ABSTRACT
The article discusses the experiences of German rabbis working in Palestine immediately prior to the establishment of the nation of Israel. Rabbis' difficulty in assimilating into Palestinian Jewish culture and establishing Liberal and Reform communities are explained. Sour relations between immigrant German rabbis and their Orthodox counterparts in Palestine are outlined. The author explains that many rabbis immigrated during this period due to the increasingly antisemitic social policies of Germany's Nazi government. Rabbis' ability to find employment in Israel as teachers at religious schools is also explained. The scorn many rabbis faced after emigrating back to Germany is then detailed.
