  1. Scholem, Gershom. קריירהשלפראנקיסט: משהדוברושקהוגלגוליו THE CAREER OF A FRANKIST: MOSES DOBRUSCHKA AND HIS METAMORPHOSES [INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR]. Jerusalem, 1970. Original Wrappers. [v]-viii, [127]-181 (ie 4 + 55 pages); 22 cm. Chiefly in Hebrew, summary in English with title pages in both languages. Offprint from: Zion : quarterly for research in Jewish history, V. 35. This copy is inscribed by the Scholem on the front cover. “Frankism, a Jewish religious movement of the 18th and 19th centuries, centered on the leadership of the Jewish Messiah claimant Jacob Frank, who lived from 1726 to 1791. At its height it claimed perhaps 50,000 followers, primarily Jews living in Poland and other parts of Eastern Europe.Unlike traditional Judaism, which provides a set of detailed guidelines called halakha that are scrupulously followed by observant Jews and regulate many aspects of life, Frank claimed that ‘all laws and teachings will fall’ and following antinomianism asserted that one's most important personal obligation of every person was the transgression of every boundary.” (Wikipedia, 2016) In this publication, Scholem tells the story of Moses Dobruska, a first cousin once removed of Jacob Frank (and Frankist himself), who was also an active Jacobin during the French Revolution. Dobruska changed his name twice during his life (first to Schönfeld, and then to Frey) because of his various political and religious beliefs. He was executed by guillotine for treason and espionage during the Revolution on 5 April 1794. Scholem, who published several works on Frankism throughout his life, inscribed this copy, “With Blessings and Friendship, G. Scholem.” Also inserted is a return address from the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, which is also signed by the Scholem, indicating that the package was sent from him at the Academy. SUBJECT(S): Jews -- Austria -- Biography. Jacobins -- France -- Biography. Some wear to wrappers. Overall very good condition. (AMR-48-36A) $500.00.

    A Jew Responds to a Leading Antisemite of the Day

     

  7. Perinhart, J. DIE DEUTSCHEN JUDEN UND HERR W. MARR. Loebau Wpr. R. Skrzeczek, 1879. Original Wraps. 8vo. 42 pages. 23 cm. In German. 'The German Jews and Mr. W. Marr'. An anti-Marr pamphlet by J. Perinhart, a Reform Jew, who attacked Marr's pamphlet on the grounds that it falsified the reality of Jewish economic life: Perinhart argued that Jews were primarily artisans, and that the connection of Jews as essential to the emergence of capitalism was false. Wilhelm Marr (1819-1904), a radical agitator, had been on the left wing in the 48 revolutions; he later popularized the term anti-semitism, and was the author of the famous pamphlet Der Weg zum Siege des Germanenthums über das Judenthum (The Way to Victory of Germanicism over Judaism, 1879) wherein he introduced the idea that Germans and Jews were locked in a longstanding conflict, the origins of which he attributed to race, argued that Jewish emancipation resulting from German liberalism had allowed the Jews to control German finance and industry, and called for the expulsion of Jews from Germany. Marr later renounced anti-semitism at the end of his life, and declared himself as originally a 'philo-semite', undoubtedly under the impact of the debates in the SPD. Subjects: Antisemitism - Germany. Jews - Germany. Antisemitismus. Marr, Wilhelm, 1819-1904. OCLC lists 21 copies.

  9. Heschel, Abraham J. DIE PROPHETIE [INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR]. Krakow. Komisja Orientalistyczna. Krakow: Nakladem Polskiej Akademji Umiejetnosci, 1936. 1st Edition. Later boards. 8vo. Vi, 194 pages; 25 cm. 6 word initialled inscription by the author. In German. Title translates as “Prophecy.” Bibliographical footnotes. Extremely rare inscribed first edition of Abraham Joshua Heschel’s (1907-1972) dissertation on the Hebrew prophets, the work that became key to his close relationship with Martin Luther King, jr as King’s closest Jewish colleague. Martin Luther King, jr, and Heschel "initially bonded over the prophets. King was drawn to Heschel’s intimate knowledge of the topic (Heschel’s masterwork, in a body of masterworks, was his book The Prophets), and Heschel in turn admired King’s devotion to the Exodus story of Moses and the Israelites, adapted to the narrative of the civil rights struggle in the 1950s and ’60s....Heschel...can also be considered a kind of prophet himself. The main job of the prophets of the Bible, after all, is to hold their people’s feet to the fire. Moses railed at the weak and foolish Israelites who strayed from the path the minute their leader ascended to the mountaintop to commune with God. King fulminated against the war in Southeast Asia as well as against the injustices rampant in white American culture toward those whom it had enslaved for hundreds of years. Heschel supported both these causes, incurring the disapproval of some Jewish leaders when he did not hesitate to vigorously excoriate U. S. Involvement in Vietnam, preaching widely on the subject, writing letters to presidents, and being a spokesman for other religious leaders in meetings with high-level military strategists like Secretary of State Dean Rusk...Heschel, like King, had the charisma a prophet needs. He was impossible to dismiss, even when his message stung. The consummate gadfly, he shined a bright light on the ills of American society and also on those of American Judaism in the mid-20th century, which he saw as stultifying, airless, soulless, moribund. He was an outlier on one crisis we face today: how to make Judaism not only appealing but actually indispensable for Jews of future generations. His words were bracing and his exhortations powerful, but, rendered in such breathtakingly poetic language (as well as expressed verbally in his disarming Polish accent), they seem like a loving gift from a benevolent elder, not a rebuke: He even warned warmly. He was a Jew who had suffered and seen too much suffering, and who, unlike the rest of us, was capable of vision on a greater scale, the prophetic scale. He knew what he was talking about, and, like King, he believed people could rise up, be their best selves, and behave with righteousness and even with holiness. Heschel died in 1972, four years after his friend King was shot dead. It’s a long time ago now. The prophets we have today don’t speak in King’s mellifluous rhetoric or write in Heschel’s enchanting prose. Maybe we have murdered or hounded to death those with the capacity to make our hearts soar with their words of justice and compassion; we’ve gotten pretty cynical, maybe too cynical for those kinds of voices" (Sian Gibby in Tablet Magazine, 2016). Abraham Joshua Heschel (January 11, 1907 – December 23, 1972) was a Polish-born American rabbi and one of the leading Jewish theologians and Jewish philosophers of the 20th century....In late October 1938, when Heschel was living in a rented room in the home of a Jewish family in Frankfurt, he was arrested by the Gestapo and deported to Poland. He spent ten months lecturing on Jewish philosophy and Torah at Warsaw's Institute for Jewish Studies. Six weeks before the German invasion of Poland, Heschel left Warsaw for London with the help of Julian Morgenstern, president of Hebrew Union College, who had been working to obtain visas for Jewish scholars in Europe....Heschel believed the teachings of the Hebrew prophets were a clarion call for social action in the United States and worked for African Americans' civil rights and against the Vietnam War. He also specifically criticized what he called ‘pan-halakhism, ’ or an exclusive focus upon religiously compatible behavior to the neglect of the non-legalistic dimension of rabbinic tradition. Heschel is a widely read Jewish theologian whose most influential works include Man Is Not Alone...At the Vatican Council II, as representative of American Jews, Heschel persuaded the Roman Catholic Church to eliminate or modify passages in its liturgy that demeaned the Jews, or referred to an expected conversion to Christianity. His theological works argued that religious experience is a fundamentally human impulse, not just a Jewish one. He believed that no religious community could claim a monopoly on religious truth.” (WIkipedia, 2016). Heschel was the Polish-born American rabbi who became one of the leading Jewish theologians and Jewish philosophers of the 20th century. Heschel was professor of Jewish mysticism at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, authored a number of widely read books on Jewish philosophy, and was active in the American Civil Rights movement. Heschel wrote the dissertation in German and later expanded and published it in English in 1962. Includes tables. Polska Akademia Umiejetnosci, Krakow. Komisja Orientalistyczna.

