   Reprint of the Kol-Nidre-Sermon given by Rabbi Dr. Raphael Breuer on October 1, 1930 on the subject of the Shehitah question. R. Raphael Breuer (18811932), district rabbi at Aschaffenburg, Bavaria; son of R. Solomon Breuer. His candidacy for the succession to his father's office led to a bitter struggle in the Frankfort congregation in which the majority, the Israelische Religionsgesellschaft (under R. Jacob Rosenheim's leadership), opposed the narrow Orthodoxy with which the name of Breuer had become associated. R. Raphael Breuer's published works include translations and commentaries (in German) on the Five Scrolls (190812; 1924); on the Former Prophets (2 vols., 191522); and on Ezra and Nehemiah (2 vols., 193338). An appreciation of the ideas of his grandfather R. S. R. Hirsch was contained in R. Breuer's Unter seinem Banner (1908). His strong anti-Zionist views were aired in Nationaljudenthum ein Wahnjudenthum (1903) and other polemics.
