Basel; V. Goldschmidt, 5 [1944]. Original wraps. 8vo. 64 pages. 21 cm. Reprinted in early 1944 for Jewish refugees in Switzerland with some additional notations. In Hebrew and German in parallel columns (with diacritic vowel marks under the Hebrew, and with Yiddish translation between Hebrew). Original 1938 title page, with verso 1944 German title page: “Den jüdischen Flüchtlingen in der Schweiz; Zur Feier des [Pesakh]-Festes im Jahre 5704; überreicht vom Schweizerischen Israelitischen Gemeindebund.” (For the Jewish Refugees in Switzerland; For the celebration of Pesakh in the year 5704; presented by the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities). Copyright by Lehrberger & Co. of Frankfurt. A European-published hagada from the darkest period of the Holocaust, produced specifically for those feeling the inferno. During 1943 and 1944, the extermination camps were working at a furious rate to kill the hundreds of thousands of people shipped to them by rail from almost every country within the German sphere of influence, and by the spring of 1944, up to 8,000 people were being gassed every day at Auschwitz (USHMM, 2012). Passover 1944 began on April 8, the day that the roundups of the Jews of Carpatho-Ruthenia and northern Hungary started. On April 14, the last day of the Holiday, László Endre & László Baky (German-installed heads of the Ministry of the Interior) and Eichmann made the official decision to deport all the Jews of Hungary. With ten illustrations; an early 19th century German Orthodox Haggadah originally compiled by Wolf Heidenheim in 1822. Published for German-Jewish refugees in Switzerland under the auspices of the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities, founded in 1904 to help protect the general interest of Jews in Switzerland; during the second world war, the Federation helped support the refugee community in Switzerland: “Prior to and during the Second World War, Switzerland gave refuge to about 23,000 Jewish refugees although the government decided that Switzerland would serve only as a country of transit. These Jews were protected during the Holocaust due to Swiss neutrality. The Jewish refugees, however, did not receive the financial support from the government that non-Jewish refugees received. Many more Jews were prevented from entering, effectively shutting the border.“ (Jewish Virtual Library; Switzerland). The publishers, Goldschmidt, issued an earlier printing in 1940 (listed in one library on OCLC), no copies of this issue (1944) listed in libraries on oclc. Subjects: Haggada shel Pesah.

  15. [New York, Jewish Theological Seminary]. THE PRATO HAGGADAH. 2006 (ca. 1300). Hardcover, 8vo, Full leather, 14 x 21 cm, 160 pp + commentary. The Prato Haggadah (Spain, ca.1300) is an unfinished illuminated manuscript of 85 leaves, written on fine calf parchment. Folios 1–53 are written in a square Sephardic script and folios 54–68 are written in a square Italo-Ashkenazic script, using a different ink. The illumination of 30 pages is virtually complete. 58 are unfinished, with preparatory drawings and possibly some gesso and color, 50 have text only and the remaining pages are blank. Many of the pages have illuminated initial word panels, comparable to illuminated initials in Christian or secular manuscripts. Throughout, illustrations accompany the text, such as the depiction of the four sons, and illustrations of matza and maror (bitter herbs). Preparatory drawings depicting the story of Noah and the flood appear at the end of the manuscript. Margins are replete with fanciful drawings of hybrid creatures, imaginary birds, drolleries and climbing vines. The codex is especially fascinating because it demonstrates the making of a manuscript in the Middle Ages, enabling us to view its illumination after the text was written: the preparatory drawings, the laying down of gesso in order to cushion the gold leaf, the application of gold and silver leaf, and ultimately the application of pigments. The skill of the artist is of a very high order, both in the preparatory drawings and in the completed pages, whose brilliant colors look as fresh today as when they were applied. Printed and bound as an exact replica of the highest quality of the 13th Century illuminated manuscript in appropriate leather boards and parchment-like leaves. Limited edition of 250 copies. A treasure to behold. (ID #31324) $4700.00.

