Synagogues and their Architecture – May 2021

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Synagogues and their architecture have always been an interest, especially for Hanna. See here her study of the synagogues of Springfield, or here some of the oral histories of the Springfield communities.

Many regrettably are gone and are only  a blessed memory. And now as communities and practices evolve, some shuls are being converted into historical societies and other purposes.

Hiddur mitzvah, beautifying the commandment, has been central to the artistic expression of Jewish people and it is evidenced in the constructions and interiors of synagogues the world over.

May we see our shuls strengthened and rebuilt. As it says in the Talmud:

Do not read your children [banayich], but your builders [bonayich].

Thank you for taking the time to review the list and share with colleagues.

Shalom,

Ken aka Yekutiel

Kafka – German Judaica – April 2021

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

In the midst of the Omer am delighted to share with you this list of German Judaica. I hope you will find some works that you were not familiar with that you feel must be part of your library or collection.

We continue to have books arriving at our “genizah” and spend wonderful times cataloguing the tomes, many never seen before after thirty years as a book dealer.

The woods have been lovely, dark, and deep; may we be soon out of them and back together in celebration. And  may you all be well protected and back together with family and friends in congregation.

Vielleicht feiern alle bald, mit allen besten Wünschen.

Shalom,

Ken aka Kaufmann

Wolf Heidenheim (1757–1832), a scholar, translator, and commentator on Jewish liturgy, shaped the development of the Roedelheim mahzor for the first three decades of the 19th century. Upon founding his publishing house in Roedelheim in 1799, the mahzor was one of the first books he printed. Its continuous publication became a life-long project for Heidenheim, one through which he contributed to the preservation of Jewish traditions as well as to their rejuvenation. Heidenheim was the first publisher who reviewed old manuscripts and texts to correct errors that had been passed on in the mahzor. He also removed those piyyutim, Jewish liturgical poems recited on holidays, that were no longer understood. Typographic layout and outward appearance of the books were another aspect Heidenheim transformed: Over time, the books included more decorative embellishments.(from Leo Baeck Institute)  (267742)                $125.00

In the mid 1850s a supplement tothe Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums was published regularly, entitled Jüdisches Volksblatt zur Belehrung und Unterhaltung auf Jüdischem Gebiete (A Popular Jewish Journal for Instruction and Entertainment on Jewish Subjects). Philippson’s chief aim was the civil emancipation of the Jews, carrying on the fight for that cause in the spirit of Gabriel Riesser’s earlier periodical Der Jude (1832-1835).] The paper was a voice for moderate religious reform, focusing attention on the organization of religious instruction, the form of worship in the synagogue, and the cultivation of all branches of Jewish learning. It also advocated for closer relations with non-Jews. It exercised considerable influence on Judaism in general, and, in particular, on the evolution of Judaism in Germany. It played a role in the establishment of a rabbinical seminary (Lehranstalt für die Wissenschaft des Judenthums) in Berlin, and of a Jewish Publication Society (Institut zur Förderung der Israelitischen Literatur), as well as the calling together of a Jewish synod (Leipzig, 1869).(Wikipedia) OCLC Number:      255337766  (279801)      $185.00

“Ahavah Rabah” – Judaica – January 2021

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Enclosed please find a Judaica list ushering in the New Year.

May it be a year of endings and beginnings; an ending to the plague. May this year see the restoration of health and well-being to our planet and may it bring reconciliations, so that we may have much to celebrate together.

Am reading Sasha Abramsky’s homage to his grandfather, The House of Twenty Thousand Books, and wish to share a few passages that ring very true to these times.

Over the decades Chimen had become so addicted to the printed page, to the texture of his books, to the feel of the old manuscripts, and to the material contained within his written correspondences, that he ended up surrounding himself with walls of words. They provided protection from the madness of the world outside-or, at the very least a road map for navigating the chaos.

And Abramsky further writes:

From my early childhood days, Chimen taught me how to interpret the world around me, how to use ideas carefully, to create patterns out of chaos He made me realize that we are in a large part  defined by our pasts-both our individual pasts and our collective histories. We are the aggregate of generations of experiences lived by our ancestors but we are inevitably also the products of our times, influenced by wars and revolutions, by social upheavals, by economic turmoil, by scientific advances, and so on and o forth.

