      Important Zionist Novel Pre-Dating Altneuland by 10 years


    9. Lewinsky, Elhanan Leib. מסע לארץ ישראל בשנת ת "תMASA LE-ERETS YISRAEL BI-SHENAT T'' T. Odessa: Bi-Defus Dukhna, 1892. First edition. Period boards. 8vo. 66 pages. 19cm. In Hebrew. Title translates to "Journey to The Land of Israel in the Year 2040 (800)." Between 1880 and 1920, around 10 novels were published describing versions of an imagined Jewish state reestablished in the land of Israel. The most famous is obviously Herzl's Altneuland; however, Lewinsky's far more pessimistic novel was written 10 years prior and has eerily stood the test of time. Lewinsky wrote the short story after returning from Palestine to Russia an enthusiastic Zionist. He published the story in Odessa's Ha-Pardes and it immediately stirred one of the great debates of early Zionism, namely whether the priority of a Jewish state should be cultural or political. The controversy began with Ahad Haam's critique of Herzl's novel, where he upholds Lewinsky's cultural vision as more desirable. As usual, Max Nordau came out in the defense of Herzl, and the debate remains open until this day. In 1892, Lewinsky predicted how Israel will blossom in the year 2040. The wonder is that many of his predictions have already come to fruition. A rare copy of this monumental work. SUBJECTS: Zionism - Fiction - Palestine - Middle East. OCLC lists 6 copies worldwide.

Title translates into English as, “Biology of Ethics. ” This copy is inscribed by Nordau to Israel Zangwill in August 1922 on the first page, “to my (dear) friend Israel Zangwill, (fondly) yours, M. Nordau. Paris August 19th 1922.” Zangill, Nordau, and Herzl were chums; a recent article on Zangwill in the Times of Israel noted that “Zangwill made the jump into journalism and at the same time began his involvement with Jewish emancipation. He met and became fast friends with his fellow writers, Theodor Herzl and Max Nordau, even hosting Herzl in London at the turn of the century” (August 28, 2015). Max Nordau (1849-1923) was a co-founder of the World Zionist Organization. He was a political Zionist, not a cultural or religious Zionist, having ceased being an observant Jew at eighteen, instead becoming a "militant naturalist and evolutionist, " and making his fame with Die Conventionellen Luegen der Kulturmenschheit, first published in 1883. Also at eighteen, he started his career in journalism, on the staff of the Pester Lloyd. While condemning modern culture and politics, the situation of the Jewish people was never far from Nordau's mind. He met Theodor Herzl in 1982, and soon after began discussing the possibility of a Jewish state with him. He was vice president of the First through Sixth Zionist Congresses, and president of the Seventh through Tenth. (EJ, 2007) “Zangwill was a British author at the forefront of cultural Zionism during the 19th century, he was a close associate of Theodor Herzl. He later rejected the search for a Jewish homeland and became the prime thinker behind the territorial movement. ” (Wikipeida, 2016) SUBJECTS: Ethics. Evolutionary. Some browning.

      First Mass Call to Establish an American Jewish Congress

       

    37. Strauss, Nathan; Executive Committee of theAmerican Jewish Congress. THE CALL FOR THE AMERICAN JEWISH CONGRESS. New York, 1917. 1st Edition. 4to. 2 pages; 28 cm. The original call for the election of delegates for the 1st American Jewish Congress. Almost certainly the first ever outwardly facing publication to discuss the AJC. The letter reads, “By virtue of the authority vested in us, as the Executive Committee for an American Jewish Congress, the Jews of America are earnestly requested to select representatives to an American Jewish Congress which shall meet on September 2, 1917, at Washington DC, exclusively for the purpose of defining methods whereby, in co-operation with the Jews of the world, full rights may be secured for the Jews of all lands and all laws discriminating against them may be abrogated…” About 300, 000 ballots were cast to determine the delegates for the Conference, which was ultimately held in Philadelphia’s Independence Hall on December 15th, 1918. “The American Jewish Congress was founded in 1918, and represented a "populist counterbalance to the American Jewish Committee, which was dominated by the wealthy and conservative German-Jewish establishment. "Leaders within the American Jewish community, consisting of Jewish, Zionist, and immigrant community organizations, convened the first American Jewish Congress (AJCongress) in Philadelphia's historic Independence Hall. Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Felix Frankfurter, U. S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, and others joined to lay the groundwork for a national democratic organization of Jewish leaders from all over the country, to rally for equal rights for all Americans regardless of race, religion or national ancestry. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) This copy of the original Call for the congress outlines the process by which the delegates will be elected, and lays out the overall purpose of the Congress. It includes the names of members of the Executive Committee, which was chaired by Macy’s founder Nathan Straus. The widely-read public intellectual Isaac Hourwich served as Vice-Chair. Also includes the names of many notable Rabbis, as well as successful Jews of the time, who served on the Executive Committee, including: Henry Morgenthau Sr. Stephen Samuel Wise, Julian Mack, Jacob Furth, Samuel Shulman, Mayer London, Henry M.

