From the Forverts, 1953: “Who would have thought that one of today’s most popular wrestlers was once a yeshiva bokher who studied with such talmudic luminaries as the Hazon Ish Rafael Halperin, the currently undefeated Israeli wrestler, paid a visit to the Forward. In a juicy Yiddish peppered with talmudic anecdotes, the Vienna-born, Bnei Brak-raised Halperin told how his father was a man of principle who believed that one must learn to make a living and not sit around all day in a yeshiva. All of the Halperin brothers became businessmen, and young Rafael became an expert in the diamond business. But one day about six years ago, after seeing a weightlifting magazine, Halperin became interested in physical culture and began to work out. His yeshiva friends made fun of him, but he pressed on. Inclined toward business, Halperin opened a gym in Jerusalem, which eventually grew to a chain of 53 gyms throughout the Jewish state. His bodybuilding paid off; in 1950 he was named 'Mr. Israel. ' An American wrestling promoter who was visiting Israel suggested that Halperin come to the United States and become a wrestler, which he did. Since then, he has become successful, though he won’t wrestle on Friday nights, when most of the matches take place. ” Subjects: Rabbis - Biography. Jewish scholars - Biography. Rabbis - Genealogy.

Inscribed copy of possibly the last publication Zalman Rejzen saw printed in his lifetime; as well as one of the last publications issued by the YIVO in Vilna. Zalman Rejzen (1887–1941), scholar of Yiddish language and literature, editor, journalist, and cultural activist. … Reyzen’s central contribution to Yiddish literary scholarship is his extensive work in creating biographical reference works on Yiddish writers. The first edition of Leksikon fun der yudisher literatur un prese (Biographical Dictionary of Yiddish Literature and Press; 1914) was a groundbreaking endeavor to present and systematize previously uncollected materials on Yiddish writers, and also included a list of Yiddish periodicals. … Zalmen Reyzen was one of the principal figures in YIVO, in the realm of both institutional work and scholarly accomplishments. He was an editor of the journal Yidishe filologye (1924–1926) and of Filologishe shriftn (3 vols; 1926–1929) and was a member of the editorial board (and later, editor) of YIVO-bleter (1931–1939), in which he published research and critical reviews. His travels to the United States in 1930 and to Argentina in 1932 played a significant part in strengthening connections among the various international centers of Yiddish culture and in awakening interest in YIVO’s work. When the Soviets invaded Vilna in September 1939, Reyzen was arrested, despite the fact that the Vilner tog had maintained a radical and pro-Soviet stance. He was shot to death by the Soviets in 1941, at the beginning of the German–Soviet war. ” - Yivo Encylopedia. Subjects: Yiddish literature - Dictionaries. Anonyms and pseudonyms, Yiddish.

"This book is a history, an exceptional history because it tells both of a cemetery and of a living people. It is the chronicle-rich, varied, intense, and warmly personal-of the Spanish and Portuguese Jews who settled in New York City in 1654, and of the Jewish immigrants who came from Central and northern Europe. It describes how they founded and kept flourishing the oldest Jewishcommunity in North America which eventually became the greatest in the world."." This ancient burial ground of Congregation Shearith Israel is known variously as the New Bowery Cemetery, the Oliver Street Cemetery, or the Chatham Square Cemetery-designations which sufficiently indicate its location. Its long and checkered history begins in 1682 when it succeeded the ground reluctantly granted in 1656 to his Jewish citizens b y the irascible governor of New Amsterdam, Peter Stuyvesant.

The editor, Chone Schmeruk (1921–1997), was a “historian of Yiddish literature and Ashkenazic Jewry. Khone Shmeruk was born and raised in Warsaw, where he studied in a modern heder and in the Krinski secondary school before beginning studies at the University of Warsaw and the YIVO Institute. In the latter part of his career, he was instrumental in renewing Jewish studies in Poland. From 1939 to 1946, Shmeruk was a refugee in the USSR. He went from there to a displaced persons camp in Stuttgart, and in 1949 immigrated to Israel. He studied in the Yiddish department at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem under Dov Sadan and in the department of Jewish history with Ben-Zion Dinur, Yitsak Baer, and Israel Halpern, who directed Shmeruk’s dissertation on Jewish settlement in Belorussia from 1918 to 1932, for which he earned a doctorate in 1961. … For many years Shmeruk was head of the Department of Yiddish at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and in that framework he founded a belles lettres series in 1969 (titled Sifrut Yidish [Yiddish Literature]) and a series of monographs in 1986 (Yidish—Mekorot u-me Karim [Yiddish—Texts and Studies]). He laid the foundations for the Yiddish Press catalog (Index of Yiddish Periodicals; IYP), and for other collections and recordings, including a bibliography of Yiddish books printed between 1534 and 1750. He also initiated and established the Center for Research and Documentation of East European Jewry (1956) and the Center for Research on the History and Culture of Polish Jews at the Hebrew University (1983), directing the latter for nine years and forming a model for a similar center, established at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków in 1986. In addition, Shmeruk served as a visiting professor at the University of Warsaw and taught at the University of Lódz. ” (YIVO Encyclopedia) Continued by ‘Russian publications on Jews and Judaism in the Soviet Union, 1917-1967: a bibliography’.

