Mo'ed – commentaries. “[Ben Levi was a 13th century] scholar in Provence. Little is known about his life and personality other than that his principal teacher was Samuel b. Solomon Sekili, also a noted Provençal scholar. His few published responsa show his importance as an authority. His decisions influenced French scholars to alter their verdicts in accordance with his opinions. R. David is known through his Ha-Mikhtam, which exerted a strong influence on the development of subsequent halakhic literature. In his work, a commentary covering many tractates of the Talmud, he bases himself on Alfasi. Many of his decisions which were included in the commentary were later incorporated in the Orhot Hayyim of Aaron b. Jacob ha-Kohen of Lunel, who often quoted David, sometimes anonymously. It was through the Orhot Hayyim and the Kol Bo, which is dependent on it, that David's work became known to Joseph Caro and Moses Isserles, who made considerable use of these two books. The Sefer ha-Mikhtam quotes extensively from scholars of France, Provence, and Spain but relies primarily upon Rashi, Alfasi, Maimonides, Abraham b. David, Zerahiah ha-Levi, and Meshullam b.

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

His Randglossen zur hebraeischen Bibel (7 vols, 1908-14) is a German commentary on the Bible, which like his Hebrew one consists of notes on the Bible. "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) Bookplate, front hinge repaired, good condition. (GER-27-2) (ID #20222) 50.00.

Early in his career Epstein devoted studies to books of the Bible and the Elephantine papyri, but the major portion of his life's work was dedicated to rabbinical literature, particularly to the Mishnah text. In the field of geonic literature, Epstein edited the geonic commentary to the sixth order of the Mishnah , the introduction to which had studies on the she'iltot of R. Aha Gaon. His contribution to the modern study of rabbinical literature was of far-reaching importance. Epstein's essays and reviews appeared in many learned periodicals, and he was cofounder and coeditor of the quarterly Devir, and edited the first 23 volumes of the quarterly Tarbiz. He was an active member of the Vaad ha-Lashon and presided over several of its committees. " (staff, EJ) Ex library. Brown, tears to backstrip, good condition. (RAB-21-26) (ID #20674) 100.00.

When his father, Rabbi Ezriel Epstein, went to the United States to accept a pulpit, he left his son behind to study at the yeshivah in Slobodka. He graduated from Columbia University and was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York in 1913. He served in various congregations in Dallas, Texas, and Toledo, Ohio, before assuming the leadership of Beth Hamedrosh Hagdol in Roxbury, Massachusetts, in 1918 and then becoming rabbi of Kehilath Israel in Brookline, Massachusetts, where he served for the remainder of his career. Epstein was president of the Rabbinical Assembly and chairman of its committee on Jewish Law. He was instrumental in framing various proposals in Jewish law, the best known being a method of solving the agunah problem published in his Li-She'elat ha-Agunah. Under Epstein's proposal, the husband would authorize the wife to act as his agent for the purpose of a get. This innovation was accepted by his colleagues but was abandoned by the Rabbinical Assembly because of the opposition of the Orthodox rabbinate and of some members of the faculty of the Jewish Theological Seminary. ” (EJ, 2007) Wear at spine and corners, good+ condition.

In Hebrew with German title page: “Tachkemoni; Mekamen oder Divan. ” “ki ha-sefer ha-yak' ar halazeh, asher zeh kemo shesh me’ot shanah, ke-k' eren or bahir... Yatsa le-or be-or hah' Ayim, eneno nidpas rak' shelosh pe’amim....me-et Yehudah ben Shelomoh Alharizi.” Al-Harizi, (1165–1225) was a "Hebrew poet and translator. He was born in Spain, very likely in Christian Toledo, a city that at this time preserved Arabic culture and that he describes with particular detail; however, there are no conclusive proofs of it, and other places have also been suggested. His education in this cultural atmosphere made him familiar with Arabic and Hebrew language and literature...Al-Harizi's most important literary translation is his Hebrew rendering of the maqamat of the Arabic poet Al-Hariri (Bosra, d. 1121), which he entitled Mahbarot Iti'el ("Notebooks of Ithiel"), completed before 1218. His translation of the maqama, an Arabic literary form in rhyming prose, attains the quality of an original composition, and imparts a Hebrew flavor to Al-Hariri's typically Arabic art; it reproduces the elusive word play and ornate style of the original....Al-Harizi himself used this form for his major work Sefer Tahkemoni ("The Wise One"?), completed after 1220; he was among the first to use this genre in Hebrew literature. Its 50 maqamat show Al-Hariri's influence, being at the same time his way of showing the possibilities of the Hebrew language and of defending its usage. The language, rhymed prose with some poems intermingled in the text, is taken from the Bible and is often a mosaic of biblical quotations. The different addressees of the work that appear in the manuscripts are not surprisingly Oriental Jews, as Al-Harizi composed this book in his travels through the Orient, from one country to the other, or, as he says, from Egypt to Babylon.The maqamat of the Tahkemoni begin with a narrative frame introduced by the narrator, Heman the Ezrahite, who represents in many cases the opinion of the writer. The main character, Heber the Kenite, resembles the heroes of the Arabic maqama in his nature, a roguish polymath and rhymester. He appears in many different forms and is only recognized at the end of the narratives, after having shown his abilities and wisdom. The book includes love ditties, fables, proverbs, riddles, disputes, and satirical sketches, such as the descriptions of a flea and a defense by a rooster about to be slaughtered.Apart from its literary merit and brilliant, incisive style, the Tahkemoni also throws valuable light on the state of Hebrew culture of the period, and describes the scholars and leaders of the communities visited by the author. Al-Harizi gives vivid descriptions of the worthies of Toledo, the poets of Thebes, a debate between a *Rabbanite and a *Karaite, and conditions in Jerusalem. The Tahkemoni also contains critical evaluations of earlier and contemporary poets, although Al-Harizi's appraisal of his contemporaries is not always reliable and occasionally misses their most essential features" (Aharon Mirsky, Avrum Stroll, &Angel Saenz-Badillos in EJ, 2006).

