Sat, 30. Jan 2021, 19:30-21:00 150 years Aron Tänzer. A birthday evening Online event (in English) in cooperation with the City Archive Hohenems, the City of Göppingen, the Jewish Museum Merano and the Jewish Community Bratislava.

150 years ago, Aron Tänzer was born in former Hungarian Pressburg, today’s Bratislava. His studies led him via Berlin and Bern finally with his wife Rosa to Hohenems in 1896. Tänzer, who saw himself as a pioneer of Jewish reform, devoted himself to research on Jewish and regional history as well as to enlightening lectures for the urban public. As rabbi, he set up what is now the city archive in Hohenems. His monumental work on the history of the Jews in Hohenems was published as early as 1905 in Merano, the next station in his rabbinical career. Finally, in 1907, he moved to Göppingen in Württemberg, where he worked for thirty years, interrupted only by his service as a field rabbi in World War I. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his birth, the Jewish Museum Hohenems, in cooperation with the Hohenems Municipal Archives, is organizing a festive evening that will give us a chance to include his stations in life and his descendants in the United States via Zoom and Youtube. Greetings, films, and lectures from Bratislava, Hohenems, Meran, Göppingen, and New Jersey will form a program that has not been possible at the museum before. The international event will be held in English.
