2. • Leeser, Isaac. SIDUR SIFTE TSADIKIM [SIFTHEI TZADIKIM]. THE FORM OF PRAYERS ACCORDING TO THE CUSTOM OF THE SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE JEWS [Sephardic Siddur]. Vol 2 [II] NEW YEARS SERVICE, ONLY (of 6). Philadelphia: Haswell, Barrington and Haswell, 1837. 1st edition. Full Leather, Tall 8vo, 121 pages. 23 cm. Hebrew text, parallel English translation. Singerman 0630 (1837-38). Checklist of American Imprints, Nr. 45167.

Sidur Sifte Tsadikim, Leeser's comprehensive Sephardic prayer book, was the first American prayerbook containing the liturgy for the entire year. It contains the original Hebrew text and an English translation.  Leeser marketed his prayer book both to audiences in American and the British colonies in the Caribbean, and he thus included prayers on behalf of a Monarch and a Republican government. Reprinted a number of times throughout the 19th & 20th Centuries, it became the standard prayer book for Sephardic Jews in North America. Leeser founded the first Jewish Publication Society of America and "brought many important works to the attention of the American Jewish community. He published the first Hebrew primer for children (1838) , the first complete English translation of the Sephardi prayer book (1848) [sic 1837-8, presented here], and numerous textbooks for children. He founded the first Hebrew high school (1849) , the first Jewish representative and defense organization in 1859 (the Board of Delegates of American Israelites) , Maimonides College, and the first American Jewish rabbinical school in 1867. His major literary achievement was the first American translation of the Bible,...published in 1845. This became the standard American Jewish translation of the Bible until the new Jewish Publication Society translation of 1917....

Leeser was a traditionalist who did much to stem the tide of Reform. Although he was identified with the Sephardi community his influence affected the entire community and he laid the foundations for many of the key institutions of present-day Jewish life. His contributions to every area of Jewish culture and religion made him a major builder of American Judaism. " (Jack Reimer, EJ) Contents of complete set: v. 1. Daily prayers. --v. 2. New-year service. --v. 3. Day of atonement service . --v. 4. Tabernacle service. --v. 5. Passover and Pentecost service. --v. 6. Fast day service. SUBJECT(S): Judaism -- Liturgy. Prayers. Texts. The 1st edition remains quite rare, with only 10 institutions listed in OCLC with sets. Goldman 36: "This Sephardic prayer book, containing the liturgy for the entire year, was the first comprehensive prayer book published in America....in the introduction, Leeser attempted to demonstrate why his text and translation were superior to the one published by his competitor, David Aaron de Sola, a London hazzan....Leeser ordered new Hebrew types from abroad for this work and had to teach Hebrew to the typesetters, Benjamin George Smith...and Jacob Washington Fletcher....Leeser announced in 1851 that the '500 copies...became gradually exhausted in 14 years...'" indicating a very limited run of the scarce large-size first 2 printings. A Complete LATER 1857 2nd-3rd edition (i. e. mixed) set with a set of Leeser's 5 volume 1845 bible recently sold at auction for over $82, 000.00. We located no other sets of any edition, let alone the scarcer large-size first two printings, having come up for auction in the last decade. 

This copy bears the name of its original owner, Ellen Etting, in gold on the cover, 
with an inscription inside: "Ellen Etting / from her affectionate father / Solomon Etting"


