Al Tehi Kaabotheka

Al tehi ka-abotheka (ִאל תהי כאבותי), i.e. Be not like thy Fathers, is the title of a satirical epistle written by Profiat Duran (q.v.), and published some years ago by rabbi Wise of Cincinnati, in an English translation, in his paper, the Israelite. The ponmpous heading given to the translation, by the Cincinnati rabbi — "A Relic of Great Significance," respectfully inscribed "to religion peddlers" — sufficiently indicates the animus of the publication, and is a poor apology for this effort to bring before modern readers a mediaeval epistle full of invectives against Christianity. (B. P.)
