"by the Rev. Dr. G. Gottheil, Minister of the Congregation of British Jews... ; published by special request of the Congregation. " The discourses are based on Isaiah xlii. 6, 7 and Leviticus xxxix. 43. Cyrus Adler and Frank H. Vizetelly note in the JE that during Gottheil's time in Manchester, "Two of his most noteworthy sermons preached in Manchester were on the slavery question, attacking those who had declared the institution to be sanctioned by Mosaic law. " He was a "Reform rabbi, liturgist, and U. S. Zionist leader. Gottheil was born in Pinne, Posen. He was drawn to liberal Judaism at the University of Berlin, and studied with such scholars as Steinschneider and Zunz. During 1855-60 Gottheil was a teacher at the Reform Gemeinde in Berlin and preaching assistant to Samuel Holdheim, who impressed him deeply. In Manchester, England, where he served the progressive Congregation of British Jews from 1869 [sic 1859] to 1873, Gottheil mastered English, then joined Temple Emanu-El of New York City in 1873 as co-rabbi to the aging Samuel Adler. Challenging the ethical culture theories of Felix Adler, son of Samuel Adler, Gottheil espoused a more traditional theistic Judaism, and was upheld by the congregation. He attempted to maintain a rabbinical school under Emanu-El's auspices during 1874-85, but it had very few students. Gottheil published a hymnal in 1886 and a devotional compilation Sun and Shield (1896). He voluntarily abandoned issuing his own prayer book in favor of the Union Prayer Book, which included a number of his translations and renderings. The most important American rabbi publicly to support Zionism during the First Zionist Congress in 1897, Gottheil, his son Richard Gottheil, and Stephen S. Wise were among the founders of the Federation of American Zionists. Gottheil was a teacher and friend to such young rabbis as Stephen S. Wise, Leon Harrison, and Samuel Schulman. In a sense he was a bridge from the German beginnings of Reform to its Eastern-as distinct from Midwestern-American flowering" (Bertram Wallace Korn in EJ).

He was active in communal affairs and was a member of the rabbinical court of Joseph Caro, who conferred upon him the full ordination which had been reintroduced by R. Jacob Berab. Alshekh in turn ordained in 1590 Hayyim Vital, who was his disciple in halakhah. His major field of interest was halakhah but, acceding to requests to preach on Sabbaths, in the course of preparing his sermons he occupied himself also with Bible exegesis. He also engaged in the study of the Kabbalah, from which he derived the fundamentals of his religious philosophy. According to one tradition, Isaac Luria sought to dissuade him from pursuing kabbalistic studies...He participated there in a rabbinical court session in the spring of 1593.

