Steinschneider (1816-1907), was the "father of modern Jewish bibliography , among the founders of the "Science of
Judaism" (Wissenschaft des Judentums ). Born the son of the Talmud scholar
Jacob Steinschneider and Hani Zadek-Weizenkorn in Prossnitz, Moravia,
Steinschneider received his early education in his native town, where he was
influenced by his uncle Gideon Brecher. He also attended a Christian school and
studied music, an interest he maintained throughout his life. Steinschneider's
literary output was tremendous; his bibliography contains more than 1,400
items. His main lifelong interest was the study of the relationship between
Jewish and general cultures, especially during medieval times. Steinschneider
spent most of his life in the pursuit of his great scholarly projects, but he
also wrote some lighter belletristic and journalistic works. He also commented
- though rarely - on the major contemporary events of his day and for a while
was actively involved in a society founded by his friend Abraham Benisch , the
aim of which was the promotion of Jewish resettlement in Erez Israel. He
withdrew from the group in the early 1840s and later assumed a very negative
attitude toward political Zionism" (Schmelzer in EJ 2007). OCLC lists 26

1906. Hardcover, 8vo, 51 pages. First
edition. Jewish art scholor Joseph Gutmann’s
personal copy. Frontispiece portrait of the artist
Lilien. Includes many plates of Lilien’s
illustrations. Lilien (1874–1925) was an “Austrian
illustrator and printmaker. Lilien was born in Drohobycz, Galicia.
He studied art in Cracow
for a short time, but lack of funds forced him to return home. He eventually
earned enough as a sign painter to go to the Academy
of Fine Arts in Vienna. In 1895 he worked in Munich
as a cartoonist, where he obtained his first commission for the magazine
Jugend; three years later he moved to Berlin,
where he soon became known as a book illustrator. Lilien was the first artist
to become involved in the Zionist movement. He took an active part in three
consecutive Zionist Congresses and was a member of the Democratic Fraction , which stressed the need to foster Jewish
culture…He collaborated closely with Theodor Herzl ; Lilien's photograph
of the Zionist leader on the Rhine bridge, his Herzl portraits, and his
decorations for the Golden Book of the Jewish National Fund became familiar to
Zionists all over the world. In 1905 Lilien, along with Boris Schatz and
others, was a member of the committee formed to establish the Bezalel School of
Art in Jerusalem.
He taught there for some months in the following year and revisited Palestine three times, on
the last occasion as a lieutenant in the Austro-Hungarian army during World War
I. In 1908 Lilien turned from book illustration to etching. Many of his
etchings are views of Austria
and Hungary, while others
record his impressions of Palestine, Damascus, and Beirut.
His drawings, executed mainly in India ink, show a crisp, elegant line and a
strong contrast between black and white areas. Lilien combined biblical and
traditional Jewish themes with the motifs and methods of Art Nouveau. His art
expressed Jewish hopes and desires in the era of Zionism that looked beyond the
exile”. (Werner and Radjai-Ordoubadi, EJ, 2007) SUBJECT(S): Jewish art. Drawing, Austrian -- 20th century. Lilien, Ephraim Mose,

