Aaron Walden
Aaron Walden (born at Warsaw
Warsaw
about 1835, died 1912[1]) was a Polish Jewish Talmudist, editor, and author. Walden, who was an ardent adherent of Ḥasidism, is known especially for his "Shem ha-Gedolim he-Ḥadash" (Warsaw, 1864), a work of the same nature as Azulai's "Shem ha-Gedolim." Like the latter, it consists of two parts:"Ma'areket Gedolim," being an alphabetical list of the names of authors and rabbis, mostly those that lived after Azulai, but including also many of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries who were omitted by Azulai; and "Ma'areket Sefarim," an alphabetical list of book-titles.Walden himself says in his preface that he took Azulai's "Shem ha-Gedolim" as a model; and it is evident that he refers to Isaac Benjacob's edition of that work. The alphabetical list in the first part is arranged only according to the first names of the persons mentioned
