A Hebrew annual, published in Warsaw by the "Aḥiasaf" Publication Society. It was founded in 1893, and had immediate success, both literary and financial. Though an almanac in form, its chief merit rests upon the literary portion forming the bulk of the annual.
The "Aḥiasaf" is one of the agents at work in Russia aiming to bring about a revival of the ancient Hebrew tongue and to build up a modern Hebrew literature. Most of the best Hebrew writers, men like "Aḥad-ha-'Am" (A. Ginzberg), Lillienblum, Brainin, and others, are among its regular contributors.
