This chapter looks at the Munkács rabbinate. It covers the period from the earliest recorded rabbi of Munkács through to the end of the nineteenth century, during which period the rabbis were imported. In the twentieth century, the town's rabbinate took on a dynastic character, and the three rabbis who served during the first half of the twentieth century and the heirs to the Munkács legacy after the destruction of European Jewry lie beyond the scope of the chapter. Twentieth-century rabbinical appointments followed different patterns and should be assessed separately. It should be noted, however, that the twentieth-century Munkács rabbinate reflects a confluence of the two influences explored in this study: Hungarian Orthodoxy and Polish/Galician hasidism.

Keywords:   Munkács rabbinate, Munkács, rabbis, European Jewry, Hungarian Orthodoxy, Polish hasidism, Galician hasidism
