After several trips to the Soviet Union, he published a number of volumes of variances to the Talmud which previously had not come to light. The author of over 20 books and hundreds of articles, Dr. Katsh's publications ranged in topic from the influence of Judaism on Islam to the influence of the Bible on American democracy.

The Zadokite Fragments, or the Damascus Document, is a “work presenting the views of the sect which is said to have left the land of Judah and emigrated to the land of Damascus. The work first became known through the discovery by Solomon Shechter of two fragmentary manuscripts of it (conventionally called A and B). Schechter dated A in the tenth century C. E. And B in the 11th or 12th. They represent two different recensions of the work, to judge by the relatively small portions which overlap. When the Qumran texts [the Dead Sea Scrolls] were discovered in 1947 and the following years, an affinity between some of them and the Damascus Document was speedily recognized, and it soon became evident that the sect referred to in the Damascus Document must be identified with the Qumran community. This conclusion was confirmed with the discovery of fragments of the Damascus Document in the Qumran caves—fragments of seven manuscripts in Cave 4 and further fragments in Cave 6 (6QD). ”(Schulewitz & Bruce, EJ) Edgeworn, very good condition.

SUBJECT (S): Emden, Jacob, 1697-1776. Emden (1697-1776) was a “rabbi, halakhic authority, kabbalist, and anti-Shabbatean polemicist [and] was regarded as one of the outstanding scholars of his generation. ” “He inherited his father's interest in secular studies, his dissociation from the Ashkenazi method of study (pilpul) and customs, his stormy, independent, and uncompromising character, and his devotion to the campaign against the Shabbateans and their sympathizers. In addition, he possessed a fine literary talent, a critical tendency and a knowledge unusual for his age of general non-halakhic Jewish literature. He was also familiar with sciences and languages (German, Dutch, Latin). Despite his distinguished descent and his remarkable talmudic attainments, Emden occupied no official position, with the exception of a few years as rabbi of Emden (in Germany, 1728–1733). This made it possible for him to be exceptionally critical toward the society and the tradition of his time. He was more on guard about anything that he considered hillul ha-Shem (bringing the name of the Jew into disrepute) than for the good name of the rabbinate and of the community. He made extensive use of the private printing press he founded in Altona to disseminate his views. As a result, because of his views on a number of issues, both personal and communal, he became a figure of contention. ”(Samet, EJ) Ex library, very good condition. (RAB-14-4) (ID #19210) $100.00.

He emigrated to the United States in the following year. In a chance visit to a study group in a synagogue, the destitute scholar so impressed those present with his erudition that they immediately established a fund to aid him in his studies. He graduated from the New York University Law School in 1909. Goldin served successively as principal of the Machzike Talmud Torah, the Hebrew Academy of Boro Park, both in Brooklyn, N. Y., and the Glens Falls Hebrew Academy. Passionately devoted to education, he established summer camps for children and later a camp for adults at Blue Sky. From 1932 to 1947 Goldin served as chaplain of the Great Meadow Prison in Comstock, N. Y, and his experience there served as the basis for his unique volume The Dictionary of American Underworld Lingo. His main literary activity, however, was devoted to spreading Jewish knowledge and combating anti-Semitism. His The Case of the Nazarene Re-Opened (1948) , which he regarded as his magnum opus, was the fruit of research in the New Testament, on which he became an acknowledged expert. Among his other publications were: Universal History of Israel (4 vols., 1935) , Hebrew Criminal Law (1952) , and a translation of Ganzfried's Kizzur Shulhan Arukh. ”(EJ) Ex library, very good condition.

RELIGIONSGESELLSCHAFT, FRANKFURT AM MAIN. Frankfurt am Main: Hermon, 1928. Hardcover. Large 8vo. 175; 60 pages. In German and Hebrew. Includes M. Lange's edition of Meiri's commentary on the tractate Hagigah. Fold-out letter between two sections. "Meiri (1249-1316), a Provencal scholar and commentator of the Talmud, was born in Perpignan where he spent his whole life. His family, regarded as one of the most distinguished in Provence, originated from Carcassonne and Narbonne. Meiri's principal teacher was Reuben b. Hayyim. Among the contemporary scholars with whom he maintained close ties was Solomon b. Abraham Adret; they exchanged many responsa and Adret's teachings assisted him in the writing of his monumental work. Meiri was one of the participants in Adret's polemic against Maimonides which ended in Adret's excommunicating any person who read philosophical works in his youth. In a letter to Abba Mari b. Moses Joseph, who handled the entire affair and collected the relevant correspondence, Meiri disassociated himself from the attitude of Adret and his colleagues, upholding freedom of thought for the scholars of each country, and freedom from intervention by outside scholars. Meiri occupies a central position in the sphere of the talmudic creativity of Provence, not only due to his extraordinary literary fecundity and the comprehensive scope of his works, but also because he summarizes the teachings of his predecessors during the previous three centuries. In effect he puts the seal upon the literary efforts in this area of Jewish culture. His literary activity covered halakhic rulings, talmudic exposition, biblical exegesis, customs, ethics, and philosophy. The vast majority of Meiri's works remained in manuscript until very recently, probably on account of their exceptional length, which made it practically impossible to copy them in full. A small number of his books were published in the second half of the 18th century and the majority of them-from the beginning of the 20th century up to the present day. A great contribution to this project was by A. Sofer (Schreiber). An exception is his commentary to the Book of Proverbs which was first published in Portugal in 1492, and then included in the Kehillot Moshe edition of Mikra'ot Gedolot (Amsterdam, 1724). Meiri's chief work is the gigantic Beit ha-Behirah on the Talmud, in which he was engaged from 1287 to 1300. In it he summarizes the subject matter of the Talmud, giving both the meaning and the halakhah derived from it. It follows the order of the Mishnah. Of particular interest is the introduction to his commentary on Avot, in which he gives the chain of tradition of Torah study from its outset to his own time. Meiri wrote several other important works. His first, written in his youth, was Hibbur ha-Teshuvah devoted entirely to ethics and repentance. It clearly reveals the influence of the Malmad ha-Talmidim of Jacob Anatoli, the first ProvenLal scholar to stimulate interest in the meaning of the precepts as distinct from their observance. It may be assumed that toward the end of his life Meiri revised the work, which in its present form, bears the character of a well constructed sermon book. Extracts from it were published in various places; it was published in its entirety for the first time in 1950.Meiri's commentary to Proverbs, and even more, his commentary to Psalms (1936), reveal all his exegetical and stylistic characteristics as well as his love for explicitness" (Ta-Shma, EJ).

Hirsch (1808-1888) was born in Hamburg, Germany, and while studying for a year in Bonn, befriended Abraham Geiger; the two would later be the leaders of the two contending branches of German Judaism. As a proponent of Orthodox Judaism, “Hirsch...recognized the need for effecting a revision within Judaism of externals, but rejected changes affecting the principles of Jewish faith proposed by the Reform wing, or alterations in the observances of the Law. In Hirsch's opinion the Jews, rather than Judaism, were in need of reform. Jews were in no need of "progress" (the catchword of the reformers) but of "elevation. "” “[H]e defended the Hebrew language as the sole language for prayer and instruction of Jewish subjects. Had our forefathers, he argued, written their prayers in the language of the nations of their environment, they would now be incomprehensible to us; he thus saw the Hebrew language as an important means of communication between Jews in the Diaspora. ”(Katz, EJ) Ex library, small spots of wear at ends of spine, very good condition.
