Description Information
   Only edition. 304, [3] pp., 238:151 mm., wide margins, usual age staining, hand on some ff. A good copy bound in contemporary boards, rubbed and split.
   A book of Sabbath sermons arranged according to the Parasha of the week. The text is in German, with occasional words and phrases in Hebrew, except for page 304 which contains a lengthy section all in Hebrew. The book was printed in Vranov at Buchdruckerei Samuel Singer. The book is dedicated to R. Dr. Arthur Viktor, who had been the Rabbi in Hindenburg.

At the bottom of page 304 (which is the last page of text) we find the following statement: Alle äusserungen gegen des Antisemitismus beziehen sich auf die biblische Zeit, aber nichtauf die Völker, unter deren schutz wir leben. [This translates as All expressions about anti-Semitism refer to the Biblical time, but not on the peoples, under whose protection we live.] Note that this was 1936, a rather tenuous time for the Jews of Europe.
