   Translations of and commentaries (with text) on the piyyutim for Rosh Ha-Shanah by R. Joseph Breuer (1882–1980), Orthodox rabbi; son of R. Solomon Breuer. R. Breuer was born in Papa, Hungary. In 1906 R. Breuer became a lecturer at the yeshivah in Frankfort, heading it after his father's death (1926). He emigrated to the U.S. in 1939 and became head of K'hal Adath Jeshurun in Washington Heights, N.Y., and of its Yeshivah Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch (1944), modeled after the Orthodox Jewish community of Frankfort. The kehillah which he headed had its own yeshivah, and kashrut supervision. Regarded as one of the spiritual heirs of Hirsch, his maternal grandfather Rabbi Breuer wrote extensively in German and English defending staunch Orthodoxy.

R. Breuer published biblical translations and commentaries on Jeremiah (1914) and Ezekiel (1921); and introductions to R. S. R. Hirsch's Commentary on the Torah (Ger. 2 vols, 1926; Eng. 2 vols, 1948); translations of and commentaries (with text) on the piyyutim for Rosh Ha-Shanah and the Day of Atonement; and wrote Jewish Marriage (Ger. 1923; Eng. 1956). A Jubilee Volume was published in his honor on the occasion of his 80th birthday (Ateret Zevi, Eng. and Heb., 1962, with a bibliography of his writings).