And a lovely image from Aryeh Wineman’s book Beyond Appearances: Stories from Kabbalistic Ethical Writings.

Once there was a Hassid  living in a small village. He had no books whatsoever except one tractate of the Talmud, Hagigah and all his days he studied that tractate with devotion. He lived a very long life, and at the end, prior to his death, that tractate assumed the form of a woman. Then, following his death, she walked before him, showing him the way to Paradise.

May our studies give us comfort…

Shalom uvbrachah
Ken

“Among the subjects which attracted his (Rathjens) inquisitive mind was the Jewish community of Yemen, groups of which then were found all over the Yemenite Highland. While in San’a, the capital of Yemen, he often visited the Jewish quarter, which originally had been a town by itself, lying about two kilometers west of the Old City. He soon discovered that, in ground plan and architecture, the houses in the Jewish quarter were essentially different from the Muslim houses and set out to study that interesting phenomenon in detail.” (S.D.

Tallis by Jane Trigère

“Steiner” – Judaica – October 2020

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

For the previous Judaica catalog we quoted from Carlos Zafon’s Shadow of the Wind. To continue that tradition here is a quote from a mystery set in a Brooklyn bookshop.

That’s why I call this place the Haunted Bookshop. Haunted by the ghosts of the books I haven’t read. Poor uneasy spirits, they walk and walk around me.

The Haunted Bookshop by Christopher Morley

Some years ago we described our bookshop in the firehouse as follows:

In the spirit of The Haunted Bookshop, perusing the stacks here you might bump into Franz Kafka reading an insurance text, Theodor Herzl reading a work on Palestine in the 19th century, Sigmund Freud pondering a piece by Stekel, Abraham Heschel reading a tome on mysticism and Bruno Schulz chatting under the sign of the crocodiles.

Wandering the aisles is an intellectual journey that stretches into 19th century Vienna and Berlin and ends up in the modern world. It is the kind of place to linger and delight in the journeys of others and commence your own pilgrimage. It is a respite from the maddening pace and pressures of modern life, a place of solace and also community.

May your journey in this new Judaica catalog offer you both solace and delight in a time of much upheaval and confusion. And perhaps a volume will appear that appeals to your curiosity  ….

It is now two years since Hanna Jane’s death and I want in her memory to share something she wrote:

When our daily life is touched by beauty, we are affected profoundly. Good design of ordinary tools and materials is a true blessing. When these items are also beautiful our spirit soars.

In Jewish custom, we perform a mitzvah when we raise the common to the level of princes. This act is called hiddur mitzvah. So we embroider challah covers, we sculpt menorahs we weave colorful prayer shawls, and we bind a siddur…our hands direct our hearts toward the Creator.

May her memory be for a blessing.

“Devarim” – Judaica – October 2020

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I hope you all are doing well physically and spiritually in the midst of this epidemic and taking good care.

And the chagim were uplifting and spent with some family  or friends.
It is certainly also a time of much solitude.

Books have continued to be my close companions, offering consolation and sustenance in this book sanctuary. I spend much of the day perusing and cataloguing them, and plan now to send out more lists. We also welcome learning what you are researching and perhaps we can suggest a tome from our genizah.

I came across the following from an essay by Abraham Joshua Heschel as an introduction  to photos by Roman Vishniac in a book entitled Polish Jewry.

“In almost every Jewish home, even in the humblest and poorest, stood a bookcase full of volumes; proud and stately folio-tomes together with shy small-sized books. Books were neither an asylum for the frustrated nor a means for occasional edification. They were furnaces of living strength, time proof receptacles for the eternally valid coins of the spirit. Almost every Jew gave of his time to learning….”

May we continue to be inspired in our learning and quests and journeys into bookland.  May we experience perplexity and delight in the search for answers and questions.