USE OF JEWISH PARENTS AND CHILDREN. PART ONE OF TWO. London, MacMillian, 1907 [1st ed. reprin. Cloth,
8vo, 624 pages. Excerpts from the bible, accompanied
by explanatory commentary. Montefiore (1858–1938) was a
“theologian and leader of Liberal Judaism in England. Montefiore was a
great-nephew of Sir Moses Montefiore and a grandson of Isaac Lyon Goldsmid . He studied at Balliol
College, Oxford, where he came under the influence of
the master of Balliol, Benjamin Jowett, the famous liberal Christian thinker.
Later he studied Judaism at the Hochschule (Lehranstalt) fuer die Wissenschaft
des Judentums in Berlin, and under Solomon Schechter , whom he had taken to England as his private tutor. A man
of means, Montefiore did not serve as a professional scholar or man of religion
but nevertheless frequently preached eloquent sermons. In 1888 he founded the
Jewish Quarterly Review, which he financed and edited, with Israel Abrahams , as coeditor, until 1908. He was the founder in England of a
radical Reform movement (Jewish Religious Union, 1902) ,
which led in 1911 to the establishment of the Liberal Jewish Synagogue; he
served as its president. In 1926 Montefiore was elected president of the World
Union for Progressive Judaism, an office which he held until his death.
Together with the Catholic theologian Baron von Hugel, he founded the London
Society for the Study of Religion, a select group of Jewish and Christian
thinkers which met regularly to read and discuss papers on the philosophy of
religion. A generous philanthropist, he assisted many Jewish and general good
causes. He was a determined opponent of Zionism, and as president of the
Anglo-Jewish Association (1895–1921) tried to prevent the signing of the
Balfour Declaration. He was president of the Jewish Religious Union and of the
Jewish Historical Society of England (1899–1900) .
He also played a major part in the educational life of the Jewish community and
beyond, and University College, Southampton,
presented him with a volume of essays on his 70th birthday (Speculum

HOVOT HA-LEVAVOT. Vien, 1856. ardcover, 8vo,
xxvi, 462 pages. In Hebrew. SUBJECT(S): Jewish ethics
-- Early works to 1800. Lehrbuch der Herzenspflichten; Torat
hovot ha-levavot. Bahya (second half of 11th century)
, was a “moral philosopher. Little is known about the particulars
of Bahya's life beyond the fact that he lived in Muslim Spain, probably at Saragossa. Bahya was also
known as a paytan and some of his piyyutim are metered. Twenty piyyutim, either published or in manuscript, signed with the
name Bahya are assumed to be his. Bahya's major work, Kitab al-Hidaya ila Fara’id al-Qulub, was written around 1080. It was
translated into Hebrew by Judah ibn Tibbon n 1161 under the title hovot
ha-Levavot ("Duties of the Hearts") , and in
this version it became popular and had a profound influence on all subsequent
Jewish pietistic literature. Several abridgments were made of the Hebrew
translation, and the work was translated into Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese,
Italian, and Yiddish. In more recent times it has been translated into English,
German (Choboth ha-L'baboth. Lehrbuch der Herzenspflichten, tr.
By M. Stern, 1856) , and French. In his Hovot
ha-Levavot Bahya drew a great deal upon non-Jewish sources, borrowing from
Muslim mysticism, Arabic Neoplatonism, and perhaps also from the Hermetic
writings. From Muslim authors he borrowed the basic structure of the book as
well as definitions, aphorisms, and examples to illustrate his doctrines.
Despite the fact that Bahya borrowed so liberally from non-Jewish sources,
Hovot ha-Levavot remains an essentially Jewish book” (Vajda in EJ 2007) . OCLC lists 18 copies worldwide. Front and back cover not

Criticism and interpretation. Davidson (1870-1939) was a “scholar of
medieval Hebrew literature. Davidson was born in Yonava,
Lithuania; at a young age he
became an orphan and went to live with his uncle in Grodno, Lithuania.
In 1888, after a few years’ study at Slobodka yeshivah, he immigrated to
the United States.
There he earned a living as a street vendor, then as a shop assistant and
Hebrew teacher; at night he studied English and other subjects to meet
college-entrance requirements. After completing his studies at Columbia University, he was director of the
Hebrew Orphan Asylum and chaplain at the Sing Sing prison. In 1905 he began
teaching Talmud at the Jewish Theological Seminary, New York, and in 1915 was appointed
professor of medieval Hebrew literature. Davidson’s first major scholarly
publication in English was Parody in Jewish Literature. Thereafter, he wrote

in 1891. In America,
he joined the United Hebrew Trades, writing tracts to win the support of Jewish
laborers for socialism and atheism. He also wrote for the Forverts and
Arbeter-Tsaytung, and for the literary monthly Tsukunft, of which he was editor
for a time. He wrote his essays under several pseudonyms including Shabbes,
Shabsovitch, and Sh. Peshes. In 1900 he became general secretary of the newly
formed Arbeter Ring, which he established firmly before resigning in 1903. In
1909 he served as chairman of the mass meeting which sanctioned the general
strike of the waist and dress trade, the so-called "uprising of 20,
000." His publications include Vi Kumt a Yid tsu Sotsyalizmus; Kosher un

that report the sayings and actions of the prophet Mohammed. SUBJECT(S):