New York: Library Of The Jewish Theological Seminary; Valencia: In Collaboration With Patrimonio Ediciones, 2007. Hardcover, 107 pages, facsims., color illustrations, 23 cm. Facsimile text in Hebrew and Aramaic; modern texts in English. Contents: The Prato Haggadah: an investigation into the artists’ and scribes’ materials and techniques, and conservation treatment. Nellie Stavisky and Silvia A. Centeno -- The liturgy of the Prato Haggadah. Menahem Schmelzer -- The art of the Prato Haggadah. Evelyn M. Cohen. SUBJECT (S): Jewish illumination of books and manuscripts. Title Subject: Prato Haggadah -- Facsimiles. Haggadah (Ms. Prato Haggadah). Haggadah --Illustrations. Haggadah (Sephardic). This is the companion volume to the facsimile edition of the Prato Hagadah, a Sephardic Haggadah produced in Spain, ca. 1300, with incomplete illuminations. The manuscript lacks a colophon, but contains an Italian censor’s signature dated 1617. This companion volume (107 pages: color illustrations) contains an introduction and essays by David Kraemer... [et al.] and is edited by Naomi M. Steinberger. Includes bibliographical referenes. OCLC lists 4 copies worldwide (JTS, Metropolitan Museum of Art, University of Pennsylvania, British Library). “Nothing at all is known of either the patron or scribe of the Prato Haggadah, and little is known of its whereabouts from the time it was produced in Spain, around 1300, until the time it was acquired by the JTS Library in l964. While the haggadah's text is written in accordance with the Spanish rite, at some point additional text, which included liturgical poems of the Ashkenazic rite, was added, most likely in Italy. A 1617 signature of an Italian church censor, Giovanni Domenico Carretto is proof that the manuscript actually was in Italy at the beginning of the seventeenth century. Nothing further is known of the haggadah's history until 1928, when it was in the possession of Dr. Ludwig Pollak, a native of Prague living in Rome. A distinguished humanist and collector of classical art, literary manuscripts, books and Judaica, Dr. Pollak promised the haggadah to his friend Rabbi David Prato, Chief Rabbi of Rome. After disagreements with the Fascist authorities in the late 1930s, Rabbi Prato moved to Palestine. Dr. Pollak, his wife and son, along with other members of the Jewish community of Rome, were deported to Auschwitz, where they perished. After the war, Rabbi Prato was recalled to his previous position in Rome and served the community until his death in 1951. Shortly after the Rabbi's demise, his only son Jeonathan, an Israeli diplomat en route to his post in Buenos Aires, was visited by the sister-in-law of Dr. Pollak in Rome. Knowing of Dr. Pollak's intention to donate the manuscript to the rabbi, she fulfilled the promise and gave the haggadah to the rabbi's only surviving heir. The Prato Haggadah was purchased by the JTS Library in 1964. The art of the Prato Haggadah is witty and imaginative. The manuscript is replete with decorated initial word panels, foliate ornamentation, and hybrid figures. Several illustrations relate directly to the text... The Prato Haggadah contains motifs common in medieval manuscripts, and many folios reflect the artist's sense of humor... For reasons that remain obscure, the manuscript's illumination was never completed. It is precisely the unfinished nature of the codex that allows the viewer to see the stages of production of an illuminated manuscript: the scribal arrangement of the text; the artist's preparatory drawings; the application of gesso to cushion gold or silver leaf; the addition of the leaf; the painting of a wide variety of pigments; and the outlining of the illuminations with ink. The text of the Prato Haggadah is also distinctive. Although it includes the standard biblical, talmudic, and midrashic texts, as well as the liturgical poetry common to other Spanish Haggadot, the Prato Haggadah lacks all elements associated with the Passover meal. Kiddush, blessings for matzah and maror, instructions for the feast itself, and grace after meals are absent. Scholars have suggested that Haggadot of this kind may have been written to be read publicly in the synagogue, after which people would return to their homes for the meal. This phenomenon is found in other Spanish Haggadot and is explained by medieval sources as satisfying the requirement to recount the story of the Exodus for people unable to lead or attend a seder. Many Sephardic Jews immigrated to Italy following the expulsions from the Iberian Peninsula at the end of the fifteenth century, often taking their manuscripts with them. Though we do not know when the Prato Haggadah left Spain, the manuscript includes an Ashkenazic liturgical section probably added in northern Italy in the sixteenth century and a censor's signature from Italy dated 1617. In addition, the volume contains many textual emendations and corrections inserted over several centuries. Though the Spanish or Ashkenazic sections of the manuscript cannot be definitively dated or localized, scribal practices and liturgical variants provide a general overview of the history of the manuscript and its owners” (JTS 2010).

Illustrates the quilt like nature of the text by color coding Bible, Mishnah, Talmudic passages (etc.) based on when they were added to the Haggadah as we know it today. In his article for volume 77 of the American Jewish Year Book entitled "Jewish Scholarship in the United States: Selections from the Literature, 1973-1975," Menahem Schmelzer highlighted Freedman's Polychrome Haggadah: "Seven colors indicate the seven periods, from biblical to modern, in which the various layers of the Haggadah came into being. Marginal comments on each passage give the source and comprehensive references to scholarly literature. Freedman's new translation and reproductions of many beautiful pages from medieval Haggadah manuscripts make this Haggadah particularly attractive." (1977, pp. 211-212).

With the complete text of the traditional Haggadah, the most ancient Haggadah from the Cairo Genizah and sample pages of manuscript and prnted Haggadot in reproduction. ’ Hebrew essays about the history of the Haggadah by Ernst Daniel Goldschmidt (1895–1972), “librarian and scholar of Jewish liturgy. Goldschmidt was born in Koenigshuette (now Chorzow, Poland), where his father was rabbi. He served from 1926 to 1935 as librarian in the Prussian State Library, Berlin. Immigrating to Palestine in 1936, he joined the staff of the Jewish National and University Library (1936–62). Goldschmidt prepared critical editions of various liturgical texts.