  13. Stern, Sigismund. DIE GEGENWÄRTIGE BEWEGUNG IM JUDENTHUM: IHRE BERECHTIGUNG UND IHRE BEDEUTUNG. Berlin, C. J. Klemann, 1845. 1st Edition. Modern boards. 12mo. 48 pages. 18 cm. In German. Title translates into English as "The Current [Reform] Movement in Judaism: Its Legitimacy and Meaning.” Important period work on the Reform Movement by one of its key leaders. Sigismund Stern (1812–1867) was a “German teacher and leader of the Berlin Reform movement. After studying philology in Berlin, in 1835 Stern succeeded I. M. Jost as headmaster of the Berlin Jewish boys' school. In 1845 he gave a series of lectures on the tasks of Judaism which aroused wide interest and controversy. He wished to bring about a revival of religious life, waking it from its then current lethargy, which he felt was caused by the contradictions and frustrations faced by Jews in the modern world. Following his proposal calling for the erection of a ‘German-Jewish church, leading classes of Berlin Jewry responded by forming an ‘Association for Reform in Judaism, ’ in which Stern played a central role. Contending that Judaism must free itself from its national heritage, he initiated radical reforms and the separate organization of the reformers in Berlin. In 1848, after standing unsuccessfully as candidate for that year's National Assembly, Stern accepted the directorship of the Frankfurt on the Main Philanthropin Jewish school. He enlarged the institution, raised its academic standards, and introduced pedagogic (but not religious) innovations, which made him an acknowledged leader of the German methods” (EJ, 2007).

[ADRESSBUCH]. Leipzig: Kuhwald, 1938. 1st printing of the 1938 edition. October, 1938. Original illustrated wrappers, 12mo (small), 191 pages, including many, many period ads. Published just one month prior to Kristallnacht, this is a Name and Address Directory of the world’s leading Fur business district, the Brühl, and its counterpart in Berlin, both very heavily Jewish. Divided into 2 sections, one for the Brühl in Leipzig, and the other for Furriers in Berlin. In the 19th and early 20th Century, the “Brühl” had become synonymous with the Leipzig fur and Tobacco trade. It was the name of the large street where the trade was concentrated (also including Nikolai- and Reichs-strasse). The Brühl reached it’s highest density with 794 shops in 1928. Of these, about 58 percent were Jewish run and owned. In the period 1926-1930, the Brühl controlled about one third of the world market in furs. With the great depression, followed by the Nazi seizure of power in 1933, the fur trade went into decline. For political reasons the fascist leadership limited the import quotas for goods from the USSR, such as raw fur. And, of course, increasingly, Jewish merchants in the Brühl were discriminated against and expelled. Many fled to England or the United States, where they established new fur businesses. Following Kristallnacht, which came only 1 month after the publication of this guide in October 1938, it became impossible for Jewish furriers to function. Some of the most famous Jewish fur traders included: Julius (Judel) Ariowitsch (1855-1908); Chaim Eitingon (1857-1932), known as "Fur King from Brühl", founder of the Ez Chaim Synagogue and the Jewish hospital; the Frankel family; the Harmerlin Family; John B. (John [Joel] Berend) Oppenheimer & Company; F. Weiss (1893-1982); and Theodor Wolf (1833). OCLC lists only one holding worldwide (German National Library).

The seminary’s basic aim was to teach ‘positive historical Judaism. ’ The ‘positive’ stood for a faithful adherence to the practical precepts of Judaism, while ‘historical’ permitted free inquiry into the Jewish past, including even Bible criticism, though with some self-imposed limitations” (JewishVirtualLibrary.org, 2016). Every year, the seminary published an annual report with scholarly work by the professors at the seminary, up until the Nazis destroyed the seminary in 1938.

    Unknown Early Photo of the Frankfurt Judengasse

     

  21. JUDENGASSE FRANKFURT (CA 1875 PHTOGRAPH). Frankfurt, Unknown Publisher. No date (ca 1875). Mounted silver gelatin photograph of Judengasse in Frankfurt. 25.5 x 20 cm. The Frankfurter Judengasse “was the Jewish ghetto of Frankfurt and one of the earliest ghettos in Germany. It existed from 1462 until 1811 and was home to Germany’s largest Jewish community in early modern times. At the end of the 19th century, most of the buildings in the Judengasse were demolished. The area suffered major destruction during World War II and reconstruction left no visible signs of the ghetto in today’s townscape of Frankfurt…. By 1854 the Jewish community had torn down the old synagogue (built in 1711) to build a new synagogue in 1859 to 1860. The new synagogue would become the spiritual center of Reform Judaism in Frankfurt until it was destroyed during the Kristallnacht under the Nazis” (Wikipedia 2017). The photograph features the new Reform synagogue. An early silver gelatin print taken with an old camera. The people standing in the photo are blurry and leave imprint of their movement because the photograph took so long to produce. Likely taken just before the buildings were demolished, as they are in poor repair. Includes gas lamps and a pushcart, but no cars. Rare image. Preliminary research did not reveal any like images. SUBJECT(S): Photograph, Frankfurt, Judengasse. Slight toning. Minimal pen markings in upper left of photograph that only affects sky. Very minimal edgewear and rubbing to mount.