WITH. Rescher, Oscar. Sachindex zu Bokhari (Stuttgart,
1923, 52 pages). "Oskar Rescher (Oct. 1, 1883–March 26,
1972), aka Osman Reser, was a prolific German-Turkish scholar in Arabic,
Persian, and Turkish literature who specialized in pre-Islamic Arabic poetry
and Ottoman studies. In 1903 he began to study law in Munich but soon changed to Oriental
languages. After receiving his doctorate at Berlin
in 1909 with a dissertation on the Arab grammarian Ibn Jinni he moved to Istanbul to work in the
libraries there. During World War I he served in the German army as censor for
Arabic prisoner of war correspondence. After the war, he moved to Breslau and
received his Habilitation and venia legendi (the right to hold lectures at a
German university) from the University
of Breslau. In 1925 he
began teaching as professor (without full chair) at Breslau, but in 1928 he
took a long-term leave and returned to Turkey. He left Breslau
'for reasons that can no longer be determined but he evidently did so with
resentment' (Berthold Spuler). Rescher also relinquished his membership in the
Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft (DMG), the society of Oriental
scholars in Germany.
In due course he acculturated to the Turkish locale, changing the spelling of
his name, and converting to Islam. For many years he was a staff member of the
Islamic Institute of the University
of Istanbul. There he
spent the rest of his life, producing numerous scholarly studies and
translating many texts into German. Apart from keeping close contact with his
Turkish colleagues and with Helmut Ritter, who was between 1926 and 1949 a
semi-official representative of the DMG in Istanbul, Rescher lived a solitary
life in his Istanbul house overlooking the Bosphorus.In 1933 the German Nazi
government revoked his venia legendi because of Rescher's Jewish descent and in
1937 he became a Turkish citizen. Most of his work appeared in small editions
but gradually made its way into the mainstream of European oriental
scholarship. He devoted much effort over many years to build up a large
collection of Arabic and Persian manuscripts. These now form the Rescher
Manuscript Collection of the Berlin Staatsbibilothek as well as a collection at
the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University.
His extensive library of printed books in Arabic, Persian, and Turkish, as well
as the secondary literature in European languages has been bought by the Ruhr
Universität in Bochum (Germany) and
forms the nucleus of the library of its Seminar für Orientalistik und
Islamwissenschaften. The grandson of Oskar Rescher's cousin is Nicholas
Rescher, a well known philosopher who is also a scholar of Arabic and has made
important contributions to the study of Arabic logics.Oskar Rescher's
publications include some valuable indices for works of classical Arabic
literature like al-Bukhari's hadith-collection and Yaqut's Mu'jam
al-buldan" (Wikipedia, 2008). Dampstains to cloth and bottom margins;