SOLOMON ETTING (1764–1847), was a "businessman, political figure, and Jewish civic rights leader...born in York, Pa., [who] became a shohet at the age of 18, the first American Jew to serve in this capacity. At first a hardware storekeeper, Solomon subsequently became a banker, a shipper, a founder of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and an important businessman. He was prominent in the Baltimore Republican Society, a Jeffersonian political club. He was a leader in the defense of Baltimore against the British in the War of 1812, during which his 18-year-old son Samuel was wounded in the battle at nearby Fort McHenry. Etting was a "manager" of the Maryland State Colonization Society, which sought to promote the resettlement of blacks in Africa. Etting was active in the Baltimore German Society and served as its vice president from 1820 to 1840...[and] he supported the synagogue of his youth, Mikveh Israel, in Philadelphia. In 1801 he purchased land for a Jewish cemetery in Baltimore. He also led in the struggle for Jewish civic rights, opposing the Maryland law requiring of officeholders a Christian oath. As early as 1797 he appealed to the State Legislature on behalf of a "sect of people called Jews, deprived of invaluable rights of citizenship and praying to be placed on the same footing as other good citizens." This petition initiated a three-decade struggle, which ended successfully in 1826. Soon thereafter, Etting served as a Baltimore councilman. Solomon Etting's second wife was the daughter of the prominent leader Barnard Gratz" (EJ, 2007)

BIBLE

70. • Ehrlich, Arnold B. DIE PSALMEN. NEU ÜBERSETZT UND ERKLAERT. Berlin: M. Poppelauer, 1905. Leather; 8vo. Vi, 438 pages. This copy includes request slip from Bible Scholar Prof. Shalom Spiegel laid in. First edition. In German. Index and notes. Ehrlich was a Russian-born Bible critic who emigrated to the United States in 1878. "The publication of his German commentary on the Book of Psalms (1905) , which included a new translation, was a turning point in his life. It served as an introduction to his German commentary on the Bible, which like his Hebrew one consists of notes on the Bible, Randglossen zur hebraeischen Bibel (7 vols, 1908-14). Ehrlich included part of the material from his Hebrew commentary, but in an expanded form, as well as new interpretations arrived at since its publication; many of his earlier opinions are changed here. Only rarely does he comment on aspects dealt with by the "higher criticism. " He concentrates on textual criticism and reconstructions, and his very numerous emendations (especially in his German commentary) are at times conjectural (such as: haplography or dittography, letters having a similar appearance in the ancient or in the square script, the use of abbreviations, glosses, etc. ) , and in most cases are not even based on ancient translations. His comments, which are distinguished by their originality, at times have the quality of homiletics and are derived from Ehrlich's innovating spirit; yet through his sound linguistic instinct and fine linguistic differentiations he succeeded in illuminating and explaining, with great acumen and profundity, many verses and linguistic usages. Ehrlich's exegetical work is an important contribution to modern biblical exegesis. " (Raphael Weiss, EJ) SUBJECT(S): Bible. O. T. Psalms. German. 1905. Bible. O. T. Psalms -- Commentaries.

Alshekh “studied in Salonika under Joseph Taitazak and Joseph Caro, and then emigrated to Erez Israel, settling in Safed, where he gained prominence as an halakhic authority, a teacher in two talmudic academies, and a preacher. 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. In turn, in 1590, Alshekh ordained 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.

Note(s): Includes bibliographical references and index. The first two volumes, part of the unique on-going research project of South African Friends of Beth Hatefutsoth (or the Museum of the Jewish Diaspora), have enjoyed great success among readers, both in South Africa and abroad. Volume One focused on the northern and eastern Transvaal areas (mainly comprising today's Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces). Volume Two focused on the Western Cape. The final instalments will cover the Free State and KwaZulu-Natal, and the southern Gauteng area, including the various towns on the East and West Rand. The third volume of Jewish Life in the South African Country Communities, chronicling the history of the once strong and now largely vanished Jewish presence in the smaller towns and rural districts of South Africa, has now been published. The book starts with the earliest settlement of Jews in South Africa, before and including the 1820 Settlers. The areas covered in the new volume include the Garden Route, Little Karoo, the Cape-Midlands, Overberg and Settler country. The publication is sought after Africana and is of interest to all those, Jews and others, who lived in the country towns and shared their lives, as well as those who holidayed in the area. It will also appeal to historians, genealogists, and librarians. The research covers almost 1500 small towns and villages in South Africa where Jews lived. No village, hamlet or railway siding has been too small; so long as there has been a Jewish presence there, every location has found its way into the record. In addition to recording the story of the various Jewish communities, it also recounts the history of the places in which they lived. The book also includes many colorful anecdotes of life in the country towns and villages, as well as numerous hitherto unpublished photographs. New Condition. Printed on heavy glossy paper.

