About this Item

(FT) Hardcover, 8vo, 122 pages, 20 cm. In Hebrew. SUBJECT(S) : Title Subject: Aggada -- Commentaries. 880-03, Pardes rimonim. Zweifel (1815–1888) was a "Hebrew author and essayist, one of the first Haskalah writers to view Hasidism sympathetically. Zweifel was born in Mogilev. His father belonged to the Chabad movement, and his traditional education included rabbinic and Hasidic literature, medieval studies, and Kabbalah. Later, he studied the works of the Haskalah and the Wissenschaft des Judentums writers in Hebrew and German. After many years of wandering in various Russian towns, earning his living by preaching and teaching, he was appointed lecturer in Mishnah and Talmud in the government rabbinical seminary at Zhitomir in 1853, remaining there until the seminary was closed in 1873. Zweifel was liked by his students, who included A. J. Paperna and M. Margolis , and inspired them with a love of Jewish tradition and the Talmud. By nature, he was a moderate; he tried "as far as possible to emphasize the favorable aspect of everything and every person" (preface to his Shalom al Yisrael, 3 (1870) , 11) . Zweifel’s writings are distinguished by profuse quotations from rabbinic sources and his wide erudition. They lack, however, systematic structure, and today his works are primarily of historical interest" (Slutsky in EJ 2010) .
