            • found:, 14 December 2015 ("Dr Abraham Moritz Silbermann himself was born in Hungary in 1889 and gained ordination in Berlin. He did not pursue a rabbinical career but concentrated on writing, publishing and selling books. In Germany he was joint editor of a Hebrew-German dictionary and a Talmudic dictionary. When he settled in England he became publishing director of Shapiro Vallentine and issued a number of significant works. He personally produced a Children's Haggadah as well as Vallentine's Jewish Encyclopedia. In all these projects he worked with others: the Haggadah was jointly produced with Arthur Saul Super, the son of Rabbi Isaac Jacob Super of Melbourne, and the Encyclopedia with Albert Montefiore Hyamson, a well known Anglo-Jewish historian; so that collaborating with Morris Rosenbaum on the Rashi project fitted into this pattern. Silbermann died in 1939 and the Bible Readers' Union was founded in his memory.")
