen Poesie marks the conclusion of Zunz's pioneering efforts in the field of synagogue poetry. The work, based on research of 500 manuscripts, records the history of the paytanim and their works up to 1540. His intention was to present an internal history of this literature, but he did not achieve the fulfillment of this plan. His bent for bibliography and research was stronger than his talent for giving form to historical concepts. SUBJECT(S): Hebrew poetry -- History and criticism. Judaism -- Liturgy.

Title translates as: “Additions and Corrections to my Bibliographic Handbook of the Literature for Hebrew Language Studies, Leipzig 1859.” Moritz Steinschneider (1816-1907) was a respected Austrian-Jewish Bibliographer, expert Talmudist, and established secular scientist. He was an important librarian at the Bodleian Library in London as well as that of the Royal Library in Berlin. “It is a characteristic feature of Steinschneider's vast literary activity that he chose fields far removed from that of theology proper, e. G. , mathematics, philology, natural history, and medicine, endeavoring t? Ereby to display the part which the Jews had taken in the general history of civilization ("Kulturgeschichte") . Thus while Zunz had laid the foundations of Jewish science, Steinschneider completed many essential parts of the structure. He was the first to give a systematic survey of Jewish literature down to the end of the eighteenth century, and was the first also to publish catalogues of the Hebrew books and manuscripts which are found in the great public libraries of Europe. The gigantic Bodleian catalogue laid the foundation of his reputation as the greatest Jewish bibliographer. This and the catalogues of the libraries of Leyden, Munich, Hamburg, and Berlin, as well as the twenty-one volumes of his "Hebräische Bibliographie, " form an inexhaustible mine of information on all branches of Jewish history and literature. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) .

The Society, therefore, commissioned all the different types of literary products likely to appear in print, such as scholarly works and periodicals, novels, short stories, plays, texts illustrated by modern artists, and reprints of interesting rare books. The texts were chosen from Jewish literature of all periods and languages. Leading master-printers selected the printing type, size, and paper of each individual publication in order to design an external appearance in accordance with its contents.

The son of Elijah Klatzkin , a prominent rabbinical scholar, who gave him a thorough education in all branches of traditional Jewish studies. At the age of 18, Klatzkin went to Germany, first to Frankfurt on the Main and then to Marburg, where he studied philosophy under Hermann Cohen . He received his doctorate from the University of Berne in 1912. In the following years Klatzkin was active in Germany as a writer for Hebrew periodicals, including Ha-Zeman, Ha-Shilo'a? , and Ha-Tekufah, and as editor of Die Welt , the organ of the Zionist Organization (1909–11) , and later in Heidelberg, of the Freie Zionistische Blaetter. From 1912 to 1915 he was director of the Jewish National Fund in Cologne. From 1915 to 1919 he edited the Swiss Bulletin Juif, which covered world events of special relevance to Jews during World War I and established the publishing firm Al ha-Mishmar, which issued a series of books on Jewish problems in French and German. In Berlin Klatzkin founded another publishing house, Eshkol, and continued writing for the Jewish press. In 1924 he and his lifelong friend Nahum Goldmann initiated the Encyclopaedia Judaica, of which ten volumes (to the article "Lyra") appeared between 1928 and 1934. Two volumes of a parallel Hebrew edition, En? Iklopedyah Yisre'elit, were issued in 1929–32. Klatzkin acted as editor in chief in cooperation with leading Jewish scholars. Although the advent of Hitler prevented the publication of the remaining volumes, what was published continues to be an important reference work. After the curtailment of the publication of the encyclopedia, Klatzkin took refuge first in Switzerland and then in the U. S. , where he lectured at the College of Jewish Studies in Chicago. In 1947, after a further period in New York, he returned to Switzerland. ” (From the 2007 Encyclopaedia Judaica) Subjects: Jews -- Encyclopedias. Encyclopedias, German. Judentum.

The Society aimed at the typographic improvement of the Jewish and Hebrew book; 15 regular publications were primarily intended to introduce to the Jewish book-world suitable models to be imitated by the commercial producers. The Society, therefore, commissioned all the different types of literary products likely to appear in print, such as scholarly works and periodicals, novels, short stories, plays, texts illustrated by modern artists, and reprints of interesting rare books. The texts were chosen from Jewish literature of all periods and languages.

Steinschneider (1816-1907), was the "father of modern Jewish bibliography , among the founders of the "Science of Judaism" (Wissenschaft des Judentums ). Born the son of the Talmud scholar Jacob Steinschneider and Hani Zadek-Weizenkorn in Prossnitz, Moravia, Steinschneider received his early education in his native town, where he was influenced by his uncle Gideon Brecher. He also attended a Christian school and studied music, an interest he maintained throughout his life. Steinschneider's literary output was tremendous; his bibliography contains more than 1,400 items. His main lifelong interest was the study of the relationship between Jewish and general cultures, especially during medieval times. Steinschneider spent most of his life in the pursuit of his great scholarly projects, but he also wrote some lighter belletristic and journalistic works. He also commented - though rarely - on the major contemporary events of his day and for a while was actively involved in a society founded by his friend Abraham Benisch , the aim of which was the promotion of Jewish resettlement in Erez Israel. He withdrew from the group in the early 1840s and later assumed a very negative attitude toward political Zionism" (Schmelzer in EJ 2007). OCLC lists 26 copies worldwide. Yellowing of pages.

Half-Leather. 8vo. XVII, 413, 482 pages. 23 cm. First edition. In German. Two Volumes in One. Half leather over red cloth, with decorative gilt lettering on spine. With frontispiece portrait of Berthold Auerbach. Title translates as: “Berthold Auerbach: Letters to his friend Jacob Auerbach: a biographical memorial. ” “The inner life of Berthold Auerbach is abundantly illustrated by his works; but it receives its fullest light and interpretation in his "Briefe an Seinen Vetter, Jacob Auerbach, " issued by the latter (in accordance with the author's request) in 1884, with a preface by Spielhagen. These letters extend over a period of 52 years (1830-82) , and contain in Auerbach's own words "all that was most important in the development of his general and individual life. " They form a mirror, in which his every mood is reflected, and wherein his genuine nature is depicted with an artlessness and naturalness typical of the man. They form the best commentary upon his philosophy, politics, and religion; and throughout them all, two points are constantly expressed; viz. , love for the Black Forest and enthusiasm for Israel. ” “Among Jakob Auerbach's contributions to Jewish history and literature are his essay on "Lessing and Mendelssohn, " 1867, and a "History of the Jewish Community of Vienna from 1784." His most valuable work, however, was the publication of the letters received by him from Berthold Auerbach, covering the period from the time of the separation of the two friends at Carlsruhe in April, 1830, to the death of the novelist, Feb. 8, 1883. These letters, which appeared in two volumes under the title "Berthold Auerbach: Briefe an Seinen Freund Jacob Auerbach, " Frankfort-on-the-Main, 1884, and in which the whole character and individuality of Berthold Auerbach were unconsciously revealed, form an excellent autobiography of the writer. ” (From the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) Subjects: Authors, German - 19th century - Correspondence.