He was dismissed from this post after the Nazis came to power in March, 1933. He received a job offer from Ferdinand Rieser, director of the Pfauenbühne in Zurich and emigrated to Switzerland, where he transformed the provincial stage into one of the most important German-language theaters outside Germany..In 1934, he was dismissed from his post after differences with Rieser and spent time working in a publishing house. In 1935, he traveled to Moscow as a correspondent for the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, where he also worked briefly as a directorial assistant for Vsevolod Meyerhold. After the dissolution of Meyerhold’s theater, he returned to Zurich, where he helped to found the “Neues Schauspiel AG”, which became the legal successor to the Schauspielhaus in Zurich. He served as the new company’s first dramaturg and became its vice director in 1946. In 1961, he became the artistic and managing director of the Schauspielhaus Zurich.Hirschfeld was one of the discoverers and early supporters of the Swiss playwrights Max Frisch and Friedrich Dürrenmatt. He had a special interest in the dramatic works of Bertolt Brecht. Thanks to his personal friendship with Brecht, he was responsible for three premieres of Brecht’s work during World War II.

In folk custom this kind of work has protective talismanic effect on the owner and has been purchased for that reason….. A native of Prague, R. Isaiah Halevi Horowitz (1565?-1630) settled in Jerusalem in 1621, where he was appointed Rabbi of the Aschkenazic Community of the city and where he availed himself of the esoteric teachings of R. Isaac Luria and his disciples. These kabbalistic teachings were duly incorporated in his magnum opus, Shnei Luchoth HaBerith. Part Halachic Code and part Kabbalistic treatise, the Shnei Luchoth Habrith exerted great influence on the life of the Aschenazi Jewish world and helped more than any other work to introduce the Kabbalah into daily religious life. Prof. Scholem observed that ” its expressive power and rich content made it a classic.” G. Scholem, Kabbbalah (1974) OCLC Number:    27223076  (278628)         $725.00

Rybak’s masterpiece remains the lithographic album, Shtetl, mayn khoreve heym, a gedenkenish (Shtetl, My Destroyed Home, a Memory; 1923), in which he evokes the shtetl in dark tones, fusing cubism and expressionism, assymetrical design, exaggerated facial features, and interpenetrating planes. This style is superimposed upon such prototypical images of religious life as the synagogue, the religious school, Jewish holidays, funerals, and weddings. Representative types of shtetl occupations include the cobbler, the knife sharpener, the butcher, and the Rabbi.(YIVO Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe)  (279013)             $3,600.00

“Mezuzah” – Judaica – January 2020

pro-Miriam

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I appreciate your taking the time and commitment reviewing this list of recent acquisitions. Our goal has always been to fulfill and nourish the scholar and librarian’s quest for unusual and hard-to-find Judaica and books on the Shoah. This is a dance we do together. It also involves your choosing to waltz along with us.

Above is an illustration made by my late wife, Jane Trigère, based on a story called The Scribe’s Tale by S.Y. Agnon. More such illustrations and their significance can be seen by going to Jane’s website at JaneTrigere.com and going to “Artwork > Women and Their Stories“. For the last few weeks we have been reading about Joseph in the Torah, and I thought it would be inspiring to share some of Jane’s writing about the parshiot.

Shalom,
Ken aka Yekutiel

The Journal is intended as an interdisciplinary forum for scholars specialising in art history, the history of ideas and cultural history. It publishes articles based on new research, normally from primary sources. Topics include the arts in their various forms, religion, philosophy, science, literature and magic, as well as intellectual, political and social life, from antiquity to the dawn of the contemporary era. Usually the subjects discussed either centre on or have some connection with Western, typically European cultures; therefore, too, the Journal provides a home for research into the many interconnections between those cultures and others which have flourished beyond European borders – particularly, but by no means limited to, the cultures and learning of the Near East.(from the blurb of Warburg Institute) (276994) $200.00

In folk custom this kind of work has protective talismanic effect on the owner and has been purchased for that reason….. A native of Prague, R. Isaiah Halevi Horowitz (1565?-1630) settled in Jerusalem in 1621, where he was appointed Rabbi of the Aschkenazic Community of the city and where he availed himself of the esoteric teachings of R. Isaac Luria and his disciples. These kabbalistic teachings were duly incorporated in his magnum opus, Shnei Luchoth HaBerith.

