About this Item

Vienna: Alexander Kohut Memorial Foundation, 1933. Cloth; royal 8vo. Lvi, 308, 300+ pages. Title page in Hebrew on verso. Frontispiece mounted photograph of Chajes. In German and Hebrew. Series: Veröffentlichungen der Alexander Kohut memorial foundation, bd. VII. A memorial volume prepared by a committee of friends; prefatory note signed by V. Aptowitzer and A. Z. Schwartz for the committee. Chajes was a rabbi, scholar, and author. "During his nine years of office in Vienna, the second largest community in Europe, Chajes was the undisputed spiritual leader of Austrian Jewry, though his Zionist views were unpopular with the wealthy and comfortable assimilationists, and his liberal scholarship as well as his Zionism antagonized most of the Orthodox. But his influence on the younger generation was considerable. In time he was recognized as one of the leading men in world Jewry. A fine orator and a charismatic personality, Chajes greatly impressed his audiences with his sermons and speeches beginning with his first address as chief rabbi of Vienna, in which he made his Zionist confession of faith. In his charitable activities he was much helped by his friendship with some American Jewish leaders, and he visited the United States twice. Chajes took a great interest in Jewish education, founding or reviving two Jewish elementary schools, a high school (which after his death was given his name) , the religious teachers' seminary, and in particular, a Hebrew paedagogium, of which he was director and where he taught Bible. He also served on the board of the Jewish Theological Seminary. " (Salo W. Baron, EJ) SUBJECT(S) : Hebrew literature. Chajes, Hirsch Perez, 1876-1927. OCLC lists 23 copies worldwide.