In the years 1919–38, he lectured in Jewish philosophy and literature at the Jewish Theological Seminary in Breslau, where he reached the rank of professor... In 1939, he settled in Jerusalem, where he continued to pursue his studies of Jewish philosophy. He was awarded the Israel Prize for Jewish studies in 1955. Heinemann's [1876-1957] clear and well-founded investigations were the result of his facing the problems of contemporary Judaism and standing up to the influences of European culture as well as German nationalistic hatred. He expounded his ideas in lectures, in German, as well as in series of essays, in which he discusses topical problems like militarism or pacifism, by analyzing historical attitudes which stem from either Greek or Germanic thought, or from Christianity, and comparing them with the Jewish viewpoint as reflected in Scripture. The Jewish attitude, he concluded, is the correct one, and the Jew should refer back to his own sources and find his place in world culture, not by refuting his faith, but rather by adhering to it. ” (EJ, 2007) Ex library.

OCLC lists 12 copies worldwide. One of the most famous Zionist leader, Herzl was born in Budapest in 1860. While he did study law in Vienna, most of his early intellectual work concentrated on literature and journalism. He was launched into Zionism in 1896, motivated by the Dreyfus case, and fueled by the translation into English of his “Judenstaat. ” The next year he planned the first Zionist Congress, and was elected it's president; at following Congresses, he was continually reelected. Heads of state throughout Europe conferred with Herzl in his position as leader of the Zionists. In particular, he worked with the British government for the establishment of territory for the Jews in the Middle East. He died in 1904. (Singer & Haas, JE) Sokolow (1859-1936) was born and educated in Poland. The command of diverse languages and literary traditions he acquired through both a religious and a secular education served him well in his later life. He began writing for newspapers in the 1870s, particularly about science and current affairs. Though he at first held reservations concerning Zionism, after the First Zionist Congress and meeting Theodore Herzel, Sokolow supported the movement, and was soon the secretary, and then later president, of the World Zionist Organization. After each visit to Palestine, he published his impressions, and along with personal meetings in The U. S, Canada, England and elsewhere, won Zionism many supporters. (Kressel, EJ) Ex library.

His best known polemic article “Li-She'elat Kiyyum ha-Yahadut, ” published in Ha-Shilo'ah in 1903, questioned all Jewish values and all attempts at resolving the problem of Jewish survival, and he became a central figure in the resulting controversy with Ahad Ha-Am's supporters. Hurwitz eventually established his own journal He-Atid to serve as a venue for the clarification of Jewish issues.

In some locations he found cold comfort, such as in Rome: his poem “Nedod Hesir Oni” expresses Rome's unwelcome to his. In others, such as in France, he was welcomed, and his scholarly impact was felt for centuries thereafter. Most of his writing was a direct result of the wandering life; while traveling he wrote poetry, commentaries on the bible, grammars, scientific works, and translations.

Possibly a native of Béziers, Jedaiah is known to have spent time in Perpignan and Montpellier. Little is known of his personal history. He may have been a physician. Jedaiah's intellectual interests were literary and philosophic, although the two spheres were not clearly separated. In his youth, he composed a poetic prayer of 1,000 words titled " Bakkashat ha-Memim," every word of which begins with the letter mem (in Olelot ha-Bohen, 1808). He is also credited with a similar composition, every word of which begins with alef, but many believe that this latter poem was written by Jedaiah's father. In popular style he composed Ohev Nashim ('In Defense of Women,' ed. by A. Neubauer in Jubelschrift… L. Zunz (1884), pt. 1, 138–40; pt. 2, 1–19).

In it he treats in detail such problems as the keri and the ketiv and the accents. His interest in masorah was not limited to this treatise, for numerous observations in this area are recorded in the commentaries.

Levin studied at Berlin University and at the Hochschule fuer die Wissenschaft des Judentums in the same city, joining the Russian-Jewish Scientific Society, which proliferated the idea of Jewish nationalism among Russian-Jewish students in Germany. He served as Kazyonny ravvin in Grodno (1896–97) and Yekatrinoslav (1898–1904) and preached in Vilna (1904–06). Throughout his career he worked toward spreading Zionist ideas both orally and in the Hebrew press (Ha-Shilo'ah, Ha-Zeman, Ha-Zofeh) and the Yiddish press (Der Yud, Der Fraynd) …. He was also among the founders of the League for the Attainment of Equal Rights for the Jewish People in Russia (established in 1905) and a member of its central board. In 1906 Levin was chosen to the first Russian Duma as delegate of the Jewish National List in Vilna (with the support of the Lithuanians).