The son of Elijah Klatzkin, a prominent rabbinical scholar, who gave him a thorough education in all branches of traditional Jewish studies. At the age of 18, Klatzkin went to Germany, first to Frankfurt on the Main and then to Marburg, where he studied philosophy under Hermann Cohen. He received his doctorate from the University of Berne in 1912. In the following years Klatzkin was active in Germany as a writer for Hebrew periodicals, including Ha-Zeman, Ha-Shilo’ah, and Ha-Tekufah, and as editor of Die Welt, the organ of the Zionist Organization, and later in Heidelberg, of the Freie Zionistische Blaetter. From 1912 to 1915 he was director of the Jewish National Fund in Cologne. From 1915 to 1919 he edited the Swiss Bulletin Juif, which covered world events of special relevance to Jews during World War I and established the publishing firm Al ha-Mishmar, which issued a series of books on Jewish problems in French and German. In Berlin Klatzkin founded another publishing house, Eshkol, and continued writing for the Jewish press. In 1924 he and his lifelong friend Nahum Goldmann initiated the Encyclopaedia Judaica, of which ten volumes appeared between 1928 and 1934. Two volumes of a parallel Hebrew edition, Enziklopedyah Yisre’elit, were issued in 1929–32. Klatzkin acted as editor in chief in cooperation with leading Jewish scholars…Klatzkin was a student of philosophy as well as a brilliant Hebrew essayist. In philosophy Klatzkin opposed his teacher Cohen, whose philosophy and interpretation of Judaism he submitted to searching criticism in the monograph Hermann Cohen. He also devoted a critical study to Spinoza, Baruch Spinoza, in which he stressed the Jewish influences in his intellectual background and style; he translated Spinoza’s Ethics from the Latin to Hebrew as Torat ha-Middot. Klatzkin developed his own philosophy, which may be described as vitalistic, emphasizing the biological, instinctive aspect of life rather than the intellectual one, in Sheki'at ha-?

With frontispiece portrait of Fanny Lewald. Includes six plates of portraits. Title translates as “Roman Diary, 1845/1846.” Fanny Lewald was a “German authoress; born May 24, 1811, in Königsberg, Prussia; died Aug. 5, 1889, in Dresden. [Though born Jewish. ] In her seventeenth year she entered the Evangelical Church. In 1831, in company with her father, she made a tour through Germany and France, prolonging her stay in Breslau and Berlin. In 1834, to while away the hours of an invalid sister, she wrote a book of fairy-stories. It was not, however, until 1841 that she entered the literary arena with a novel entitled "Der Stellvertreter, " published in serial form in the "Europa, " a paper owned by a relative likewise named Lewald. Subsequently were published anonymously: "Klementine, " 1842; "Jenny, " 1843; "Eine Lebensfrage, " 1845; "Das Arme Mädchen, " 1845. In the spring of 1845 she made a tour of Italy, after which she settled in Berlin, where she married (1854) Adolph Stahr, the literary critic. In company with her husband she undertook a series of tours through Europe, her mind storing a wealth of impressions which were later to be called into requisition. Her literary productiveness during the years following upon this extended tour knew no bounds. One book followed another in quick succession, astonishing the reading public by their variety of subject and fertility of resource. In all more than fifty volumes can be accredited to a pen never idle. Fanny Lewald is remarkable for her keen observation of men and manners, for the firmness with which her characters are outlined, for the grace and finish of her style; a harsh realism, however, pervades her works. This tendency to realism prompts her to seek an ideal in the dispassionate man of affairs, who according to her standpoint may be relied upon to solve the problem of human existence. As a rule, this view precludes the possibility of frequent excursions into the world of the imagination, and except in rare cases is apt to stamp the work of the writer as devoid of that poetic charm so essential to the highest literary achievement. Her activity was not confined to literature. She was one of Germany's foremost leaders in the movement for the emancipation and advancement of women, favoring the opening to them of new fields of employment. ”(From the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) Subjects: Stahr, Adolf Wilhelm Theodor, 1805-1876.

Harvey Lomax, with a foreword by Joseph Cropsey. “In 1928, German philosopher Carl Schmitt published The Concept of the Political. It quickly became one of the most influential works of political philosophy published and remains a classic. In 1932, a young student of political theory named Leo Strauss published a critique of Concept and over the next two years, wrote several letters to Schmitt questioning aspects of his argument. Schmitt never answered Strauss's letters, but in his revision of the book, he changed a number of passages in response to Strauss's criticisms without even acknowledging them. In this volume, Heinrich Meier shows what this remarkable "hidden dialogue" reveals about the development of these two seminal thinkers. At the center of the dialogue, Meier argues, was the mutual attempt to define exactly what politics is and how it relates to the philosophical tradition and to modern society. Taking Hobbes's "war of all against all" as his inspiration, Schmitt challenged contemporary liberal society's unwillingness to admit that politics was literally "a matter of life and death. " Meier's book insightfully reveals how Strauss's critique forced Schmitt to see that the Hobbesian state was, instead, the very foundation of the liberalism he so despised. ” (Publisher) .

