Adler, David Cassel, & Boaz Cohen, to name a few.

We plan to issue a Part II of this catalog later in a few months.

Ehrlich included part of the material from his Hebrew commentary, but in an expanded form, as well as new interpretations arrived at since its publication; many of his earlier opinions are changed here. Only rarely does he comment on aspects dealt with by the "higher criticism. " He concentrates on textual criticism and reconstructions, and his very numerous emendations (especially in his German commentary) are at times conjectural (such as: haplography or dittography, letters having a similar appearance in the ancient or in the square script, the use of abbreviations, glosses, etc. ) , and in most cases are not even based on ancient translations. His comments, which are distinguished by their originality, at times have the quality of homiletics and are derived from Ehrlich's innovating spirit; yet through his sound linguistic instinct and fine linguistic differentiations he succeeded in illuminating and explaining, with great acumen and profundity, many verses and linguistic usages. Ehrlich's exegetical work is an important contribution to modern biblical exegesis. " (Raphael Weiss, EJ) SUBJECT(S): Bible. O. T. Psalms. German. 1905. Bible. O. T. Psalms -- Commentaries.

Midrasch Tannaim is "a tannaitic work which is a collection of beraitot, comprising fragments of a halakhic Midrash on Deuteronomy. D. Hoffmann conjectured that in ancient times there was an halakhic Midrash, also on Deuteronomy, of the school of R. Ishmael, similar to Mekhilta of R. Ishmael. Indeed, in the Cairo Genizah several fragments of such a Midrash were found, which were published by S. Schechter (in JQR, 16 (1904) , 446-52, 695-9). Later Hoffmann issued an edition of Midrash Tannaim on Deuteronomy, with an introduction and notes (1908-09) , compiled from Midrash ha-Gadol on Deuteronomy, with the addition of the above-mentioned genizah fragments. Since, however, the author of Midrash ha-Gadol did not indicate his sources, and even adapted, abbreviated, and expanded, subdivided, and combined them, Hoffmann's edition has to be treated with great caution. Still later, yet another genizah fragment was discovered which was likewise published by Schechter (in Festschrift I. Lewy (1911) Heb. Pt. 187-92). The fragments, totaling six folios, constitute only an extremely small part of the lost Midrash, which was subdivided into sections, and the sections into halakhot. More cannot be said of its structure, nor is the date of its redaction or even its original name known. It is, however, clear that it belonged to a type A of the halakhic Midrashim.

"Mannheimer was a Vienna preacher and creator of a moderate, compromise Reform ritual...one of the leading preachers of the 19th century, attracting all segments of the Jewish population; he adhered to an inspirational rather than didactic concept of preaching. His sermons, in which the aggadah was translated into modern terms, remained classical in form and content, yet they were the least rule bound and formalistic of contemporary sermons. Moreover, he was not reluctant to acknowledge his debt to Christian masters of the art of preaching. In his mature years in Vienna he rejected radical Reform and adopted a middle course in his service, eliminating some traditions without destroying their essence. He insisted on Hebrew as the language of worship, retained the prayers of Zion and Jerusalem, did not incorporate organ music into the service, and vigorously defended circumcision as a ritual of fundamental importance. In creating a form of worship known as "worship according to Mannheimer" (or "the Viennese rite") he prevented a split in the community, and became a pioneer in this type of service in the communities of Austria, Hungary, and Bohemia. His service was also imitated in some German communities. He helped to foster reforms in religious education, retaining Hebrew as an important element and introduced birth, marriage, and death registers into the community. He also helped to found a number of charitable and cultural organizations and fought for the rights of the Jews in general society; with great persistence he sought to gain legal recognition of the Viennese community.