With essays on the writings of Shabbetai Donnolo, Nathan Ben Yehiel, Immanuel of Rome, Elias del Medigo, Azariah de Rossi, David Nieto, Samuel David Luzzatto, Philoxene Luzzatto; biographical sketches of Samuel Alatri, Isaac Artom, Allesandro Malvano, etc. By Sabato Morais; edited by Julius H. Greenstone; with a foreword by Henry S. Morais. Includes "A critical and hermeneutical introduction to the Pentateuch, " by S. D. Luzzatto: p. [93]-152. The author, Sabato Morais was an “American rabbi; born at Leghorn, Italy, April 13, 1823; died at Philadelphia Nov. 11, 1897. The Morais family came originally from Portugal, being probably among the large number of Jews who fled thence from the Inquisition. At the time of Sabato's birth Italy was in the thick of her great struggle for freedom … he formed a close friendship with Joseph Mazzini; and that patriot's struggle for Italian freedom was warmly seconded by Morais. … In 1850, owing to the withdrawal of Isaac Leeser, the pulpit of the Mickve Israel congregation at Philadelphia, Pa, became vacant, and Morais was an applicant for the post. He arrived in Philadelphia on March 17, 1851, and was elected April 13 following, the synagogue services in the interval being conducted by him. … When, in 1867, Maimonides College was established in Philadelphia, Morais was made professor of the Bible and of Biblical literature; and he held the chair during the six years that the college existed. For a number of years thereafter he felt the urgent need of an institution for the training of Jewish ministers on historical and traditional lines; and the declarations of the Pittsburg Conference in 1885 urged him to immediate action. After a considerable agitation of the subject he succeeded, in conjunction with a few others, in establishing (Jan, 1886) the Jewish Theological Seminary at New York. He was at once made president of the faculty and professor of Bible, holding both posts until his death. Unquestionably the establishment of the seminary constitutes Morais' most lasting influence upon Judaism in America. The directors of that body have fittingly recognized his memory by naming the chair of Biblical literature and exegesis ‘the Sabato Morais professorship. ’ In 1887 the University of Pennsylvania conferred upon him the honorary degree of doctor of laws, he being the first Jew so honored by that institution. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) Subjects: Hebrew literature - Italy.

It includes both theoretical discussions of the nature and substance of human rights and practical applications of that theory either by Jews or to Jews. While numerous dissertations and audio-visual materials focus on human rights and Judaism, the bibliography is limited to books and articles. The majority of the works have been written in English or Hebrew, but significant studies in other languages, chiefly French and German, have also been included. The volume contains more than 700 citations, each accompanied by a descriptive annotation. The book begins with an introductory essay that examines the basic concerns of the works that follow. The annotated entries are then presented in five chapters. The first chapter includes anthologies, references, and periodicals. The second chapter includes studies of human rights in the Bible and Talmud. The third chapter includes works on Jewish theories of human rights. The fourth chapter, broken down into smaller sections, includes works on Judaism and particular human rights. The fifth chapter contains entries for works on contemporary Judaism and human rights. The volume concludes with author, title, and subject indexes. ” (Publishers description) Subjects: Human rights - Religious aspects - Judaism. Jewish ethics. Judaism - Doctrines.

Frumkin (1845-1916) "studied rabbinics in his native Kelme, Lithuania, and at the Slobodka Yeshivah. He visited Erez Israel in 1867, and after two years in Odessa, returned to Jerusalem in 1871. There he began research for a history of the rabbis and scholars of Jerusalem, Toledot Hakhmei Yerushalayim. Frumkin's account of his first visit to Jerusalem, Massa Even Shemu'el (1871), gives important source material on conditions in Erez Israel at the time. Returning to Lithuania, Frumkin was ordained a rabbi and took a rabbinical post at Ilukste, Latvia. After the 1881 pogroms, Frumkin participated, representing Hovevei Zion, in the consultations held in Germany to consider the plight of Russian Jewry. There he advocated settlement in Erez Israel as a solution, opposing emigration to the United States. With the financial support of Emil Lachman, a wealthy Berlin Jew, he bought land in Petah Tikvah, built the first house there, and began a heroic ten-year period as a farmer-scholar, braving malaria and other dangers, establishing a talmud torah and a small yeshivah, and persuading more settlers to move there from Yehud.

Born in Stanislav (Austrian Poland), he settled in Palestine in 1921 and was successively inspector of antiquities and librarian and keeper of records for the Department of Antiquities.