SUBJECT (S): Suess-Oppenheimer, Joseph, 1692-1738 -- Fiction. Lehmann (1831-1890) was a “German Orthodox rabbi, scholar, and writer. Lehmann was born in Verden, Germany, and studied with Israel Hildesheimer in Halberstadt, with S. L. Rapoport in Prague, and at Halle. In Prague he was friendly with the writer Solomon Kohn, who may have influenced Lehmann's future work as a writer. In 1853 an organ was introduced in the synagogue of Mainz and in 1854, when the Orthodox members formed a separate congregation, Lehmann was elected their rabbi and, eventually, one of the leaders and spokesmen of modern German Orthodoxy. In Mainz he founded a religious school which from 1859 was an elementary day school for boys and girls. Lehmann wrote polemically against Reform and founded the weekly Israelit to counter the influence of Ludwig Philippson's Reform periodical, Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums; the Israelit became the principal voice of German Orthodoxy. Lehmann was the main contributor to the Israelit and his many historical novels, including Rabbi Joselmann von Rosheim, and short stories were first published in it. His stories were collected in Aus Vergangenheit und Gegenwart, and many were translated or adapted into Hebrew, Judeo-Arabic, French, Hungarian, English, and other languages. Lehmann's stories have no great literary merit, but as juvenile literature, they have religious and educational value. Of more scholarly importance, though also primarily intended for popular instruction, are his German edition of the Haggadah, anonymously revised and enlarged by H. Ehrmann and translated into English, and his Sabbath lectures on Avot, collected as Die Sprueche der Vaeter in which Lehmann made use of earlier commentators, particularly of Samuel b. Isaac 's Midrash Shemu’el, and thus made the commentators accessible to the German reader. Lehmann also published the tractate Berakhot of the Jerusalem Talmud with the commentary of Solomon Sirillo and his own notes, Meir Nativ. Lehmann translated the Pentateuch in the Bible translation initiated by the Orthodox Bible Institute to counter the translation of Zunz and others. As editor of the Israelit, Lehmann agreed increasingly with S. R. Hirsch’s intransigent line in Hirsch's differences with Hildesheimer, Lehmann's friend and teacher” (Rothschild in EJ, 2007) .

Bound in quarter leather with decorative boards and gilt lettering on spine, marbled endpages, and cloth bookmark. Title translates as: “Correspondence Between Rahel and David Veit: From the Estate of Varnhagen Von Ense. ” Rahel Varnhagen was a “German writer; born at Berlin June 19, 1771; died there March 7, 1833. Her home life was uncongenial, her father, a wealthy jeweler, being a strong-willed man and ruling his family despotically. She was very intimate with Dorothea and Henriette, daughters of Moses Mendelssohn. Together with them she knew Henriette Herz, with whom she later became most intimately associated, moving in the same intellectual sphere. Rahel's home became the meeting-place of men like Schlegel, Schelling, Steffens, Schack, Schleiermacher, Alexander and Wilhelm von Humboldt, Lamotte-Fouqué, Baron Brückmann, Ludwig Tieck, Jean Paul Richter, and F. Von Gentz. During a visit to Carlsbad in 1795 she was introduced to Goethe, whom she again saw in 1815, at Frankfort-on-the-Main. After the death of her father in 1806 she lived successively in Paris, Frankfort-on-the-Main, Hamburg, Prague, and Dresden. This period was one of misfortune for Germany; Prussia was reduced to a small kingdom and her king was in exile. Secret societies were formed in every part of the country with the object of throwing off the tyranny of Napoleon; Rahel herself belonged to one of these societies. In 1814 she married, in Berlin, Karl August Varnhagen von Ense (b. Feb. 21, 1785, at Düsseldorf; d. At Berlin Oct. 10, 1858) , after having been converted to Christianity. At the time of their marriage, Varnhagen, who had fought in the Austrian army against the French, belonged to the Prussian diplomatic corps, and their house at Vienna became the meeting-place of the Prussian delegates to the Vienna Congress. She accompanied her husband in 1815 to Vienna, and in 1816 to Carlsruhe, where he was Prussian representative. After 1819 she again lived in Berlin, where Varnhagen had taken up his residence after having been retired from his diplomatic position. Though not a productive writer herself, Rahel was the center of a circle of eminent writers, scholars, and artists in the Prussian capital. A few of her essays appeared in print in "Das Morgenblatt, " "Das Schweizerische Museum, " and "Der Gesellschafter, " and in 1830 her "Denkblätter einer Berlinerin" was published in Berlin. Her correspondence with David Veit and with Varnhagen von Ense was published in Leipsic, in 1861 and 1874-75 respectively. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) Ludmilla Assing was also a “German authoress; born in Hamburg Feb. 22, 1821; died March 25, 1880, in Florence, Italy. She was the daughter of Dr. David Assing and Rosa Maria Assing, sister of Varnhagen von Ense. After the death of her parents she removed to Berlin to reside with her uncle Varnhagen. While in his house she formed the acquaintance of several noted men and women of that time, among whom were Alexander von Humboldt, Prince Pückler-Muskau, Bettina von Arnim, and many others. In 1861 she took up her residence in Florence, where she passed the rest of her life. She married a lieutenant of the Italian army, Cavaliere Grimelli, from whom she was divorced two years later (1875) . Ludmilla founded in Florence a public school, in which instruction in German was compulsory. Toward the close of her life she became afflicted with brain trouble, from which she never recovered, her death occurring in the insane asylum of San Bonifazio, Florence. As a writer, Ludmilla Assing belonged to the school of Varnhagen. Her literary activity was chiefly directed toward biography. She translated from the Italian Mazzini's works (Hamburg, 1868, 2 vols. ) , and the works of Piero Cironi. She wrote also in Italian. The posthumous works of her uncle were edited by her, and for this she was sentenced, in 1863, to eight months', and again, in 1864, to two years', imprisonment by the Prussian government for disrespect to the king and queen, because the works of Varnhagen that were published under her direction disclosed some scandals of the court. As she was residing in Florence at that time, the intended punishment did not affect her. She was pardoned, however, in 1866, but she preferred, nevertheless, to remain in Italy. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) Subjects: Authors, German -- 19th century -- Correspondence.

