Paragraph 1    Title:Gebete fuer den oeffentlichen Gottesdienst der Tempelgemeinde Ahawath Chesed, geordnet von Dr. A[braham] Huebsch, Rabbiner derselben
   Dr. Abraham Huebsch (1830–1884), rabbi and Orientalist. Huebsch was born in the Hungarian town of Lipto-Szentmiklos. Upon receiving his rabbinical diploma in 1854, he became rabbi of the small Orthodox congregation of Miawa. In 1857 he went to the University of Prague to study philosophy, receiving his doctoral degree in 1861, the same year that he accepted the rabbinate of the Neu-Synagogue in Prague. In 1866 Huebsch was invited to become head of Congregation Ahawath Chesed in New York, where he served for the remainder of his life. His interest in liturgy led him to introduce a moderate reformed ritual and to compose a new prayer book, later adopted by many other congregations. As a scholar, Huebsch's main work was his edition of the Syriac Peshitta on the Five Scrolls, Hamesh Megillot im Targum Suri (1866), translated as Fuenf Megilloth nebst dem Syrischen Thargum (1866). He also published a collection of his sermons, Dein Licht und deine Wahrheit (1868), and a book of Arabic aphorisms, Gems of the Orient (1887).
