David Oppenheim: (http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/11724-oppenheim)

Austrian rabbi; born at Leipnik, Moravia, Dec. 18, 1816; died at Vienna Oct. 21, 1876. His father, Baer Oppenheim, having been called as rabbi to Eibenschütz, David frequented his yeshibah and in 1834 went to Prague, where he continued his Talmudic studies and at the same time attended lectures in philosophy at the university. In 1846 he was called to the rabbinate of Jamnitz, Moravia, and in 1859 to that of Nagy-Becskerek, Hungary; the latter position he retained until his death. He was elected to a chair in the rabbinical seminary in Budapest, but he died before the seminary was opened. Oppenheim was a very prolific writer, and he contributed a number of essays of permanent value to the "Allgemeine Zeitung des Judenthums," "Monatsschrift," "Bet ha-Midrash," and other periodicals; his essays on comparative folk-lore are especially valuable. In his religious attitude Oppenheim was conservative; he opposed Leopold Löw's advanced views; and the latter in return attacked him severely in his "Ben Chananja." David Oppenheim's son Joachim, born at Jamnitz 1848, was rabbi at Carlsbad, and since 1871 has been secretary of the Jewish congregation of Brünn.
