Inhaltsangabe: This dictionary contains Hebrew and English names together with an analysis of their meanings and origins. Included among the more than 11,000 entries are a large number of biblical names suitable for use today, plus practically every Hebrew first name currently in use in Israel. Popular talmudic names and Yiddish names are also included. The correct spelling of Hebrew and Yiddish names is indicated in Hebrew script immediately following each main entry. Also features a comprehensive Hebrew Name Vocabulary, in which one will find Hebrew (and Yiddish) names grouped according to meaning and transliterated into English.
Über den Autor: ALFRED J. KOLATCH, a graduate of the Teachers Institute of Yeshiva University and its College of Liberal Arts, was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, which subsequently awarded him the Doctor of Divinity degree, honoris causa. From 1941 to 1948 he served as rabbi of congregations in Columbia, South Carolina, and Kew Gardens, New York, and as a chaplain in the United States Army. In 1948 he founded Jonathan David Publishers, of which he has since been president and editor-in-chief.
Rabbi Kolatch has authored numerous books, the most popular of which are Great Jewish Quotations, How to Live a Jewish Life, What Jews Say About God, This Is the Torah, and the best-selling Jewish Book of Why and its sequel, The Second Jewish Book of Why. Several of his works deal with nomenclature, about which he is an acknowledged authority. The New Name Dictionary and The Complete Dictionary of English and Hebrew First Names are his most recent works on the subject. Other books by the author include Our Religion: The Torah, The Jewish Heritage Quiz Book, The Jewish Mourner's Book of Why, Who's Who in the Talmud, and The Family Seder.
In addition to his scholarly work, Rabbi Kolatch is interested in the work of the military chaplaincy and has served as president of the Association of Jewish Chaplains of the Armed Forces and as vice-president of the interdenominational Military Chaplains Association of the United States.
