   Sir Hermann Gollancz (18521930), rabbi and teacher. Gollancz was born in Bremen and was the brother of Sir Israel Gollancz. He officiated at the Bayswater Synagogue (18921923) and taught Hebrew at University College, London (190224). In 1897, when he received the rabbinic diploma on the Continent from three Galician rabbis, he became the center of a controversy over whether the rabbinic title should be a recognized qualification for the Anglo-Jewish clergy with the ultimate result that the title was so recognized. R. Gollancz published a number of critical editions and translations from Hebrew, Aramaic, and Syriac, including a Hebrew and English edition of Sefer Mafte'ah Shelomo (1914) and also of R. Joseph Kimhi's Shekel ha-Kodesh (1919). Hermann was the first English rabbi to receive a knighthood (1923).
