Eduard Baneth, world-famous Talmudic scholar and professor of Talmudic studies in the Rabbinical Seminary of Berlin, is dead here at the age of 75. Professor Baneth was the author of a number of works on Talmudic lore.
Born in Hungary, he learned Bible and Talmud from his father. After attending various rabbinical seminaries he received his doctorate “summa cum laude” from the University of Berlin in 1881. He studied for the rabbinate under Dr. Israel Hildesheimer and for many years was spiritual leader of the old Jewish community of Krotoschin. In 1895 he became professor of Talmud in the Berlin “Lehrenstalt fur die Wissenschaft des Judenthum,” a position he occupied until his death.