With an introduction from Jacob De Haas, the secretary of the First Zionist Congress. In his testimony Herzl says, “The fact that there is now for the first time since Cromwell a perceptible number of our people in England is the true cause of this Commission being called together. Those who deny this are, I feel quite certain, perfectly sincere. When they cry out about Alien Immigration, they are quite unconscious of the true cause of their complaint. They feel the pain and they point to the place which hurts… But I think it right to say that the mere establishment of this Commission has created a difficulty… (The) Commission must either recommend restrictive legislation or not…. To keep out the poor oppressed Jews cannot, I believe, be successful. But if restrictive legislation is not recommended, there mere fact of this Commission having sat will give an impetus to immigration to England; it will have formed an additional notification of the desirability of England as a place for emigration.” OCLC lists 12 copies worldwide.

From “The Young Jew Series; ” Number Two. Includes two essays: “Theodor Herzl and History” by Buber, and “Theodor Herzl and We, ” by Welsch. “Approaching Zionism from his own personal viewpoint, Buber disagreed with Theodor Herzl about the political and cultural direction of Zionism. Herzl envisioned the goal of Zionism in a nation-state, but did not consider Jewish culture or religion necessary. In contrast, Buber believed the potential of Zionism was for social and spiritual enrichment. For example, Buber argued that following the formation of the Israeli state, there would need to be reforms to Judaism: "We need someone who would do for Judaism what Pope John XXIII has done for the Catholic Church." Herzl and Buber would continue, in mutual respect and disagreement, to work towards their respective goals for the rest of their lives. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) In this essay, Herzl writes, “But beyond all definite judgment there rises before us, in the light of history, the personality of Theodor Herzl… He was the hero of a period of transition. He was the master of a sick people. His greatest deed is one which he did not achieve of his own will. He gave an image to this people. Not the image of a real living person, but an ideal image, a model comforting and inspiring. It is thus that the poets in their works may cast into human shape their ideal of themselves… (Herzl was) a statue beyond fault or blame, bearing the pure features of genius, the countenance lit with the splendor of the messiah.

All 6 of these Zionist Congresses were held at Basel with the exception of the 4th which was held in London. A few days after his speech at the first congress, Herzl wrote in his diary: “Were I to sum up the Basel Congress in a word - which I shall guard against pronouncing publicly - it would be this: At Basel I founded the Jewish State. If I said this out loud today l would be greeted by universal laughter. In five years perhaps, and certainly in fifty years, everyone will perceive it. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) Includes a few postcards with writing from a previous owner in the late 1940s.

He speaks about the dire need to fulfill the goal of Zionism, a Jewish state in Palestine, after the end of the war, both to provide a home for the huge population of Jewish refugees from Europe and to prevent the possibility of the destruction of the Jewish people as a whole. “But we must beware of the dangerous illusion that the destruction of Hitlerism alone will free the world from all ills and the Jewish people from its misery. There is something fundamentally wrong in present human society if a Hitler can bring the whole of humanity to such a pass, and there is something fundamentally wrong in the Jewish set-up, if whenever there is any trouble, Jews are singled out as its first and most tragic victims. And a victory over Hitler will not be an end, but a beginning of a new set-up for the world and for ourselves. ”. Part of the Palestine and Near East Series. SUBJECT (S): Zionism, Jews, WWII.

His tireless pursuit of a cooperative relationship between Jews and Arabs was a manifestation of his philosophy of life; his effort on behalf of the binational plan stands as one in a series of efforts by him to change Jewish public life in both American and Mandatory Palestine" (Kotzin, 2010). In this pamphlet, Magnes includes his essay with the pamphlet's title, as well as his recent New York Times article and Philby's plan. He also republishes his 1921 letter to the editor of the London Jewish Chronicle in which he claims that redemption would come to the Jews only if they stop infringing on Arab national aspirations in Palestine. He placed this article in the pamphlet, he says, "to show that my present attitude is not new, and that it is the result of a view of life and a conception of the ethical function of Judaism and does not just spring from tactical or strategic motives."

