The personal Gemara of the great Zionist leader Ze'ev Jabotinsky Sold at Auction

Sold for  3,050

Here is an important discovery that shows that Jabotinsky was interested and studied Babylonian Talmud. 

On the title page, Ze'ev Jabotinsky signed his name and between the book's sheets there are pencil marks. 

Jabotinsky studied in general schools and in his youth he hardly knew anything about Judaism. 

But later he became acquainted with Judaism, visited many Jewish communities, and became familiar with the traditional Jewish way of life. 

In addition to his high level knowledge of Hebrew, Jabotinsky was well versed in the Bible, and in his speeches and essays he quoted much of the Bible and his world views and many ideas he drew from the Bible.
