The Product Collection on our website, in which a number of scientific and continue leading posts va place to Burgenland-Jewish themes, has fortunately again received an addition - thanks to our correspondent from Bnei Brak-Israel, Claudia/Chaya-Bathya with their contribution on the "importer" of Hasidism to Hungary ...

Many of our readers may remember yet well the now sadly from the former Chief Curator Dr.in Felicitas Heimann-Jelinek curated Opening exhibition at the Jewish Museum Vienna in 1993 , Here Teitelbaum lived. A walk through the Jewish Vienna in time and space '.
In the text of the exhibition said: "In Vienna address 1938 sixteen addresses that were under that name [Teitelbaum] cited in the current phone book Wiener 1993/94 the name Teitelbaum can not be found ..."

Our article is now devoted to the first, Especially the first famous bearer of this name, not lived in Vienna, but who, born in 1759, one of the best known and most influential rabbis in Hungary was: Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum of Ujhely, The second famous Teitelbaum, incidentally, was also named Moshe and died at the age of 91 years as Satmar Rebbe April 24, 2006. Pictures of his funeral, see here.

Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum of Ujhely: A great Torah scholar, a Kabbalist, praised by none other than the famous Chatam Sofer, A charismatic phenomenon and a miracle worker.
Sogar der Freiheitskämpfer und Nationalheld Ungarns, Lajos Kossuth, der Führer der ungarischen 1848er Revolution, zollte ihm nicht nur höchste Anerkennung, sondern war, obwohl selbst Christ, überzeugt davon, seinen späteren Aufstieg und seine Errettung nach dem Scheitern des ungarischen Freiheitskampfes dem Segen von Rabbi Mosche zu verdanken!

Selbstverständlich reichen die Verbindungen auch ins Gebiet des heutigen Burgenlands. Denn Markus (Mordechai) Horovitz (1844-1910), gebürtiger Ungar und nachmaliger Rabbiner der jüdischen Hauptgemeinde von Frankfurt am Main, hat an der Jeschiva von Rabbiner Dr. Esriel Hildesheimer in Eisenstadt studiert und ist diesem auch 1869 nach Berlin gefolgt.
Obwohl selbst erst nach Teitelbaums Tod zur Welt gekommen, schildert Horovitz die Eindrücke von Menschen, die Rabbi Mosche noch gekannt haben:

Der Rabbi selbst ist eine hagere, schlanke Gestalt, von sanftem, einnehmenden Wesen; auf seinem kleinen Gesichte sind die deutlichen Spuren innerer, unsäglicher Qual, tiefen, unsäglichen Schmerz von einem frommen, verklärten Blicke in einen Zug von resignierender, erhabener Hingebung gemildert. Jetzt steht er in den Talis [Gebetsmantel] gehüllt, dessen oberer Teil mit schimmernden, silberdurchwirkten Fäden bedeckt ist und so, vom hellen Flammenmeere der vielen, nach heiligen Zahlen berechneten Lämplein in blendendes Gefunkel versetzt, dem blassen, sanften Gesichte des Rabbi einen Ausdruck himmlischen Wesens verleiht.

Our regular guest author and correspondent of Bnei Brak, Israel, Claudia/Chaya-Bathya, Gives us the opportunity to a small Update, Both to our past Blog post about the "Jewish pig" as well as to Shakespears "Merchant of Venice", the 2 days ago at night sent by ORF and by my colleague Christopher in a Tweet was commented.
The ritual murder trial Tisza Eszlári (1882-83) is a classic example of the religiously motivated anti-Semitism in modern times. The acquittal of the Jewish defendants led to massive anti-Jewish agitation and established the modern political anti-Semitism in Hungary. This was triggered by the mysterious disappearance of the fourteen year old Christian peasant girl Eszter Solymosi on 01 April 1,882th

The following sermon (we bring an excerpt) was by Rabbi Emanuel (Menachem) Grünwald, Sopron [Sopron], held for Shabbat Hagadol 1,883th The Shabbat Hagadol ( "big Shabbat") is the Shabbat before Pesach and fell in 1883 to the 14th of Nisan, the same time Erev Pesach was (April 21). The sermon is written in German with Hebrew letters below version of Claudia is the cut-back verbatim.

The sermon (detail)

Experiences we have experienced in our cultured time [speaking of the blood libel of Tisza Eszlar 1882], of which indeed we had no idea, because even in our time made us the reproach of the Jews enemies that we need blood to our ceremonies , Us, which the animal's blood is forbidden even be made such mendacious fabrications for reproach! This reminds me of a famous, very famous poet [Shakespeare], who lived several centuries ago [has]. Meanwhile seals there is also a [Merchant of Venice], whose hero is a Jew:
A Jewish merchant who his debtor for a pound of gold that he borrowed it, and but that it can not pay back later, will draw off a pound of blood. A pound of blood for a pound of gold!

And this seal was not written about only for the learned reader in his lonely room. No, it was written for the people, for the great multitude. A Jew required by his debtor a pound of flesh from his heart for a pound of gold! As? A Jew, the blood of the animal is sacred itself, demands human blood for his gold? As not one of them a preposterous imagination to provide such a seal ?! But no, it was just not poetry, but truth, historical fact that has happened quite in reality centuries ago in a town. Only with the small difference that in real precedent of the Jew not the creditor but the debtor [was]. The Jew was the one who had in his deep distress and anguish of a hard, evil man for a pound of gold prescribe a pound of his heart's blood. Such lies are forged to conflict and discord between the one and the other denomination [sow].

But has our age improved since then? Our time has shown that the old inveterate hatred of Jews has still not ceased to raise suspicions, angry accusation.

To author of the Sermon