  125. Roth, Cecil. JEWISH ART: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY. New York; McGraw-Hill, 1961. Publishers cloth. 4to. 971 pages. 28 cm. First edition. A comprehensive history of Jewish art, from antiquity to the present, a volume still considered definitive. The first edition includes 457 plates, many are in color. Written by Cecil Roth (Bezalel; 1899–1970), Jewish historian; editor in chief of the first edition of the Encyclopaedia Judaica. “Roth's edited volume appeared in Hebrew in 1956/57 (Tel Aviv: Masadah) and in English in 1961 (New York, McGraw-Hill), and was slightly revised by Bezalel Narkiss in 1971 (London: Vallentine, Mitchell)...This impressive collection of twenty essays includes articles by such greats as Roth himself, M. Avi-Yonah, Rachel Wischnitzer, L. A. Mayer, A. M. Haberman, Alfred Werner, and Franz Landsberger. Covering what was known of Jewish artistic creation in the late 1950's, this volume was a landmark, each author setting his or her distinctive specialty and tone to each article. Collectively, this volume was intended to tell the story of the art of a nation, from its Biblical origins through the most contemporary of art by Jews or about Judaism. Even the circular plan of the Galilean village of Nahalal is included in this volume, together with Canaanite goddesses, ancient synagogues, glass from Islamic lands, printed Hebrew books, and the paintings of Raphael and Moses Soyer. Just as Italians, Britons, and Americans have national art forms, so too, argues this volume, do the Jews. This is despite the widely-held notion that Jews don't do art owing to their religion, a conception that this volume comes to set aside. In fact, Roth opens his volume with an apologia: ‘The conception of Jewish Art may appear to some to be a contradiction in terms’ (p.11). The normalization of the Jews, particularly their national normalization, required that they have a national art, like all of the nations. Roth's book is in many ways the Jewish counterpart to the well-known introduction to the history of art (now multi-authored), Gardner's Art Through The Ages. It is the one-volume statement of the Jewish contribution to the world of art. ” (Review by Steven Fine) Subjects: Jewish art - History. Hinges shaken, no dustjacket, otherwise clean and fresh.

In 1940, “the Sendrey family immigrated to New York. Shortly after settling in there, Sendrey was invited by Abraham Binder to teach at the 92nd Street YMCA. While teaching at the YMCA, he worked tirelessly to amass a comprehensive bibliographical resource for Jewish Music. This project was aided by Joseph Yasser, Curt Sachs, Salo W. Baron and Ethel Silverman-Cohen. The manuscript was submitted to Columbia University Press in 1943, but its official publication was delayed until 1951. In the meantime, Sendrey took up residence in Los Angeles, where he joined the faculty of the Westlake College of Music (1945-52). The editing process for the Bibliography of Jewish Music was slow and laborious. Continual attempts to update the manuscript with new publications contributed by Israeli musicians and musicologists, extended the project considerably. ” - Jewish Music Research Centre.

There he was appointed medical officer for the Rothschild settlements in Erez Israel. From 1900, he lived in Jerusalem where he was active in medicine and in various cultural spheres.

Xiii, 130 pages. 24 cm. First edition. With 16 pages of plates. The Library of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America houses the largest and most comprehensive collection of Judaica and Hebraica in the Western Hemisphere; since its establishment one hundred years ago, seekers of knowledge throughout the world have availed themselves of its vast resources. It was not through mere chance, however, that this magnificent collection of manuscripts and rare books came into being. Its existence is owed to the efforts of farsighted Seminary presidents, diligent librarians and supportive members of the community. Leaders such as Solomon Schechter, Cyrus Adler, Louis Finkelstein and Gershon D. Cohen understood that without an adequate library no teaching program of higher Jewish learning could proceed. In turn, they attracted educated librarian-scholars such as Alexander Marx, Nahum Sarna and Menaham Schmelzer, who diligently organized the Library's official treasures, making them available not only to faculty and students, but to the general public as well. Moreover, the tradition of concerned philanthropy established in the past by Jacob Schiff, Louis Marshall, Felix Warburg and Judge Mayer Sulzberger, is now being carried on by generous friends of the Library. As we stand on the threshold of the Library's second century, its objectives are as clear today as they were one hundred years ago; to enable men and women to study, teach and observe the tenets of their Faith.

An orphan asylum, to which a school of handicrafts is attached, was founded at St. Petersburg by Friedland, as well as a home for aged Jews (Moshab Ze'enim) at Jerusalem.

It contains three hundred volumes in manuscript, most of them on parchment, and more than ten thousand printed volumes, representing altogether 14, 000 works, a great many of which are incunabula. The catalogue was compiled by Samuel Wiener; at present (1903) only the first four fascicles (...Nos. 1-3711), printed at the expense of Friedland, and under the title of ‘Kehillat Mosheh, ’ have appeared. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) Subjects: Hebrew language - Bibliography.

