New Book Announcement
By Eliezer Brodt
הציץ ונפגע, אנטומיה של מחלוקת חסידית, דוד אסף, ידיעות ספרים ואוניברסיטת חיפה, 541 עמודים.
Just released, from University of HaIfa and Yedioth Achronoth, Hazitz Unifgah (הציץ ונפגע), the much-anticipated work by Professor David Assaf on the Sanz Sadigura controversy (see here about this book, on Prof. Assaf's extremely interesting blog). This controversy began in 1869 and continued for a while afterward. This is the first work to document at great length (541 pp.) all the details of this controversy based on many rare documents and the like. It continues in the path of Assaf’s previous works and will be sure to cause a great stir and much interest, as did his prior books.
A complete bibliography of the sources that were used for writing this book was printed in the recent volume of Mechkarei Yerushalayim 23 (2011) pp. 407-481. This was not included in this new work. If you are interested in a table of contents of this work email me at eliezerbrodt @ gmail . com.
