This chapter examines Rabbi Jehiel Jacob Weinberg's shift from a very public life to a more private one during his final years, which were spent in Montreux, Switzerland. It shows how his failing health and postwar developments have affected him and his intellectual work. Although in the post-war years Weinberg was able to write productively on Talmudic and halakhic themes, it was much more difficult for him to be involved with modern Jewish scholarship. In spite of the logistical difficulties, Weinberg was never totally removed from modern Jewish scholarship, and it was important to him that his views should find favour in the academic community. In addition, the chapter addresses the changes which impacted the Orthodox Jewish world in the aftermath of the war. Finally, the chapter discusses the most important aspects of Weinberg's writings — his postwar responsa.
