The Legacy of German Jewry

This chapter discusses the role of Gabriel Riesser in the success of the German Jews in achieving full civil emancipation. In 1860, Riesser became the first German Jew who retained his membership in the Jewish community to be selected as judge. Riesser waged his battle for freedom and justice not exclusively for the German Jews, but for all the citizens of his fatherland and for humanity as a whole. Another achievement of Riesser is the retaining of the term Jew to refer to people of Jewish belief in Germany.
