Oppenheim, David

Oppenheim, David a modern Jewish writer, was born December 18, 1816, at Leipnik, Moravia. He received a thorough rabbinical education, was in 1846 rabbi at Jamnitz, in 1857 at Gross-Beeskerelk, Hungary, and died October 21, 1876, at Vienna. Oppenheim contributed to all the leading Jewish journals and reviews, and caused a great stir among Roman Catholics by keenly criticising, in the Wiener Mitheilunqen, an article on the history of the Jews in Austria, which had appeared in the Freiberger Kirchenlexikon. Oppenheim laid bare the falsehoods and misstatements of that article, and elicited the rejoinder of Ritter von Pawlikowski, who, in his book of a hundred sheets, on the relation between Jews and Christians, devoted no less than seventy pages to refute, or rather to insult, Oppenheim. One of his ancestors was David ben-Abraham Oppenheim (q.v.) (B.P.)
