Copenhagen: Robertske Officin 1833
German-born Abraham Alexander Wolff (1801-91) was considered a child prodigy in his native Darmstadt. He studied Talmud under Rabbi Abraham Bing of Würzburg, doyen of German rabbis, and in 1821 received a Ph.D. from the University of Giessen. Wolff assumed the office of Chief Rabbi of Denmark in 1829. Following the destruction of Copenhagen’s synagogue in 1795, the community splintered into several congregations. With Wolff’s arrival in Copenhagen the new rabbi galvanized the community to erect a new edifice, which was dedicated on April 12, 1833.
