About Samuel Bäck (ב"ק - בני קדושים)

Samuel Baeck (Hebrew: שמואל בק‎, born Kromau, Moravia, April 1, 1834 – May

16, 1912) was a German rabbi and father of Leo Baeck.

His father, Nathan Baeck, was rabbi in Kromau; his grandfather, Abraham,

rabbi in Holitsch, Hungary. Baeck married Eva Placzek (1840-1926), the

daughter of Abraham Placzek, chief rabbi of Moravia.

After being educated in the public schools of Kromau and at the Talmudic

schools of Nikolsburg (Moravia) - now Mikulov - and Pressburg, Baeck studied

at the University of Vienna, continuing his Talmudic studies under R.

Horwitz. After receiving his diploma as rabbi from the chief rabbi Placzek

of Boskovice, he was appointed rabbi in Böhmisch Leipa, and was in 1864

called as rabbi to the celebrated community of Lissa, province of Posen. He

was a member of the municipal school committee and of the "Waisenrat",

instructor in the Jewish religion at the gymnasium, and a delegate to the

Deutsch-Israelitischen Gemeindebund. He was the first to advocate with

success the introduction of the teaching of the Jewish religion in the

colleges of Prussia.
