Description
   Polemical attack on Meyer Israel Bresselau's Herev Nokemet Nekam-Berit (Dessau 1819). In 1818, Bresselau together with I. S. Fraenkel edited and adapted a prayer book for the Hamburg Reform Temple under the title Seder ha-Avodah. The Orthodox Rabbis responded with Elleh Divrei ha-Berit (Altona, 1819), a pamphlet which collated the views of the greatest Orthodox rabbis of Western Europe against Reform Judaism and its innovations. in response Bresselau published anonymously his polemic work Herev Nokemet Nekam-Berit, a rhymed work written in a satirical biblical style, is remarkable in its witty take-off on the Orthodox rabbis who opposed the reforms in the Hamburg Reform synagogue (temple). To counteract Bresselau's polemic work M. L. Reinitz published Lahat ha-Herev ha-Mithappekhet (1820).