SUBJECT(S): Jews -- History. Lehmann (1831-1890) was a “German Orthodox
rabbi, scholar, and writer. Lehmann was born in Verden,
Germany, and studied with
Israel Hildesheimer in Halberstadt, with S. L. Rapoport in Prague,
and at Halle.
In Prague he
was friendly with the writer Solomon Kohn, who may have influenced
Lehmann’s future work as a writer. In 1853 an organ was introduced in the
synagogue of Mainz
and in 1854, when the Orthodox members formed a separate congregation, Lehmann
was elected their rabbi and, eventually, one of the leaders and spokesmen of
modern German Orthodoxy. In Mainz
he founded a religious school which from 1859 was an elementary day school for
boys and girls. Lehmann wrote polemically against Reform and founded the weekly
Israelit to counter the influence of Ludwig Philippson’s Reform
periodical, Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums; the Israelit became the principal
voice of German Orthodoxy. Lehmann was the main contributor to the Israelit and
his many historical novels, including Rabbi Joselmann von Rosheim, and short
stories were first published in it. His stories were collected in Aus
Vergangenheit und Gegenwart, and many were translated or adapted into Hebrew,
Judeo-Arabic, French, Hungarian, English, and other languages. Lehmann’s
stories have no great literary merit, but as juvenile literature, they have
religious and educational value. Of more scholarly importance, though also primarily
intended for popular instruction, are his German edition of the Haggadah,
anonymously revised and enlarged by H. Ehrmann and translated into English, and
his Sabbath lectures on Avot, collected as Die Sprueche der Vaeter in which
Lehmann made use of earlier commentators, particularly of Samuel b.
Isaac’s Midrash Shemu’el, and thus made the commentators accessible
to the German reader. Lehmann also published the tractate Berakhot of the
Jerusalem Talmud with the commentary of Solomon Sirillo and his own notes, Meir
Nativ. Lehmann translated the Pentateuch in the Bible translation initiated by
the Orthodox Bible Institute to counter the translation of Zunz and others. As
editor of the Israelit, Lehmann agreed increasingly with S. R. Hirsch’s intransigent
line in Hirsch’s differences with Hildesheimer, Lehmann’s friend
and teacher” (Rothschild in EJ, 2007) . OCLC

in 1883. Berkowitz established in Philadelphia
the Jewish Chautauqua Society in 1893, an educational and interfaith
organization modeled after Methodist teacher training and adult education
programs, and was its chancellor until his death. After 1910 its focus was
changed to educating non-Jewish college students about Judaism. He took an
active part in the establishment of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies in Philadelphia in 1901 and
the Philadelphia Rabbinical Association in the same year. He was a member of
the Mayor's Vice Commission in order to deal with the rise in prostitution
among East European immigrant girls. He helped develop playgrounds throughout
the city. During World War I, he toured army bases and was chaplain to
soldiers. His efforts led to the development of a heart condition and forced
retirement. He was the first secretary of the Central Conference of American
Rabbis. Among his publications are Kiddush or Sabbath Sentiments in the Home
(1898) and Intimate Glimpses of a Rabbi's Career (1921)

when he was 13 to train for the rabbinate. After two years he gave up his
rabbinical studies, graduating from the gymnasium and eventually qualifying as
a teacher. In 1868 he led a small congregation in Westphalia,
but his views proved too liberal. Influenced by Darwinism and Bible criticism,
he adopted a radical and even assimilationist standpoint and was closely
associated with Boston’s advanced thinkers,
particularly Minot J. Savage, a rebel against Christian Orthodoxy who
eventually led the New York
Schindler's theological and political radicalism, and apparently his German
background, proved unpalatable to his congregation, and he retired from the
rabbinate in 1894, becoming superintendent first of the Federation of Jewish
Charities and then of the Leopold Morse Home. Among Schindler’s
publications were Messianic Expectations and Modern Judaism, and Dissolving
Views in the History of Judaism” (Temkin in EJ 2007) .

was a “U. S. Reform rabbi, architect of Reform Judaism in America. Wise
was born in Steingrub, Bohemia,
and studied at yeshivot in Prague and Vienna. In 1843, he
became the rabbinical officiant (Religionsweiser) in Radnitz, Bohemia.
Disillusioned about career prospects for Jews in central Europe, he emigrated to the United States in 1846. He became
rabbi of Congregation Beth El in Albany,
N. Y, introducing reforms such as mixed seating, choral singing, and
confirmation. In 1847, he joined a bet din in New York, presided over by Max Lilienthal , and conceived the idea of its authorizing a
single ritual for the American Jewish community. In 1854, Wise became rabbi of
Congregation B'nai Jeshurun in Cincinnati,
Ohio, where he remained for the
rest of his life. Within a few months of his arrival, he began to publish a
national weekly, The Israelite, later renamed the American Israelite
, and a German supplement Die Deborah. By the end of the year, he had
founded Zion College, which combined Hebrew and
secular studies. Although known more as a leader than a scholar, Wise did write
a number of books: History of the Israelitish Nation (1854) ,
Minhag America (1856) , Minhag America (1866) , The World of My Books (n. D. )
, Selected Writings of Isaac M. Wise, with a Biography (ed. Philipson and

