Jewish Daily Life in Germany, 1618-1945

This chapter shows how by 1870 Jewish religious practice and attitudes changed from being uniformly religiously traditional to running the gamut from preservation of the essence of the tradition at one end to the almost total abandonment of Jewish religious traditions on the other. Although most German Jews had already traveled a road away from tradition by 1870, almost all of them had grandparents who had been traditional Jews. It is difficult to guess what percentage of German Jews in 1870 still observed the rules of kashrut and the Sabbath.
