A propos de cet article

Original paper wrappers. 8vo. [2], 24, 10 pages. 22 cm. First edition. In Hebrew, Yiddish, and English. Added English title page: Pearls of the Talmud and Medrash. "This volume of mussar, in Yiddish, Hebrew and English, contains adaptations from Midrash and aggadah. While many of Wishnewitz’s contemporaries bemoaned the rampant Sabbath desecration and non-observance that existed in America, he believed that ‘without a doubt shortly America will become a place of Torah. They will observe the Sabbath and they will establish many Talmud Torahs and the young students will be educated and they will observe [the Sabbath]. The rest depends on God and it is our obligation only to do what we can to strengthen ourselves, our children, and our children’s children’ (p. 15) . He also asserted that America would be the final country in which the Jews would live prior to being restored to the Land of Israel (p. 14) . (Goldman, Hebrew Printing in America, entry #764) . Wishnewitz (1866-1930/8) was born in Kovno, a rabbi in Krekenava, and immigrated to South Africa in 1896; he died in Palestine. This volume was later translated into English and printed in Jerusalem in 1930 under the title ‘Precious Pearls’. Subjects: Talmud Bavli - Commentaries. OCLC lists two copies (Natl Libr Israel, HUC) . Wraps reinforced with paper; light soiling to wraps, otherwise fresh and clean. Very Good condition. (AMR-44-18) Xx. N° de réf. du libraire 31556
