About Rabbi Abraham Neuda

Abraham Neuda (born at Loštice, Moravia, in 1812; died there February 22, 1854) was an Austrian rabbi. He was the son of Rabbi Aaron Neuda of Loštice, and the nephew of Rabbi Jacob Neuda of Lomnitz (Lomnice), Moravia. In 1830 he entered the Talmudic school at Mikulov, at whose head was Landesrabbiner Nehemiah Trebitsch. While he was at Mikulov his father died (1834), and the community of Loštice elected Abraham as his successor. Against this election, in accordance with a privilege vested in the district rabbi by law, Nehemiah Trebitsch interposed a veto. This action gave rise to legal proceedings, which were pressed by both parties for six years, but which finally terminated in favor of Neuda, after he had passed an examination. He married the author Fanny Schmiedl. Neuda wrote the following works: "Eine Auswahl Gottesdienstlicher Vorträge, Gehalten in der Synagoge zu Loschitz" (Vienna, 1845); "Die Nächstenliebe im Lichte der Gotteslehre," sermon preached on the first day of Passover, 1847 (ib. 1847); "Namen der Talmudisten" (in "Orient, Lit." 1845, Nos. 9 et seq.). He left in manuscript: "Die Namen der Farben in Bibel und Talmud"; "Versuch einer Psychologie nach Anschauung des Talmuds"; and "Eine Gesch. der Juden in Mähren," extracts from which appeared in "Neuzeit" (Vienna, 1867).
