Adass Jisroel (Berlin, Germany)
Found in 2 Collections and/or Records:
The bulk of the collection consists of letters to Esriel Hildesheimer\ and others from various individuals, mostly rabbis in Germany, Austria-Hungary, Palestine, Eastern Europe, and the United States, and institutions, including Akiba Lehren, David Neimann, Simcha Bunem Sofer, Yeshiva Etz-Hayyim, Adolf Jellinek, and the Oesterreichisch- Ungarisch- Israelitische Gemeinde, Jerusalem. Approximately one-half of the correspondence is transcribed.
This collection documents the lives of members of the Hildesheimer and Halberstadt (later Halden) families, including the Orthodox rabbi Israel Hildesheimer. It largely consists of official documents of family members, but also holds manuscripts, correspondence, Haggadahs, and a cookbook. Of particular interest may be the detailed manuscripts by family members concerning a visit to Palestine in 1933 and childhood memories of life in a rabbinical family in Eisenstadt.