    137. Deinard, Ephraim. HAVU TAMIM: KOL MI-TSIYON EL TSIRE HA-KONGRESS HA-TSIYONI BE-VI`EN. Jerusalem: [Publisher Not Identified], 1913. First edition. Original paper wrappers. 8vo. 40 pages. 20 cm. In Hebrew. Title translates to: Be Innocent: A Voice from Zion - To the Delegates of the Zionist Congress in Vienna. ” This pamphlet reflects Deinard’s idiosyncratic views on Zionist related matters, whilst also promoting contemporary settlement opportunities in Palestine. Havu Tamim was written to coincide with the 11th Zionist Congress and contains three pages of glowing eulogy to Theodore Herzl. This was not coincidental, as the Zionist movement had shortly before deliberately abandoned Herzl’s Zionism, a fact that had led one of the founders of the Zionist movement, Max Nordau, to absent himself from the Congress in protest. Ephraim Deinard (1846–1930), was a bibliographer and Hebrew author. Born in Sasmakken, Latvia, Deinard wandered in his youth, collecting ancient manuscripts and books in many countries, and then established a bookshop in Odessa. In 1897 he tried unsuccessfully to found an agricultural settlement in Nevada (U. S.). An active Zionist, he settled in Palestine in 1913 where he investigated the possibilities of Jewish settlement. After being expelled by the Turks in 1916 he returned to the United States and continued his bibliographical work. His two most noteworthy bibliographical works are Or Mayer: Catalogue of the Old Hebrew Manuscripts and Printed Books of the Library of the Hon. Mayer Sulzberger of Philadelphia (1896) and Koheleth America (1926), a listing of Hebrew books published in America from 1735 to 1926. The first part of the latter work contains essays on the state of Hebrew literature in America, which are written in his unadorned, but typically acerbic, style. He laid the foundations of the Hebrew book and manuscript collections of the Library of Congress with the financial aid of Jacob Schiff. A violent polemicist on many controversial subjects, he attacked Reform Judaism, Hasidism, Christianity, and Karaism. Deinard was a prolific Hebrew writer, producing more than 50 books and pamphlets often signed with his pseudonym, Adir. These included Toledot Even Reshef (1879; a biography of Abraham Firkovich, whom he knew in the Crimea); Sefer Massa Krim (1878; on travels in Crimea); Massa le-Erez Kedem (1883; travels in Palestine and Egypt); Sefer Miflagot be-Yisrael (1899; on the Subbotniki and Hasidim); Zikhronot Bat Ammi (1920; a history of Russian Jewry over the previous 70 years). He also published several short-lived Hebrew and Yiddish journals, among them Ha-Leumi, one of the earliest Hebrew periodicals in America. (Virtual Judaica) SUBJECTS: Zionism.

He served as a mohel (ritual circumciser) in New York and as a rabbi and mohel in New Rochelle. Kadushin attempted to professionalize the practice of milah (circumcision). He complained that 'every individual and sluggard who comes to this land and does not desire to carry on his back the heavy load of the peddler titles himself a mohel.'

Date based on Day/date confluence; it is possibly 1929, though 1918 seems far more likely. Cincinnati is one of the oldest and largest Jewish communities outside the East Coast. The Ohavei Zion Society, dating at least as far back as 1899 (American Jewish Yearbook, vol 1), provided an outlet for Jewish national sentiment and was clearly a community attraction. This flyer requests that community members “come in droves” to the local Talmud Torah to discuss the happenings in Jewish national life. Speakers include Abraham Simon, who was “in the vanguard of Jewish education, and placed emphasis not only on the admission of girls to Day Schools, but also upon professionalizing the field of Jewish teaching. ” (American Jewish Archives, 2008). The Ohavei Zion Society was almost certainly part of the larger, international Lovers of Zion movement (Hibat Zion). Very rare. Paper is browned. Good+ condition. (ZION-10-12) (ID #37017) $225.00.

