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 . He was hired as the preacher of New York's Bet Hamidrash Hayyei Adam Anshei Minsk (89 Henry St.) in 5663  and he became the spiritual leader of Beth Hamidrash Hagadol some time after 5670 . 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.)
