In the year 1897, Isaac Rosenberg accepted the pulpit of a synagogue in the East German town of Thorn. He was one of a new class of rabbis at the turn of the century known as “Rabbiner Doktor” – with Ph.D. degrees as well as rabbinical ordination. Well ensconced as a leader in his community, Rabbi Rosenberg delivered passionate sermons to his congregants on the occasion of Jewish festivals – sermons that uplifted rather than scolded, that inspired a community of Jews whose religious observance was waning with love for their families and pride in Judaism’s contributions to the world.
