Title translates roughly to "The Consecrated Day in its Threefold Meaning: A Sermon Delivered by the Rabbis of the City on July 7, 1842 in the New Israelite Temple. "Gotthold (1784-1862) was a German Jewish rabbi, politician, and bible translator. He was the first Jew to translate the complete Old Testament into High German, following in the footsteps of Moses Mendelssohn. He also preached at the Hamburg Temple. This sermon follows 2 months after the Great fire of Hamburg, which began early on May 5, 1842, in Deichstrasse and burned until the morning of May 8, destroying about one third of the buildings in the Altstadt. It killed 51 people and destroyed 1, 700 residences and several important public buildings, necessitating major civic rebuilding and prompting infrastructure improvements. The heavy demand on insurance companies led to the establishment of reinsurance. The Neuen Israelitischen Tempel (aka, the Hamburg Temple) was the first permanent Reform synagogue and the first ever to have a Reform prayer rite. It operated in Hamburg (Germany) from 1818 to 1938 (Wikipedia) . SUBJECTS: Jewish sermons -- Germany. OCLC lists 2 copies worldwide (Hamburg Library, State Archives of Freien and Hansestadt) . Very good condition. Extremely Rare. (GER-55-3), Ger10
