Detailed Description   

Commentary to Pirke Avot by R. Judah b. Joshua Falk Gruenwald. R. Gruenwald (1845–1920), was born in Brezova pod Bradlom, and served as rabbi of Szobotisz for seven years, of Bonyhad a further seven years, of Surany for two and a half years, and of Szatmar (Satu-Mare) for 22 years. In Szatmar he founded a large yeshivah which achieved a wide reputation. After his death several of his works were published. The most important of them is the responsa Zikhron Yehudah (Budapest-Satoraljaujhely, 1923–28) in two parts. In part 1 (no. 187) he discusses whether one may associate with Zionists and expresses the fear that through Zionism "an opportunity will be given for us to be attacked and to make us disliked by the gentile countries." Another responsum (no. 200) to R. Joseph Hayyim Sonnenfeld in Jerusalem, dated 1913, on whether it is permitted to associate with the Agudat Israel, was removed from the volume and replaced by a responsum on whether it is permitted to handle food and drink on the Day of Atonement in order to give it to children. Others of his published works are: Shevet mi-Yhudah (2 pts., 1922), on the Pentateuch; Hasdei Avot (1925), on the tractate Avot; and She'erit Yehudah (1938), on the Pentateuch.
