Nehemias Trebitsch was Benet's successor as chief rabbi of Moravia. This chapter discusses Trebitsch's role in the decline of the Moravian chief rabbinate. During Trebitsch's tenure as chief rabbi, many complaints have been raised against him. Trebitsch sought to use his authority to keep reform-minded rabbis out of the Jewish communities under his purview and continuously interfered in the religious, educational, and communal affairs of Moravian Jewry. He also intervened in the Moravian rabbinic elections throughout the 1830s.