In 1898 he began working at the municipal library in Frankfurt, and under his direction the library in Frankfurt assembled one of the richest collections of Judaica and Hebraica in the world. He retired in 1933 when the Nazis came to power and immigrated to the United States in 1938. Between 1939 and 1945 he served as consultant in bibliography to the New York Public Library. … A most useful bibliographical reference tool is his A Gazetteer of Hebrew Printing (1946), in which he listed all the cities where Hebrew books were known to have been printed. For many years Freimann was working on a union catalog of all Hebrew manuscripts, but this work also remained incomplete. Freimann's handwritten cards, representing the material culled from all major and minor collections of Hebrew manuscripts, were photographically reproduced after his death as Union Catalog of Hebrew Manuscripts and Their Location (1964).

Many of these early printers distinguished their work by using special devices or emblems which served as their individual marks. The first Hebrew book with a printer's mark dates from 1487. These trademarks were an adaptation of a practice used by medieval artisans and building owners to identify their handiwork or mark their property.

MIRACLE WITHIN A MIRACLE: JOHANNES REUCHLIN AND THE JEWISH BOOK CONTROVERSY: AN EXHIBITION COMMEMORATING THE 500TH ANNIVERSARY OF REUCHLIN'S DEFENSE OF JEWISH WRITINGS. Urbana, Ill.: Rare Book & Manuscript Library, University Of Illinois At Urbana-Champaign, 2011. ISBN: 9780978813482; 0978813480Original publisher’s wrappers, Large 8vo, 47 pages. Includes 15 color illustrations and describes 25 book titles in detail; 25 cm. “When Johannes Reuchlin published his Augenspiegel (Eye Glasses) in 1511, just in time for the Frankfurt Book Fair, he knew it would cause a tremendous stir. After all, Reuchlin had decided to defend Jewish writings–and Judaism itself–against the combined forces of the emperor and the highest ecclesiastical authorities in Germany. It is remarkable, or, as Josel of Rosheim said, "miraculous, " that the Jews and Reuchlin prevailed and the books were preserved. The dramatic story of this moment in Jewish-Christian relations is retold in this exhibition through the very books that flamed the controversy. The exhibition is an international effort involving two American libraries and three German institutions. Inspired by the 500th anniversary of the appearance of Reuchlin's Eye Glasses, we have undertaken this project on two continents and at four venues. The Rare Book & Manuscript Library of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) in Cincinnati, Ohio, collaborated with the Institut für Stadtgeschichte Frankfurt am Main, the Museum Johannes Reuchlin in Pforzheim, and the Jewish Museum of Frankfurt, the crucial location for the historic events 500 years ago. Rare imprints from the pamphlet wars surrounding the Jewish Book Controversy are on display, as well as important works on both sides of the Renaissance humanist movement to recover ancient sources, including those written in Hebrew. Working together with David Gilner of the HUC-JIR, Fritz Backhaus of the Jewish Museum in Frankfurt, Michael Matthäus of the Institut für Stadtgeschichte Frankfurt am Main, as well as Christoph Timm and Isabel Greschat of the city of Pforzheim, we have produced this exhibition to commemorate Johannes Reuchlin and the Jewish Book Controversy. But we are also celebrating what Reuchlin stands for today, most importantly, religious tolerance, respect for books and people, and the power of knowledge to break down prejudice and build respect and understanding for cultural differences” (U of Illinois, 2012). SUBJECT(S): Judaism -- Relations -- Christianity. Christianity and other religions -- Judaism. Jewish literature -- Censorship -- Germany -- History -- 16th century.

  273. Adler, Elkan Nathan. ABOUT HEBREW MANUSCRIPTS. London; H. Frowde, 1905. Original Cloth. 8vo. 177, [6] pages. 23 cm. First edition. With 6 pages of fascimiles. Collection of bibliographic essays: Some missing chapters of Ben Sira - Karaitica - An ancient bookseller's catalogue - Professor Blau on the Bible as a book - A letter of Menasseh ben Israel - Jewish literature and the diaspora - The humours of Hebrew mss. - The romance of Hebrew printing - Zur jüdisch-persischen litteratur / Prof. Bacher. The author, Elkan Nathan Adler (1861–1946), was an “Anglo-Jewish bibliophile, collector, and author. Adler, the son of Chief Rabbi Nathan Marcus Adler, was a lawyer by profession and had unusual opportunities to travel under favorable conditions and to build up a remarkable library. He was among the first persons to realize the importance of the Cairo Genizah. He visited Egypt in 1888 and 1895–96 and brought back approximately 25, 000 fragments from the Genizah. His library ultimately included about 4, 500 manuscripts of which he published a summary Catalogue of Hebrew Manuscripts in the Collection of E. N. Adler (1921). He also had a collection of some 30, 000 printed books in Judaica and in general fields. In order to make good the embezzlements of a business associate he sold his library in 1923 to the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York and the duplicates of the printed books (including many incunabula) to the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, thus helping to raise both of these libraries to positions of significance. By an agreement made at that time, the manuscripts that he subsequently collected passed after his death to the Jewish Theological Seminary. Adler's published writings were mainly based on his travels and on materials in his own collection. Among them are About Hebrew Manuscripts (1905), a collection of bibliographical essays; A Gazetteer of Hebrew Printing (1917); Jews in Many Lands (1905); Auto de Fé and Jew (1908); History of the Jews of London (1930); Jewish Travellers (1930, repr. 1966); and articles on the Samaritans and on the Egyptian and Persian Jews. Adler played an active role in English-Jewish communal affairs, especially as regards educational and overseas matters, and was an early member of the Hovevei Zion in England. His personal archives are at the library of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. ” - EJ 2008. Subjects: Manuscripts, Hebrew - Bibliography. Hebrew literature - Bibliography. Hebrew literature.

