KLEEBERG, Minna, poet, born in Elsmhorn, Holstein, Germany, 21 July, 1841; died in New Haven, Connecticut, 31 December, 1878. She was the daughter of a physician named Cohen, and was carefully trained by her father, early showing poetical taste. In 1862 she married Reverend Dr. L. Kleeberg, with whom she came to this country in 1866. Her poems soon attracted attention, and her *efforts to repel anti-Semitic accusations gained general praise. Most of her poems were published in Dr. L. Stein's "Freitag-Abend," at Frankfort-on-the-Main, and they were collected in book-form just before her death (Louisville, Kentucky, 1877).
Editor's Note: " In your notes on Minna
Kleeberg, you note that she married a Rev. Kleeberg. This indicates she married
a Christian, or inter-married, which would have been exceedlingly rare in that
day. Even more rare in her case, given her devotion to her Jewish faith. In
fact, she was married to a Rabbi Kleeberg." -- Annette Winston