Serial Publication. 8vo. 124 pages. 23 cm. First edition. In German. Bound in cloth and decorative boards. Title translates as: “Bulletin of the Society for Jewish Folklore. ” This specific issue of the journal solely contains Grunwald’s famous essay on Hamburg’s Jewish Community from its inception until 1811: “In 1811, Hamburg being incorporated in the French empire, the Jews of that town were forced by an order of Napoleon to withdraw from the congregation of the Three Communities, and to form of the three Hamburg congregations a new community. The constitution of this new community was established in the following year. At the same time the old restrictions were abolished, and full equality before the law was given to the Hamburg Jews, as to all the Jews in the French empire. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) The Bulletin was established to publish the innovative work of Jewish folklorists working at the Hamburg Jewish Museum; it’s publishing run was from 1898 to 1929, though the publication name of the journal changed in 1923 and again in 1926, to that of “Mitteilungen zur jüdischen Volkskunde” and “Jahrbuch für jüdische Volkskunde” respectively. Max Grunwald (1871–1953) , “editor of "Mittheilungen der Gesellschaft für Jüdische Volkskunde, " which society was founded by him in 1897 and of which he is president (1903) . ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) Grunwald was a “rabbi, historian, and folklorist. Born at Hindenburg (now Zabrze, Silesia) , Grunwald served as rabbi in Hamburg (1895–1903) and Vienna (1905–35) . He settled in Jerusalem in 1938. Grunwald was a many-sided and productive scholar. He wrote on the history of the communities which he served. …Grunwald's main interest, however, was Jewish folklore, and his contribution in this field is of lasting importance. In 1897 he founded the Gesellschaft fuer juedische Volkskunde and edited and largely wrote its organ, the Mitteillungen (1897–1922) , which was succeeded by the Jahrbuecher fuer juedische Volkskunde (1923–25) . In this area he contributed also to other periodicals as well as to a number of Festschriften and published important studies such as Hebraeische Frauennamen (1894– ) , Eigennamen des alten Testaments (1895) , and in the related field of Jewish art Holzsynagogen in Polen (with others, 1934) . Among Grunwald's other interests were Spinoza, on whom he had written his dissertation (1892) and a prizewinning Spinoza in Deutschland (1897) . On the occasion of the international exhibition on hygiene in Dresden in 1911 he published a book on that subject, Hygiene der Juden (1912) . He also edited a German prayer book for women and one for serving soldiers (Gebetbuch fuer israelitische Soldaten im Kriege, 1914) . On the occasion of Grunwald's 70th birthday Omanut, the publication of the Bezalel Museum in Jerusalem, issued his bibliography (1941) . ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Subjects: Jews -- Folklore -- Periodicals.

Title translates as: “Memorial Book: 50 years of Munich's main synagogue, 1887-1937, ” Issued on behalf of the Jewish Religious Community of Munich by Leo Baerwald and Ludwig Feuchtwanger. Leo Baerwald was rabbi of the Munich Jewish community from 1918-1940. Leo Baerwald was born in Saaz, Austria-Hungary (now Žatec, Czech Republic) on October 23, 1883. The son of Aron Baerwald, the rabbi of Saaz, and Fanny Lazarus, he was descended from a family of rabbis and well-known Jewish scholars including Moritz Lazarus and Heymann Steinthal. Baerwald studied at the Jüdisch-theologisches Seminar in Breslau (now Wroclaw, Poland) . After serving in World War I as a military chaplain (Feldrabbiner) , he became a rabbi for the Jewish community in Munich. He kept this position until his departure from Germany. From 1933 on Baerwald struggled against the Nazi regime. He was refused a travel permit to leave the country for health reasons. It was in 1940 that he was finally able to leave Germany for England, where he waited for a visa to the United States. After arriving in the United States, Baerwald settled in New York City, where he became the rabbi of the Congregation Beth Hillel in Washington Heights. This congregation was made up of Jewish refugees from Munich and Nuremberg. He retired from this position in 1955. After his retirement he continued to support the congregation as well as becoming involved in the work of the Leo Baeck Institute and the American Federation of Jews from Central Europe. Leo Baerwald died in New York in 1970 at the age of 86. Ludwig Feuchtwanger (1885-1947) was trained as a lawyer, but worked as an author, journalist, and publisher. He was editor of the publishing house Duncker & Humbolt and in the years 1936 to 1939 Feuchtwanger was also appointed director of the Jewish teaching house in Munich and a lecturer at the Central Office for Adult Education (Mittelstelle der juedischen Erwachsenenbildung) . In 1938, he was imprisoned in Dachau concentration camp. Ludwig Feuchtwanger and his family managed to emigrate to Winchester in England in 1939. He was a lecturer at the "Jewish Historical Society of England" and died in Winchester, Great Britain, on July 14, 1947. His papers are also housed at the Leo Baeck Institute.

This history of the Jewish community of Kassel includes 24 pages of photographic plates depicting maps, architectural diagrams, portraits, gravestones, and manuscripts. This volume was published as “Band 1”, book 1, though no more were published, for Hallo passed away two years after the date of publishing. The Jews of Hesse-Cassel, a region in Prussia, have lived in the region since the early middle ages. After a few centuries of consistent legal and social oppression, they were emancipated in 1833. Cassel was one of the four district rabbinates ("Landrabbinier") of Hesse. Rudolf Hallo, (1896–1933) , “German art historian, friend and successor of Franz Rosenzweig as head of the Freies Juedisches Lehrhaus in Frankfurt. Hallo was born in Kassel to a prominent family of court Jews and artisans, which included Israel Aron Hammerschlag of Prague and his grandson and namesake, who was made a Court Jew in 1657 by Frederick William of Brandenburg. The family tradition of painting, gilding, and synagogue decoration began in 1816, when Simon Hallo became an apprentice housepainter, the medieval painters' guild having opened to Jews in the wake of the Emancipation. The firm Gebrueder Hallo was founded in 1891 and moved to Tel Aviv in 1935.” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Hallo was director at the state museum in Kassel, where he created a department of Jewish Art, after he left the Lehrhaus in 1923.

