1921 Frankfurt: Marcus Lehmann Pirkei Avot Spruche Der Vater [judaica Book] For Sale

1921 Frankfurt: Marcus Lehmann Pirkei Avot Spruche Der Vater [judaica Book]

Spruche Der Vater [Pirkei Avot]. With German translation by Rabbi Dr. Marcus Lehmann. Published in Frankfurt am Main 1921. 294 pp. 20 x 14 cm original covers. Fine condition.

Pirkei Avot, which translates to English as Chapters of the Fathers is a compilation of the ethical teachings and maxims of the Rabbis of the Mishnaic period. Because of its contents, it is also called Ethics of the Fathers. The teachings of Pirkei Avot appear in the Mishnaic tractate of Avot, the second-to-last tractate in the order of Nezikin in the Talmud. Pirkei Avot is unique in that it is the only tractate of the Talmud dealing solely with ethical and moral principles; there is little or no halacha found in Pirkei Avot.

Dr. Marcus Lehmann, (Meir; 1831–1890) was a German Orthodox rabbi, scholar, and writer. He was born in Verden, Germany, and studied with R. Israel Hildesheimer in Halberstadt, with R. S. L. Rapoport in Prague, and at Halle. In Prague he was friendly with the writer Solomon Kohn, who may have influenced Dr. Lehmann's future work as a writer. In 1853 an organ was introduced in the synagogue of Mainz and in 1854, when the Orthodox members formed a separate congregation, Lehmann was elected their rabbi and, eventually, one of the leaders and spokesmen of modern German Orthodoxy. In Mainz he founded a religious school which from 1859 was an elementary day school for boys and girls. Dr. Lehmann wrote polemically against Reform and founded the weekly Israelit (1860–1938) to counter the influence of Ludwig Philippson's Reform periodical, Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums; the Israelit became the principal voice of German Orthodoxy. Dr. Lehmann was the main contributor to the Israelit and his many historical novels, including Rabbi Joselmann von Rosheim (translated into English as Tales of Yore, 1947), and short stories were first published in it. His stories were collected in Aus Vergangenheit und Gegenwart (6 vols., 1872–88), and many were translated or adapted into Hebrew, Judeo-Arabic, French, Hungarian, English, and other languages. Lehmann's stories have no great literary merit, but as juvenile literature they have religious and educational value. Of more scholarly importance, though also primarily intended for popular instruction, are his German edition of the Haggadah (1906, 1914, 1926), anonymously revised and enlarged by H. Ehrmann and translated into English (1969), and his Sabbath lectures on Avot, collected as Die Sprueche der Vaeter (in installments, in: Israelit, 1895–1905; 3 vols., 1921/23) in which Lehmann made use of earlier commentators, particularly of Samuel b. Isaac's Midrash Shemu'el, and thus made the commentators accessible to the German reader. Lehmann also published the tractate Berakhot of the Jerusalem Talmud with the commentary of Solomon Sirillo and his own notes, Meir Nativ (1874). Dr. Lehmann translated the Pentateuch (1873, 1913) in the Bible translation initiated by the Orthodox Bible Institute to counter the translation of Zunz and others. As editor of the Israelit, Lehmann inclined increasingly to S. R. Hirsch's intransigent line in Hirsch's differences with R. Hildesheimer, Lehmann's friend and teacher