‫ פני יהושע :פנים חדשות ... חלק רביעי : על מסכתות חולין, מכות, שבועות ועל חושן משפט ... PENE YEHOSHU`A: PANIM HADASHOT... HELEK REVI`I: `AL MASEKHTOT HULIN, MAKOT, SHEVU`OT VE-`AL HOSHEN MISHPAT... Fyorda (Fürth): Ba-bayit uva-defus ha-meshubah Itsak ben Leb (Leyb) , 1779. Half Leather, 4to, 81 leaves. 32 cm. In Hebrew. Edited by Abraham ben Judah Loeb Friedburg. At end is Hidushe pene Aryeh on Bava kamma by Aryeh Loeb ben Jacob Joshua. Hidushe Mahril on Bava Mezia by Judah Loeb Friedburg. Falk, a leading rabbi and halakhic authority, was "born in Cracow and was a descendant of Joshua Heschel b. Joseph of Cracow, the author of Meginnei Shelomo. He studied in Polish yeshivot and took up residence in Lemberg after his marriage to the daughter of Solomon Segal Landau, an important member of that community. There he was appointed inspector of the talmud torah. He became wealthy and was a leader of the community. In 1702 his wife, daughter, mother-in-law, and her father were killed by the explosion of a gunpowder storehouse, and he himself was miraculously saved. As a result he vowed "to apply himself diligently to the study of the Talmud and the Codes" (Introduction to the Penei Yehoshu'a). He left Lemberg and served as rabbi in the communities of Tarlow, Kurow, and Lesko (Lisko) successively. In 1717 he was invited to become rabbi of Lemberg, succeeding Zevi Hirsch Ashkenazi (the Hakham Zevi). His yeshivah became the central yeshivah of Poland. Falk was one of the most extreme opponents of the Shabbatean movement, then gaining ground in Poland, and he excommunicated the Shabbateans in 1722. In consequence of the opposition he had aroused, he was compelled to leave Lemberg in 1724 and went to Buczacz where he lived for some years. Between 1730 and 1734 he served as rabbi of Berlin. He then accepted an invitation to succeed Jacob Reischer as rabbi of Metz and remained there until 1741. From Metz he went to Frankfort where he was rabbi until 1751. The hostile attitude of the town authorities and internal communal quarrels following his intervention in the controversy around Jonathan Eybeschuetz, in which he sided with Jacob Emden, caused his resignation and departure from the city, and he lived for a time in Mannheim and Worms. He continued his campaign against Eybeschuetz, sending him a letter entitled "the final warning" on Sivan 11, 1751 and in 1752 excommunicated him. In response to the demands of the Altona community that he rescind the ban, Falk demanded that Eybeschuetz appear before a bet din of three ordained rabbis to answer for his actions. H. J. D. Azulai, who repeatedly praised Falk's wide knowledge (as well as that of his second wife) , visited him in Worms in 1754. Falk told him some "dismaying details" about the affair, and Azulai expressed his shock at the "desecration of the Torah and the defamation of the Divine Name" as a result of the publication of the dispute between the Jewish scholars. From Worms Falk went to Offenbach, where he died. He was buried in Frankfort and although he requested that no eulogy should be said after his death he was eulogized by Ezekiel Landau (see Frankfort Memorbuch, National Library, Jerusalem). Falk became renowned through his Penei Yehoshu'a, regarded as one of the outstanding works of novellae on the Talmud. Since Falk's grandfather published responsa under the same title ("The Face of Joshua") , the grandson called his work Appei Zutrei ("The Small Face") to distinguish it from Ravrevei ("The Large Face") of his grandfather. The work is distinguished by its penetrating explanation of difficult talmudic themes. Originally published in separate parts-Berakhot and the order Mo'ed (Frankfort, 1752) ; Ketubbot, Gittin, and Kiddushin, with Kunteres Aharon (Amsterdam, 1739) ; Bava Kamma and Bava Mezia (Frankfort, 1756) , Hullin, Makkot, and Shevu'ot and a second edition on Mo'ed and the Tur, Hoshen Mishpat (Fuerth, 1780) -it was published together for the first time in Lemberg in 1809...In his introduction to the Penei Yehoshu'a he asserts that he always took care that his conclusions should be in conformity with the halakhah of the Talmud and the Codes and was careful not to commit to writing any novellae which did not conform with the truth, "but whenever something new occurred to me on a talmudic topic or in explanation of Rashi and tosafot and it appeared to me to approximate to the truth, according to the method of our predecessors and teachers, I accepted it. " He also stresses that his sole purpose was "to stimulate the scholar and to bring about a more profound analysis on the part of those who already know how to arrive at halakhic decisions. " These features of the work explain its constant popularity among students, and its frequent reprints. He emphasizes that Kabbalah is sometimes of help in explaining the aggadot; but despite his reliance on the Zohar and on the works of kabbalists (Penei Yehoshu'a to Ber. 10a) he declares "we have no dealings with esoteric lore. " His son Aryeh Lieb (1715-1789) "accompanied his father to Germany. He was appointed rosh yeshivah in Frankfort during his father's incumbency, and held the position from 1745 to 1750. When his father left Frankfort, Aryeh Leib was appointed rabbi of Sokal, then in Poland. In 1754 he signed the excommunication against the Frankists in Brody. From 1761 to 1789 he was rabbi of Hanover. In the affair of the Cleves get he supported Israel Lipschuetz. He published the fourth part of his father's Penei Yehoshu'a, adding to it his own novellae to Bava Kamma under the title Penei Aryeh (Fuerth, 1780). He was succeeded as rabbi of Hanover by his son ISSACHAR BERISH (1747-1807). Issachar's son, SAMUEL, was appointed rabbi of Groningen, Holland, in 1802. After about seven years he succeeded his brother-in-law, Jehiel Aryeh Leib Loewenstamm, as rabbi of Leeuwarden, Holland. In 1815 he succeeded his father-in-law as rabbi of the Ashkenazi community of Amsterdam, and finally served as rabbi of Amersfoort. (Yehoshua Horowitz in EJ) Nice period title page ornamentation.

