Only edition. 127 pp., quarto, 228:149 mm. Yudlov 3541; Yaari 2679 A calendar of Jewish holidays (p.1-49), personal memoirs pages (p. 50-66), and the haggadah with commentary. R. Hayyim Hirschensohn (1857-1935) was born in Safed. His father was R. Yaakov Mordechai Hirschensohn, who had emigrated to Eretz Israel from Pinsk in 1848. In 1864, the family moved to Jerusalem. The young Hayyim Hirschensohn worked closely with Eliezer Ben-Yehuda to revive spoken Hebrew and helped found the Safah Berurah ("Plain Language") society in Jerusalem. He and his wife Chava published works and journals both in Hebrew and Yiddish. In 1904, he was hired as the Chief Rabbi of Hoboken, New Jersey, a post that included "Hoboken, West Hoboken, Jersey City Heights, Union Hill and the Environs" (from title page of Malki Ba-Kodesh, vol. 2; Hoboken, 1921) in its jurisdiction. He remained in Hoboken until his death in 1935. Rabbi Hirschensohn wrote on many subjects, including the relationship between Judaism and democracy, the status of women, and conflicts between traditional Judaism and modern scholarship and science. He is probably best known for Malki Ba-Kodesh, a 6-volume work he published between 1919 and 1928, in which he explores the halakhot (Jewish laws) that might govern a future Jewish state. Hirschensohn's daughter Tamar married Rabbi David de Sola Pool and his other daughter, Tehilla Lichtenstein headed the Jewish Science movement.
