Memorial volume for R. Joseph Carlebach (1882–1942), rabbi and educator, son of R. Solomon Carlebach (1845–1919) and rabbi of Luebeck for nearly 50 years. After a period of teaching, he opened a Hebrew high school in German-occupied Kovno, Lithuania, during World War I. He later became headmaster of the Talmud Torah high school at Hamburg and rabbi of Luebeck (1919–22), Altona (1927–37), and ultimately of Hamburg. R. Carlebach published commentaries on the Song of Songs, the Prophets (1932), and Ecclesiastes (1936), and his thesis on R. Levi b. Gershom as a mathematician, besides many articles in German-Jewish periodicals. He perished in the Holocaust, in a concentration camp near Riga, Latvia.
