About this Item

Cloth, 40 pages, 8vo. In German. Lewy (1841-1917) "studied at the Breslau Jewish Theological Seminary. At the opening of the Hochschule fuer die Wissenschaft des Judentum in Berlin in 1872, he became its lecturer in Talmud. In 1883 he returned to the Breslau Seminary in the same capacity and as Seminarrabbiner. Apart from his erudition in all branches of Jewish and general scholarship, Lewy brought a keen analytical sense and conjectural brilliance to the field of talmudical studies. He combined this freedom of enquiry with deep piety and strict observance. Lewy's scholarly output is relatively small in quantity, but terse in style and free of polemics. It mainly appeared in the annual reports of the Hochschule and the Breslau seminary. " (Rothschild in EJ, 2007) . From library of Shalom Spiegel with bookplate. Series: Jahresbericht des Jüdisch-theologischen Seminars "Fraenckel'scher Stiftung". Good Condition. Wear and tear on cover and binding. Includes one page membership list with many names. (rab-1-19) Mx3, rab5, ger7. Bookseller Inventory # 21670
