1st edition. Original paper wrappers, 12mo, 31 pages. Includes facsimile ; 18 cm. Title translates into English as "Mikveh Yehudah: To carry out in every Mikveh Katan." The first non-liturgical Hebrew book published only in Canada (a Hebrew title, Derekh ha-shalom, published in both Toronto and New York appeared in 1910; Congregation Shearith Israel in Montreal published an order of prayer booklet in 1890 for the opening of a new Shul) . Instructions on building a home-mikveh. In Hebrew and Yiddish. Friedberg, Mem-3382. Rabbi Rosenberg believed that there was no halachic barrier to using city water to build a small mikvah in one’s own home. This was also the opinion of Rabbi P. Horenblass of Warsaw in his approbation (dated 1913) , a facsimile of which is included in the book. Rabbi Horenblass states that this idea should not be considered a reform, warning that "You should ignore the ‘Lashon Hara’ of ignorant lightheaded people who learn only to insult the real Talmidei Chachamim of this generation. " Rabbi David Miller of Oakland espoused a similar point of view, though this view was not well received in Orthodox circles. Nevertheless, it would have been an important tool in small Jewish communities in Canada and the American West at the time. Rabbi Rosenberg arrived in Toronto in 1913 and move to Montreal in 1919. For a biography and appreciate of Rabbi Rosenberg’s personality, see N. Baumol, "Harav Yehudah (Yudel) Rosenberg, " in Yovel Buch Talmud Torah Eitz Chaim, page 104-119. Probably published and distributed by Rabbi Rosenberg himself, as it includes his stamp on the final page. SUBJECT(S) Mikveh.