“Lown” – Judaica – November 2019

Dinah.jpg
Dinah, by Jane Trigère

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I appreciate your taking the time and commitment reviewing this list of recent acquisitions. Our goal has always been to fulfill and nourish the scholar and librarian’s quest for unusual and hard-to-find Judaica and books on the Shoah. This is a dance we do together. It also involves your choosing to waltz along with us.

The 16th of November will mark (on the Hebrew calendar) a year since my wife Hanna Jane left us. Alongside is an illustration she made based on a story called Family by Devora Baron. More such illustrations and their significance can be seen by going to Jane’s website at JaneTrigere.com and going to “Artwork > Women and Their Stories“. While there, you can also enjoy reading her “Musings” and Midrashim.

I thought I would share some of the books that I’m currently hoping to read (laughs). Some are old favorites, and some are new discoveries.

  • Survivors and Exiles: Yiddish Culture After the Holocaust, Jan Schwarz
  • The World of Yesterday, Stefan Zweig
  • From That Place and Time: A Memoir, Lucy Dawidowicz (inspired by a lecture by Professor Nancy Sinkoff, who has a book coming out on Dawidowicz)
  • The Flight Portfolio, A Novel, Julie Orringer (about Varian Fry and his rescue work in France. Her last novel, The Invisible Bridge, was stunning)
  • Selected Poems, Elaine Feinstein

The old favorites:

  • My Grandfather’s Blessings, Rachel Remen
  • Under the Table & How to Get Up: Jewish Pathways of Spiritual Growth, Abraham Greenbaum
  • The Man Who Planted Trees, A Story, Jean Giono

Shalom,

Ken aka Yekutiel

Solomon ibn Gabirol – Judaica – September 2019

Dear friends and colleagues,

As the New Year approaches, I find the writings of Abraham Joshua Heschel inspiring. In a book of essays, Moral Grandeur and Spiritual Audacity, he says the following:

“Our life is beset with difficulties, yet it is never devoid of meaning. The feeling of utility is absent from our souls. Our existence is not in vain. Its meaning may not be explicable to us, yet even when we do not know what it is, we know that it is. There is a divine earnestness about our life. This is our dignity. To be invested with dignity means to represent something more than oneself. The gravest sin for a Jew is to forget what he represents.

“There is a war to wage against the vulgar, against the glorification of the absurd, a war that is incessant, universal. Loyal to the presence of the ultimate and the common, we may be able to make it clear that man is more than man, that in doing the finite he may perceive the infinite.”

We wish you and your loved ones a coming year of good health, much joy, and divine earnestness.

שלום ושנה טובה

She married Yitzhak Rubinstein, who subsequently became Chief Rabbi of Vilna – the first in over 200 years – and she was heavily involved in Vilna community affairs and was an ardent Zionist. This is in contrast to her father who compared Zionists to “the Berlin group . . . of maskilim.”[9] She was also very learned and R. Weinberg provides that when her father couldn’t remember a source, he would ask Ester who could always provide it. Ester was also involved in woman’s issues. She started a girls school in Vilna and wrote why woman’s suffrage is allowed under Jewish law. Ester died young, at age 43, in 1924. A Sefer Zikhron was published in her honor and, among others, R. Weinberg wrote a beautiful article describing Ester in the most honorific terms. An English translation was published by Dr. Leiman. Additionally, a memorial service was held in the Great Synagogue of Vilna, according to Leiman, “this was the only woman ever accorded this honor.” (272840) $40.00

Priestley was an important 18th century theologian. Priestley, who strongly believed in the free and open exchange of ideas, advocated toleration and equal rights for religious Dissenters, which also led him to help found Unitarianism in England. The controversial nature of Priestley’s publications, combined with his outspoken support of the French Revolution, aroused public and governmental suspicion; he was eventually forced to flee in 1791, first to London and then to the United States, after a mob burned down his Birmingham home and church. He spent his last ten years in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania.(Wikipedia) (272306) $325.00
