About this Item

(FT) 688-690 [1927-1930]. Cloth, 167 pages, 8vo, 2nd volume, 24 cm. Frumkin (1845-1916) "studied rabbinics in his native Kelme, Lithuania, and at the Slobodka Yeshivah. He visited Erez Israel in 1867, and after two years in Odessa, returned to Jerusalem in 1871. There he began research for a history of the rabbis and scholars of Jerusalem, Toledot Hakhmei Yerushalayim. Frumkin's account of his first visit to Jerusalem, Massa Even Shemu'el (1871) , gives important source material on conditions in Erez Israel at the time. Returning to Lithuania, Frumkin was ordained a rabbi and took a rabbinical post at Ilukste, Latvia. After the 1881 pogroms, Frumkin participated, representing Hovevei Zion, in the consultations held in Germany to consider the plight of Russian Jewry. There he advocated settlement in Erez Israel as a solution, opposing emigration to the United States. With the financial support of Emil Lachman, a wealthy Berlin Jew, he bought land in Petah Tikvah, built the first house there, and began a heroic ten-year period as a farmer-scholar, braving malaria and other dangers, establishing a talmud torah and a small yeshivah, and persuading more settlers to move there from Yehud. " (Michael Berenbaum and Fred Skolnik in EJ, 2007) . Vol. 1 includes facsimilies of several sections illustrative of the original edition (Vilna, 1874) . Includes bibliography of Frumkin (vol. 1 p. 1-iv) . Also includes bibliographical references. Subject: Jewish scholars. Rabbis -- Jerusalem -- Biography. Jerusalem -- Biography. Wear and tear on cover and binding. Otherwise very good condition. (k-rab-1-29). Bookseller Inventory # 21680