    The First Jewish Sermons Published in German, Marking a Critical Shift

     

  29. Wolf, J. [Joseph]. SECHS DEUTSCHE REDEN: GEHALTEN IN DER SYNAGOGE ZU DESSAU NEBST EINER HEBRAISCHEN UEBERSETZUNG DERSELBEN. [COMPLETE IN 2 VOLUMES, SIX SERMONS EACH]. Dessau: M. Philippsohn, (Gedruckt Bei C. Schleider), 1812-1813. 1st Edition. Period Stylized Paper Wrappers. 8vo. 2 Volumes in 1: [119], 102 pages; 16 cm. In German. The first volumes of published German sermons written by a Jew. Title translates into English as “Six German Sermons from the Synagogue in Dessau.” Both volumes have the same title, and each contain six different sermons. In his essay “Preacher, Teacher, Publicist: Joseph Wolf and the Ideology of Emancipation,” Yale University Professor David Sorkin discusses the significance of this publication, suggesting that Wolf "retained his own characteristic version of the Dessau tradition of the conservative Haskalah but gave it a radical turn by altering its context rather than its content. The new context was the German-language media of the journal and the sermon. In 1805 Wolf began to give some of the first German-language sermons in the Dessau synagogue. These were the exception in Central Europe....Wolf's sermons followed the best Enlightenment Protestant models of the time in their elevated diction, sombre tone and clearly demarcated three- or four-part structure. Here the religious Enlightenment, or at least its forms, seemed to have penetrated to the very heart of Judaism, the synagogue....In 1806 Wolf also helped to found the first German-language journal to be published by Jews in Germany, Sulamith....clearly heir to the Haskalah....In the media of the sermon and the German-language journal, Wolf helped lay the foundations of a 'public sphere, ' the organs of communication in which a collective identity and cultural-political consciousness could be created for the emerging German-Jewish middle classes....Wolf gathered the best of his sermons into two volumes. When they appeared in 1821-1813, they were the first volumes of published German sermons written and delivered by a Jew. Wolf's sermons inaugurated a veritable flood of sermonic literature, which continued unabated into the twentieth century. As early as the 1830s some observers were declaring the German-language sermon to be the most important of the abundant innovations aimed at rehabilitating Judaism and the Jews.” (Sorkin, pp.119-122). The significance of this change was not lost on the author, who titled this collection, “Six GERMAN Sermons.” Notably, it was also the last publication of the great Haskalah publisher Moses Philippsohn, who was closely associated with Moses Mendelssohn. “Philippson (1775 — 1814) was a Jewish writer, teacher, translator and publisher … (who) contributed significantly to spreading the German language of the Jews among the Jews, and by fostering the links with German culture.” (Wikipedia, 2017) SUBJECT(S): Jewish sermons, German.

There seems to be no book which, as it were, would be quite a new and independent production, and the more one studies the literary currents of the time, the more one realises an inner connection between one book and the other. One can trace an almost interminable chain although in not a few occasions the intermediary links seem to be broken or to be missing. And yet such connections cannot be denied. Often the authors are unconscious of the fact that they are acting upon a common impulse.

In Sammlung Juedischer Geschichten...(Basle, 1768; repr. 1922), the first comprehensive history of the Jews of Switzerland, he exonerates the Jews from complicity in causing the Black Death and from similar allegations, and urges the Swiss to treat them as equals.

Title translates into English as, “History of the Jews in Regensburg: Memorial Declaration on the Dedication of the New Synagogue.” “The original Regensburg Synagogue, erected between 1210 and 1227, was an edifice in Old Romanesque style in Regensburg, southern Germany, on the site of the former Jewish hospital, in the center of the ghetto, where the present Neue Pfarre stands. Two etchings made by Albrecht Altdorfer of the synagogue shortly before it was destroyed on February 22, 1519 provide the first portrait of an actual architectural monument in European printmaking. In 1519 following the death of Emperor Maximilian, who had long been a protector of the Jews in the imperial cities, extracting from them substantial taxes in exchange, the city of Regensburg, which blamed its economic troubles on its prosperous Jewish community, expelled the 500 Jews. The Jews themselves had demolished the interior of their venerable synagogue, on the site of which a chapel was built in honor of the Virgin. According to a chronicle the exiles settled, under the protection of the Duke of Bavaria, on the opposite bank of the Danube, in Stadt-am-Hof, and in villages in the vicinity; from these they were expelled in the course of the same century… In 1669 Jews were again permitted to reside in Regensburg but it was not until April 2, 1841 that the community was able to dedicate its new synagogue. In 1907 however, it was demolished for fear of collapse. (The Synagogue was rebuilt in 1912 at a different place, when the town had a Jewish population of about 600… it was destroyed by the Nazis on November 9, 1938 during Kristallnacht.” (Wikipedia, 2016) This is belief history from the re-dedication of the synagogue after it was rebuilt in 1913.

Title translates into English as, “Ciritcal Sources and Studies on Josippon.” Inscribed by Luitpold Wallach to JTS Chancellor Louis Finkelstein on the front wrapper. Offprint from Vol 83, the final, 1939 volume of the Monatsschrift für Geschichte und Wissenschaft des Judentums. This volume was barely published in a small number, and few originals survivied. “Josippon is a chronicle of Jewish history from Adam to the age of Titus believed to have been written by Josippon or Joseph ben Gorion. The Ethiopic version of Josippon is recognized as canonical by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church…The Sefer Josippon was compiled in Hebrew early in the 10th century by a Jewish native of the Greek speaking Jewish community of South Italy, which was at that time part of the Byzantine Empire. Later Judah Leon ben Moses Mosconi, a Romaniote Jew from Achrida edited and expanded the Sefer Josippon. The first edition was printed in Mantua in 1476. The book subsequently appeared in many forms, one of the most popular being in Yiddish, with quaint illustrations. Though the chronicle is more legendary than historical, it is not unlikely that ancient sources were used by the first compiler. The book enjoyed great popularity in England. In 1558, Peter Morvyn translated an abbreviated version into English, and edition after edition was called for. Lucien Wolf has shown that the English translations of the Bible aroused so much interest in the Jews that there was a widespread desire to know more about them. This led to the circulation of many editions of Josippon, which thus formed a link in the chain of events which culminated in the readmission of the Jews to England by Oliver Cromwell.” (Wikipedia, 2017) Wrappers are torn.