Also argues that Jews have no claim to Palestine because the Arab population is much larger and has been there longer. “A careful study of the Scriptures reveals the fact that the Jew will never be permitted to peacefully occupy Palestine until he repents ‘nationally’ and accepts the land from his coming Messiah and King, the Lord Jesus Christ. ” “Since both the Jews and the Arabs are Semitic, the bugaboo of anti-Semitism need not enter here. ” Dr. W.

A succinct rebuttal against Rabbi Mattuck’s anti-Zionist sermon published in November, 1916 in which Mattuck claims that the principles of Liberal Judaism and Zionism are at odds with one another and that Zionism poses a threat to the continuation of the Jewish religion. Goodman points out the faults of this conflation. “In Zionism there is the Jewish patriotic passion, the appeal for sustained enthusiasm and faith, the incentive for endeavour and achievement in the regeneration of a historic people and the redemption of its sacred soil; but, without the desire to press the point unduly, adherents of Liberal Judaism may well be asked: What, from the Jewish point of view, is there in their creed for which men would live and struggle and die, suffer and endure? ” SUBJECT (S): Zionism, Reform Judaism, Liberal Judaism.

Dr. Carl Hermann Voss, a pro-Zionist Chrstian minister, succinctly answers 29 questions related to the topic of Palestine. Questions range from “Isn’t Palestine an Arab Country?” to “Aren’t Jews a Religion, Not a Nationality?” to “Why Don’t They Stay in Europe?” to “How Can Peace Be Brought to Palestine?” Written with a Zionist bent for a Christian audience, Voss answers most questions in favor of Jewish nationalism. “For the Arabs to permit a Jewish State in Palestine involves no sacrifice to the Arabs; on the contrary, it provides them with a progressive and democratic neighbor eager to create a joint future in which the hopes of both peoples may be realized.” Includes a Statement of Principles of the American Christian Palestine Committee in which the committee declares that their support for the Jewish People is rooted in Christian values of social justice. “During World War II, Dr. Voss founded and led the American Christian Palestine Committee. The group called for a Jewish national state to give refuge to survivors of the Nazi Holocaust. To that end, he became a vocal supporter of the partition of Palestine. Once Israel was established, he urged the United States to provide the aid that would enable the new state to absorb the many refugees then arriving. In his speeches, he took the position that Washington and the world were not doing enough (NYT, 1985). SUBJECT(S): Palestine, Jewish nationalism, Christianity.

Palestinian Jews aided the British army as much as the army would allow, eventually requesting to serve “with His Majesty’s forces as an independent Zionist army. ” Mowrer outlines their hopes to convince the British government to grant them statehood post-war so that they may open Palestine to the Jewish refugee population from Europe. “They hope that the Americans-Government, Jews and liberals-will urge the British to do this over the wishes of the MacMichaels, and, incidentally, save about 2, 000, 000 harmless people from Hitler’s sadists, in the process. ” Edgar Ansel Mowrer “won the Pulitzer Prize for Correspondence for his reporting on the rise of Adolf Hitler in Germany, and was named president of the Foreign Press Association. In his dispatches from Germany he had managed to cut below the patina of normalcy to capture events that challenged the belief that Germany’s transformation was democratic and natural and was therefore a target of Nazi ire” (Wikipedia, 2016).

Statehood-year detailed account of an environmental approach to economic and political security in Palestine. Lowdermilk proposed an irrigation and hydroelectric engineering project using the Jordan Valley that could irrigate and provide electricity for the entire region. “Joint reclamation projects for irrigated farming, power development and industry will raise the economic standards of both the Arab and Jewish States, and prove to be the safest and surest road for genuine cooperation between the two groups. ” Put simply, Lowdermilk’s proposal could have been the key first step towards peace in the Middle East. The timing of the project, however, was very tenuous--at the time of publication, the UN had voted in favor of the modified Partition Plan, but the British Mandate had not yet finished. Walter Clay Lowdermilk “was a soil conservationist who worked in countries throughout the world to help protect and reclaim lands in order to better feed their population” (Wikipedia, 2016).

From the birth of the State of Israel, a short history of the Jewish state from the UN General Assembly’s decision on November 29th, 1947 through early days of state. Shows how the British did not follow through on their end of the bargain and did much to put the Jews at a military disadvantage upon declaring statehood. “Broadly speaking, it can be said that Britain failed completely to co-operate with the Palestine Commission on any of these proposals. It refused to open a port for Jewish immigration on February 1st, thus preventing entry from Cyprus of the Jews whom Britain has been interning there over the past few years, for the crime of daring to try and land in Palestine (all, that is to say, except the “Exodus” passengers who, to teach them a lesson, were taken back to German concentration camps). ” Paints the Arab population in a very favorable light, indicating a disinterest amongst many to go to war against their Jewish neighbors.

