Description Information
   First edition of commentary and translation. 33, [1] pp. octavo 225:152 mm., light age staining. A good copy as issued.
   The famous ethical letter of R. Moses ben Nahman (Nahmanides, Ramban, 1194-1270), Iggeret ha-Ramban, here with Yiddish translation and commentary by R. Isaachar Beer Teichner. Ramban wrote this letter when already in Acco, sending it to his eldest son, Nachman in Castile, instructing him to read it weekly. “Hear, my son, the instruction of your father and don't forsake the teaching of your mother (Mishlei 1:8). Get into the habit of always speaking calmly to everyone. This will prevent you from anger, a serious character flaw which causes people to sin. As our Rabbis said (Nedarim 22a):Whoever flares up in anger is subject to the discipline of Gehinnom as it is says in (Koheles 12:10), ‘Cast out anger from your heart, and [by doing this] remove evil from your flesh.’”

This edition, with several approbations, has the original text on the top of the page, below it the Yiddish translation entitled Patshegan ha-Kasav, and below that R. Isaachar Beer Teichner’s commentary entitled Yad ha-Emunah.