  277. Imamovic, Enver. ON THE SARAJEVO HAGGADAH. Sarajevo; Art 7, 2009. Original Hardback. 8vo. 144 pages. 25 cm. First edition. Illustrated in color throughout. A history of Sarajevo Haggadah, written by an renowned Bosnian archaelogist and historian, who was instrumental in saving the Sarajevo Haggadah during the shelling of the National Museum in Sarajevo during his time as Director. Imamovic's work extensively details the archival and historical turns of preserving the Sarajevo Haggadah during the twentieth century (including its being hidden from the Nazis), with reproduction of source documents at every major juncture. The “Sarajevo Haggadah (Sarajevo National Museum) is a 14th-century Spanish illuminated manuscript composed of the traditional three parts: 34 full-page miniatures (fols. 1v–34); illuminated Haggadah text (fols. 1*–50*); and piyyutim and Torah readings for Passover week (fols. 53*–131*). It is by far the best-known Hebrew illuminated manuscript, and has been reproduced in part twice during the last 70 years with scholarly introductions by H. Mueller and J. Von Schlosser, and by C. Roth. The full-page miniatures in the Sarajevo Haggadah display the widest range of subjects even among the rich Spanish Haggadot, from the Creation of the World to Moses blessing the Israelites and Joshua before his death, followed by illustrations of the Temple, preparations for Passover, and the interior of a Spanish synagogue. There are few full-page miniatures; most are divided horizontally into two framed sections, with some in four sections. Although the greater part of the iconography of the miniatures is derived from Latin Bible illumination of the Franco-Spanish school, some Jewish elements can be detected, as in the abstention from representation of God or any heavenly beings. Other Jewish aspects can be found in the text illustrations of the Haggadah, such as a miniature of Rabban Gamaliel and his students, and the matzah and maror. Stylistically, the illuminations are related to the Italian-gothic school prevailing in Catalonia in the 14th century. That the Sarajevo Haggadah originates from the Kingdom of Aragon can be inferred from three coats of arms displayed in the manuscript. The Haggadah reached the Sarajevo Museum when in 1894 a child of the city's Sephardi Jewish community brought it to school to be sold, after his father had died leaving the family destitute. ” - EJ 2008.

Albright], 1919. Original folded letter. [2] pages. 14 x 22 cm. A letter from the personal correspondence of William F. Albright, addressed to Kraeling (possibly Carl H. Kraeling), dated Sept. 8, 1919. “Today I leave – definitely it seems … We had a most delightful visit Thursday evening. … I also spoke of you to Mr. A. S. Freidus, chief of the Jewish division … he is anxious to make your acquaintance … he is very much interested in Hebrew studies, and with his encyclopedic knowledge of Hebrew literature and bibliography may be able to render you useful service in your work. Very cordially yours, W. F. Albright. ” “William Foxwell Albright (1891-1971) was an evangelical American Methodist archaeologist, biblical scholar, linguist, and expert on ceramics. He was born in Coquimbo, Chile to Protestant missionaries Wilbur Finley and Zephine Viola Foxwell Albright. He married Dr. Ruth Norton in 1921 in Jerusalem, and they had four sons. Albright pursued his undergraduate studies at Upper Iowa University and received his Ph. D. In 1913 from the Oriental Seminary at Johns Hopkins University, where he later taught from 1929 to 1959. He was also the director of the American School of Oriental Research at Johns Hopkins. One of his major achievements was confirming the authenticity of the Dead Sea Scrolls following their discovery. Also, in 1923 he made the first significant excavation of a tumulus near Jerusalem-possibly the site where an ancient king of Judah was memorialized. He edited the Anchor Bible volumes on Jeremiah, Matthew, and Revelation and his publications include Yahweh and the Gods of Canaan, The Archaeology of Palestine, From the Stone Age to Christianity, and The Biblical Period from Abraham to Ezra. ” - Harvard, Albright, William Foxwell.

