Let's start the new year 2017 appropriately with Eliezer Steinbarg's Alef-Beys / Aleph-Beis / Alphabet. Have you ever been to the Chernivtsi Museum of Bukovinian Jewish History and Culture? One unique artefact in the Museum’s collection is a copy of Eliezer Steinbarg’s Alef-Beys - Aleph-Beis - Alphabet. At the antiquarian bookseller's you'll get it between $ 500.00 - $ 2,000.00, at our Ehpes Blog it's free:

The book was published in Chernivtsi in 1921 by the publishing house 'Kultur'. Their goal was to promote Yiddish language among the Germanophone Jewish community of Bukovina. Teacher, storyteller and social activist, Eliezer Steinbarg created a handbook for children from the society 'Shulferain', which he organized in Czernowitz. The artists Arthur Kolnik, Josef Lerner and Rubin Zelikovici illustrated the Alphabet book.

If you read Yiddish enjoy the content, if not - like me - enjoy the generously illustrated edition!