  55. 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.

Printed at renowned press of Rabbi Shlomo ben Yoseph. “In 1695 there appeared in Amsterdam a new edition of the illustrated Haggadah which followed closely, in its general layout as well as in detail, the example of the now accepted Venetian prototype. The illustrations were, however, much improved by being engraved on copper. The artist was Abraham b. Jacob, a former Protestant preacher. He chose many of the same incidental scenes as had appeared in the Venice Haggadot, but he drew them afresh, basing his work on the biblical pictures in the Icones Biblicae by Matthew Merian the Elder; he probably used the second edition of the work which had appeared in Amsterdam in c. 1655–62. Abraham b. Jacob also used miscellaneous scenes taken from other works by Merian. Thus the four sons of the Haggadah text (depicted together for the first time in one illustration) are miscellaneous figures brought together from various publications of Merian, without any attempt at grouping. The 'wise son' and the 'son who could not ask, ' for example, come from an engraving of Hannibal sacrificing before the altar, while the scene of the sages celebrating at Bene-Berak is reproduced – with some alterations – from Merian's picture of the feast given by Joseph to his brethren. The first map of Eretz Israel known in a Jewish publication was added on a folding page at the end of the book. A further edition of the work was produced in Amsterdam in 1712, with minor differences, and the name of the artist was omitted from the title page. ” - 2008 EJ. Subjects: Haggadot - Illustrations.

Typography of this Haggadah, which alternates small and large letters, and contains inverted letters at the end of many lines was a common feature of texts produced by scribes and preserved the look of manuscript Haggadahs. Kohen's Haggadah included sixty woodcut illustrations and played a critical role in establishing the iconographic genres among Haggadahs well into the twentieth century. One example is the four woodcuts on the pages describing the famed "four sons. " Not only are all the sons clothed in Renaissance fashion, but more importantly the "wicked son" is depicted as a traditional soldier of the period. While his uniform would change to fit current fashions, the wicked son appeared for many centuries in the form of a soldier, thus linking wickedness with war for the Jewish people in the early modern and modern periods. In addition, one can see several pages later a pictorial rendition of Pharaoh in a tub, a theme which is present in Haggadahs well into the twentieth century. Drawing on the rabbinic legend that Pharaoh bathed in a tub filled with the blood of Jewish children in order to cure himself of a disease, the Prague Haggadah offers a pictorial tradition which enabled all participants at the seder table to appreciate rabbinic interpretations and tradition. ” (Center for Judaic Studies Penn Libraries Exhibit) Printed in the series “Monumenta Hebraica et Judaica” as book one.

' Not only are all the sons clothed in Renaissance fashion, but more importantly the 'wicked son' is depicted as a traditional soldier of the period. While his uniform would change to fit current fashions, the wicked son appeared for many centuries in the form of a soldier, thus linking wickedness with war for the Jewish people in the early modern and modern periods. In addition, one can see several pages later a pictorial rendition of Pharaoh in a tub, a theme which is present in Haggadahs well into the twentieth century. Drawing on the rabbinic legend that Pharaoh bathed in a tub filled with the blood of Jewish children in order to cure himself of a disease, the Prague Haggadah offers a pictorial tradition which enabled all participants at the seder table to appreciate rabbinic interpretations and tradition. ” - Penn Libraries.

Facsimile edition of MS 422 of the Kaufmann Collection in the Oriental Library of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. [Publications of the Oriental Library of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences] Budapest. “One of the finest examples of an illuminated Haggadah, the Kaufmann Haggadah is composed of 2 parts: 14 full page miniatures, and a decorated text. The episodes depicted in the miniatures recapitulate the Exodus story beginning with the discovery of the infant Moses in the Nile and ending with Miriam's song by the Red Sea. Also included is a miniature of preparations for Passover. The text decorations are elaborate, and in addition to the conventional representations of the rabbis in Bene Brak, the four sons, matzah and bitter herbs, they include biblical episodes already depicted in the full-page miniatures. Three artists may have collaborated on the illustrations. Unfortunately, the miniatures were rearranged at some point in the volume's transmission and are now out of order. ” (Louisiana State University Libraries Special Collections) “Kaufmann Haggadah (MS Kaufmann A 422). It was produced in 14th century Catalonia. The first scholars to study it considered this manuscript to be of Italian origin. Subsequent research, however, traced its origins to Catalonia. It contains the prayers, poems and narrative texts to be recited on the eve of the festival of the Jewish Easter, Pesach, the Feast of the Passover, in which the participants recall the joy of deliverance from servitude in Egypt, thanking God for his miraculous works. In the 11-15th centuries Haggadahs were not infrequently produced for private, family use – the Kaufmann manuscript also bears the marks of almost excessive use. ” (David Kaufmann and his Collection; Kaufmann.

