About this Item

First edition. Period boards. 4to. 348 pages, 34 cm. In Hebrew. Goldman, 633. Title translates to: "Responsa Beit Av Hamishai: The Opinion of Rabbi Abraham on Yoreh De’ah. " This is vol. 5 of Yudelovitch’s Beit Av series. It contains responsa that he authored while serving as a rabbi in various American and European cities. Yudelewitz (1850-1930) was a controversial, yet influential rabbi from Novogrudok, Belorussia. He was recognized as a child prodigy and studied in the Volozhin Yeshiva. He served as a rabbi in a number of Lithuanian towns before becoming the chief rabbi of Manchester in 1898. He attended the World Zionist Congress in 1903 and he immigrated to America in 1904. Yudelewitz served as a rabbi in Boston and an instructor in RlETS before becoming a rabbi in Bayonne, NJ , in 1906. He later occupied the pulpit of Beth Hamidrash Hagadol of New York (Eldridge St. ; in his approbation to #645, he signed his name as the chief rabbi of New York) . He served as the president of the Jewish Ministers Association , which was ostracized by the Agudath Harabbonim. He was further cut off from the rabbinical world when he published a controversial work on halitzah. When Yudelewitz died in 1930, many well known rabbis refused to attend his funeral. Among the American rabbis he ordained were Isaac Sodden, and Mordekhai Aaron Kaplan (Goldman, 2006) . SUBJECTS: Responsa -- 1800-1900. Responsa -- 1900- Responsa.
