Eretz Yisroel – Nachalas Am Yisroel – by Dayan Yechezkel Abramsky, London 1945.

6y Abramsky Eretz_0001Rabbi Yechezkel Abramsky was born in Daskovichy, near Grodno, in 1886.  He studied in the yeshivos of Telz, Mir, Slabodka and Brisk and became a Rabbi who served in various Russian communities including Slutsk and Smolensk.  He fought against the Soviet governments attempts to supress Jewish religion, and in 1931 was allowed to leave the Soviet Union in exchange for some German communist prisoners.

Coming to London, in 1931 he became Rabbi of the Machzike Hadath community in Brick Lane, London.  In 1934 he became Rosh Beth Din of the London Beth Din.  This was a bold move by the United Synagogue – to appoint a black coated Haredi Rabbi to lead the Beth Din, and he steered the Beth Din towards orthodox acceptability.  He held this post for seventeen years.

This book, Eretz Yisroel – the Land of Israel was published in 1945 and printed by the Naroditzky Press in Whitechapel. The purpose of the book is to make clear the principles upon which the Children of Israel occupy their land.