Ha-Madpisim Menahem Man Ben Barukh [Ve]-Imhah Zimel Ben Menahem Nahum,, 1828. 1st Edition. Quarter Leather, 12mo, xii, 193 pages. 21 cm. 1st edition of Levinsohn's most important work. Levinsohn was one of the founders of the Haskalah in Russia. "He also was known as Ribal (initials of Rabbi Isaac Baer Levinsohn)…From 1820-23 he spread the ideas of the Haskalah as a private tutor in wealthy homes in Berdichev and other towns….Levinsohn's connections with the Russian government gave him authority in Haskalah circles and protected him against the fury of his fanatical opponents. In his memoranda he tried to persuade the Russian authorities to mitigate the persecution of the Jews (his memorandum against the kidnapping of children for military service) and to introduce reforms in the spirit of the Haskalah. He supported a plan for agricultural settlement of Jews, especially those who had lost their livelihood owing to expulsion from the countryside and border areas….Levinsohn's literary work was mainly polemical and propagandistic. It dealt with the social, internal, and external position of the Jews in Eastern Europe. He started his public advocacy of the Haskalah by writing satires, mainly imitations of those by Perl and Erter….In 1823, Levinsohn completed his most influential work Te'udah be-Yisrael ("Testimony in Israel") which, because of Orthodox opposition, did not appear until 1828 (Vilna)….[In it h]e characterized the Hebrew language as "the bond of religion and national survival," uniting all the dispersions of Israel into one people. He severely criticized the traditional Hadarim ("Hebrew schools") which he dubbed "Hadrei mavet" ("rooms of death"). He denounced their talmudic-centered curriculum, their unsystematic method of instruction, and their employment of corporal punishment. He objected to the use of Yiddish and demanded its replacement by "pure" German or Russian. He demonstrated that great Jews of the past knew foreign languages and studied the sciences, and explained the advantages of such studies, both in business and in relations with the authorities. He devoted considerable space to the advocacy of manual labor, especially farming, and criticized Jewish fondness for petty trading. The book had a great impact on Russian Jewish life. Groups formed in many towns which undertook to carry out Levinsohn's proposals. Even a part of Orthodox Jewry received the book sympathetically; only the Hasidim regarded it as a dangerous work. They banned the book and labeled an adherent of the Haskalah with the pejorative epithet te'udke. The Russian government awarded him a prize of 1,000 rubles for Te'udah be-Yisrael.…His contemporaries called him "The Russian Mendelssohn." For the modern reader, only his first book, Te'udah be-Yisrael, is of some historical value. By his personality and literary activity, Levinsohn undoubtedly did much to strengthen the moderate Haskalah. Certain ideas formulated in Te'udah be-Yisrael, such as educational reform and the transition to a life of labor and agriculture, later became a part of the programs of Hibbat Zion, Zionism, and other organizations and movements which preached "the productivization" of the Jewish masses and their adaptation to life in the modern world" (Yehuda Slutsky in EJ, 1972).

He maintained a wide correspondence with other prominent scholars, and several hundred of his letters have been published. A traditionalist, he wrote commentaries on the Pentateuch, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes. He refuted Greek philosophy, its scion Maimonides, modern Kantian philosophy, and Kabbalah's mysticism. Instead, he rests himself in the camp of revelation and the ancient religious laws; a proto-Zion-ist, he devoted much study to the Hebrew language (being a poet himself) and the unity of the Jewish people as a chosen group of humanity.

Heidenheim devoted great care to typographical setup as well as to the restoration of the correct text of the prayers. With this objective, he drew on manuscripts and occasionally on old printed texts. The prominent rabbis of his time approved of Heidenheim's work and also contributed notes and comments to many piyyutim...His other works in the field of liturgy include...the ritual for Passover eve (Roedelheim, 1822-23) " [Sefton D.

Maimon (1875-1962) was a leader of religious Zionism; after years of work in Eastern Europe, he settled in Israel in 1913. In Israel he helped found Mizrachi, the educational organization, and when he was expelled from Israel by the Turks during WWI, he continued to advance Mizrachi's interests in the United States. He was on the first ship – literally – back to Palestine after the war. After the State of Israel was established, Maimon briefly worked in the government; he was elected to the First Knesset. A "prolific" writer, after his retirement from government service, he devoted himself solely to literary pursuits.

His Talmud Yanka'i ("Yankee Talmud", 1907, 1909) poured a stream of ill-humored sarcasm on the peddler, the teacher, the rabbi. The pages of that collection of satires resembled the pages of the Talmud: the text in large letters, wreathed by commentary in Rashi script, is divided into six tractates instead of the talmudic six orders. Rosenzweig also denounced the vulgarisms of the country, the worship of money, the religion of success. ” (EJ, 2007) Fun read, interesting period piece of Jewish Americana. Very good condition.
