Mishneh Torah, Rabbi Meir Katzenellenbogen

July 26, 2016

In 1551, Rabbi Meir Katzenellenbogen contacted the owner of the Guistiniani printing press with a proposal for printing Maimonides’s

Bragadini press

Maimonides’s Mishneh Torah

 with a commentary he had written. The printer refused. Disappointed but still determined, the Rabbi then brought the same proposal to Alvise Bragadini, owner of the new and less-established Bragadini press, who agreed to publish it. The phenomenal success of the Mishneh Torah in its new format attracted the attention of Guistiniani, who then hurried to print an identical edition of the book. European Jewish communities declared a boycott against the pirated Guistiniani edition, but despite this, the printer refused to acknowledge his defeat, and instead appealed directly to the Pope to settle the dispute. In order to damage one another’s credibility, the rival printing press owners hurled accusations that the other had, in his edition, inserted heresy against Christianity and the Catholic Church. The Pope’s decision stunned both sides: in the summer of 1553, Pope Julius III ordered all Hebrew books – first and foremost the Talmud – to be brought to Rome’s central square, where they were burned.  This decree was then carried out in other cities across Italy including Venice. National Library of Israel

“… kotel הַכֹּתֶל הַמַּעֲרָבִי   appears only once (Shir Hashirim 2:9). Kotel likely has Aramaic origins, and Klein points out that the Aramaic cognate כתלא kutla is probably a loan word from the Akkadian kutallu – “back side”. It was used frequently in rabbinic Hebrew, but in modern Hebrew it’s generally reserved to describe the western retaining […]

May my website generate revenue on Shabbos?

July 10, 2016

But income from a website is not predicated on fixed revenue—payment is received “per click” whether site traffic takes place on Shabbos or weekday. However, since the income isn’t real schar Shabbos—it’s not generated by the Shabbos observer’s work per se—it is considered mechzei k’schar Shabbos (appearing to be schar Shabbos). As such, we can […]