Cloth and decorative paper boards, with original paper wrapper title pastedown. “The Vienna Geserah of 1421”, written by Samuel Krauss, stands as one of the finest histories and documentation of literature on the Vienna Geserah, the “persecution of Jews in Vienna and its environs in 1421. The early 15th century was a period of rising hatred of the burghers of Vienna against the Jews, kindled in part by Jewish wealth. The Hussite heresy had widespread reverberations in Austria at the time, and it was generally held that Jews and Hussites maintained close contact. Duke Albert V, inclined to religious fanaticism and disturbed by the Hussite rebellion, was also deeply in debt to Jewish moneylenders and without the means of repayment. At Easter 1420 a rumor was spread among the population of Vienna that a rich Jew named Israel had bought consecrated hosts from the wife of a Church sexton in Enns, and distributed them among other Jews who desecrated them. The Jews who were implicated were brought to Vienna, imprisoned, and tortured. On May 23, 1420, the Jews were rounded up in all the cities and towns of Austria and their possessions taken from them. The wealthy were imprisoned in Vienna, while the poor were put into boats without oars on the Danube at the mercy of the stream. Some Jews were held captive in houses, others in the synagogues. Children were separated from parents and husbands from wives, and an attempt was made to convert them to Christianity. The rabbis of Italy appealed to Pope Martin V for his intervention on behalf of the Jews of Austria. He reacted by threatening with excommunication anyone who forced Jews to convert. Nonetheless, many of the children taken from their parents were carried off to monasteries and there forcibly converted. A great many of those imprisoned committed suicide, including those held in the synagogues; the last one alive, R. Jonah, set fire to the corpses and died on the funeral pyre. The Jews who were left, 120 women and 92 men, were burned at the stake on March 12, 1421. All the property of the Jews passed to Duke Albert. The stones of the synagogue were used in building the university. Some Jews escaped to Bohemia; a very few managed to maintain an illegal existence in Austria. The proud Vienna community numbering between 1, 400 and 1, 600 existed no longer, and the city became known in Jewish tradition as "Ir ha-Damim" ("The City of Blood") . ” Samuel Krauss (February 18, 1866 - June 4, 1948) was professor at the Jewish Teachers' Seminary, Budapest, 1894–1906, and at the Jewish Theological Seminary, Vienna, 1906-1938. He came to England as a refugee and spent his last years at Cambridge. He was a contributor to the Jewish Encyclopedia as “S. Kr. ” In 1910, he became a pioneer in Talmudic archaeology with the publication of Talmudische Archäologie, which was reprinted in Hebrew in 1924. His 1922 study of the ancient synagogue, Synagogale Altertümer is still considered essential reading on the topic. In 1935 he published a comprehensive and detailed study of Biblical names of ninety eight then modern nations. (Encyclopedia Judaica 2008) . Subjects: Jews -- Austria.

Title translates to English as, “The Divine Mission: ‘Because you get to live, God sent me before you’ I Mos. 45, 5.” Georg Salzberger was rabbi to the Frankfurt Jewish community from 1910 to 1939, and belonged to the Reform Movement. In 1910 he took up his first post as a rabbi in Frankfurt. The construction of a new synagogue for liberal services in that year had made it necessary to appoint a third liberal rabbi to the community. Today this synagogue is known as the Westend Synagogue in FreiherrvonStein Straße: it was the only synagogue in Frankfurt to survive Kristallnacht, and is still in use. During the First World War Salzberger was a voluntary military chaplain on the Western Front at Verdun. He also worked as a rabbi and religious instructor at the Philanthropin. After the seizure of power by the Nazis and the departure of the other two liberal rabbis (Seligmann had retired, and Lazarus had died) , Salzberger was the only working liberal community rabbi in Nazi Frankfurt. Following Kristallnacht, he was arrested by the Gestapo and imprisoned in Dachau concentration camp. In April 1939 he was allowed to leave Germany and emigrate to England. There he became cofounder of the German-speaking Jewish community in London, and remained their rabbi until 1957. Salzberger was accorded numerous honours: in 1962 he received the Grand Cross for Services to the Federal Republic, and in 1972 the Buber-Rosenzweig Medal. He died in London in 1975.

His main interest, however, was Yiddish, about which he wrote much, although little in the language itself. His Hebrew articles in defense of Yiddish against its detractors involved him in a controversy with Nahum Sokolow . At the Czernowitz Yiddish Conference of 1908, he created a sensation with his well-reasoned, scholarly espousal of Yiddish. I. L. Peretz asked for the widest possible distribution of Mieses' speech.

Delitzsch (1813–1890) , was a “German Protestant theologian, Bible and Judaica scholar. Inspired by Julius Fuerst to devote himself to the study of Judaism, he was appointed professor of theology at the university of his native Leipzig in 1844. Later he taught at Rostock, Erlangen, and again in Leipzig. Though Delitzsch was a devoted Christian and the most significant figure of the Lutheran “Mission to the Jews, ” believing in the supremacy of the New Testament over the Old, he maintained an extraordinary understanding of, and affection for, Judaism. Well versed in Hebrew and in Semitic languages, as well as in the Talmud and in medieval Jewish literature, Delitzsch was in close touch with the leading Jewish scholars of his time. As a devout Christian, he proselytized among the Jews, wrote several pamphlets for that purpose, and made a new translation of the New Testament into Hebrew (1877, 190112; supposedly with the assistance of A.

Title translates as “The Golem: A Novel. ” Gustav Meyrink (1868 – 1932) was the pseudonym of Gustav Meyer, an Austrian author, storyteller, dramatist, translator, and banker, most famous for his novel The Golem. First published in serial form as Der Golem in 1913-14 in the periodical Die weissen Blätter, The Golem was published in book form in 1915 by Kurt Wolff, Leipzig. The Golem was Meyrink's first novel. It became his most popular and successful literary work, and is generally described as the most "accessible" of his full-length novels. The novel is rooted in Jewish legend about a Rabbi who made a living-being called a golem (? ? ? ? ) out of clay and animated it with a Kabbalistic spell, although these legends have little to do with the plotline. The main character is Athanasius Pernath, a contemporary lapidary from Prague. It is left to the reader to decide whether Pernath is simply writing down his hallucinations or gradually turning into a real golem. Subjects: Golem -- Fiction.

