Description
   Homily by Dr. Pinkus Fritz Frankl (18481887), German rabbi and scholar. Born in Uhersky Brod, Moravia, Frankl succeeded Geiger as rabbi of the Berlin community in 1877, and became lecturer in religious philosophy, medieval Hebrew literature, and homiletics at the Hochschule (Lehranstalt) fuer die Wissenschaft des Judentums in 1882. With Graetz he was coeditor of the journal Monatsschrift fuer Geschichte und Wissenschaft des Judentums (MGWJ). His studies were mainly about the Karaites: Karaeische Studien (1876); Beitraege zur Literaturgeschichte der Karaeer (1887); and articles in the Etsch-Gruber encyclopedia, MGWJ, and others. Frankl edited some piyyutim by Eleazar Kallir (in Jubelschrift... L. Zunz, 1884). A collection of his sermons, Fest-und Gelegenheits-Predigten 187787, was published posthumously (1888). In 1884 Frankl was one of the initiators of a "General Assembly of German Rabbis."