Among the entries are thirty-three American imprints. Deinard bemoaned the fact that Jews cared little for their own literary heritage; rather than establish Jewish libraries, they sold all their books and manuscripts to gentile institutions. He felt that conditions in America were auspicious for the establishment of Jewish libraries, but with the exception of a handful of individuals, among them Sulzberger, wealthy Jews were not interested (pp. 5-6). Sulzberger lated donated his own private library, amassed by Deinard, to JTSA and it provided the foundation of what would become the most important Judaica library in the western hemisphere. It was ‘Deinard’s first major breakthrough in setting up a Hebrew Judaica collection’ (Wilk, 122). ” (Goldman, Hebrew Printing in America, entry # 255). Singerman 5095.

First edition. In Hebrew; with English title: Anshe sefer we-anshe maaseh; reflections on writers, scholars, bibliographers, printers and book-dealers. By Abraham Meir Habermann (1901–1980), a “bibliographer and scholar of medieval Hebrew literature. Born at Zurawno (Galicia), Habermann from 1928 was librarian at the Schocken Library in Berlin. He immigrated to Palestine in 1934 and served as director of the Schocken Library in Jerusalem until 1967. From 1957 he taught medieval literature at Tel Aviv University (professor, 1969) and taught at the Graduate Library School of the Hebrew University. He was editor of the department of bibliography (Jewish printers) for the Encyclopaedia Hebraica and the department of medieval Hebrew poetry for the first edition of the Encyclopaedia Judaica. Habermann began his study of medieval literature in 1925, specializing in the Ashkenazi piyyut from the time of R. Ephraim ben Jacob of Bonn. A prolific writer, his books include Ha-Madpisim Benei Soncino (1933): Gevilim; Me'ah Sippurei Aggadah (1942); Ha-Genizah (1944); Toledot ha-Sefer ha-Ivri (1945); Ha-Piyyut (1946); Ateret Renanim, piyyutim and songs for Sabbath and festivals (1967); Ha-Sefer ha-Ivri be-Hitpattechuto (1968); Sha'arei Sefarim Ivriyyim (1969); and Toledot ha-Piyyut ve-ha-Shirah (1970), which is the first attempt at a survey of the history of Hebrew piyyut and poetry and its development in various cultural centers from post-biblical times to the Haskalah period. Habermann edited and compiled such diverse medieval works as: Piyyutei Rashi (1941); Selichot u-Fizmonim of R. Gershom Me'or ha-Golah (1944; new printing, 2004); Gezerot Ashkenaz ve-'Arefat (1946); Nitso'ot Ge'ullah, an anthology of redemption and messianism (1949); Machberot Immanu'el ha-Romi (1950); Even Bohan of Kalonymus ben Kalonymus (1956); Studies of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Edah ve-Edut (1952), and Megillot Midbar Yehudah (1959).

He studied Talmudics and received also private instruction in all the branches of a regular school education. He was a born bibliophile, and began to collect valuable works when still a boy of twelve. With his progress in Hebrew literature his love for books increased also, the result of which was his magnificent library of 860 manuscripts and 5, 471 printed works, covering all branches of Hebrew literature. There were few books in his collection which he had not read; and he undertook the preparation of a full catalogue of it. As far as he accomplished this task, it was the foundation of the 'Ozerot Hayyim, Katalog der Michael'schen Bibliothek, ' Hamburg, 1848.” - 1906 JE.

First edition. Edited by Joel Shatzky and Michael Taub; with a foreword by Daniel Walden; Emmanuel S. Nelson, advisory editor. “This reference book includes alphabetically arranged entries for more than 75 Jewish-American novelists whose major works were largely written after World War II. Included are entries for both well-known and relatively obscure novelists, many of whom are just becoming established as significant literary figures. While the volume profiles major canonical figures such as Saul Bellow, Norman Mailer, and Bernard Malamud, it also aims to be more inclusive than other works on contemporary Jewish-American writers. Thus there are entries for gay and lesbian novelists such as Lev Raphael and Judith Katz, whose works challenge the more orthodox definitions of Jewish religious and cultural traditions; Art Speigelman, whose controversial ‘Maus’ established a new genre by combining elements of the comic book and the conventional novel; and newcomers such as Steve Stern and Max Apple, who have become more prominent within the last decade. Each entry includes a brief biography, a discussion of major works and themes, an overview of the novelist's critical reception, and a bibliography of primary and secondary sources. A thoughtful introduction summarizes Jewish-American fiction after World War II, and a selected, general bibliography lists additional sources for information. ” (Publishers description) Subjects: American fiction - Jewish authors - Bio-bibliography - Dictionaries.

