This chapter describes the post-partition Polish lands, in which several prayer houses and synagogues strove for the modernization of religious life and introduced some innovations and moderate liturgical reforms. It talks about different innovations that changed over time and ranged from simply putting more emphasis on aesthetics, order, and decorum to more radical yet still limited changes, such as the introduction of a regular modern sermon delivered in German or Polish by an academically educated preacher. It also cites Majer Balaban’s book on the progressive synagogue in Lwów, which became an object of academic investigation by Jewish Polish historians. The chapter examines the characteristics of the pre-war research that focused on the histories of particular progressive circles and the activities of progressive leaders. It discusses the two dominant narratives that include the biographies of religious leaders and the histories of particular synagogues.
