Yiddish-speaking groups of Communists played a visible role in many countries, most notably in the Soviet Union, United States, Poland, France, Canada, Argentina and Uruguay. The sacrificial role of the Red Army, and the Soviet Union as a whole, reinforced the Left movement in the post-Holocaust Jewish world. Apart from card-careering devotees, such groups attracted numerous sympathisers, including the artist Marc Chagall and the writer Sholem Asch. But the suppression of Yiddish culture in the Soviet Union radically changed the climate in Jewish leftwing circles. Former Communists and sympathisers turned away, while the attention of Yiddish commentators in the West turned to the conditions for Jewish cultural and religious life in the Soviet Union and Poland, Jewish emigration and the situation in the Middle East. Ideological confrontations between Communist Yiddish literati in the Soviet Union, United States, Canada, Poland, France and Israel are in the centre of Gennady Estraikh s pioneering study Yiddish in the Cold War.(blurb)  (266232)    $62.00

In 1891 B’nai Abraham, along with three other synagogues in the area, brought Rabbi Bernard L. Levinthal from Lithuania to the United States to serve as the third rabbi of the congregation. Rabbi Levinthal came to B’nai Abraham after the death of its previous rabbi, Rabbi Eleazar Kleinberg, who was his father-in-law. Though officially the rabbi of B’nai Abraham, Rabbi Levinthal actually functioned more as the unofficial Chief Rabbi of Philadelphia. By the early 20th century he was a frequent speaker throughout the city and only attended services at B’nai Abraham intermittantly, although he continued to hold the pulpit on the High Holidays and other occasions. When in attendance at the synagogue, Rabbi Levinthal gave his sermon in Yiddish. (Bnai Abraham web site)  (265416)    $25.00

107/a.     Yalkut Shimoni on Pentateuch (see below record #107/b for collation). Salonika: 1521-1526. Yalkut Shimoni is a colossal compendium of midrashic or homiletic literature arranged according to the order of the Bible. For some of these now-lost, obscure midrashim, Yalkut Shimoni is our only source. Virtually nothing is known of the compiler of this monumental arrangement of the wisdom of the Rabbis, other than his name, Rabbi Shimon HaDarshan (Rabbi Simon the Preacher). Traditionally, he was a resident of Frankfurt am-Main (though one scholar unsuccessfully attempted to re-biograph him as a Spaniard). It is surmised by scholars that Shimon flourished in the thirteenth century. Historian Azariah dei Rossi (author Me’or ‘Eynayim) possessed a manuscript of Yalkut Shimoni dated 1310.

Yalkut Shimoni is divided into remazim (“allusions”) or chapters, 966 in the Pentateuch (Torah), and 1,085 in the Prophets and Writings (NaKh). (The Salonika edition has 963 remazim in the Pentateuch.) The system of division is not readily comprehensible, and appears at times to be arbitrary on the part of the editor. From a scholarly point of view, one of the great advantages of Yalkut Shimoni is the fact that the editor supplied the sources from which he drew his material. (In the Salonika edition, these referents are supplied internally within the text itself; in the manuscripts, and in subsequent printed editions beginning with that of Venice 1566, the references appear as marginal notes.)

First Edition of Salonika 1521-1526
Good-. full calf with tear to top of spine.

In the aftermath of the tragic Spanish Expulsion of 1492 (followed by the Portuguese Expulsion of 1496-1497), the Ottoman port city of Salonika (Thessaloniki, Greece) became the new cultural capital of Sephardic or Iberian Jewry. These Spanish and Portuguese Jews, who were encouraged to take up residence in the Ottoman Empire by Sultan Bayezid II, soon turned Salonika into a major center of Hebrew publishing. One might find ironic then, that one of the first all-time great works to be produced in Salonika would be that of an Ashkenazic rabbi, a native of Frankfurt!

Be that as it may, the Salonikan imprint proved providential, for it allowed preservation of a provocative anti-Christological passage, which could never have passed Church censorship. In subsequent, heavily censored editions of Yalkut Shimoni, the passage is quite inoffensive:

How far did the voice of Balaam travel?
Rabbi Yohanan said: Sixty miles.
Rabbi Joshua ben Levi said: The seventy nations of the world heard the voice of Balaam.
Rabbi El’azar HaKappar says: God endowed his voice with the power to travel from one end of the world to the other, because he gazed and saw that the nations would bow down to the sun, to the moon, to the stars, to the trees, and to the stones. Therefore, He endowed his voice with the power that all the nations of the world might hear.

