  Gidul Banim by Dr. Moshe Mahl, Lemberg, 1821

© Gross Family Collection, Photographer: Unknown,

This text was prepared by William Gross:

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the subject of medicine progressed rapidly. But still there existed the time honored traditions and formulas that were drawn from experience and tradition. Both science and tradition are represented in the publication of many books regarding medicine and cures of ailments. There are still many items that today would be considered amuletic. This one of those volumes.
It contains a lengthy description, in both Hebrew and Yiddish, by a Medical Doctor of how to raise children. This is some decades before that area of Medicine became a recognized discipline. The book deals with both physical and psychological areas of a child's life.
