About Samuel Meyer Ehrenberg

Samuel Meyer Ehrenberg (1773-1853) is the son of Hale Meyer, née Landau and Levi Meyer.

In 1808 he became the "Inspector" of the Samsonschule in Wolfenbuettel. He reformed this school according to the model of the Jacobsohnschule in Seesen/Harz (Germany) with a mixture of religious and secular education, guided by the spirit of enlightenment and Reform Judaism.

He was married to Henriette (Jette) Maas (1781-1845) whose sister was Isaac Rosenzweig's wife. His most renowned pupils were perhaps Leopold Zunz and Isaak Marcus Jost.