This essay was written originally written in 1948 but wasn’t published until 1950. “Though Arendt remained a Zionist activist both during and after World War II, after the war's conclusion, she also made it clear she favored the creation of a Jewish-Arab federated state in Palestine, rather than a purely Jewish state, as a means of both addressing Jewish statelessness and avoiding the pitfalls of nationalism. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) She begins this essay by writing that “Peace in the Near East is essential to the State of Israel, to the Arab people and to the Western World… it cannot be imposed from the outside, (and) it can only be the result of negotiations, of mutual compromise and eventual agreement between Jews and Arabs. ” OCLC lists 8 copies worldwide.

Some propaganda which is put about would have you believe that the Arab states are entitled to an air of grievance or of injury, as though history in its broad movements has done ill by them; as though Israel has been singled out for favoritism in the Middle East; as though Israel alone has inherited the great boon and the challenge of sovereignty which has been denied to other people. ” Abba Eban, known for his eloquent oratory, was “Israeli Foreign Affairs Minister, Education Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, and ambassador to the United States and to the United Nations. He was also Vice President of the United Nations General Assembly” (Wikipedia, 2016). SUBJECT(S): International relations, Israel relations, Middle East politics.

Original Typed Report. 12mo. 31 pages; 30 cm. In English. This is the DP-period May 1952 Executive Report from the New York Jewish Agency for Palestine, now known as the Jewish Agency for Israel, which is the largest Jewish nonprofit organization in the world. This original type-written report of the financial expenditures and programmatic activities of the Jewish Agency documents one of the most important segments of the Agency’s history. David Ben-Gurion was executive of the Agency until 1948, when he left to become Israel’s 1st Prime Minister. In 1952, the Knesset passed the “Zionist Organization-Jewish Agency for Israel Law, ” which formalized the Jewish Agency’s responsibility to supervise Aliyah, absorption, and settlement in the State of Israel. Interestingly, this New York Executive Report uses the name “Jewish Agency for Palestine, ” even though the organization began to use the name “Jewish Agency for Israel” in 1948.

The movement was established in 1925 and at the time of this booklet’s publication, contained 45 kibbutzim around Israel. The early kevuot, distinguishable from kibbutzim, had small memberships based upon the idea that the community should be small enough to constitute a kind of enlarged family. During the post-WWI third Aliyah, when larger numbers of pioneering settlers arrived, Shlomo Levi and many others proposed the establishment of large, self-sufficient villages, combining agriculture with industry, for which the name "kibbutz" was used. Later, however, the distinction between the two terms almost disappeared. SUBJECT: Kibbutz movement. No copies on OCLC. Cover wrappers are slightly faded. Overall Very Good Condition. Rare.

Title translates to “The Land Collective. ” A promotional booklet for Ha-Shomer Ha-Zair’s Ha-Kibuttz Ha-Arzi movement. This movement, one of the largest of its kind, was founded in 1927. Its ideological basis was a belief in the kibbutz as an instrument for fulfilling the Zionist ideal, furthering the class struggle, and building a Socialist society. Its founding members, who belonged to the Ha-Shomer ha-? A'ir youth movement, came from Poland and Galicia during the Second Aliyah and established the movement's first kibbutz. In the 50 years that followed, the population of its kibbutzim grew to over 31, 000 persons, of whom some 16, 000 were members and 10, 000 children. Ha-Kibbutz ha-Ar? I regarded the kibbutz as an autonomous unit of social life, comprehending all spheres of economic, social, cultural, political, and educational activity, which were developed on principles laid down by the movement as a whole – both as an instrument for the realization of Zionism, the class struggle and the building of Socialism, and as an end in itself: the archetype of the Socialist society. Its ideology was founded on pioneering Zionism paving the way for mass aliyah, the kibbutz way of life, integration of settlement work with political activity, Jewish political independence combined with Jewish-Arab cooperation, and the defense of Israel's security coupled with unremitting efforts to achieve peace.

