He studied at the Berlin Rabbinical Seminary under his uncle Azriel (Israel) Hildesheimer and at the Universities of Berlin and Koenigsberg. He was district rabbi at Marburg (Hesse) from 1876. He took an active part in the work of the Deutsch-Israelitischer Gemeindebund, the Hilfsverein der deutschen Juden, and the rabbinical associations, both general and Orthodox. Among his publications was a scholarly edition of Targum Sheni on Esther (1876).
