Manuscript, "Sermon which I have delivered in Ujhely", by R. Yirmiyahu Loewe. Ujhely (Hungary), the 7th of Adar 1862.
Handwritten by the author. The sermon is written in a flowery-style typical of his other writings.
In the sermon, he writes of the attributes of Moshe Rabbeinu who was born and died on the 7th of Adar and of the qualities required for a Jewish leader, while severely criticizing rabbis who do notreproach members their congregations: "The tsaddikim, leaders of their generation, cause many to repent from their sins and teach the ways of G-d. This is contrary to those who only worry about themselves…and not about others. They do not speak to those who sway to set them on the straight path…".
The notable R. Yirmiyahu Loewe (1811-1874), son of the author of Sha'arei Torah, a venerable Torah scholar in Hungary in the times of the Ktav Sofer, served in the rabbinate of Vrbové and Ujhely. Authored Divrei Yirmiyahu on the Rambam, on the Talmud, novellae and homilies. These sermons were not printed in the book of sermons (Satmar, 1934).
8 leaves (16 written pages). 25 cm. High-quality paper, good condition. New binding.