Kook (1865-1935), born in Latvia, was a religious Zionist and the first Ashkenazi chief rabbi in Eretz Israel. He was ordained a rabbi in 1888, serving in Zaumel, Bausk, and after migrating, in Jaffa. Stuck in Euope during WWI, Kook temporarily led a congregation in London and encouraged Zionist activity there; after the war he was made chief rabbi of Jerusalem. His devotion to Israel as a religious entity often brought him conflict with other Zionists, both secularists and other rabbis who held practical interests above religious ones.

In English. “Auto-Emancipation (Selbstemanzipation) is an early Zionist pamphlet written in German by Russian-Polish Jewish doctor and activist Leo Pinsker in 1882. Pinsker discussed the origins of antisemitism and argued for Jewish self-rule and the development of a Jewish national consciousness. He wrote that Jews would never be the social equals of non-Jews until they had a state of their own. He called on Jewish leaders to convene and address the problem. In the pamphlet, he describes anti-Jewish attacks as a psychosis, a pathological disorder and an irrational phobia. Pinsker had originally been an assimilationist, calling for greater respect of human rights for Jews in Russia. However, following massive anti-Jewish riots in Tsarist Russia in 1881, and a visit to Western Europe in the first half of 1882, his views changed. That year he published the essay anonymously in German. Pinsker's new perspective also led to his involvement in the development of the Jewish nationalist group Hovevei Zion, which he chaired. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) OCLC lists 11 copies worldwide.

Original Blue Paper Wrappers, 8vo. 205pp. Dov Ber Borochov (1881 –1917) was a “Marxist Zionist and one of the founders of the Labor Zionist movement as well as a pioneer in the study of Yiddish as a language…. As an adult he joined the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party but was expelled when he formed a Zionist Socialist Workers Union in Yekaterinoslav. Subsequently, he helped form the Poale Zion party and devoted his life to promoting the party in Russia, Europe, and America. When the Russian social democrats came to power, Borochov returned to Russia in March 1917 to lead the Poale Zion…. Borochov became highly influential in the Zionist movement because he explained nationalism in general, and Jewish Nationalism in particular in terms of Marxist class struggle and dialectical materialism. Borochov predicted, correctly, that nationalist forces would be more important in determining events than economic and class considerations, especially as concerned the Jews. Borochov argued that the class structure of European Jews resembled an inverted class pyramid where few Jews occupied the productive layers of society as workers. The Jews would migrate from country to country as they were forced out of their chosen professions by a ‘stychic process’ which would ultimately force migration to Palestine, where they would form a proletarian basis in order to carry out Marxist class struggle. A key part of Borochovian ideology was that the Arab and Jewish working classes had a common proletarian interest and would participate in the class struggle together once Jews had returned to Palestine” (Wikipedia 2015).

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.

He was born at Soultz-Haut-Rhin, then in the French department of Haut-Rhin. His real name was Goschel David Behr (or Baer); the name Carmoly, borne by his family in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, was adopted by him when quite young. He studied Hebrew and Talmud at Colmar; and, because both French and German were spoken in his native town, he became proficient in those languages. Carmoly went to Paris, and there assiduously studied the old Hebrew manuscripts in the Bibliothèque Nationale, where he was employed. Several articles published by him on various subjects in scientific papers made him known; and on the establishment of a Jewish consistory in Belgium, he was appointed rabbi at Brussels (May 18, 1832). In this position Carmoly rendered many services to the newly founded congregation, chiefly in providing schools for the poor. Seven years later, having provoked great opposition by his new scheme of reforms, Carmoly resigned the rabbinate and retired to Frankfort, where he devoted himself wholly to Jewish literature and to the collection of Hebrew books and manuscripts, in which he was passionately interested. His grandfather was Isaachar Bär ben Judah Carmoly, rabbi of Sulz. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) “Petachiah of Regensburg, also known as Petachiah ben Yakov, Moses Petachiah, and Petachiah of Ratisbon, was a Bohemian rabbi of the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries CE.

