Prins, Liepman Philip


PRINS, LIEPMAN PHILIP (Eliezer Liepman ; 1835–1915), merchant and scholar of Arnhem, the Netherlands. Until 1876 Prins was privately tutored, after which time he continued his studies in Amsterdam and moved to Frankfurt in 1887.

He was the publisher of the previously unedited part of the work by David Abudarham, Tashlum-Abudraham, for *Mekizei Nirdamim (1900). He also wrote an introduction to a second edition of Seder Berakhot by Michael Moravsky. His own writings include annotations on the tractate Ḥullin (204b) and on the siddur (in Oẓar ha-Tefillot, 1915) as well as numerous articles in Jewish weeklies and journals.

In recent years more details became known about him as one of his grandchildren, Els Bendheim, initiated the publication of his correspondence, the marginal notes he made in his books, and an anthology of his work in Dutch.

His library consisting of 6,000 books was moved to Jerusalem (and opened to the public in 1930); it is still kept as such at Lipschuetz Teachers' College (Jerusalem).

Learn more about citation styles

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.
