Description
   Commentary on the weekly portion of Genesis and a responsum on the direction one is to face during prayer by R. Moses Mordecai Israel b. Gedalyahu Rivkind (d. >1941). He was born in Daugavpils where his father was a shohet. R. Rivkind studied under R Meir Simhah Ha-Kohen in Bialystock and ordained by R. Yehiel Mechel Wolfson in 1888. He served in many rabbinical positions - all ended in disagreement when he sought to express his authority as rabbi.
