TREASURES FROM THE RABBI’S LIBRARY – PART 2

March 25th, 2020

Over many years Rabbi Dunner has collected innumerable oddities and rarities spanning every era of Jewish history and literary activity. In the second episode of his series, “Treasures from the Rabbi’s Library”, Rabbi Dunner continues 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, Rabbi Dunner tells the story of how he discovered a single page from a rare incunabulum book from 1490, hidden in the binding of an 18th-century book, and describes it in detail. He also talks about a first-edition volume of Marcheshet, a book written by a forgotten titan of the prewar-Lithuanian rabbinic world, and a pamphlet authored by Professor Chimen Abramsky, the communist son of one of the greatest rabbinic leaders of the twentieth century, Rabbi Yechezkel Abramsky.
