A propos de cet article

Original Wraps. 8vo. 91 Leaves, 7 leaves of plates [182; 14 pages]. 23 cm. First edition. "Revised proof printed as manuscript. " Leaves are printed single sided. Informative memorandum on the Western Wall, with copious historical documentation, citations from communal and rabbinic sources, explorers and archaelogists investigations, and contemporary government documents. "Many intercommunal conflicts about the Western Wall occurred in the 1920s. The British set up a committee of inquiry and consequently an international committee (consisting of a Swede, a Swiss, and a Dutchman) was appointed by the League of Nations to resolve 'the problem of the Wall. ' The committee met in Jerusalem, in the summer of 1930, and the results of "the trial of the Wall, " as it became known, were as follows: (a) the Muslims had absolute ownership of the Wall; (b) the Jews had the uncontested right to worship and to place seats in the street; (c) the Jews were not to blow the shofar there. The Arabs objected. The Jews accepted, except for the prohibition to blow the shofar, which was considered a searing humiliation. " - 2008 EJ. Cyrus Adler (1863-1940) "born in Arkansas and raised in Pennsylvania, Cyrus Adler was a prominent Jewish scholar, educator, and leader. A nephew of the Philadelphian Sulzbergers (Mayer and David) , Adler developed an interest in libraries, Semitics, and Assyriology, earning a Ph. D from Johns Hopkins. In 1888, Adler began work at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D. Circa, and eventually became the President of Dropsie College in Philadelphia. Adler was active in Jewish affairs and history, in the American Jewish Historical Society, the Jewish Theological Seminary, the United Synagogue, the American Jewish Committee, the Jewish Agency for Palestine, The Jewish Encyclopedia, the National Jewish Welfare Board, and he participated in the 1919 Paris Peace Conference.
