Gunzburg, Aaron

Gunzburg, Aaron a Jewish rabbi, was born at Prague in 1812. He received his rabbinical as well as classical education at his native place, and was appointed rabbi of the congregation of Libachowitz, in Bohemia. In 1846 he published, Dogmatisch-historische Beleuchtung des alten Judenthums (Prague), in which he boldly demanded the emancipation of the Jews, and grounded his demand on the words and promises of former Austrian emperors. In consequence of this publication he was obliged to leave his country, and came to America. He was elected rabbi at Baltimore, then at Rochester, N.Y., and last in Boston, where he died, July 19,1873. See Furst, Bibl. Jud. 1:348." (B.P.)
