About This Item

Title translates to "Yearbook for Jewish Folklore. " An annual publication that followed the periodical series "Mitteilungen zur Jüdischen Volkskunde" by the same editor. "In 1898, Max Grunwald (1871–1953) , a rabbi living in Hamburg and then Vienna, established the Gesellschaft für Jüdische Volkskunde, Mitteilungen (der Gesellschaft) für Jüdische Volkskunde (1898–1929) and Museum für Jüdische Volkskunde, having issued a call to collect materials and a questionnaire in 1896. Grunwald hoped that Jewish Volkskunde would preserve a record of a disappearing way of life and, by demonstrating the beauty of traditions and encouraging their revival, help stem the tide of assimilation; he also hoped that by showing the connectedness of Jews to other peoples and their universal values, Jewish Volkskunde might counteract anthropological characterizations of Jews as an immutable and degenerate race" (YIVO encyclopedia 2010) . Includes photographs, facsimiles, music, and tables, some in black-and-white and some in color. SUBJECT(S) : Jews-Folklore, Jewish social life and customs. Minimal dampstaining. Minimal staining to cover boards. Slight toning. Very good condition. (GER-51-50A) .