In the weekly series: Our Pulpit: Sunday Lectures; Series 16, No. 26, 1903. A Passover sermon devoted to Moses and Jesus, those who set the groundwork for redemption and the need to eliminate idolatry, which the author especially links to the contemporary idolatry of riches. “Krauskopf entered on his duties in Philadelphia, Oct. 19, 1887. He established a Sunday service in addition to the regular Sabbath service; under his ministration the congregation flourished, and has become one of the largest Jewish congregations in the United States. Seventeen volumes of Krauskopf's lectures, embracing subjects in the fields of religion, ethics, and social science, have been published since 1888. He aided in the organization of the Jewish Publication Society of America, in the spring of 1888.” (EJ 2006) Joseph Krauskopf (1858-1923) was an “American rabbi and author; born in Ostrowo, Prussia, Jan. 21, 1858. He emigrated to America (New York) in July, 1872, and from New York he went to Fall River, Mass., where he found employment as clerk in a tea-store. Through the influence of friends Krauskopf secured admittance into the Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati (Oct., 1875). While studying there and in the University of Cincinnati, Krauskopf acted as a tutor, contributed articles to journals, and published (with H. Berkowitz) "The First Union Hebrew Reader" and ‘Second Union Hebrew Reader’ and ‘Bible Ethics’ (1883). He graduated from the university and from the Hebrew Union College (rabbi) in 1883. In 1885 the faculty of the college conferred upon him the degree of D. D. Krauskopf received and accepted a call from the Bnai Jehudah congregation in Kansas City, Mo. He was appointed by the governor of Missouri as a life-member of the Board of National Charities and Corrections, and in 1885 was elected vice-president of the Pittsburg Conference, of which Dr. I. M. Wise was president. In the same year Krauskopf received a call from the Keneseth Israel congregation (Reform) of Philadelphia. ” (EJ 2006) Subjects: Jewish sermons, American. OCLC lists 17 copies.

Moses, who was born in Zaniemysl, Poznan, had not completed his education before he settled in the United States in the early 1870s. He was appointed to rabbinic positions in Quincy, Illinois, Milwaukee, and Chicago. In 1901 he became rabbi of the Central Synagogue, New York, where he remained until his retirement in 1919. In his early days in the United States, Moses was considered a radical Reformer, but later he took a more moderate position. In 1884 he introduced his own prayer book (Tefillat Yisrael). Moses was a founding member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis and a member of the Reform committee charged with compiling an official prayer book. The appearance of the Union Prayer Book in 1894 has been credited to his personal initiative in preparing and circulating a manuscript when the committee’s work seemed to be leading nowhere. Moses also published a number of sermons and textbooks for children. His Sabbath School Hymnal, first issued in 1894, ran into 14 editions.

For example on the ‘Four Questions’ ‘Why is this night different from all other night, ’ it is asked, ‘Why are these children different from the children in the homeland? ’ The answer: ‘In Europe, children walked in the path of their fathers while in America they travel in foreign paths. ’ On the words, Yochol Marosh Chodesh ‘He could begin from the first of the month’ the Chaim Berlin explanation is: ‘If you have failed to send your donation up to the First Day of Nissan you may do so this very day.

He was active in Va'ad Hazzalah, trying to rescue Jews during the Holocaust, spending two months in London and Paris in 1945 helping refugees. Beginning in 1944 he urged the American Jewish community to forge ties with Jews in the U. S. S. R. In 1964 he and his wife made the first of 22 trips to the Soviet Union. He raised money privately to bring physical and religious necessities to Jews behind the Iron Curtain, including special siddurim that would enable a Jew in Russia to learn to read Hebrew and to observe mitzvot. He obtained permission to bring in tefillin as long as one side would be transparent. He taught Rabbi Eliyahu Essas and worked with him and others to preserve cemeteries and restore the graves of great scholars. He was treasurer of Ezras Torah for over 30 years and co-founder in 1980 of Merkaz Harabbanim, an effort to move young rabbinic couples out of the yeshivah and into the communities that needed them. His son, Rabbi Elazar Mayer Teitz, succeeded him as rabbi of the kehillah in Elizabeth. ” - EJ 2008. Subjects: Haggada shel Pesah. Russian. Elizabeth, N. J. Haggadot - Texts.

  141. Touster, Saul. Yosef Dov Sheinson. A SURVIVORS' HAGGADAH. Philadelphia Jewish Publication Society 2000. 270x210 mm. XXXII+91 pages. Hardcover with dust jacket. This Haggadah is described by the original author as a "musaf" (supplementary material), rather than as a Haggadah. An absolutely wonderful piece of literature. Includes a very informative (30+ page) introduction about the post-Holocaust situation of the surviving Jews. Also full of wonderful poetry and artwork, created by victims both during and after the Holocaust. Can be used for supplementary material; It contains a great amount of new material relevant to the Holocaust that is not present in traditional haggadot. It also contains modified versions of several recognizable parts of the traditional Haggadah text, but the meaning of the modified version is usually quite different from that of the traditional text. For example, the answer offered for why we eat bitter herbs is: "Because we were intoxicated by the incense of Diaspora... Because we did little to help ourselves and reestablish our destroyed homes and country. " The message of this Haggadah's version of the four sons is not the telling of the story of Passover, but the insistence on the right to a homeland. Some blessings that are addressed to God in the traditional Haggadah are addressed to the Allied Forces in the Survivors' Haggadah. "Dayenu" is presented as a list of atrocities that God allowed to be carried out against the Jews, rather than a list of things we thank God for. Very Good Condition in Very Good Jacket.

