Description
   Poetry by Naphtali Herz Wessely (Hartwig; 1725–1805), an important member of the German Haskalah. Wessely's ancestors had fled Poland during the Chmielnicki pogroms and settled in Wesel on the Rhine from where the family took its name. Born in Hamburg, Wessely spent his childhood in Copenhagen where his father was a purveyor to the king of Denmark. He received his religious education at the yeshivah of R. Jonathan Eybeschuetz, who influenced him greatly, and read literature and scientific works in a number of European languages, Associated with the Feitel Bank, Wessely's business affairs took him to Amsterdam and Berlin. In Berlin he met Moses Mendelssohn and contributed a commentary on Leviticus (Berlin, 1782) to the Biur.
