This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
Only edition. iv, , 146 pp., 180:129 mm. light age staining. A very good copy bound in the original cloth boards. A very rare volume which is only held in 1 library worldwide.
The title translates as "a year in Ruth's life, a Jewish narration." This volume includes a foreword by Dr. Meier Hildesheimer (1864–1934), German rabbi, son of Azriel (Israel) Hildesheimer. From 1899 he was preacher at the Adass Jisroel Synagogue in Berlin, then became executive director of the rabbinical seminary founded in Berlin by his father. He was representative of Orthodox German Jewry on many national Jewish organizations, including the Centralverein, the Zentralwohlfahrtstelle, ORT, and OSE, and was also active in the Agudat Israel. Coeditor of the festschriften for A. Berliner (1903), S. Carlebach (1910), and D. Hoffmann (1914), Hildesheimer also edited a collection of some of his father's writings (Gesammelte Aufsaetze, 1923).