Written by Morton Wishengrad, “the first scriptwriter for the Jewish Theological Seminary’s ‘Eternal Light’ radio program. […] Wishengrad was raised on New York's Lower East Side and in Brooklyn. Although he was the son of an Orthodox father (his mother died when he was nine) he early lost interest in Judaism. After graduating from Brooklyn College in 1935, Wishengrad became the educational director of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union (ILGWU) where he remained until 1941. In 1942 Wishengrad accepted a wartime position as the AFL director of the joint AFL-CIO Shortwave Bureau, broadcasting to organized labor in Europe. He wrote his first radio script for the Textile Workers Union in 1942, one in an NBC series titled "Labor for Victory, " thus beginning his career as a scriptwriter. His career continued with a stint, 1943-1944, as a writer for the NBC University of the Air. In 1944 Wishengrad began writing scripts for The Jewish Theological Seminary's radio program, "The Eternal Light.

Jerusalem; Lipshitz, [1951]. Original Wraps. 8vo. 31, [1] pages. 22 cm. First edition. Haggadah following the rites of Yemen. With the commentary Etz Hayim. Illustrated wraps. Yudlov 4277, Yaari 2406. Published on the heels of the secret Yemenite Airlift to Israel. “Operation Magic Carpet is a widely known nickname for Operation On Wings of Eagles (Hebrew: Kanfei Nesharim), an operation between June 1949 and September 1950 that brought 49, 000 Yemenite Jews to the new state of Israel. During its course, the overwhelming majority of Yemenite Jews – some 47, 000 Yemeni, 1, 500 Aden as well as 500 Djiboutian and Eritrean Jews – were airlifted to Israel. British and American transport planes made some 380 flights from Aden, in a secret operation that was not made public until several months after it was over” (Wikipedia 2014) Etz Hayim was written by Rabbi Yichya ben Yosef Tzala at the end of the eighthteenth or beginning of the nineteenth century. He was considered one of the greatest Yemenite rabbis of his generation. He passed away on the 28th of Nissan in the year 5565 (1805). This commentary was part of a larger work on the Siddur, which was later published in Jerusalem in 1904. Early in his life, Tzala was a proponent of Sephardic minhag and the laws as reflected in Rabbi Joseph Karo’s Shulchan Aruch. During this period Sephardic minhag, customs, began to make headway in Yemenite synagogues. One of the influential leaders of this period, Rabbi Shalom ben Aharon HaKohen Araki (Rashba), was a proponent of the Sephardic tradition. He was a wealthy contributor and leader of the Jewish community of Zana. Rabbi Araki used his wealth to place Sephardic prayer books in synagogues throughout the area. His efforts were vigorously opposed by Rabbi Yehudah Tza’adi, Rabbi Tzala's teacher. Araki threatened sanctions against Tza’adi, but he refused to back down. Rabbi Tzala was deeply influenced by this debate and because of it renewed to his commitment to the ancient Yemenite minhag. Tzala writes about the debate in the introduction to his commentary. According to the Etz Hayim, the debate went on for two years but, in the end, the two sides resolved their differences and promised to treat each other with respect and honor. Tzala maintained his point of view in favor of Yemenite custom, but he described his opponent, the Rashba, as a “light in Israel” and the Rashba, in turn, continued to honor Rabbi Tza'adi. In his commentary Rabbi Tzala analyzes the roots of the various customs and discusses whether or not they are authentic Yemenite practices. Subjects: Haggada shel Pesah. Etz Hayim.

Schools, children's choir conducted by Albert Bitter, guest artist Isabel Katz, under the supervision of Esther Lazarson, chaired by Morris Nadelman. “The peculiarly American annual communal event known until recently as the 'Third Seder' emerged in the 1920s and 1930s as a secular (sometimes even antireligious) Yiddish cultural and perhaps socialist alternative to the traditional, biblically based home and family ritual that constitutes the core of Pesah observance. The Third Seder was so named to distinguish it from the traditional seders conducted on the first two nights of Pesah in the Diaspora (only on the first night in the Land of Israel). It has been held customarily either preceding Pesah (often on the preceding Sunday) or during the intermediate days of the Festival … the Third Seder relies on a communal experience that transcends individual families or small circles of friends, and—without negating collective participation in certain readings and songs—it requires a performer-audience format for the prepared choral, dance, and dramatic components that are central to the program … The full-scale Third Seders for adults as well as children evolved from earlier model school seders within the educational wings of secular Yiddishist organizations. That origin ensured the maintenance of the educational parameters and the involvement of children from those schools in the later, more elaborate public events” - Milken Archive.

