9 Elul in History

According to the feature "This Day in History" at, on 9 Elul:
Ramban arrived in Jerusalem, 1267, and reestablished the Jewish community here, soon after his arrival. (The community enjoyed continuous existence until 1948. It was reestablished in 1967.)
Anyone with a standard set of Talmud or the standard Pentateuch with multiple commentaries has works of the Ramban, Rabbi Moshe ben Nachman (Nachmandes) on his bookshelf. If the editions on your bookshelf have clear print instead of blurry print, they were probably newly edited and printed in Israel.
