About this Item

Narrow 8vo. 12 pages. Illustrated. "Inaugural address by Abraham I. Katsh as the third president of the Dropsie College Broad and York Streets Philadelphia, Pa 19132." As the first state-accredited Ph. D. Program of its kind, Dropsie College is the world's founding institution of modern academic Jewish Studies. In the course of its nearly eighty year history, from 1907 through 1986, the College awarded more than 200 doctoral degrees and became a major training center for the country's Judaic scholars. Throughout those years it was the publisher of the Jewish Quarterly Review, the World's oldest continuously published English-language journal of Jewish Studies and one of the most respected scholarly journals in its field. SUBJECT (S) : Jewish studies - Pennsylvania - Philadelphia; Dropsie College for Hebrew and Cognate Learning. OCLC lists no copies worldwide. Katsh (1908-1998) was born in Poland and emigrated to the U. S. In 1925. In 1933, he began teaching at New York University, and over the following three decades taught Hebrew education, culture, language and literature there. In 1957 He founded the National Association of Professors of Hebrew in American Universities, and was elected president of Dropsie College in 1967, where he served until 1976. His scholarship won him many awards and fellowships, including the Jewish Teachers Association of New York's Avodah Award, the Rabbi Kaniel Prize of the Municipality of Haifa, and the first Charles Kramer Research Fellow of the Institute for Jewish Policy Planning and Research of the Synagogue Council of America. Katsh is well known for his studies of Hebrew manuscripts and fragments from Russia and Eastern Europe, his translations, and his essays on Jewish studies in the United States. (EJ) Fine condition.
