Description Information
   Inaugural issue. 16 pp., 220:144 mm., light age staining. A very good copy bound in the original wrappers.
   This is the first issue of an English language journal whose aim was "to speak to and perhaps for orthodox Jewry." The name Yeshurun was chosen because that was the name of a publication founded by R. Samson Raphael Hirsch and "the choice of [the]name is meany to imply that like Jeschurun we intend to present Torah ideas in the language of the country and hope to be successful in doing it." This journal is quite rare as WorldCat lists only one library worldwide that holds this title.

R. Alter Shlomo Halpern was the longtime rosh yeshiva of Yeshivat Torat Emet in London, England and the author of many pamphlets and books (some under the nom de plume R. Salomon Alter Halpern) on topics of contemporary Orthodoxy and editions of the Rashba, Ritva and Tosafot Yeshanim.
