Rabbi Samson Refael Hirsch's Response to Rabbi Yitzchak Dov Bamberger of Wurzburg, 1877

Lot 41: Rabbi Samson Refael Hirsch's Response to Rabbi Yitzchak Dov Bamberger of Wurzburg, 1877

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: These two personalities had differing opinions regarding the Orthodox community's separation from the general Jewish community, which did not adhere to Torah principles. Rabbi Samson Refael Hirsch demanded full separation from the general community, and this is what he did in Frankfurt. Tens of communities followed his lead. In contrast, Rabbi Bamberger of Wurzburg claimed that there was no need for separation. He believed that Orthodox Jews should fight from within the community to preserve Torah observance. The large majority of Orthodox communities in Ashkenaz followed Rav Hirsch's opinion. The disciples of the Chatam Sofer in Hungary were strong supporters of his. A polemic developed around this question. Rabbi Hirsch used his writing talents to compose a brilliant defense of his position. Rabbi Bamberger also answered in print. Rabbi Bamberger was a senior Rabbi in Germany, who passed away about a year after this polemic. This is Rabbi Hirsch's lengthy, printed letter, dated the 13th of May, 1877. It is addressed to Rabbi Bamberger. It was a rebuttal to the public letter published by Rabbi Bamberger against Rabbi Hirsch's position. German. Many quotes in Hebrew. Intact. Opens with page 3 and ends on page 62. Apparently only missing the printed paper jacket. Light blemishes to the last two pages, missing solitary words. 22 cm. Fine condition. Stamp of Dr. Yosef Chazanowitch in Hebrew and German. Very rare. [Along with a historic depiction of the great impression made by this 'open response'. Taken from Rabbi Eliyahu Meir Klugman's "Vayehi B'Yeshuren Melech" (printed at the end of Rabbi Hirsch's, "Shemesh Marpeh" responsa)].
