This chapter cites the Jewish Communal Body (Gemeinde) in Poznan, which included both those who would now be described as Orthodox and more progressive and also Reform Jews. It talks about Rabbi Wolf Feilchenfeld, who was appointed rabbi in Poznan and held the position for over forty years as his views were in harmony with the conservative and largely orthodox opinions of his congregants. It also describes Feilchenfeld as a biblical scholar who published a textbook in German on Judaism for Jewish youth. The chapter mentions Rabbi Dr Philipp Bloch, the preacher at the more reformed Brüdergemeinde, who spoke alongside the dedication of the New Synagogue in Poznan. It details how the account of the dedication service of the New Synagogue reveals the difference in approach of the two rabbis.

Keywords:   Jewish Communal Body, Gemeinde, Orthodox Jews, Reform Jews, Rabbi Wolf Feilchenfeld, Rabbi Dr Philipp Bloch
