TREASURES FROM THE RABBI’S LIBRARY – PART 1

March 20th, 2020

Over many years Rabbi Dunner has collected innumerable oddities and rarities spanning every era of Jewish history and literary activity. In this first episode of his series, “Treasures from the Rabbi’s Library”, Rabbi Dunner begins to reveal some of the forgotten pieces hidden away in storage for many years, and he reveals the stories behind them, and the reasons for his interest in them.

In this episode, among other things, he examines a rare pamphlet from 1959 signed by an unusual selection of rabbis rarely found in cooperation with one another; a prayer for the soldiers of WW2 published by a Polish Hasidic rabbi stuck in the United States without his family; a pair of pamphlets concerning a long-forgotten dispute in the haredi community of Antwerp, Belgium; and a series of pamphlets by a rabbi whose son went on to become one of the most famous American comedians of the late twentieth century.
