Description
   Haggadah with commentary Nagid vaNaphik by R. Benjamin Judah Gittelsohn (1851-1932), rabbi of Cleveland, Ohio. R. Gittelsohn, a descendant of R. Isaiah Halevi Horowitz, was born in Uzventis, Kovno Province, in 1851 (not 1853, as in some sources). His father died when he was eight years old, and he thereafter wandered from town to town studying in various yeshivot. At the age of fourteen he began his studies at a yeshiva in Slobodka with R. Jacob Joseph. In 5628 [1868] he entered the yeshiva of Slonim. After receiving rabbinic ordination from leading rabbis, he was appointed the rabbi of Alanta in 5638 [1878] and Troskunai in 5643 [1883]. In 5650 [1890] he acceded to the request of those acquainted with him and he immigrated to Cleveland. He served there as the rabbi of Shaare Torah. Almost a decade after he left for America, R. Gittelsohn complained that he still enjoyed neither peace nor respite. For many years he was Cleveland's sole productive rabbinic scholar.
