In the 1880s, a so-called Eternal Jewish Calendar was widely circulated around the Malin, Berdichev, and Kiev Jewish communities. This calendar was calculated and compiled by Nukhim Yankelevich Vaisblat, who was born in the middle of the 19th century – between 1850 and 1860 – in the town of Malin, in the Kiev region. Malin then was a typical Jewish town. The first education he received was in the cheder of Malin, and later he finished his studies at a school for rabbis, probably in Kiev. At a young age he became the rabbi of Malin’s Jewish community and became famous for his knowledge and and even his quick wit.
The Berdichev printing house published it in 1887.