(He) was born into a family of rabbis …. (and) received his rabbinical training at Hassfurt, Höchberg near Würzburg, Mainz, Altona, and at Frankfurt am Main (under Samson Raphael Hirsch), and his university training at Munich, Berlin, Leipzig, and Erlangen (Ph. D. 1868; his thesis, "Der Segen Jacob's", was one of the earliest Jewish essays in the field of the higher Biblical criticism, and its radical character had the effect of closing to him the Jewish pulpit in Germany). Abraham Geiger, to whose Zeitschrift Kohler became a contributor at an early age, strongly influenced his career and directed his steps to America. In 1869 he accepted a call to the pulpit of the Beth-El congregation in Detroit; in 1871 he became rabbi of Chicago Sinai Congregation. In 1879 he succeeded his father-in-law, David Einhorn, as rabbi of Temple Beth-El, New York City; his brother-in-law, Emil Hirsch, becoming his successor in Chicago. Feb. 26, 1903, he was elected to the presidency of Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati. From the time of his arrival in America, Kohler actively espoused the cause of Reform Judaism; he was one of the youngest members of the Philadelphia Jewish Rabbinical Conference of 1869, and in 1885 he convened the Pittsburgh Rabbinical Conference, which adopted the so-called ‘Pittsburgh Platform’, on which Reform Judaism in America stands. While in Chicago he introduced Sunday lectures as supplementary to the regular Sabbath service.

Berlin: Bi-Defus Hevrat Hinukh Ne`arim, 1813. Period boards. 8vo, 44 pages, 17 cm. In Hebrew. Title translates to: “The Reading of the Torah: For Explaining the Root of Reading and It’s Use...with Be’er Rehovot Letter.” “Explanation of the root of “Kara” and how it was used by the sages in the Talmud. The title page states that it will explain their intent in a clear language and explain the subject of yesh aim le-Mikra and aim le-Messorah, that is, whether a verse is to be understood as it is written or as it is read. It also addresses other issues in the Talmud built upon the structure of the Hebrew language. There are approbations from Rabbi Akiva Eger and from Rabbi Simha Wiel. An apologia from the author follows, and then the text, in a single column in rabbinic type. It begins with introductory material and continues, in the order of issues in the Talmud. After the discourses based on the Talmud is a strong refutation (33a-44b) on modifications to the accepted liturgy in the book Iggeret beit Tefillah by Isaac Satanof (1732-1804). The latter was a Haskalah writer, who, in his book, classified every word that he explained as either "Hebrew" or "talmudic,” and proceeded to clarify this question at other opportunities as well. Satanof attempted to break out of the strict framework of biblical style, although he himself was very adept in the biblical style called melizah. Hence he demanded that new words be coined; in Iggeret Beit Tefillah he complains that the vocabulary of biblical Hebrew had not preserved its great lexical range. Rabbi Coeslin was also the author of Mesilol bedikduk Loshon ha-Kodesh. SUBJECTS: Masorah. Hebrew language -- Lexicography. Hebrew language -- Lexicography. Masorah. OCLC lists 9 copies worldwide.

Title translates into English as, “The Rabbi, His Life and His Views.” Jacob Samuel Zuri-Szezak (1884–1943), lawyer, authority on Hebrew law, and author. Zuri, who was born in Poland, studied in France and Germany. After immigrating to Palestine after World War I, he lectured for a time at the Jerusalem Law School. In 1927 he moved to Paris and in 1931 to London. Zuri's single scholarly purpose was to introduce into the European study of Greek, Roman, and Islamic law the data of the Jewish legal tradition. He published most of his 31 works in Hebrew, because, as a Zionist, he hoped to lay the foundation for a system of legislation for the coming Jewish state. In his biographical studies and in his analysis of Jewish jurisprudence, Zuri distinguishes between two main currents in rabbinical methodology, the southern, characteristic of Judean scholars, and the northern, of Galilean scholars. These recur in Babylonian Sura and Nehardea-Pumbedita, respectively. Southern methodology seeks for the underlying unity of surface differences. In mishnaic study, a southerner will relate the view of an anonymous Mishnah to the total view held by a tannaitic authority or to an abstract legal principle. Northern methodology concentrates on concrete characteristics of cases and looks for fine individual differences. In mishnaic controversy, the northerner looks for an explanation of difference in the differing circumstances of specific cases. Zuri worked out these principles in, among others, the following works: Rab, sein Leben und seine Anschauungen (1918); Rabbi Akiva (Heb., 1924); Rav Ashi (Heb. 1924); Tarbut ha-Deromim (1924); Toledot Darkhei ha-Limmud (1914); Toledot ha-Mishpat ha-Zibburi ha-Ivri (3 vols. 1931–34); and Tarbut ha-Deromim (1924). Zuri made a substantial contribution to the study of talmudic history and law. Inscribed on title page.

They insisted on Mendelssohn telling them his views on Jesus and managed to get from him the statement, that, provided the historical Jesus had kept himself and his theology strictly within limits of orthodox Judaism, Mendelssohn ‘respected the morality of Jesus' character. ’ Six years later, in October 1769, Lavater sent Mendelssohn his German translation of Charles Bonnet's essay on Christian Evidences, with a preface where he publicly challenged Mendelssohn to refute Bonnet or if he could not then to ‘do what wisdom, the love of truth and honesty must bid him, what a Socrates would have done if he had read the book and found it unanswerable. ’ Mendelssohn answered in an open letter in December 1769: ‘Suppose there were living among my contemporaries a Confucius or a Solon, I could, according to the principles of my faith, love and admire the great man without falling into the ridiculous idea that I must convert a Solon or a Confucius. ’ The ongoing public controversy cost Mendelssohn much time, energy and strength. Lavater later described Mendelssohn in his book … as ‘a companionable, brilliant soul, with piercing eyes, the body of an Aesop [who was traditionally considered ugly]—a man of keen insight, exquisite taste and wide erudition [...] frank and open-hearted’ … When, in 1775 the Swiss-German Jews, faced with the threat of expulsion, turned to Mendelssohn and asked him to intervene on their behalf with ‘his friend’ Lavater, Lavater, after receiving Mendelssohn's letter, promptly and effectively secured their stay.” (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S): Mendelssohn, Moses.