Bound in later full leather over boards, with pastedown title on cover, and decorative endpages; printed on linen paper, with two engravings by Hermann Struck and four black and white plates, including a facsimile letter written by Heinrich Heine. Georg Brandes, (Morris Cohen; 1842–1927) , “Danish literary critic and writer. Brandes was born into an assimilated family which had retained some nominal ties with the Copenhagen Jewish community. Georg Brandes was one of Denmark's greatest writers and his enormous influence on Danish culture and on European literature is still apparent. He was also one of the outstanding representatives of the greatness and tragedy of the assimilated European Jew. It is significant that the Jewish figures whom he tried to understand and describe were Heine , Boerne , Disraeli , and Lassalle. Although Brandes created a new type of literary critic and was familiar with all of the different national literary and political manifestations in Europe, he himself was never really at home anywhere and his relationship with Denmark was ambivalent. He was never really accepted by the Danes and his ideas still provoke either enthusiasm or disgust. Brandes denounced the progroms in Eastern Europe, but repudiated his own Jewishness and disliked "Jewish" characteristics in others. He defended Dreyfus, but did not take Herzl's Jewish State or the Zionist movement very seriously, much to Herzl's dismay. After the Balfour Declaration, Brandes recognized the reality of Zionism. He expressed this change of view in an article entitled "Das neue Judentum" (1918) , which later appeared in a biographical study by Henri Nathansen. Here, an intimate friend described the critic's struggle with his Jewish identity. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Hermann Struck (1876–1944) , “graphic artist. Struck, born into an Orthodox Berlin family, studied at the Berlin Academy under Max Koner, where Hans Meyer introduced him to the art of etching. Struck joined the Zionist movement at an early age. In 1903, after several study trips throughout Europe, he visited Palestine and, on his way back to Germany, stopped in Vienna and met Herzl. This meeting inspired the famous portrait etching of the Zionist leader. During World War I Struck served with the German army in Lithuania. There he came in contact with East European Jews and was deeply impressed by their way of life. Skizzen aus Litauen, Weissrussland und Kurland (1916) and Das ostjuedische Antlitz (1920) reflect this experience. In 1923 he moved to Palestine and settled in Haifa. Struck's favorite technique was copper etching and its related processes although he did lithographs as well. His early work, done in pure etching, was usually signed with his Hebrew name, ? Ayyim Aharon ben David. From 1902 he mixed etching with vernis mou and aquatint. A master of his craft and an excellent teacher, Struck taught graphic techniques to such fellow artists as Chagall, Liebermann, Israels, and Corinth. His book Die Kunst des Radierens (19235) , a popular guidebook for artists and connoisseurs, provides technical explanations and practical instruction. Struck excelled as a portraitist. Among his sitters were Ibsen, Nietzsche, Freud, and Einstein. He also did landscapes, Jewish types and scenes from Jewish life as well as many ex libris. Struck, who remained an Orthodox Jew, participated in Jewish public life and attended several Zionist congresses as one of the leaders of the Mizrachi Party. He was a member of the London Society of Painters, Etchers and Engravers. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Subjects: Heine, Heinrich, 1797-1856. Covers repaired & slightly bowed.

First edition. In German. Cloth with decorative boards and beautiful decorative gilt lettering on spine. This copy is one of 100 luxury editions printed. With 228 black and white plates. Title translates as: “E. M. Lilies, Artistic Development from Beginning of the Century. ” This volume constitutes an important documentation and description of the work of Jewish graphic artist and illustrator with his bibliography in the appendix. Ephraim Moses Lilien (1874–1925) , “Austrian illustrator and printmaker. Lilien was born in Drohobycz, Galicia. He studied art in Cracow for a short time, but lack of funds forced him to return home. He eventually earned enough as a sign painter to go to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. In 1895 he worked in Munich as a cartoonist, where he obtained his first commission for the magazine Jugend; three years later he moved to Berlin, where he soon became known as a book illustrator. Lilien was the first artist to become involved in the Zionist movement. He took an active part in three consecutive Zionist Congresses and was a member of the Democratic Fraction, which stressed the need to foster Jewish culture. In 1900 there was published Juda, a volume of ballads on Old Testament themes by a pro-Zionist German poet, Boerries Freiherr von Muenchhausen, illustrated by Lilien. This was followed by Lieder des Ghetto in which social adversity and the rejection of poor Jews were reflected. In 1902 he was one of the founders of the Berlin publishing house, Juedischer Verlag , which he served not only as an illustrator but also as editor, manager, and publicity agent. Between 1908 and 1912 three volumes, of its planned ten, illustrated books of the Bible appeared. He collaborated closely with Theodor Herzl ; Lilien's photograph of the Zionist leader on the Rhine bridge, his Herzl portraits, and his decorations for the Golden Book of the Jewish National Fund became familiar to Zionists all over the world. In 1905 Lilien, along with Boris Schatz and others, was a member of the committee formed to establish the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem. He taught there for some months in the following year and revisited Palestine three times, on the last occasion as a lieutenant in the Austro-Hungarian army during World War I. In 1908 Lilien turned from book illustration to etching. Many of his etchings are views of Austria and Hungary, while others record his impressions of Palestine, Damascus, and Beirut. His drawings, executed mainly in India ink, show a crisp, elegant line and a strong contrast between black and white areas. Lilien combined biblical and traditional Jewish themes with the motifs and methods of Art Nouveau. His art expressed Jewish hopes and desires in the era of Zionism that looked beyond the exile. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Subjects: Jewish art and symbolism -- Germany.

Rebound in modern paper wrappers, 8vo. , 68 pages. First edition (? ) . In German. On cover: "Ein Beitrag zur hebräisch-jüdischen Alterthumskunde". Title translates as "The Conditions of Slaves as Represented in Ancient Hebrew, Biblical and Talmudic Sources." Given the appearance of this work on the eve of the Civil War in the US, and Mielziner's orientation toward America (to which he would soon emigrate) this work must be seen as a clear reference to the ongoing Slavery debates in the US raging at the time. A Rabbi and Professor, Mielziner "was born and educated in Germany, where he began his rabbinic career. He headed a Jewish school in Copenhagen, Denmark, while earning his Ph. D. From the University of Giessen (1859) . Immigrating to the United States, Mielziner served as a congregational rabbi and educator in New York City until 1879, when Isaac Mayer Wise appointed him professor of Talmud at Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. Upon Wise's death, Mielziner was chosen interim president of the seminary, a position he held for three years, from 1900 until his death. Mielziner was a charter member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) , and his scholarly input on relevant subjects had an important influence on early discussions of CCAR policy. He published several treatises on Jewish law - including a volume on halakhah and divorce and marriage, as well as an overview of rabbinic civil and criminal law - but is best known for his classic work Introduction to the Talmud, published originally in 1894 and reissued three times since; the most recent edition, which appeared in 1968, contains an updated bibliography compiled by Alexander Guttmann . Mielziner's exposition of talmudic methodology - featuring a skillful dissection of the Talmud's distinctive system of technical terms and phrases adapted to its unique methods of investigation and demonstration - has been an indispensable handbook for the serious student of the Talmud for more than a century.

