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 copies worldwide. Yellowing of pages.

4.            Levussove, M. S. B. 1875. (Moses Samuel) . THE NEW ART OF AN ANCIENT PEOPLE; THE WORK OF EPHRAIM MOSE LILIEN. New York, B. W. Huebsch,, 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”.

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) .

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 attached. Yellowing of pages. Good condition. (Rab-50-6) (ID #25837) 30.00.

He turned to philosophy, studying first at the University of Breslau and then at the University of Berlin. He received his doctorate at the University of Halle in 1865. In 1873 he was invited by F. A. Lange, the well-known author of The History of Materialism, to become a privatdozent (lecturer) in philosophy at the University of Marburg. Appointed full professor after only three years, Cohen taught in Marburg until 1912. He spent the last years of his life in Berlin, where he taught at the Hochschule fuer die Wissenschaft des Judentums” (Bergman and Amir, EJ, 2007) OCLC lists 2 copies worldwide (Daniush Nat.

Leaving home, he proceeded in 1884 to Antwerp, in 1887 to London, where he wrote for Yiddish and Hebrew periodicals and published pamphlets on socialism, reaching the United States 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.

Muhammad ibn Ismail al-Bukhari (810-870) was a Moslem traditionist. He was the compiler of the "Sahih, " one of the six canonical collections of traditions (hadiths) in Sunnite Islam that report the sayings and actions of the prophet Mohammed. SUBJECT(S): al-Bukhari, Muhammad ibn Isma`il, 810-870. Sahih al-Bukhari. OCLC lists 13 copies. BOUND 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 in Turkey 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).

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) .

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.

Schindler, born in Neisser, Silesia, the son of an Orthodox rabbi, was sent to Breslau 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 Community Church. 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) . Lightly bumped corners. Excellent condition.

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.

Born in Detmold, Germany, 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 historical-philological school 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) .

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.

S. ) Un Merkaz Dror In Daytshland, 1947.  Original illustrated paper wrappers, 8vo, 61 pages. In Yiddish. 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) .
