   65-168 pp., 230:155 mm., usual light age staining. A very good copy bound as published.
   This volume is a collection of published essays (dating from 1906 to 1931) and letters. The cover (title page) states that it contains 106 pages, 37 topics, 83 portrayals of individuals and institutions. It is but one part of a three part work - the first section is called Mador HaTorani, the second Mador Bnai Torah (with three parts 1) Agudat Bnai Torah, 2) Bet Vaad la-hakhamin, and 3) Torat ha-bayit. The third section is Mador ha-kelali vehatsibur. So the present volume if from part two of section 2. At the end is an approbation letter from Rabbi Yisrael Porat of Cleveland, Ohio, written in the summer of 1947.

R. Menachem Mendel Porush (1879-1952 ) is also the author of other works, including Me-Roma ad Yerushalayim. His father’s name was Gershon, and the family name was previously Glickman-Porush. He was born in Jerusalem. When he gives an address where to obtain the book, he gives Poruch as the spelling. Includes the signatures of the members of “Agudat Bnai Torah” on the three pages preceding the first page (p.65).
