Engelmann, Gabriel


ENGELMANN, GABRIEL (d. 1850), Hungarian talmudist and rosh yeshivah. Engelmann was born in Vaguihely. For 15 years he served as dayyan in his native town and later was appointed rabbi and av bet din of Rohonc, Hungary, where he remained until his death. He devoted most of his life to his yeshivah and in the introduction to his Einei Yisrael (pt. 1) relates that he chose for himself the way trodden by most Jewish scholars to devote himself to study and teaching. His contemporaries esteemed him highly and those who gave their approbations to his books included Moses *Sofer. Engelmann's Einei Yisrael is in two parts, the first (Vienna, 1822) on tractates Shevu'ot and Bava Batra, the second (ibid., 1824) on Ḥullin. Some erroneously attributed to him the Gevurat ha-Shem (1838), a commentary on the Passover Haggadah, but its author is Gabriel b. Jacob Katz of Szamotuly.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
