Steinman (1892–1970) was a "Hebrew writer. Born in Obodovka, Steinman was ordained a rabbi, and began to write at an early age, but it took some time before his first stories appeared in print. Steinman pursued literary work and was also a part-time Hebrew teacher in Odessa. He contributed regularly to Ha-Zefirah and worked on translations, which were not published until a later date. During this period, he began to publish long stories ("Bi-Ymei ha-Besht", in: Ha-Zefirah) , as well as essays and articles. In 1920 he left Russia. Steinman was the most prolific Hebrew writer of his generation. While the essays published (in Davar and in the book form, Perudot (1965) ) , comprise a large part of his total output, works still in manuscript would fill dozens of volumes of fiction, memoirs, and autobiography. In later years he also undertook a massive project designed to make the resources of Jewish culture more readily available by rendering the texts in his own version and adding his own introductory notes and essays. The first book, Be’er ha-Hasidut (1951) , was followed by a series of nine books on Hasidism (1958–62) and a collection of Hasidic stories, Kankan ha-Kesef (4 volumes, 1969) . He also wrote Be’er ha-Talmud (4 volumes, 1963–65) , on the Talmud" (Kressel in EJ 2010) . OCLC lists 7 copies worldwide. Repair to spine. Wear to binding. Bumped cover corners and edges.