"Yitshak ben Mosheh Nunes Belmonte ; im hagahot... Ta`am ha-melekh... Barukh ben Yonah le-veit Yetles. " Baruch Jeitteles ben Jonas was "a scholar and Hebrew writer [who] strove for a synthesis of modern and traditional scholarship. In his youth he ran away from home to Berlin, but later returned and was reconciled with his teacher, Ezekiel Landau. He contributed poems to Ha-Me'assef (the journal of the Me'assefim) dealing with the lonely and difficult position of the enlightened intellectual in traditional society. When he eulogized Landau in his Emek ha-Bakha (1793) in a wholly Orthodox and traditional manner, the radical editor of Ha-Me'assef attacked him. A booklet, Sefer ha-Orev, published allegedly in Salonika in 1795 under the pen name Phinehas Hananiah Argosi de Silva, which attacks the disrespectful attitude of the Berlin radicals to rabbinical scholars, is generally considered to be Baruch's refutation of their attacks. So, too, the pamphlet, "A Discussion Between the Years 5560 and 5561" (1800 and 1801) a polemic against the Frankists in Prague, is generally attributed to him. He published four editions of Moses Mendelssohn's commentary on Maimonides' Millot ha-Higgayon, three of them in German translation in Hebrew type, and Ta'am ha-Melekh (1801) , glosses to Isaac Nunez Belmonte's novellae on Maimonides' Sha'ar ha-Melekh. A sermon supporting his father's vaccination campaign was published in 1805. A man of independent means, Baruch founded a yeshivah in his house and encouraged rising Hebrew authors. In 1813 he induced leaders of the Prague community to open a hospital for wounded soldiers "of all nationalities" in the Jewish quarter. He himself died of hospital fever while caring for them" (Henry Wasserman & Meir Lamed in EJ). SUBJECT(S): Maimonides, Moses, 1135-1204. Mishneh Torah.

However, five years later he was induced by opponents of Secession in Frankfort to approve continued membership in congregations which provided for the needs of the Orthodox, thus lending his authority to the establishment of so-called Communal Orthodoxy.

He then followed Schreker to the Berlin Hochschule fuer Musik, where he was a member of a composition class which included Haba and Krenek. He began conducting in 1919 and in 1922 was appointed conductor of the Berlin Schubert Choir, appearing with the Berlin Symphony Orchestra between 1925 and 1928. His first orchestral concert in Vienna included Gustav Mahler's First Symphony. The following year he became Kapellmeister at the Duesseldorf Opera, a post he held until forced by the Nazis to relinquish it in 1933. Over the next few years he conducted in Russia and France, toured Australia and Scandinavia (with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo) , and gave 12 concerts in Erez Israel in 1938. In I94I, he settled in the United States. As an advocate and interpreter of Mahler and Bruckner, Horenstein was almost unrivaled in the strength, integrity, and sincerity of his approach, and his many early recordings of their works were instrumental in bringing about their present-day popularity. He was also a noted exponent of Schoenberg, Berg, Walton, and Janacek. Horenstein conducted little opera after Duesseldorf, although he gave the first French performance of Berg's Wozzeck (Paris, 1950) , and the first American performance of Busoni's Doktor Faust (New York, 1964). At Covent Garden in London, he conducted Fidelio (1961) and later Parsifal (1973) , his last performance of which took place 11 days before he died" (Max Loppert in EJ). Brod was a Czech and Zionist who helped found the National Council of Jews in Czechoslovakia in 1918. He later emigrated to Palestine in 1939, where he continued to write on spiritual and ethical subjects (EJ).