On recto of added title page: Schriften hrsg. Vom Institute zur förderung der israelitischen literatur...3. Jahr: 1857-1858. Bibliothek jüischer chroniken und reisewerke. 1.” HaCohen was a historian and physician of the 16th century; in his "' Emek ha-Bakah,” "he dwells upon the sorrows and sufferings the Jews endured in various countries in the course of centuries. The book, which is a martyrology from beginning to end, closes with the 24th of Tammuz, 5335 (1575). The author's moderation and self-control are admirable. His work is valuable also on account of its brilliant narrative, excellent characterization, and fine Biblical style. Having lived in Italy from his childhood and become acquainted with persons prominent politically, he is a valuable source for the history of his time; concerning many events, he had closely examined competent witnesses. He also mentions a number of important facts ignored by other historians.” (Eduard Neumann and Richard Gottheil, JE) SUBJECT(S): Jews -- History -- A. D. 70- Jews -- Persecutions.

Title translates as “Mr. Robert von Mohl and the Jewish Emancipation; a reply” in English. Jewish emancipation “was the external (and internal) process in various nations in Europe of eliminating Jewish disabilities, e. G. Jewish quotas, to which Jewish people were then subject, and the recognition of Jews as entitled to equality and citizenship rights on a communal, not merely individual, basis” (Wikipedia, 2016). Emancipation was a slow process and many regions were reluctant to enact change. Jewish emancipation was a hot topic in Berlin in 1869 because of the flux in powers in the region; as new powers declared Berlin their capital, they wrote new constitutions, constitutions that had the potential to either eliminate existing emancipation laws or add new ones. In 1869, the year in which this book was written, Berlin went from being the capital of Prussia, which had emancipated Jews in 1812, to being the capital of the North German Confederation, which, emancipated Jews in 1869, this very year. Dr. Isidor Kastan, a German journalist, writer, and physician, defended Jewish emancipation, and here disputed von Mohl’s anti-Jewish views. SUBJECT(S): Jewish Emancipation, Anti-Semitism.

[ix], 140 pages; 33 cm. In German. Title translates into English as, “Thesaurus of Hebrew Oriental Melodies: Songs of the Babylonian Jews.” “Abraham Zevi Idelsohn (1882 –1938) was a prominent Jewish ethnologist, musicologist and composer, who conducted several comprehensive studies of Jewish music around the world. Idelsohn was born in Feliksberg, Latvia and trained as a cantor. He worked briefly in both Europe and South Africa before emigrating to Palestine in 1905 and establishing a school of Jewish music there in 1919. In 1922 he moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to take a position as professor of Jewish music at Hebrew Union College… Idelsohn is generally acknowledged as the ‘father’ of modern musicology. During his time in Jerusalem, he noted a great diversity of musical traditions among the Jews living in the region. Idelsohn examined these traditional melodies and found recurring motifs and progressions that were not found in any other national music. This suggested a common origin for musical phrases that went back to Israel/Palestine in the first century C. E. He found that these motifs fell into three distinct tonal centers, which corresponded to the Dorian, Phrygian, and Lydian modes of the ancient Greeks. Each of these modes elicited a distinct psycho-emotional response. The Dorian Mode was used for texts of an elevated and inspired nature; the Phrygian for sentimental texts, with their very human outbreaks of feeling, both of joy and grief; and the Lydian was used in composing music for the texts of lamenting and confessions of sins. Idelsohn further categorized and defined these motives as ones that either prepared a musical phrase, began it, or concluded it. His works include the monumental Thesaurus of Hebrew Oriental Melodies (10 volumes, 1914–1932) and Jewish Music (1929). He is considered to be the author of the lyrics of the famous Jewish folk song ‘Hava Nagila. ’” (Wikipedia, 2016) Very Good+ Condition. An outstanding copy. (Music-7-19) (ID #36815) $200.00.

ISBN: 3950004300; 9783950004304; National Library: 921365640. “Salomon Sulzer (1804 -1890) was an Austrian hazzan (cantor) and composer… In 1820 Sulzer was appointed cantor at Hohenems, where he modernized the ritual, and introduced a choir. At the instance of Rabbi Isaac Noah Mannheimer of Vienna he was called to the Austrian capital as chief cantor in 1826. There he reorganized the song service of the synagogue, retaining the traditional chants and melodies, but harmonizing them in accordance with modern views… His responses are tuneful, and though more melodious than the choral chant of the Catholic Church, show a strong resemblance to it. In all his compositions strict attention is paid to the Hebrew text; and a scrupulous adherence to syntactic construction is observed throughout. The collection ‘Zwanzig Gesänge für den Israelitischen Gottesdienst’ (Vienna, 1892) was printed posthumously. In his ‘Denkschrift an die Wiener Cultusgemeinde’ he sums up his ideas on the profession of cantor. Sulzer, who was widely famed as a singer and as an interpreter of Schubert, was a professor at the imperial conservatorium of Vienna, a knight of the Order of Francis Joseph I and a maestro of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome. Universally recognized as the regenerator of synagogal music, he has been called the "father of the modern cantorate"(wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S): Exhibition catalog from 1991. Reformjudentum.