Clothbound. 4to. 64, [6], [36] pages. 32 cm. In Hebrew and English. Decorative brown raised cloth over boards, with gilt title, and copper plate depicting a topographic relief view of Israel. Plates printed on separate paper and mounted on leaves. With decorative endpages and text printed in red and black ink. From the title page: “17 illustrations in colour by A. Allweil, an essay by Max Brod and an accompanying text by I. M. Lask. With a revised English translation and copious explanatory notes by Joseph Loewy and Joseph Guens. ” This deluxe edition of the Haggadah with illustrations by Allweil was printed in limited numbers in five runs throughout the early 1950’s until the early 1970’s, this being one of the earliest editions, though no date is given in the book itself. Galician-born Ariel Allweil immigrated to Palestine in 1920, and became the first leader of the socially radical kibbutz Bitanya. The commune was known for its intensely socialist lifestyle, with all members working together daily and meeting nightly to share their thoughts and struggles regarding the new world they were trying to forge. It was during his time with Bitanya that Allweil fully began to explore his creativity and decided to become an artist. His superb woodcuts celebrate Jewish history and community at a time when the Zionist dream had not yet been fulfilled. He designed two other Haggadahs, one for the Kibbutz he lived on in the 1930’s, and an edition for the Israeli Defence Forces in the early 1950’s. He later taught painting and graphic arts in Israel. This Haggadah is beautifully illustrated with commentaries which immediately situate the importance and practice of Passover during the time of the creation of Israel amidst wars in the late 1940’s, and the illustrations similarly depict both Israeli soldiers and biblical themes.

Leonard Baskin (1922–2000), “U. S. Sculptor, printmaker, watercolorist, and illustrator. Born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, Baskin was the son of a leading Orthodox rabbi. His earliest education was at a yeshivah in Brooklyn, where his family had moved when he was seven. After developing an interest in sculpture at age 14, he would attend day classes at the yeshivah and take evening art classes at the Educational Alliance (1937–39). Baskin also attended New York University (1939–41) and Yale University (1941–43). While at Yale, Baskin discovered William Blake. Impressed by Blake's role as a poet-artist-bookmaker, Baskin founded the Gehenna Press in 1942 and learned printmaking. The Press has published over 100 books, including Homer's Iliad (1962) and Dante's Divine Comedy (1969). … Many of Baskin's drawings and prints concern Jewish subjects. In 1974 he illustrated A Passover Haggadah, for which he provided watercolors, as well as hand lettering of much of the Hebrew text. Baskin received many important commissions, including a bas relief for the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D. C., and a seven-foot-tall bronze figure for a Holocaust Memorial in Ann Arbor, Michigan. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Designed by renowned artist Leonard Baskin, this Passover Haggadah is becoming more scarce in hardcover. It has become a central part of the Passover tradition for many Jewish families. The vibrant paintings, the arrangement of the Seder text for group or responsive readings, the inclusion of the simple musical score for each Passover song, and instructions for special blessings and rituals make this book a perfect introduction to the Passover Seder for children and a family treasure for young and old.

Eisenstein was born in Mezhirech, Poland, and in 1872 immigrated to the United States, where he became a successful coat manufacturer. He was a founder of the first Hebrew society in the United States, Shoharei Sefat Ever (1880), and one of its first Hebrew writers. Although he also undertook translations, e. G., in 1891 publishing the text of the American constitution in Hebrew and Yiddish, his fame rests on his anthologies, for which he earned the epithet ‘master of treasuries’ (as all his anthologies bore the title Otsar, ‘Treasury’). He published a Jewish encyclopedia in ten volumes with the assistance of experts from various countries, Otsar Yisrael (1907–13). His other anthologies include Otsar Midrashim (2 vols, 1915); Otsar Dinim u-Minhagim (1917, ‘Laws and Customs’); Otsar Derushim Nivkharim (1918, ‘Selected Homilies’); Otsar Derashot (1919, ‘Sermons’); Otsar Perushim ve-Iyyurim al Haggadah shel Pessakh (1920), on the Haggadah; Otsar Massa'ot (1926), anthology of Jewish travel literature; Otsar Ma'amrei Tanakh (1925), a biblical concordance; Otsar Ma'amrei Hazal (1922), rabbinic aphorisms; Otsar Vikkukhim (1928), disputations; Otsar Musar u-Middot (1941), on ethics and morals.” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) This edition not listed in Yudlov.