Cloth; 8vo. 60 pages. First edition. In German. Contents: I. Cheker Aboth. --II. Cheker Geburoth. --III. Cheker Keduschoth. "Theologie der Zukunft (1872) is a critical-philosophical tractate on the justification of religious consciousness. Krochmal was a radical and rather unsystematic thinker. Strongly influenced by Spinoza, to whom he devoted his Even ha-Roshah (1871) , by Kant, and, above all by his father, he saw in Judaism an ethico-cultural idea which had undergone a long historical development. The loss of statehood and diasporal existence was an important element in this development; but fundamental ethical and religious principles, such as the belief in one God, the love of one's neighbor, and the self-perfection of man were preserved.

In German. 20 sermons by Adolf Jellinek, "the greatest, most gifted Jewish preacher that modern Judaism has produced. His thorough knowledge of the Midrash, and the startling uses he made of it in his sermons, distinguish him especially from all his contemporaries and predecessors. In his discourses he is the most brilliant apologist of Judaism and the most accomplished and courageous opponent of all its enemies, both within and without the Synagogue. All his addresses are timely answers of Judaism to present-day questions and problems of intellectual and national life, of religion and science. With admirable insight he immediately recognizes in every midrash the whole structure of the original discourse. " (JE) This is Rabbi J.S. Bloch's copy, with his ownership stamp on the title page. Bloch(1850-1923), was a "rabbi, publicist, and politician in Austria. He acquired distinction for his defense of Judaism against the blood libel and was praised by Adolf Jellinek as the "Hercules of the anti-Semitic Augean stables." ….After officiating in provincial communities, he became rabbi of the Vienna suburb of Floridsdorf and a teacher at Jellinek's bet ha-midrash. During the Tisza-EszlFr blood libel trial in 1883, when August Rohling undertook to attest on oath that Jews practiced ritual murder, Bloch attacked him in the press. He challenged Rohling's competence as a scholar, accused him of lying, and offered him 3,000 florins for translating a random page of the Talmud. Rohling was forced to sue Bloch for libel, but after two years' investigations withdrew his action 13 days before the trial was due to open.Bloch was elected in 1884, 1885, and 1891 to the Austrian Parliament from a preponderantly Jewish constituency of Galicia, and was the first parliamentarian to make Jewish affairs his main political concern, regarding himself as an interpreter and defender of Jewish thought to the non-Jewish public. In 1884 he founded a weekly Dr. Blochs Oesterreichische Wochenschrift for combating anti-Semitism, which existed until after World War I, and also established the Oesterreichisch-Israelitische Union (from 1921: Union deutsch-oesterreichischer Juden). He also lectured in social-democratic associations on social conditions in the time of Jesus. Bloch was guided in his political activities by Adolf Fischhof. He developed a previously unknown militancy and Jewish awareness which brought him into conflict with other Jewish leaders in Austria. In Der nationale Zwist und die Juden in Oesterreich (1886) he asked Jews to remain neutral in the struggle of the various nationalities within the Hapsburg Empire and to consider themselves "Austrian Jews" and "Jewish Austrians." He thus supplied the ideology for the Hapsburg patriotism with which the majority of Jews in the realm associated themselves around the beginning of the 20th century. Bloch saw the struggle for Jewish rights as part of the fight for the principle of equality for all nationalities in the empire, which the monarchy would have to recognize in order to exist. He also initiated proceedings against further ritual murder accusations by Franz Deckert and Paulus Meyer and was active during the Hilsner case. (Meir Lamed in the EJ) SUBJECT(S): Jewish sermons.

