The Adass Jisroel community is a neo-Orthodox Jewish community that existed in Berlin from 1869 to the present. The first rabbi of the community was Rabbi Dr. Azriel Hildesheimer. Due to the accelerated assimilation of the Jews of Berlin, the community completely withdrew from the Jewish community of Germany and, about 20 years after its establishment, was also officially recognized as a separate religious community, which maintains the Jewish tradition and general studies. During the two world wars, the community developed and another synagogue, First Jewish High School, Teachers College and Community Hospital was established, and it also employed butchers and bakers to provide fancy kosher food to the community's Jews.