Catholic tract aimed at converting Jews and Protestants, published during the Rohling-Bloch Affair. Rohling, (1839-1931) , was an "antisemitic polemicist. A fanatical ultramontanist priest from the Rhineland, Rohling published in 1871 his Der Talmudjude (based on J. A. Eisenmenger 's Entdecktes Judenthum) , a collection of deliberately corrupted quotations, imaginary statements, and forgeries against the Talmud. The book appeared in successive editions and became very popular. When Franz Holubek, a leader of the Viennese artisan movement, was sued for inciting a crowd against the Jews (April 4, 1882) , he pleaded not guilty, claiming that he had obtained his information in good faith from the books of Rohling, a full professor at the German University of Prague. Rohling's academic appointments were obtained through the intercession of high Church dignitaries. Holubek's acquittal was a victory for the growing political antisemitism. Rohling and his works acquired further notoriety through the Tiszaeszlar blood libel affair, when Rohling volunteered to testify that Jews required Christian blood for their ceremonies. After Franz Delitzsch , the renowned Protestant Orientalist, had revealed Rohling's ignorance and baseness, Rohling accused Delitzsch of being a Jew and then castigated Adolf Jellinek and Moritz Guedemann as cunning knaves for denying Holubek's charges. Rohling's challenger was Joseph Samuel Bloch who, after repeated sorties against him, published a series of articles in July 1883 under the title, "An Offer to Commit Perjury, " in which he branded Rohling a liar and perjurer. Forced by public opinion to sue Bloch for libel, Rohling enlisted the aid of two antisemites, Brimanus (a Romanian-Jewish renegade who had taught Rohling Hebrew and was author of the scurrilous Der Judenspiegel under the pseudonym "Justus") and Ecker (a convicted forger, priest, and professor at an obscure seminary in Paderborn) . Neither could attend the trial. Bloch recruited the respected Orientalists Theodor Noeldeke and Karl August Wuensche, who completely demolished all Rohling's academic pretenses. Even Paul Lagarde condemned Rohling's works. In 1885, shortly before the trial was due to open, Rohling withdrew his suit after Bloch had collected an immense amount of material against him. He paid the costs of the trial, lost his academic chair, and left the public scene, nevertheless continuing to publish antisemitic tracts. Rohling's Talmudjude was translated into several European languages; E. Drumont wrote the introduction to the French edition. The work continued to be published for more than 50 years, and served as a source for Nazi antisemitic doctrines" (EJ, 2007) . SUBJECT(S): Lateau, Louise, 1850-1883; Missions to Jews; Stigmatization.

Born in Detmold, Germany, the child of talmud scholar Immanuel Menachem Zunz and Hendel Behrens, daughter of Dov Beer. Zunz devoted his life to the outline and development of the Wissenschaft des Judentums. According to the modern historical-philological school of F. A. Wolf and A. Boeckh, he intended an exploration of all post-biblical rabbinical or, as he called it, Jewish literature. But instead of modern classical studies (Wissenschaft des Altertums) , which treated ancient cultures as completely past, he pursued a substantial interest in the nature of Judaism. In addition to parallels to the modern classics, Zunz participated in the contemporary philosophical discourse about the progress of world history and mankind – most influentially expressed by Johann Gottfried Herder and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel . For him, the historical, cultural and religious achievements of the “Hebrew/Jewish nation” in the Diaspora was revealed in all its written sources. In so doing, Zunz denied several basic values of traditional Judaism, but in their place offered the modern Jew an interest in history” (Glatzer and Pelger in EJ 2007) .

He published works on the terminology and technology of handicrafts in the Mishnah, Versuch einer Technologie und Terminologie der Handwerke in der Mischnah (1894) , and on various aspects of contemporary German-Jewish history. His major work was his participation, in collaboration with his friend Hermann Vogelstein, in a massive work on the history of the Jews in Rome (Geschichte der Juden in Rom) , as the result of a prize competition sponsored by the Moritz Rapoport Foundation in Vienna in 1890. Rieger wrote the entire second volume (1895) , dealing with the period from 1420 to 1870, as well as some parts of the first volume (1896) .

(Leo Baeck Memorial Lecture; 46) Elisheva Carlebach is Professor of History at Queens College and the Graduate Center, CUNY. On December 3, 2002, she gave the 46th Leo Baeck Memorial Lecture at the Leo Baeck Institute New York. The author examines what it meant for a Jew to convert to Christianity in early modern Europe. She focuses on Germany, where it generally meant profound unease and discomfort. The status of Jews who converted, who retained elements of their Jewishness while not accepted as true Christians, resulted in a figure that was often considered, at least from the Christian perspective, a counterfeit human being. The collective historical influence of the converts was complex and enduring since they did not simply disappear within the majority. Rather, they became the first German Jews to experience the consequences of a dual identity, and the first to demonstrate that leaving Judaism for Christianity was never a simple transformation. Christians accepted them as baptized but not truly converted. Elisheva Carlebach describes the dilemma of identity and the sense of alienation and which are a persistent theme in the history of conversions out of Judaism.SUBJECT (S): Jews -- Germany -- History -- 18th century.

Following on from “Jews in the German Economy”, which analysed the economic activities of this elite, it presents a detailed picture of the group's socio-cultural profile. Based largely on autobiographical material, it covers such matters as attitudes to Judaism, relations at different levels with Gentiles and with other Jews, marriage patterns, the public role, political culture, cultural activities, and patronage. The major underlying theme is the conflict between preservation of the Jewish identity, and integration into the surrounding society. Different forms of self-identification are examined, as well as various patterns of conformity. ” W. E. Mosse is Professor Emeritus in the School of European Studies, University of East Anglia.

" He went direct to the Arabic original, supplementing the texts he found at the Bibliothèque from texts he had copied at Oxford. At the same time he made a thorough study of Aristotle, who is constantly quoted by Maimonides.

Born at Hindenburg (now Zabrze, Silesia) , Grunwald served as rabbi in Hamburg (1895–1903) and Vienna (1905–35) . He settled in Jerusalem in 1938. Grunwald was a many-sided and productive scholar. He wrote on the history of the communities which he served. …Grunwald's main interest, however, was Jewish folklore, and his contribution in this field is of lasting importance. In 1897 he founded the Gesellschaft fuer juedische Volkskunde and edited and largely wrote its organ, the Mitteillungen (1897–1922) , which was succeeded by the Jahrbuecher fuer juedische Volkskunde (1923–25) . In this area he contributed also to other periodicals as well as to a number of Festschriften and published important studies such as Hebraeische Frauennamen (1894– ) , Eigennamen des alten Testaments (1895) , and in the related field of Jewish art Holzsynagogen in Polen (with others, 1934) . Among Grunwald's other interests were Spinoza, on whom he had written his dissertation (1892) and a prizewinning Spinoza in Deutschland (1897) . On the occasion of the international exhibition on hygiene in Dresden in 1911 he published a book on that subject, Hygiene der Juden (1912) . He also edited a German prayer book for women and one for serving soldiers (Gebetbuch fuer israelitische Soldaten im Kriege, 1914) . On the occasion of Grunwald's 70th birthday Omanut, the publication of the Bezalel Museum in Jerusalem, issued his bibliography (1941) . ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) This set contains the signature and stamp at the endpage of each volume of Dr. Max Freudenthal of Danzig: “Max Freudenthal (1868–1937) , German liberal rabbi and writer. Freudenthal, who served as rabbi in Dessau, 1893–1900, Danzig, 1900–07, and Nuremberg, 1907–35, was one of the most resolute exponents of religious liberalism in Germany. His contributions to Jewish scholarship covered both philosophy and history. In philosophy he published Die Erkenntnislehre Philos von Alexandrien (1891): in history, Ausder Heimat Moses Mendelssohns (1900) ; Die Familie Gomperz (in collaboration with D. Kaufmann, 1907) ; Die israelitische Kultusgemeinde Nuernberg, 1874–1924 (1925) , which includes his autobiography; and Leipziger Messegaeste (1928) .