Xix, 452, 20 pages. First edition. In German. Illustrated with tables, one plate, and two foldout maps. Schwarz was a rabbi and geographer. "He settled in Jerusalem (1833) and lived there until his death, being the first Jew, after Estori ha-Parhi, to devote himself to the study of historical topography of the Land of Israel. Schwarz registered the rising and setting of the sun 4, 000 times and composed a calendar of the length of each day of the year in Jerusalem, which was published in 1860 by his son-in-law R. Azriel Aharon Yaffe. In 1845 he published Tevu'ot ha-Arez ('The Produce of the Land') in Jerusalem. It deals with the borders of Erez Israel, its topography, the division of the country according to the Bible and the rabbinic tradition, the genealogy of the peoples (Gen. 10) , geographical names in the Bible, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It also includes chapters on the flora and fauna, climate, and the earthquakes of the country and a section devoted to the history of Erez Israel from the destruction of the Second Temple. This book was translated into English by Isaac Leeser under the title A Descriptive Geography and Brief Historical Sketch of Palestine and printed together with a map and illustrations in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1850 (reprint 1970) , when Schwarz visited there on behalf of the scholars of Jerusalem. Two years later the book appeared in German, translated by Israel Schwarz, the author's nephew. It is less valuable than contemporary scientific works on the subject (e. G., Edward Robinson's) because Schwarz ignored the achievements of Christian scholars. However, the book contains about a hundred correct identifications of places based on talmudic literature.

Marbled boards. In German. Three volumes (all issued) . Only edition. Monthly review and a platform for Frankel's opinions on Reform. Among other innovations he believed that the messianic belief, which expressed the "pious wish for the independence of the Jewish people" was of importance for the survival and development of Judaism, and that it brought a new spirit and vigor into the life of German Jews, even though "they already had a fatherland which they would not leave. " Dr. Zacharias Frankel (1801-1875) , was born in Prague. After receiving a talmudic education under Bezalel Ronsburg, he studied philosophy, natural sciences, and philology in Budapest (1825-30) . In 1831 the Austrian government appointed him district rabbi (Kreisrabbiner) of Leitmeritz (Litomerice) , and he settled in Teplitz (Teplice) where he was elected local rabbi. He was the first Bohemian rabbi with a secular academic education and one of the first to preach in German. In 1836 he was called by the Saxon government to Dresden to act as chief rabbi. The publication of his study on the Jewish oath (see below) led to its abolition in several German states. He declined a call to Berlin in 1843, mainly because the Prussian government would not meet his stipulations (complete legal recognition of the Jewish faith-until then merely "tolerated; " denial of support to missionary activities among the Jews, etc. ) . In 1854, after having actively advocated its establishment, Frankel became director of the newly founded Juedisch-Theologisches Seminar at Breslau, where he remained until his death.

However, five years later he was induced by opponents of Secession in Frankfort to approve continued membership in congregations which provided for the needs of the Orthodox, thus lending his authority to the establishment of so-called Communal Orthodoxy.

After finishing his earlier education at Erlangen and Bayreuth, he attended (1830) the University of Würzburg. In 1833 he delivered his first sermon in Frankfort, in which he pleaded for the introduction of reforms; two years later he became rabbi of Burg and Altenkunstadt (Franconia); and from 1844 to 1862, when he withdrew from public life, he was rabbi at Frankfort-on-the-Main. He was especially prominent as one of the leaders of the Reform movement.

