Rabbi Efrayim Deinard (1846-1930) was a bibliography, scholar and fertile author. He wrote in Hebrew, Yiddish and English. He was a book collector and dealer. He fought against Hassidism, Kabbala and Zionism.
Deinard was a colorful, fascinating figure. A visionary and wonderful rejuvenator in the field of the Hebrew book. In his travels around the world he purchased and collected ancient Hebrew books, manuscripts and first prints (some accused him of forgery).
The books were written in his famous style – harsh and astute. He did not spare his opponents nor anyone he thought was deviating from the correct path, beginning with the Zionist and ending with the Hassidim – he admonished all of them with his sharp tongue.
