||Liturgical hymn for the Yom Kippur service at the Neue Synagogue in Breslau.
The "Neue Synagoge", also the liberal synagogue, served the liberal (assimilated) Jew and was established in 1872 by the R. Gedalja Tiktin (1843-1886), an Orthodox, and R. R. Manuel Joel, a liberal Jew. They commissioned the Jewish architect Edwin Oppler, who designed the largest and most magnificent synagogue of Germany. It was built in Byzantine Roman style, crowned by a 60 m. high dome, surrounded by four smaller ones. In the notorious crystal night in November 1938 this beautiful architectural gem was torched and totally destroyed.
