Description
   Eduard Kley (Israel; 17891867), German pedagogue and Reform preacher. Orphaned at an early age, Kley studied Talmud at Breslau and then became tutor to the Beer family of Berlin. There he preached in Israel Jacobson's private temple and associated with L. Zunz, Auerbach, and other reformers. In 181718 he and C. S. Ginsburg published in Berlin Die deutsche Synagoge, which proposed a complete liturgy in German. Moving to Hamburg as director of the Jewish free school there, Kley preached in the Hamburg Temple, delivering sermons on Sunday and introducing the organ and a choir. He composed numerous hymns imbued with prevalent Romantic themes. Considered one of the leading preachers of his day, Kley published many collections of his hymns and sermons, which were indebted to F. Schleiermacher and other Protestant preachers. Kley stressed the devotional aspect of religion in his sermons and held that the essence of Judaism was exemplified in the three fundamental principles of Joseph Albo - belief in the existence of G-d, belief in revelation, and belief in divine retribution.