Kimhi (1160? -1235? ) , also known as Radak, was a rabbi and teacher born into a scholarly family in Narbonne. Et Sofer was written as “a manual for copyists of the Bible, necessitated by widespread ignorance among scribes and the proliferation of biblical manuscript traditions in the 12th century. 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. Especially noteworthy is his theory that the keri and the ketiv developed out of a confusion of readings in the time of the men of the Great Synagogue who, according to him, established the text ("Introduction to Joshua"). His concern for the establishment of the correct text is attested to by his travels in pursuit of old manuscripts. ”(EJ, Talmage) Provence. rebound in modern cloth, some stains to margins, wear to margins of first few leaves as well, good condition.

Spinoza (1632-1677) was a Dutch philosopher. Among the Spanish and Portuguese community that his family was a part of, Spinoza attracted attention for his irreligious and heretical ideas, such as questioning whether Adam was the first man. On July 27, 1656, he was excommunicated. His 1670 Tractatus Theologico-Politicus “caused a sensation, and was banned everywhere, and sold with false title pages. ” Three years later, he was offered the chair of philosophy at Heidelberg, which he declined, avowing a preference for a quiet life. Efforts to have his Ethics published were unfruitful, due to theological impediments. It was later published, after his death, in Opera Posthuma. (Smend, EJ) Water stained, otherwise good condition.

OCLC lists 17 copies worldwide. Pinkser (1821-1891) , born in Odessa, was originally an advocate of Haskalah enlightenment and assimilation for Russian Jews. However, after the pogrom of 1881, he became a Zionist. As such, he led the organization Hibbat Zion, supported emigration to a Jewish homeland, and published his famous book, Auto-emancipation. Originally published anonymously, this work “analyzed the psychological and social roots of antisemitism and called for the establishment of a Jewish national center. ” Though Pinsker did not originally wish to endorse Palestine as the only possibility for the Jewish homeland, towards the end of his life, he was convinced that it was the only workable option.

Kaminka (1866-1950) “who was born in Berdichev, studied at the universities of Berlin and Paris as well as at the orthodox Rabbinerseminar in Berlin and the Lehranstalt fuer die Wissenschaft des Judentums in Berlin. His first appointment was as rabbi at Frankfurt on the Oder, then as preacher at the Reform temple in Prague (1893–97). After serving as chief rabbi of Esseg (Osyek) , Slavonia (1897–1900) , he moved to Vienna where he became secretary of the Israelitische Allianz (whose history he described in Haolam, 35 (1948) , nos. 1–11). In 1903 Kaminka was sent by the Israelitische Allianz to Kishinev to investigate the pogrom that had taken place there that April. He also taught Talmud, philosophy, and history at the bet hamidrash of I. H. Weiss (1901–04) , as well as at the community's religious teachers' training college. In 1924 Kaminka founded Maimonides College (for the spreading of Jewish knowledge among Viennese Jewry) , and from 1926 lectured on Talmud and Jewish philosophy at the University of Vienna. With the annexation of Austria by Hitler in 1938, Kaminka settled in Palestine. As secretary of the Allianz, Kaminka was involved in relief work for the victims of persecution in Romania and Russia to the end of World War I. He had been active from youth in the Hibbat Zion movement and was long associated with Theodor Herzl, who considered Kaminka a suitable intermediary between himself and the Russian Hovevei Zion. Kaminka took part in the first Zionist Congress (1897) , where he gave the official address on Jewish settlement in Palestine. Because of his interest in "practical Zionism, " he eventually fell out with Herzl. ” (Grill in EJ, 2007). Vocalized poems. Other Titles: Zohoraim, hebraiche Gedichte. Wear on cover and binding.