Two volumes only; Kerekh 2, Pars Prima (alef-chet), Pars Secunda (tet-mem). Kerekh 2 consists of a total of four volumes; with Kerekh 1, a total of five volumes were issued (1926-1933). A philosophical dictionary, Ozar ha-munnahim ha-Pilosofiyyim (4 vols, 1928–33), which contains the terminology of medieval religious philosophers. Compiled by Jacob Klatzkin (1882–1948), “author, philosopher, and Zionist. ” - EJ 2008. “Jacob Klatzkin's Otzar ha-munahim ha-filosofiyyim. Thesaurus philosophicus linguae hebraicae (Berlin, 1928-1933) remains unsurpassed to this day. Its stated objective was to enlarge modern Hebrew vocabulary in the field of speculation and reflection by restoring to use the many terms and expressions coined by medieval Hebrew translators. The Thesaurus includes 3042 entries, some 1200 pages in four volumes, plus one volume of texts. Klatzkin read through a very large number of philosophical works in Hebrew, mainly in print but also in manuscript, and collected the philosophical terms occurring in them. His philosophical lexicon is conceived as a Thesaurus in the strict sense of the word. A typical entry for a term is constructed as follows: (i) the term (vocalized); (ii) a very brief definition (in Hebrew); (iii) equivalent terms in other languages (especially German, occasionally also English, French, Latin, or Greek); and, most importantly, (iv) significant text extracts, in which the term occurs; (v) eventually, a list of related terms to be looked up elsewhere in the Thesaurus. Where a given term has more than one meaning, its different meanings are carefully distinguished. The very judiciously and cleverly chosen text extracts make Klatzkin's Thesaurus into an exceptionally valuable research tool. For over 80 years Klatzkin's work has been the indispensable companion of any student of Jewish intellectual life. ”- Philosophic and Scientific Hebrew Terminology – PESHAT.

  407. Lampronti, Isaac Hezekiah Ben Samuel, 1679-1756. PAHAD YITSHAK: VE-HU ALFA BETA RABTA [VOLUMES THREE AND FOUR BOUND TOGETHER]. Venice; Yitshak Foa U-Shelomoh Ashkenazi Nella Stamperia Ventur / Reggio; Hananiah Elhanan Hay Kohen, Tipografia Della Societa, 5573, 1798-1813. Later Boards. Folio. [190; 273] pages. 40 cm. First edition. In Hebrew. Volume three (Het-Tet) and four (Yod-Lamed) of Lampronti’s Pahad Yitzhak ("The Fear of Yitzhak"), a Talmudic encyclopedia. Volume three contains old facsimile title page consisting of a tracing of the original title page in blue ink; volume three also contains large fold out map, detailing the planned contents of the assorted volumes of the Pahad Yitzhak. Isaac B. Samuel Lampronti was an “Italian rabbi and physician; born Feb. 3, 1679, at Ferrara; died Nov. 16, 1756. …Lampronti's life-work was his famous rabbinical encyclopedia ‘Pahad Yitshak' (name derived from Gen. Xxxi. 42), the material for which he had begun to collect as early as his student days at Mantua, and on which he worked during his whole life. When he decided, in his old age, to publish this great work, he traveled together with his pupil Jacob Saraval, as the latter says in the preface of the correctors (Saraval and Simhah Callinari), through the Italian cities in order to secure the approbations (‘haskamot’) of the rabbinical authorities of Italy for the work. The collection of these approbations, which were given in 1749 and 1750, is a curious monument of the Jewish scholars of northern Italy in the eighteenth century; it includes sonnets and poems in other forms in honor of Lampronti. The following cities are represented by their yeshibahs or rabbis: Venice, Leghorn, Reggio, Verona, Ancona, Padua, Mantua, Casale Monferrato, Modena, Turin, Florence, Alessandria della Paglia, Pesaro, Finale, Lugo, Rovigo. In the second volume are added the approbations of R. Malachi b. Jacob Kohn of Leghorn, author of the ‘Yad Mal'aki, ’ and of three Palestinian scholars stopping at Ferrara. The work was planned to fill six volumes, as recorded in the printing permit of the Jewish communal directorate of Venice. But only the first volume and the first half of the second volume appeared during the author's lifetime. … Vol. Iii. Appeared in the same year; it contains: het, end (fol. 1-61), tet (fol. 63-93). These volumes were printed at the press of Isaac Foa (formerly Bragadini) at Venice. Two other volumes appeared in 1813 (vol. Iv, Reggio) and 1840 (vol. V, Leghorn); vol. Iv. Contains the letters yod (fol. 1-41a.), kaf (fol. 41a-108); lamed (specially paged, 1-26); … In 1845 the autograph manuscript of the entire work was acquired by the Bibliothèque Nationale of Paris, in 120 volumes, 68 of which corresponded with the parts that had so far appeared. The Paris manuscript also contains the author's Italian correspondence, which was not included in the edition (see Cat. Hebr. MSS. Bibliothèque Nationale. P. 61. Nos. 458-577). The society Mekize Nirdamim, on its foundation, took as one of its first tasks the publication of those portions of Lampronti's work which had not yet been printed. … the publication of the work was completed 127 years after the appearance of the first volume. Lampronti's work is an alphabetically arranged encyclopedia to the Talmud and Talmudic literature. In the censor's permit, dated June, 1749, prefixed to the first volume, it is designated as "Dizionario Rituale in Lingua Ebraica, " a designation which probably originated with the author. As a matter of fact Lampronti's encyclopedia deals chiefly with the Halakah, the material for the articles being taken from the entire halakic literature down to the latest responsa, which he had, in part, in manuscript. He devotes much space to discussing questions of ritual law, as found in the responsa of contemporary Italian rabbis. On some questions he gives the entire correspondence, as on fols. 9d-13a, 31d-37d, 46d-50a, 74b-76a, 79c-80b, 102b-107a, in the first volume. The arrangement is a characteristic feature of the work. Single words are used occasionally as headings for his articles, but more frequently he uses entire sentences, either as he found them in the sources, or as propositions derived from the sources. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia).

