HIRSCH, Samuel, clergyman, born in Thalfingen, Rhenish Prussia, 8 June, 1815. He received his rabbinical training at Metz, and attended the 'universities of Bonn, Berlin, and Leipsic. He was appointed chief rabbi of Luxemburg in 1843, and in 1866 was called to Philadelphia as rabbi of the Congregation Kenesseth Israel." He has been an active promoter of radical reform among American Jews, and took a chief part in rabbinical conferences. He was an industrious contributor to the early volumes of the "Jewish Times" (1869-'78), but has published nothing in book-form since he came to the United States. His principal works were issued in Germany, among them his " What is Judaism ?" (1838)" a collection of sermons (1841), and " Religious Philosophy of the Jews" (1843).