STUDIES IN JEWISH LITERATURE, ISSUED IN HONOR OF PROFESSOR KAUFMANN KOHLER, PH.D., PRESIDENT HEBREW UNION COLLEGE, CINCINNATI, OHIO, ON THE OCCASION OF HIS SEVENTIETH BIRTHDAY, MAY THE TENTH, NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTEEN. Berlin, G. Reimer, 1913. Paper wrappers, large 8vo., 301 pages. In German and English. Beautifully printed frontis piece portrait of Kohler. Kohler (1843–1926), was a “U. S. Reform rabbi and president of Hebrew Union College. Kaufmann Kohler was born in Fuerth, Bavaria, long known as a center of rabbinic learning, and was himself descended from rabbinic stock. He pursued rabbinical studies from an early age and in 1862 entered the gymnasium at Frankfurt. While in that city he came under the influence of Samson Raphael Hirsch, champion of Neo-Orthodoxy, and, though later diverging sharply from his viewpoint, never ceased to pay tribute to his influence. Kohler pursued his university studies at Berlin and Erlangen, receiving a doctorate in 1867. His university studies had shattered Kohler's Orthodoxy and his doctoral thesis, Der Segen Jacobs (1867), took such a radical viewpoint that no rabbinic position was open to him. For a time he continued his studies at Leipzig with a view to entering the academic world, but, warmly recommended by the German Reform leader Abraham Geiger, Kohler accepted the office of rabbi of Congregation Beth El, Detroit (1869). In 1871 he moved to Sinai Congregation, Chicago (where he introduced Sunday services in 1874), and in 1879 he succeeded his father-in-law, David Einhorn, at Temple Beth El, New York. Kohler emerged as a national champion of Reform Judaism in 1885 when, replying to attacks by Alexander Kohut, he published a series of sermons entitled Backward or Forward (1885). The outcome was his convening of the Pittsburgh Conference of Reform Rabbis and its adoption of a radical program on the basis of Kohler's draft. In 1903 Kohler was appointed president of Hebrew Union College and set about immediately to improve the curriculum and to bring fresh talent to the faculty. His dealings were not always diplomatic, and he was soon involved in a clash with several members of the faculty on the subject of Zionism, which he opposed. He became the chief spokesman for classical Reform. His major theological work was Jewish Theology Systematically and Historically Considered (1918; repub. 1968), which traces Jewish thought from the perspective of 19th-century Reform Judaism. He revamped the curriculum, introduced biblical criticism and reduced the time spent on Talmud, but also held daily services and taught reverence through study. Under his presidency the College moved to a new, spacious setting. Upon his retirement, Kohler received the title of president emeritus (1921) and returned to New York.” (Temkin & Berenbaum, EJ, 2007) Contents: Biographical sketch of Dr. K. Kohler by M. J.

Nietzsche’s body of work touched widely on art, philology, history, religion, tragedy, culture, and science, and drew early inspiration from figures such as Schopenhauer, Wagner, and Goethe. His writing spans philosophical polemics, poetry, cultural criticism, and fiction while displaying a fondness for aphorism and irony” (Wikipedia 2017). Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None “is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885… Much of the work deals with ideas such as the “eternal recurrence of the same,” the parable of the “death of God,” and the “prophecy” of the Ubermensch, which were first introduced in The Gay Science” (Wikipedia 2017).

While not specifying the manner of this return or which role woman had to play in Judaism and in the Yishuv, she invited women to take part in the creation of a Jewish community, even if they had not previously seen their space in this context because of a rigid male conception of Jewish femininity.

The play, composed at Hamburg, was Hebbel's first tragedy. The following year it was performed in Hamburg and Berlin, making the German poet known throughout Germany. Based on the deuterocanonical Book of Judith, Hebbel's adaptation presents a heroine who oversteps the boundaries of proper womanhood as defined by his 19th-century upbringing. Changing the political plot of the biblical story into a psychological investigation, he invests Judith with a sexuality and beauty that prove fatal to the men around her: she is left a virgin on her wedding night because her beauty (or so she believes) renders her husband Manasses impotent, and in Holofernes's tent, she subconsciously exercises her repressed sexual desire, leading Holofernes to rape her so that she can subsequently behead him…” (Wikipedia, 2017) SUBJECT(S): Judith (Biblical figure) -- Drama.

The elder brother of author and scholar Matthias Mieses, Józef Mieses was born in Przemysl and lived there until he completed his high school education in 1900. Sent to Vienna to study in the rabbinical seminary and university, he was ordained as a rabbi and received his doctorate in 1907… Over the decades, Mieses published a number of articles in scholarly journals in Poland and abroad on issues involving Jewish culture and linguistics, including a critical study of Sa‘adyah Gaon’s Arabic translation of the Torah and a supplement to Jacob Levy’s Talmudic dictionary. Following the outbreak of World War I, Mieses escaped to Vienna as a refugee, where he devoted himself to research in the city’s libraries. In 1916 he was appointed a chaplain in the Austro-Hungarian army, with the rank of captain, for the Tenth Corps, whose headquarters were located in Przemysl…In 1920 he joined the Polish army and was named chief Jewish chaplain, with the rank of colonel, serving until 1932.” (YIVO, 2016) Margaritha was a 16th century Hebraist who converted to Christianity. “He is best known for the 1530 book Der Fantze Jüdisch Glaub (The Whole Jewish Belief).” (Wikipedia, 2016) The book influenced Martin Luther’s anti-semitic treatise “On the Jews and Their Lies.” SUBJECT(S): Margaritha, Anton.

Philadelphia, 1875. 1st edition thus. Original cloth binding, 8vo, [4], 164, 20 pages (188 pages total). Text in Hebrew and German. Goldman 63; This edition unrecorded and apparently unknown to Ya'ari or Yudlov. THE FIRST AMERICAN REFORM HAGGADAH. Higayon Lev (Logic of the Heart) was a liturgical volume for private devotion which was published to supplement the popular Avodat Yisrael prayerbook that Jastrow had created, based on the earlier work of Benjamin Szold. Jastrow’s revisions “creatively modified the classical contours of the Siddur preserved in Szold’s version and added many new prayers. ” Among its contents are: selections from Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers); daily prayers for women, children (and adults who lack the time to complete the regular liturgy), all accompanied by a non-literal German translation. There is also a fascinating appendix of children’s prayers which includes, in addition to the more standard basic prayers, special prayers to be recited on one’s birthday as well as on a parent’s birthday. The most important component of the new edition however is Jastrow's Haggadah, (pages 35-54), the first printed in America that demonstrates the influence of Reform. Here, the Hebrew elements are reduced to a minimum and incorporate many emendations, even to such quintessential texts as Ha Lahma Anya, Vehi She’amdah and the Four Questions (here reduced to a single query). When Jastrow reprinted the text with an English translation three years later, he wrote, "this plain narrative is well adapted to suggest many a thought as to what duties are incumbent on the Israelites of our own days, and especially in countries like ours where the morn of religious liberty has already dawned and is shedding its roseate light over all inhabitants alike. ” SUBJECT(S): Judaism -- Prayers and devotions.

