About Rabbi Dr. Jacob Salmon Raisin

The Haskalah movement in Russia,  By Rabbi Dr. Jacob Salmon Raisin

Dedication to his father (Page 5.)

To Aaron S. Raisin

Your name, dear father, will not be found in the following pages, for, like "the waters of the Siloam that run softly," you ever preferred to pursue your useful course in unassuming silence.

Yet, as it is your life, devoted entirely to meditating, learning and teaching, that inspired me in my effort, I dedicate this book to you; and I am happy to know that I thus not only dedicate it to one of the noblest of Maskilim, but at the same time offer you some slight token of the esteem and affection felt for you by,

Your Son, Jacob S. Raisin