The Herzogs survived the war in hiding and were supported with smuggled profits from the winery. In 1948, after the Communist takeover in Czechoslovakia, Eugene Herzog, the head of the Herzog family, moved the family to the United States. Settling in New York City, Eugene Herzog went to work for Royal Wine Corp. Which was started by the Pluczenik brothers in the 1940s as a winemaker, truck driver and salesman. Part of Eugene’s salary was paid in company shares and by 1958, Eugene was a majority stockholder and purchased the company. Eugene, with his four sons, incorporated the name Kedem, and began a quest to regain the splendor of the Herzog family name. While the company began modestly with one line of traditional wines for sacramental purposes, the Herzogs set their sights on redefining the kosher wine industry and setting progressively higher standards."

Text in Hebrew and English on opposite pages, commentary in English. Haggadah of the roshei yeshivah, adapted by Yaakov Blinder, from the Hebrew by Asher Bergman, in association with Shalom Meir wallach. Description from the publisher: “Their very names inspire awe: Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer of Slutzk and Jerusalem; Rabbi Aharon Kotler of Kletzk and Lakewood; Rabbi Chaim Shmulevitz of Mir and Jerusalem; Rabbi Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky, the Steipler Gaon of Bnai Brak; Rabbi Yaakov Kamenetsky of Torah Vodaath; and Rabbi Moshe Feinstein of Mesivtha Tifereth Jerusalem! Another year, another Haggadah. One often wonders what is left to say -- but no one will ask that question about this monumental anthology. For the first time in English, this volume brings together the ideas and expositions of six of the greatest luminaries of contemporary times, six revered and renowned roshei yeshivah, who, collectively, were the teachers and leaders of tens, even hundreds of thousands of Jews, all over the world. First in ‘Arzei HaLevanon, ’ the Hebrew predecessor of this volume, and now here, their discourses on the Haggadah are collected and set forth with taste and clarity. All of them were Torah geniuses, who saw lessons for today in the miracles of yesterday. To them, the Haggadah and the story of the Exodus were guideposts for life in every era. Their interpretations of the Haggadah are distinguished for depth, incisiveness, pure faith -- and the profound depth that marked their authors as the Torah leaders of three generations. ” With dustjacket.

This Haggadah was often reprinted and exported, though few copies have survived. Printed at the famous press of Solomon Belforte of Leghorn. “Belforte belonged to an Italian Jewish family that settled in Leghorn (Livorno) at the end of the 17th century. He started to edit Hebrew prayer books in 1821 and established his own printing house in 1834. In 1843, the local government authorized the printing of Italian translations of Hebrew liturgical texts. The activity of Salomone Belforte & Co. Was continued by the family – with the forced hiatus of the period of Fascist antisemitic laws and the war – until 1961, when all the equipment of the printing house was sold to an Israeli company. For almost 100 years, Salomone Belforte & Co.

Contains a dozen large plates depicting illustrations from medieval german Haggadahs. Rabbi Marcus Lehmann (Meir; 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 (1860–1938) 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 (translated into English as Tales of Yore, 1947), and short stories were first published in it. His stories were collected in Aus Vergangenheit und Gegenwart (6 vols., 1872–88), and many were translated or adapted into Hebrew, Judeo-Arabic, French, Hungarian, English, and other languages. … Of more scholarly importance, though also primarily intended for popular instruction, are his German edition of the Haggadah (1906, 1914, 1926), anonymously revised and enlarged by H. Ehrmann and translated into English (1969), and his Sabbath lectures on Avot, collected as Die Sprueche der Vaeter (in installments, in: Israelit, 1895–1905; 3 vols., 1921/23) 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 (1874). Lehmann translated the Pentateuch (1873, 19136) in the Bible translation initiated by the Orthodox Bible Institute to counter the translation of Zunz and others. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica).

Rabbi Jacob Joseph School, Yeshiva and Mesifta. הגדת שכטר HAGADAH SHEL PESAH = HAGADAH SERVICE: TRANSLATED IN ENGLISH, WITH AN INTRODUCTION: INCLUDING "LAWS AND CUSTOMS OF PASSOVER AND SEDER PROCEDURE.". New York; Rabbi Jacob Joseph School Yeshiva And Mesifta, [1951]. Original Wraps. 8vo. [10], 63, [10] pages. 21 cm. First edition. In English and Hebrew. Some Yiddish on verso of wraps. Yaari no. 2613. All text internally printed in blue ink, with decorative borders of 'Laws and Customs of Passover Service' printed in red ink. Includes 7 Siegmund Forst illustrations throughout. “Founded in 1900 by Rabbi Samuel I. Andron as the Beth Sefer Tifereth Jerusalem (Glory of Jerusalem School), the Rabbi Jacob Joseph School assumed its name in 1903 in honor of New York's first and only chief rabbi, who arrived in New York in 1888 at the invitation of sixteen Russian Jewish congregations. Unlike the European Yeshiva, which was an academy of higher education, the Rabbi Jacob Joseph School taught Jewish studies and the Talmud to both elementary and secondary grade students. It offered much more religious instruction than was possible in a Talmud Torah and still provided a complete secular education. The Rabbi Jacob Joseph School first occupied a two-story house on Orchard Street on New York's Lower East Side before moving to a larger building in 1907 at 195-197 Henry Street. In 1914 the school moved to still larger accommodations at 163-167 Henry Street where it remained for six decades. In 1938 it added classrooms at 157 Henry Street, the home of the Joseph Golding High School division of the Rabbi Jacob Joseph School. The Rabbi Jacob Joseph School quickly assumed the role as New York's leading Jewish parochial school. By 1918, it taught over 500 boys, and in the next decade had over 1, 000 pupils. Students spent mornings learning the Talmud and afternoons studying secular subjects. It was the first school in the United States to teach using the Ivrith B'ivrith method and the first to establish a Yeshiva kindergarten. Indeed, it served the orthodox Jewish population throughout greater New York, not solely the immediate Lower East Side neighborhood. The school's increased attendance notwithstanding, it suffered from chronic financial problems because students rarely paid full tuition. The Rabbi Jacob Joseph School ultimately left its Lower East Side location in the mid-1970s, as its elementary school relocated to Staten Island, New York and its high school, renamed the Irving M. Bunim High School, moved to Edison, New Jersey. ” - Yeshiva University, Inventory to the Benjamin and Pearl Koenigsberg Papers, 1890-1998. Subjects: Haggadot - Texts. Seder - Liturgy - Texts.