Under his guidance, many of his students devoted themselves to the study of the Genizah, especially the early history of piyyut. Many of his students, including M. Zulay, settled in Israel and became prominent in Jewish scholarship. In 1924 Kahle wrote an opinion defending the Talmud against the libels of the notorious antisemite, T. Fritsch. Because of his and his wife's pro-Jewish activities following Kristallnacht, the family had to seek refuge in England (Oxford) in 1938. Kahle continued his work at Oxford University. ” - EJ 2008.

"This scholarly publication accompanies the exhibition Scripture for the Eyes, focusing attention on the extraordinarily rich array of biblical prints produced in the Low Countries (comprising today's Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg) during the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, a time of dynamic and sometimes violent religious and political change. In particular, the book studies the crucial role played by scriptural prints in the complex processes of religious self-formation that dominated early modern European culture. Following early modern usage, the prints - woodcuts, engravings, and etchings by such artists as Lucas van Leyden, Jan Swart van Groningen, Maarten van Heemskerck, Philips Galle, Hendrick Goltzius, and Hieronymus Wierix, among others - are classed into five functional groups: Sacred History and Geography, Exegesis, Worship, Morality, and Politics and Polemics. In addition to a preface by James Clifton and the main interpretative essay by Walter Mellon, the volume also contains an extensive bibliography. ” (Publishers Description).

A treatise on Jewish numismatics, with 35 pages of plates, depicting weights and seals, and 213 coins, from early Greek and Macedonian to late roman times; the greater part of the text concerns a full description of the coins represented, with translations of the characters, and a table of the various alphabets found represented. Published by the controversial and eccentric Ephriam Deinard. “Samuel Raffaeli (Raffalovich): As a moneychanger working within Jerusalem's Jaffa Gate, Samuel Raffalovich (1867-1923) was periodically exposed to ancient coins, shown to him by beduoins and local peasants. However, it was not until Eliezer Ben-Yehuda identified the ancient Hebrew letters on a coin in his possession that Raffaelovich's passion for ancient coins was kindled. Eventually, Ben-Yehuda taught Raffaelovich to read not only ancient Hebrew script but also Greek and Latin writing. Refusing to receive payment for his this service, Ben- Yehuda only asked that Raffaelovich change his name to the more Hebrew-sounding Raffaeli. In subsequent years, Raffaeli established an antiquities shop specializing in the sale of antiquities to foreign collectors and museums. Later, he spent some time in England, where he opened the first travel agency in London to organize trips to Palestine. In 1913, he published the first Hebrew book on ancient Jewish coins, and in 1920 he was appointed Keeper of the Coin Collection of the Palestine Archaeological Museum, a post he held until his death in 1923. His private collection, which he sold to the Palestine Archaeological Museum (now the Rockefeller Museum) remains part of the museum's holdings until this day. ” (Israel Museum, Jerusalem; ‘More Than Money; Modern Studies’).

The 500-page supplement contains information on over 2, 000 bibliographies published between 1965 and 1975. In his introduction Shunami notes that this number compares with that for the first hundred years of the Wissenchaft des Judentums. He comments on the rapid growth of bibliographies relating to the Holocaust and to the State of Israel. On the other hand, the small number of entries related to Hebrew printing is a reflection of the decline of study of this subject with little extra interest having been aroused by the 500th anniversary of Hebrew printing. There is also a decrease in entries relating to private collections, reflecting a decline in major Jewish book collectors. Shunami also decries the shortage of Jewish bibliographers. “ (EJ 2008; Bibliography). Subjects: Bibliography - Bibliography - Jewish literature. Bibliography - Bibliography - Jews.
