House No. 1 Old Synagogue

Rabbis Koenigsberg

The synagogue was always a meeting place of scholars and rabbis. Malbim, whose real name was Meyer Löbusch Weisser and who was a proven Talmudist, served as rabbi for Russian Jews in the years 1875-1879. During these years he also completed his famous commentary on the Pentateuch under the title “Hatorah we-hamizwah.”
Ezra Munk came to Koenigsberg as a student and received her doctorate in 1890. Three years later, after receiving his rabbinical diploma, he was employed by the congregation of Adass Yisroel. In 1900 he returned to Berlin to work there.