the child of talmud scholar Immanuel Menachem Zunz and
Hendel Behrens, daughter of Dov Beer. Zunz devoted his life to the outline and
development of the Wissenschaft des Judentums. According to the modern
of F. A. Wolf and A.
Boeckh, he intended an exploration of all post-biblical rabbinical or, as he
called it, Jewish literature. But instead of modern classical studies
(Wissenschaft des Altertums) , which treated ancient
cultures as completely past, he pursued a substantial interest in the nature of
Judaism. In addition to parallels to the modern classics, Zunz participated in
the contemporary philosophical discourse about the progress of world history
and mankind – most influentially expressed by Johann Gottfried Herder and
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel . For him, the
historical, cultural and religious achievements of the
“Hebrew/Jewish nation” in the Diaspora was revealed in all
its written sources. In so doing, Zunz denied several basic values of
traditional Judaism, but in their place offered the modern Jew an interest in
history” (Glatzer and Pelger in EJ 2007) . Lightly bumped corners and edges. Light

Asch. Tchernowitz (pseudonym Rav Za'ir; 1871–1949) ,
was a “talmudic scholar and Hebrew author. Tchernowitz, born in Sebesh, Russia,
studied in Lithuania
and obtained semikhah from Isaac Elchanan Spektor of Kovno in 1896. Tchernowitz's
ambition was to combine traditional study with modern research in order to
rejuvenate Jewish learning. His pseudonym Rav ? A'ir
(young rabbi) reflects his aims. Tchernowitz's writings may be classified under
two headings: scholarly and publicistic. Tchernowitz's primary interest was to
produce a full historical account of the development of the halakhah. His
concern was to present the halakhah not in its final crystallization but in its
development beginning in pre-Mosaic times. As a publicist, Tchernowitz showed
deep interest in the Zionist movement and in contemporary Jewish problems. He
published articles and essays, many of them controversial and polemic, in
scores of Hebrew and Yiddish periodicals which appeared later in book form: Be-Sha'arei ? Iyyon. In 1940
Tchernowitz founded the Hebrew monthly Bitzaron in New York, which he edited until his

himself to the study of Judaism, he was appointed professor of theology at the university of his native Leipzig in 1844. Later he taught at Rostock, Erlangen, and
again in Leipzig.
Though Delitzsch was a devoted Christian and the most significant figure of the
Lutheran “Mission to the Jews, ” believing
in the supremacy of the New Testament over the Old, he maintained an
extraordinary understanding of, and affection for, Judaism. Well versed in
Hebrew and in Semitic languages, as well as in the Talmud and in medieval
Jewish literature, Delitzsch was in close touch with the leading Jewish
scholars of his time. As a devout Christian, he proselytized among the Jews,
wrote several pamphlets for that purpose, and made a new translation of the New
Testament into Hebrew (1877, 190112; supposedly with the assistance of A. H.

Bold graphic on cover of a partisan. “On April
19, 1943, a German force, equipped with tanks and artillery, under the command
of Col. Sammern-Frankennegg, penetrated into the ghetto in order to resume the
deportations. The Nazis met with stiff resistance from the Jewish fighters.
Despite overwhelmingly superior forces, the Germans were repulsed from the
ghetto, after suffering heavy losses…Armed resistance lasted until June
1943. With the help of the Polish "People's Guard" some 50 ghetto
fighters escaped from the ghetto and continued to fight the Germans in the
nearby forests as a partisan unit named in memory of Anielewicz. The Warsaw
ghetto uprising had an enormous moral effect upon Jews and non-Jews throughout
the world, especially since it was prepared and carried out under conditions
which practically excluded a priori any attempt at armed resistance. Despite
the vastly unequal forces, the uprising continued for a long time and
constituted the largest battle in occupied Europe before April 1943 (excepting
in Yugoslavia) . This battle also had its impact upon the Polish
population, resulting in the intensification of resistance by the Poles as well
as by Jews throughout the country” (EJ, 2007) .
