Description
   Homilies and lectures on the Pentateuch by R. Judah Leib Lazarov (1875-1939). He was born in Varniai, Kovno Province, and studied in Telz, Mir, Volozhin and Radun. He served as an itinerant preacher in Lithuania before immigrating to America in 5658 [1898]. He was hired as the preacher of New York's Bet Hamidrash Hayyei Adam Anshei Minsk (89 Henry St.) in 5663 [1903] and he became the spiritual leader of Beth Hamidrash Hagadol some time after 5670 [1910]. In addition to being "among the Yiddish preachers of renown", R. Lazarov also founded religious schools and authored many volumes in Yiddish and Hebrew. A lengthy Yiddish work remained in manuscript when he died in 1939 in Patterson, NJ. (Lazarov may be the same individual as R. Louis Lazarow, a rabbi in Brooklyn and a member of the Jewish Ministers' Association of America; though R. Lazarov specifically averred that he was not a rav, i.e., a rabbi who was qualified to make judgments of Jewish law [p. 3], the Jewish Ministers' Association did include preachers among its members.)
