Feyerliche Einweihung der Synagoge in München den 21. April 1826


Condition: See description

Printing in Hebrew. 23 pages. Small 4to, orig. blue boards, gilt border round sides, contrasting pink endpapers, a.e.g. Munich: C. Wolf, [1826]. The extremely rare printed program for the inauguration of the first public synagogue in Munich on 21 April 1826. The impressive neoclassical building on the Westenriederstrasse was designed and erected by Jean Baptiste Métivier for the small but important Munich community of court Jews and state suppliers founded in 1815. The project was supported by King Max I Joseph of Bavaria, and his successor Ludwig I attended the ceremony with his wife and members of the nobility. Contemporary journals praised the festive character of the event. The inauguration speech was given by Hirsch Aub who became rabbi of the new synagogue through more than four decades. The director of the royal chapel and opera, Joseph Hartmann Stunz, and the royal intendant Johann Nepomuk von Poissl set prayers, psalms and a long hymn to music. The instrumental parts were executed by the King's musicians. The ceremony ended with the Ha-noten teshu'a (a prayer for the welfare of the King and his family) and the evening prayers for Sabbath and Pesach. Much printing in Hebrew. A crisp and large copy on thick paper. In fine condition, from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria.