Title translates as: “The last Passover meal of Christ and the day of his death, according to the report of the Synoptics put into accordance with the Gospel of John.” Anastatic reprint of the edition of 1892, with three supplements, containing additions and improvements of the author. D. A. Chwolson (Daniel Avraamovich Khvolson, 1819–1911) was a Russian Orientalist. “Chwolson was born of poor, devout Jewish parents in Vilna. In 1841 he went to Breslau, where Abraham *Geiger befriended him and helped him prepare for matriculation at the university. Later he returned to Russia, settling in St. Petersburg. In 1855 Chwolson became a convert of the Russian Orthodox Church. He was then appointed professor of Hebrew, Syriac, and Chaldaic philology at the University of St. Petersburg, and three years later he was given the corresponding chair at both the Russian Orthodox and Roman Catholic theological academies in the same city. In this triple capacity he taught practically every eminent Semitic scholar in Russia during the second half of the 19th century and after. Among his disciples were the greatest Russian Orientalists. Despite his conversion, Chwolson remained well disposed toward Jews and Judaism and retained his friendship with many eminent Jewish scholars and leaders. He was particularly welcome in Jewish Orthodox circles because of his frequent intervention on their behalf when government officials threatened the yeshivot or the publication of the Talmud. “Das letzte Passahmahl Christi und der Tag seines Todes” (1892), while meant as an answer to antisemitic accusations, is a learned and detailed investigation of the circumstances of Jesus' trial and condemnation. In it Chwolson attempted to prove that Jesus was sentenced to death by the Sadducean high court and that therefore the Pharisees and masses of Jews bear no guilt.” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica). “The deep-rooted belief that Jesus was crucified by the Jews being the principal cause of the prejudice against them on the part of the Christians, Chwolson, in a dissertation entitled "Poslyedniyaya Paskhalnaya Vecherya Isusa Christa I Den yevo Smerti,” in "Christianskoe Chtenie,” St. Petersburg, 1875 (German translation, "Das Letzte Passamal Christi,” ib. 1892), shows the groundlessness of this belief. He points out that the proceedings of the trial and condemnation of Jesus, as related in the Gospels, were in violation of the rabbinical laws, and consequently could not have been conducted by a Jewish tribunal.” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia).

Haggadah. “Nach dem forschungssystem Rabbiner Samson Raphael Hirschs erlautert von Dr. A. Michalski” Haggadah with the commentary of Rabbi Samson Hirsch, explained by Dr. A. Michalski. “Hirsch was born in 1808 in Hamburg, Germany. He went to the public schools, where he was strongly influenced by Schiller and Hegel, and received his Jewish education at home. His father was an observant Jew. His grandfather, Mendel Frankfurter, was the founder of the Talmud Torah in Hamburg. Through the education of his teachers, considered German Jewry's greatest Talmudists, who were proficient in both non-Jewish and Jewish culture, Hirsch decided to train for the rabbinate with the aim of demonstrating that traditional Judaism and Western culture are compatible with each other…Hirsch was both a modernist and a traditionalist. His community became known as a model for communities strict in adherance to halakha, hence the term "neo-Orthodoxy.” In his work, The Nineteenth Letters of Ben Uziel, he remarked that it would have been better for the Jews not to have been emancipated if the price to pay was assimilation. While Hirsch was a scholar and child of the Haskalah, he had no tolerance for the historical approach to Judaism (then an emerging school under Zecharia Frankel and the forerunner of the Conservative movement) as he felt it produced a relativistic attitude toward Torah. He fully believed in the total Divinity of the Torah and rejected the idea that law could be changed as a conscious process of historic development. Hirsch's understanding of modern Judaism became known as "Torah im Derekh Eretz,” after the verse in Pirke Avot (2: 2) that "Torah is good together with derekh eretz.” In the context of the Mishna, derekh eretz means an occupation but Hirsch expanded its meaning to include full engagement with western culture, while maintaining adherence to Jewish law. In this, he created the idea of the "Israel-Mentsch,” the enlightened religious personality. While he believed that style or non-halakhic externalities could be changed, he believed that the essence of Jewish law and belief could not change” (Jewish Virtual Library). Slight toning.

He was one of the founders of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Wissenschaft des Judenthums, which held its first meeting in Berlin in Nov., 1902." (Isidodre Singer, JE) "The dignity of man is central to Cohen's ethical thought. A proponent of humanistic socialism, he regarded a nation's treatment of its working classes as an index of its level of morality. While he called Marx "God's historical messenger,” he rejected historical materialism as well as the atheistic trends prevalent in the workers' movement.” (Samuel Hugo Bergman, EJ) SUBJECT(S): Judaism.

Title translates as “Herman Cohen: Who Preached Morality and His Teachings in Judaism.” Includes portraits and facsimiles. Klatzkin (1882-1948) was an “author, philosopher, and Zionist. Klatzkin was born in Bereza Kartuska, Brest-Litovsk district, today Belarus. 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-Hayyim, and in Der Erkenntnistrieb als Lebens und Todesprinzip” (Sole and Scheps in EJ, 2007).

Encyclopaedia Judaica vol 14, col. 299. - Dahm II, 849. - Walk 317. - Stern 309f. SUBJECT (S): Judaism. Jodendom. Christendom. Rosenzweig, the renowned German Jewish philosopher, “was born in Kassel, Germany, the only son of well-to-do parents. His father Georg financially supported many charity institutions, including the Jewish community, but the family's adherence to Judaism was minimal. In his youth, Franz came under the influence of his great-uncle, Adam Rosenzweig, a bachelor, an artist and a learned Jew, who lived in the Rosenzweig home and spent many hours with Franz. Through him the young boy learned of the Jewish world in an otherwise assimilated milieu. Unlike the rest of his family, Rosenzweig fasted on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and also took private Hebrew lessons…In 1909, Rosenzweig tended towards assimilation, and justified the conversion of his cousin Hans Ehrenberg to Christianity. He did not see the advantage that Judaism could have over Christianity, the dominant culture, which would also help him obtain a teaching position, almost impossible for a Jew to get. Another cousin and friend, Rudolf Ehrenberg was already born a Christian. Eugen Rosenstock, a Jewish convert to Christianity, became Rosenzweig's closest friend. Rosenstock, who would become an important nonconformist Protestant theologian, repeatedly urged him to abandon what he considered Rosenzweig's merely nominal Judaism and to convert. After months of deep conversations, and especially the catastrophic conversation with Rosenstock during the night of July 7, 1913, Rosenzweig decided to convert. But he then made the condition, to convert not "as a pagan,” but "as a Jew.” All this led to a crisis and almost to suicide. He left his converted friends for a few years and refrained from having any contact with them. In the same year, on Yom Kippur of 1913, he attended in Berlin the synagogue of Rabbi Petuchowski and felt a profound identification with the praying Jewish community. After a few days he wrote his friends, "I shall remain a Jew.” He then reshaped his life, rethought his identity, and devoted his further life to a sincere return to Judaism, moving from the periphery of Jewish life to its center.” (Meir, Horwitz, EJ, 2007) Very Good Condition.