(Yalkut Shimoni, Balak, remez 766)
However, in the uncensored first edition of Salonika 1526, we note a significant addition (which is either the original midrashic text, or a later interpolation, depending on one’s perspective). The Hebrew circumlocution “’oto ha-ish” (“that man”) is clearly an allusion to Jesus of Nazareth:
How far did the voice of Balaam travel?
Rabbi Yohanan said: Sixty miles.
Rabbi Joshua ben Levi said: The seventy nations of the world heard the voice of Balaam.
Rabbi El’azar HaKappar says: God endowed his voice with the power to travel from one end of the world to the other, because he gazed and saw that the nations would bow down to the sun, to the moon, to the stars, to the trees, and to the stones. And he gazed and saw that a man, born of woman, would arise in the future seeking to make himself a god and to lead astray the entire world. Therefore, He endowed his voice with the power that all the nations of the world might hear. And thus he would say: Pay heed not to stray after that man (‘oto ha-ish), for it says, “God is not a man, that He should lie” [Numbers 23:19], and if he says that he is a god, then he is lying. And in the future he will deceive by saying that he departs and comes at the End; he said but will not do. See what is written: “And he took up his parable and said, Woe, who shall live after he placed himself God?” [Numbers 24:23]. Said Balaam: Woe! Who can survive that nation which heeded that man (‘oto ha-ish) who made himself a god?
(Yalkut Shimoni [Salonika, 1526], Balak, remez 765 [f.268c])
n the Salonika edition, the section on the Prophets and Writings (NaKh) preceded the section on the Pentateuch (Torah) by five years. The section on the Prophets and Writings appeared in 1521; that on the Pentateuch in 1526.

this book is the first fully developed study of the secularization of Eastern European Jewish folk art traditions in America. Until recently, little was known in the United States about the creative work of European Jewish folk artists. The destruction of the material heritage of Eastern European Jews during World War II has made it very difficult to recover artifacts of Jewish artistry. The physical remnants of that heritage–among them, the types of papercuts, gravestones, and wood carvings featured in this volume–can only suggest how extensive the traditions of Jewish folk art in Eastern Europe once were. Skilled craftsmen, responsible for the painted and carved interiors of Eastern European synagogues and their elaborately carved arks and bimahs, came to the New World in the late nineteenth century, where they soon flourished and became the creators of some of America’s greatest folk art. Folk art embraces many artistic expressions made by gifted individuals who have not had formal training in the arts. Folk artists apply a diverse range of skills to objects used in daily life. Jewish folk artist emigres encountered in the United States a society more interested in what they could produce than in what religion they practiced. Not only did they continue to carve religious artifacts for new synagogues serving fellow immigrants; they also created wooden trade figures, carnival figures, and some of the greatest carousel animals the world has ever seen. This volume tells the story of carvers who, released from Eastern European religious strictures, responded with great playfulness to an expansive new environment. Traditional patterns reemerged, often infused with American ideas and images, not only in synagogue decorations and objects intended for ritual use but also in the secular world.  (263764)    $36.00

Rosenbach 384. From 1831 to 1847, Bush was Professor of Hebrew and Oriental Literature at New York University. He also began several works, including the Life of Mohammed (1830), A Grammar of the Hebrew Language (1835), an extensive series of commentaries on books of the Old Testament, and the highly controversial Anastasis: or, the doctrine of the resurrection of the Body, rationally and scripturally considered (1844). Mr. Bush was also a committed advocate for the abolishment of slavery. In 1845 Bush converted to the General Church of the New Jerusalem. He quickly became a prominent spokesman of the church, and helped the spread of the church’s magazine. Bush served as editor for the New Church Review and the spiritualist magazine, The Hierophant, and he authored and helped disseminate a large number of Swedenborgian tracts, including the widely read Statement of reasons for believing the doctrines and disclosures of Emanuel Swedenborg (1846) and Mesmer and Swedenborg (1847). Bush continued his promotional work for the New Church until his death, following a protracted and debilitating illness, in 1859. Ironically, Bush is a distant relative of his namesakes.