Leipzig; H. Haessel, 1908. Paper wrappers. Folio. XI, 190 pages. 34 cm. Second edition. In German, with Hebrew, Greek, Arabic. Title translates as: “The last Passover meal of Christ and the day of his death, according to the report of the Synoptics put into accordance with the Gospel of John. ” Anastatic reprint of the edition of 1892, with three supplements, containing additions and improvements of the author. D. A. Chwolson (Daniel Avraamovich Khvolson, 1819–1911) was a Russian Orientalist. “Chwolson was born of poor, devout Jewish parents in Vilna. In 1841 he went to Breslau, where Abraham *Geiger befriended him and helped him prepare for matriculation at the university. Later he returned to Russia, settling in St. Petersburg. In 1855 Chwolson became a convert of the Russian Orthodox Church. He was then appointed professor of Hebrew, Syriac, and Chaldaic philology at the University of St. Petersburg, and three years later he was given the corresponding chair at both the Russian Orthodox and Roman Catholic theological academies in the same city. In this triple capacity he taught practically every eminent Semitic scholar in Russia during the second half of the 19th century and after. Among his disciples were the greatest Russian Orientalists. Despite his conversion, Chwolson remained well disposed toward Jews and Judaism and retained his friendship with many eminent Jewish scholars and leaders. He was particularly welcome in Jewish Orthodox circles because of his frequent intervention on their behalf when government officials threatened the yeshivot or the publication of the Talmud. “Das letzte Passahmahl Christi und der Tag seines Todes” (1892), while meant as an answer to antisemitic accusations, is a learned and detailed investigation of the circumstances of Jesus' trial and condemnation. In it Chwolson attempted to prove that Jesus was sentenced to death by the Sadducean high court and that therefore the Pharisees and masses of Jews bear no guilt. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica). “The deep-rooted belief that Jesus was crucified by the Jews being the principal cause of the prejudice against them on the part of the Christians, Chwolson, in a dissertation entitled "Poslyedniyaya Paskhalnaya Vecherya Isusa Christa I Den yevo Smerti, " in "Christianskoe Chtenie, " St. Petersburg, 1875 (German translation, "Das Letzte Passamal Christi, " ib. 1892), shows the groundlessness of this belief. He points out that the proceedings of the trial and condemnation of Jesus, as related in the Gospels, were in violation of the rabbinical laws, and consequently could not have been conducted by a Jewish tribunal. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia).

Short, but detailed philological article and polemic locating the irreconcilable contradiction between the synoptic and non-synoptic gospels, on the subject of Paschal, the date Jesus was arrested, and the name of the festival (of unleavened bread); Zeitlin locates in the Talmud and Josephus where the celebration is renamed festival of the passover. The author, Solomon Zeitlin (1892–1976), “U. S. Scholar of post-biblical literature. … Zeitlin received a Ph. D. At Dropsie College, Philadelphia, in 1917; his dissertation was on Megillat Ta'anit as a Source for Jewish Chronology and History in the Hellenistic and Roman Periods (1922). Zeitlin taught first at Yeshiva College, New York, then became professor of rabbinics at Dropsie College in 1921. As an outstanding authority on the Second Commonwealth period, he wrote over 400 articles and books in the fields of rabbinics, Josephus, the Apocrypha, and Christianity. Zeitlin's assertions that the so-called Christ passage in Josephus was not authentic but only an interpolation by Eusebius, contrary to the opinion of most scholars, gained him early scholarly fame (JQR 18 (1927/28), 231–55). His main concern was the analysis of tannaitic sources and the recognition of a clear distinction in historic eras before and after the Temple destruction; differentiating institutions, laws, and concepts. ” - 2008 EJ.