He lived during the troubled times of the Mongol invasions, much of the time in Damascus. He was a member of the school founded by Ahmad ibn Hanbal and is considered by his followers, along with Ibn Qudamah, as one of the two most significant proponents of Hanbalism. In the modern era, his adherents often refer to the two as ‘the two sheikhs’ and Ibn Taymiyyah in particular as ‘Sheikh ul-Islam. ’ (He) sought the return of Sunni Islam to what he viewed as earlier interpretations of the Qur'an and the Sunnah, and is considered to have had considerable influence in contemporary Wahhabism, Salafism, and Jihadism. He is renowned for his fatwa issued against the Mongol rulers declaring jihad by Muslims against them compulsory, on the grounds that they did not follow Sharia and as such were not Muslim… His teachings had a profound influence on Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, and other later Wahabi scholars.” (Wikipedia, 2016) This copy belongd to Rabbi David Zvi Hoffman. “Hoffman (1843 – 1921) was an Orthodox Rabbi and Torah Scholar. Born in Verbó in 1843, he attended various Yeshivas in his native town before he entered the college at Pressburg, from which he graduated in 1865… His rabbinical training was at the hands of Moshe Schick and Azriel Hildesheimer. Shortly after obtaining his degree, he became employed as a teacher in Samson Raphael Hirsch's Realschule school in Frankfurt am Main, and in 1873 moved to Berlin to join the faculty of the Rabbinical Seminary of Berlin where he eventually became rector in 1899 after the death of Azriel Hildesheimer… Hoffman was the leading authority on traditional halakha (Jewish law) in Germany in his lifetime… He was also known for his efforts to disprove the Documentary Hypothesis, as expressed by the Graf-Wellhausen theory, with his arguments presented in the work Die wichtigsten Instanzen gegen die Graf-Wellhausensche Hypothese…” (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S): Islam -- Prayers and devotions.

Title translates as “Songs for Jewish Public Worship.” The Kneseth Israel (Philadelphia) board minutes from May 4, 1862, note that: “A communication from Dr. Einhorn was handed in and reads as follows: ‘To the respectable board of directors of Keneseth Israel! Since there is a decided shortage of hymn books not only in our reform congregation but in all the others in America, I am determined to put together a collection of songs, about 80-90 pages. They should be put to use during the service, and I will give them to the congregation if the congregation is wiling to undertake the printing....I suggest to the respectable board to take over the publication of the hymn collection and let me know soon, that the printing can start. Philadelphia, April 28, 1862. Dr. Einhorn. ’ Decided, to accept the communication from Dr. Einhorn and make preparations for the printing” [translation of minutes located at KI and at HUC in Cincinnati]. Then, according to the minutes of the next meeting, the board decided to fund the printing, which included 100 “bound volumes.” Reform Liturgy Scholar Judah Cohen has noted that “the hymnal was almost entirely Einhorn, at least based on these records, and created in his view as a service to the growing reform movement.” Rabbi Dr. Lance Sussman, Senior Rabbi at Kenesseth Israel in Philadelphia and a scholar on the history of the Synagogue and on 19th Century American Jewish history, reported on the H-Judaic internet listserv that “I believe from the time Einhorn arrived in Baltimore from Europe in 1855, KI was in touch with him about its music program. KI had a gentile organist, William Fischer, who partnered with Einhorn both before and during Einhorn's time in Philly.” Einhorn had fled Baltimore on April 19, 1861, following his delivery of an anti-Slavery sermon; a mob sought to tar and feather and he fled to Philadelphia where he became spiritual leader of Congregation Keneseth Israel.

Title translates into English as, “Ben Chananja: A Monthly for Jewish Studies.” The second major volume of the first Jewish periodical published in Hungary. “Judah Leib ‘Leopold’ Löw (1811 – 1875) was a Hungarian rabbi, regarded as the most important figure of Neolog Judaism…Löw early in his career acquired a knowledge of Hungarian, and was the first to introduce it into the synagogue service, his first sermon in that language being printed in 1845. In 1844 he began his literary activity in behalf of the emancipation of the Hungarian Jews, taking the lead in that struggle until its object was attained (1867). The periodical ‘Ben Chananja, ’ edited by him from 1858 to 1867, was an especially influential factor in this movement.” (Wikipeida, 2017) “Ben Chananja was a Hungarian German-language periodical published initially in 1844 and then between 1858 and 1867, edited by Leopold Löw. When Löw published what was to be the first Jewish periodical in Hungary, Ben Chananja: Blätter für israelitisch-ungarische Angelegenheiten in 1844, his choice of German was praised by contemporaries as realistic, given that few Hungarian Jews at the time were fluent in Magyar. The quarterly was discontinued after the pilot issue. Löw was more successful in 1858 when he revived the paper in his community of Szeged at a time when no other Jewish periodicals were being published in Hungary. It bore the same title (the editor did not clarify the significance of the title but it clearly hinted at his admiration for the Talmudic sage), and appeared first as a monthly, from 1861 as a weekly, and from 1865 on as a biweekly (subtitled für jüdische Theologie).” (YIVO, 2017) OCLC lists as many as 28 copies worldwide.

Son of Abraham Geiger, he studied at his father's Hochschule in Berlin and concluded his academic studies with a dissertation, presented to Leopold yon Ranke, on the attitude of Greek and Roman authors to Judaism and Jews. In 1880 he was appointed professor of German literature and cultural history at Berlin University. Geiger was a versatile scholar, editor, and translator. His major contributions were to Renaissance, Humanism, and Reformation studies, German-Jewish history, and research on Goethe. Even when treating the first and last subjects he remained particularly conscious of the Jewish aspect.… Founder and editor of Zeitschrift fuer die Geschichte der Juden in Deutschland (1887-92), he also wrote Geschichte der Juden in Berlin (2 vols., 1871), Die deutsche Literatur und die Juden (1910), and numerous articles on German Jewish history.… he also wrote on Goethe's relationship to Jews and Judaism. Geiger edited his father's Nachgelassene Schriften (5 vols., 1875-78) and other works; he also wrote a biography of his father, Abraham Geiger, Leben und Lebenswerk (with others, 1910).Geiger was a vigorous exponent of liberalism and Reform Judaism and an opponent of political Zionism. In 1911, in his birthday letter to the kaiser, he courageously protested against the social discrimination to which German Jews were subjected. From 1909 he edited the leading Jewish newspaper, Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums. His unpublished works include a projected edition of the correspondence of Leopold Zunz" (Rudolf Kayser in EJ).