    589. VINTAGE ZIM PASSENGER AND SHIPPING ASHTRAY. Square light blue early bakelite-type plastic with white lettering, about 3 x 3 x 1.5." Most likely from a ZIM cruiseliner between 1950 and 1964. ZIM was founded in 1945, by the Jewish Agency and the Histadrut. The first ship was purchased in partnership with Harris and Dixon (based in London) in 1947. This vessel was refurbished, renamed SS Kedma, and sailed to the future state of Israel in the summer of 1947. During her first years, her main task was transporting hundreds of thousands of immigrants to the emerging state. Some of the other ships that had been used for clandestine immigration before the establishment of Israel as a state were confiscated by the British mandate authorities and later joined the company's fleet. The company continued to purchase more ships, among them SS Negba, SS Artza and SS Galila. During the 1948 war, the company was the sole maritime connection with the state of Israel, supplying food, freight and military equipment. In 1953, some of the money from the reparations agreement between Israel and West Germany was allocated to the purchase of new ships. The SS Bergensfjord, renamed Jerusalem, sailed the Israel-New York route. In 1950s and 1960s, ZIM concentrated on passenger ships, alongside a constant expansion of the cargo shipping business. Passenger liners were a common means of international transport before the emergence of cheap air transport, and pleasure cruises were also popular. ZIM sailed the Mediterranean Sea, as well as having regular routes to the United States. Some of its ships cruised to the Caribbean during the winter. 1964 saw the completion of the ocean liner SS Shalom, which turned out to be a failure, marking the end of the ZIM passenger shipping era.

    597. Funkenstein, Amos. JEWISH HISTORICAL CLAIMS TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL. San Francisco, The Congregation Emanu-El, 1989. First edition. Original paper wrappers with synagogue logo. 8vo. 12 pages; 23 cm. Examines several claims about the Jewish connection to Israel through a historical lens. Amos Funkenstein, winner of the Israel Prize for History, was a professor at several universities throughout his career and was considered a genius by most colleagues. “Considered rare even among world-class academics for his intellectual abilities, Funkenstein was primarily a historian of Judaism, medieval intellectualism and science” (JWeekly, 1995). “But if we mean to say that the people of Israel have a claim over the Land of Israel, a historical claim, a claim born out of the fact that they were driven out of the country through the vicissitudes of history and longed to return there; and that they indeed got a chance to return there and to establish their flourishing mode of living -- in this sense, indeed, Israel has a claim over the Land of Israel. But so do the Arabs who live there, who have lived there for a thousand years. ” Part of the Daniel E. Koshland Memorial Lecture Series. SUBJECT(S): Israel, Jewish History. OCLC lists only 1 copy worldwide (U of Florida). Very minimal markings. Very good + condition. (zion-12-30). (ID #37981) $75.00.

    599. Kastan, Isidor. HERR ROBERT VON MOHL UND DIE JUDENEMANCIPATION; EINE ERWIDERUNG. Berlin, J. M. Späth, 1869. First edition. Original paper wrappers. 8vo. 30 pages; 22 cm. In German. Title translates to “Mr. Robert von Mohl and the Jewish Emancipation; a reply” in English. Jewish emancipation “was the external (and internal) process in various nations in Europe of eliminating Jewish disabilities, e. G. Jewish quotas, to which Jewish people were then subject, and the recognition of Jews as entitled to equality and citizenship rights on a communal, not merely individual, basis” (Wikipedia, 2016). Emancipation was a slow process and many regions were reluctant to enact change. Jewish emancipation was a hot topic in Berlin in 1869 because of the flux in powers in the region; as new powers declared Berlin their capital, they wrote new constitutions, constitutions that had the potential to either eliminate existing emancipation laws or add new ones. In 1869, the year in which this book was written, Berlin went from being the capital of Prussia, which had emancipated Jews in 1812, to being the capital of the North German Confederation, which, emancipated Jews in 1869, this very year. Dr. Isidor Kastan, a German journalist, writer, and physician, defended Jewish emancipation, and here disputed von Mohl’s anti-Jewish views. SUBJECT(S): Jewish Emancipation, Anti-Semitism.

In English. Robert Szold (1889–1977) was U. S. Lawyer and Zionist. He served as assistant attorney general in Puerto Rico and assistant to U. S. Solicitor General John W. Davis before returning to private practice. He was heavily active in world Zionism and aligned himself with the Brandeis-Mack forces, which were nevertheless ousted by the Weizmann supporters from the Zionist Organization of America administration in 1921. He was among those who opposed the 1937 proposal of partitioning Palestine between Jews and Arabs. Yet at the 22nd World Zionist Congress in 1946, Szold supported Weizmann in his desire to negotiate with the British instead of the more militant position of Abba Hillel Silver, which prevailed.