Breslau: Schlesiche, 1892. 1st edition. Cloth; large 8vo. 60 pages. Title page in Latin; text in Hebrew. Graetz was a German historian and exegete. "Graetz's historical studies, extending back to Biblical times, naturally led him into the field of exegesis...Toward the end of his life he planned an edition of the whole Hebrew Bible with his own textual emendations. A prospectus of this work appeared in 1891. Shortly before the author's death, a part of it, Isaiah and Jeremiah, was issued in the form in which the author had intended to publish it; the rest contained only the textual notes, not the text itself. It was edited, under the title 'Emendationes in Plerosque Sacræ Scripturæ Veteris Testamenti Libros, ' by W. Bacher (Breslau, 1892-94) . The most characteristic features of Graetz's exegesis are his bold textual emendations, which often substitute something entirely arbitrary for the Masoretic text, although he always carefully consulted the ancient versions. He also determined with too much certainty the period of a Biblical book or a certain passage, when at best there could only be a probable hypothesis. Thus his hypothesis of the origin of Ecclesiastes at the time of Herod, while brilliant in its presentation, is hardly tenable. His textual emendations display fine tact, and of late they have become more and more respected and adopted. " (Isidore Singer and Gotthard Deutsch, JE) SUBJECT(S): Bible. O. T.

Pressburg: Israel. Religions-Gemeinde, 1875. Wrappers; 12mo. 14 pages. In German. Only edition. Eulogy in memory of Leopold Loew, Hungarian rabbi and scholar, the first Reform rabbi in Hungary. "From 1850 until his death Loew served as the rabbi of Szeged. Loew was in favor of Reform but insisted that reforms be instituted within the framework of the rabbinic tradition. His viewpoint made it possible for him to participate in the rabbinical conferences in Breslau in 1845 and Leipzig in 1870. He also wrote a biography of Aaron Chorin, who had approached the cause of Reform in the same spirit. Though he did not participate in the Hungarian Jewish congress of 1868, which had been called to draw up the constitution of Hungarian Jewry and at which Hungarian Jewry was divided into two camps-Reform and Orthodox-he expressed his views on the issues in his Die Juedischen Wirren in Ungarn (1868) . The medieval form of the Jewish oath was abolished in Hungary on the basis of a lecture he delivered at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, A zsid\ eske (1868) . He was first to suggest a Hungarian translation of the Bible for Jews, and published the Book of Joel in the translation of I. Bleuer (in Magyar Zsinagoga, 1, 1847) . Loew served as the editor of the periodical Ben-Chananja from 1858 to 1867. He was the first to deal with the history of Hungarian Jewry; among his works are "Schicksale und Bestrebungen der Juden in Ungarn" and "Kalender und Jahrbuch fuer Israeliten" both in Jahrbuch des deutschen Elementes in Ungarn (1846/7) and Zur neueren Geschichte der Juden in Ungarn (1874) . He contributed such pioneering works in the study of Jewish antiquities and folklore as Ha-Mafte'ah (1855) , Beitraege zur juedischen Alterthumskunde, I: Graphische Requisiten und Erzeugnisse bei den Juden (2 vols. , 1870 71) , and Lebensalter in der juedischen Literatur (1875) . His collected writings were edited by his son and successor, Immanuel Loew, under the title Gesammelte Schriften (5 vols. 1889-1900) . " Alexander Scheiber, EJ) Eduard Horn (Ignatz Einhorn) was a Hungarian preacher and political economist. "In April, 1848, he founded at Budapest the weekly "Der Ungarische Israelit, " which gave the first impulse toward the formation of the Reform congregation there. Einhorn became the first preacher of this new congregation...In religion as in politics Einhorn was a decided liberal. He took part in the Hungarian struggle for liberty, first as a revolutionary speaker at Budapest, and then as an army chaplain at Komorn, a position to which he had been appointed by General Klapka.

A lecture by Sigismund Stern (1812-1867) , German teacher and leader of the Berlin Reform movement. After studying philology, 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 Frankfort 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.