Brief description of the Kulturbund Deutscher Juden from the Wiener Library in Tel-Aviv: “The Kulturbund Deutscher Juden was an organisation engaged in promoting culture and the arts among the Jews of Germany between 1933 and 1941. Its purposes were to enable the Jewish population to maintain a cultural life and to alleviate the distress of the thousands of Jewish theatrical artists and musicians who had been thrown out of their jobs when the Nazis came to power. The instigators were Kurt Baumann, a theatre director and Kurt Singer, a neurologist. The self-help organisation, which was funded by members' contributions, sought, in the first instance, to create work opportunities for the unemployed artists. The original title 'Kulturbund Deutscher Juden' had to soon be changed as a name containing the words 'German' and 'Jewish' was politically unacceptable. After the initial foundation in Berlin, numerous branches emerged in other German towns and cities. By 1935 there were 36 regional and local 'Kulturbünde' (unions) with approximately 70, 000 members. The individual branches were forced to affiliate to the 'Reichsverband jüdischer Kulturbünde in Deutschland' (Reich Assembly of Jewish cultural unions, RJK) by August 1935. The RJK was placed under the aegis of the 'Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda' (the Reich Ministry of Propaganda) . The performances of these unions, which were censored and monitored by the Gestapo, had to be individually sanctioned by the 'Reichskulturwalter' (Reich Culture Chamber manager) , Hans Hinkel. In order to facilitate the activities of the unions the RJK instituted self-censorship. In July 1937 there were 120 independent organisations, including synagogues and cultural groups united under the umbrella of the RJK. Performances and events of the unions (above all in Berlin) took place on a daily basis. Between 1933-1935 the main venue was the Berliner Theater. The Hamburger Kulturbund was also very active. The programme included theatre and and opera performances, concerts, art, cabaret, film shows, lectures, and exhibitions. In order to ensure cultural segregation, non Jews could neither perform at nor attend these events. The works of German authors and composers could not be performed. After the November pogrom of 1938 most unions were forced to close. Only the Berlin Kulturbund was given the permission by Joseph Goebbels, for propaganda reasons, to remain active. In 1939 the RJK was wound up and in its place the 'Jüdische Kulturbund in Deutschland e. V. ', formed of the remnants of the Berlin Kulturbund, took responsibility for and organised all Jewish cultural performances thereafter. The emigration of many important Jewish artists had a detrimental effect on the quality and quantity of subsequent events. The union was finally closed down on 11 September 1941 by the Gestapo and many of its members and officials, including the founder, Kurt Singer, were deported and murdered. ” The beginning of the project was initiated by Baumann and Singer, with the assistance of Berlin’s chief rabbi Leo Baeck, conductor Joseph Rosenstock, and journalist Werner Levie.

Leipzig; Baumgärtners Buchhandlung, 1842. Clothbound. 4to. 766 [4] pages. 26 cm. In German. Title translates as: “General Newspaper of Judaism. Impartial Organ for All Matters of Jewish Interest Pertaining to Politics, Religion, Literature, History, Philology, and Belles-lettres”. This is a consecutively numbered compilation of all 52 weekly issues for year VI, 1842, of the publication. Contains index and title page. “A German journal devoted to Jewish interests; founded in 1837 by Dr. Ludwig Philippson (1811-89) ; published first in Leipsic and later in Berlin. At the time of its foundation there had been several Jewish journals in existence: "Sulamith, " "Jedidja, " Geiger's "Wissenschaftliche Zeitschrift für Jüdische Theologie, " and Dr. Höninghaus' "Universal-Kirchenzeitung, " which admitted Jewish contributors. Philippson felt that these did not satisfy the needs of the times. He determined to found a journal for the intelligent laity—one that should not only advance the knowledge of the Jews' past history, but should also plead the cause of the Jews of his day. The first number of his paper appeared May 2, 1837, and was published by Baumgärtner in Leipsic with the subtitle "Unparteiisches Organ für Alles Jüdische Interesse in Betreff von Politik, Religion, Literatur, Geschichte, Sprachkunde, und Belletristik" During the first two years three numbers a week appeared; and for a year and a half a supplement was published three times a month, devoted to literature and homiletics. In 1839 the journal became a weekly. The "Allgemeine Zeitung" has never received a subsidy from any Jewish body. In 1848, when the publication of nearly all other Jewish journals was interrupted, the "Allgemeine Zeitung" braved the storm and spoke out plainly in the political turmoil. From the outset the "Allgemeine Zeitung" met with success. A few weeks after the issue of its first number a society of students in Leyden (Holland) was formed to aid its circulation. Even in Poland it obtained several hundred subscribers; and within three months after the appearance of the first number Philippson felt justly confident of its material success. The journal aroused great enthusiasm in the cultured Jewish circles of Germany, Austria, and Holland, and exercised considerable influence on Judaism in general—more especially in Germany, where it became a distinct factor in the evolution of Judaism. To its influence is due in a large measure the establishment of a rabbinical seminary (Lehranstalt für die Wissenschaft des Judenthums in Berlin) and of a Jewish Publication Society (Institut zur Förderung der Israelitischen Literatur) , as well as the calling together of a Jewish synod (Leipsic, 1869) . Philippson's chief aim was the civil emancipation of the Jews. He carried on the fight for that cause begun by Gabriel Riesser and others. But the paper gained further importance in connection with the inner communal and religious life of the Jews, since it devoted attention to the organization of religious instruction, to the form of worship in the synagogue, and to the cultivation of Jewish learning in all its branches. Jost, who in his "Neuere Geschichte der Israeliten" (iii. 149-156) , devoted a whole chapter to the "Allgemeine Zeitung, " said "that it became epoch-making in Jewish history by attempting for the first time to give a general view of the life and conditions of the Jews.
