By: Isidore Singer
German rabbi; born March 1, 1866, at Loslau, Upper Silesia. He studied at the University of Breslau from 1884 to 1887 (Ph.D.), pursuing at the same time his rabbinical studies at the Jewish Theological Seminary. In 1890 he was called as district rabbi to Weilburg-on-the-Lahn; and two years later he took charge of the district rabbinate of Hildesheim, which position he still (1904) occupies.
