A propos de cet article

(FT) Hardcover, 8vo, 12, 108, 144 pages, 22 cm. In Hebrew. SUBJECT(S) : Karo, Joseph ben Ephraim, 1488-1575. Even ha-‘ezer -- Commentaries. Karo, Joseph ben Ephraim, 1488-1575. Hoshen mishpat-- Commentaries. Kahanov (1817–1883) , was a "Jerusalem talmudist. He was born in Belorussia but after his marriage at the age of 15, settled in Petrovice where at the age of 18 he was appointed assistant to the local rabbi. Some years later, he became rabbi of Khaslavich, a city noted for its scholars. In 1864 he set out for Jerusalem. On his arrival, after a journey of six months, he was appointed head of the Ez Hayyim yeshivah, the most important in Jerusalem, remaining in this position until his death. Kahanov was remarkably progressive for his time and environment. He appealed for the founding of industrial enterprises, a daring proposal for that time. He even consented to the proposal of Sir Moses Montefiore to introduce the teaching of the vernacular, Arabic, in his yeshivah, but was obliged to abandon the proposal in the face of pressure from extremist elements. One of the first of the old yishuv to speak only Hebrew, he was also one of those who encouraged settlement outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, building a house for himself in Nahlat Shivah. Among his publications were Erez Hefez, on laws of terumah and tithes; Hukkot Olam, on mixed species; Mei Menuhot on the laws of the sabbath, to which was appended Palgei Mayim, giving rules for those traveling by ship on the sabbath; and Netivot ha-Shalom on the Shulhan Arukh. He applied himself particularly to the question of the application of the laws of the sabbatical year which had become of practical importance with the establishment of the Jewish agricultural colonies, and in this connection published Shenat ha-Sheva. The eulogies he delivered on the deaths of Baron Asher Rothschild and Sir Moses Montefiore were published. His Sha’alu Shelom Yerushalayim on the state of Jerusalem and its citizens was published three times. His will was published in 1968 together with a responsum on Jerusalem and a brief biography" (Alfassi in EJ, 2007) . OCLC lists 2 copies worldwide (Brandeis, Univ Col of London) . Ex library. Binding repair. Chipping on corners and edges. Stained pages. Handwritten notes on inside front and back cover. Wear to cover spine. Otherwise good condition. (Rab-44-19).
