    Biography HERXHEIMER, SALOMON (1801 - 1884), German rabbi. Born in Dotzheim, Herxheimer attended the yeshivah of R. Herz Scheyer in Mainz, studied secular subjects under Michael Creizenach, and later graduated from the University of Goettingen. While teaching in Eschwege, he wrote Yesodei ha-Torah (1831), a popular work on religious and moral instruction, which was translated into English and reached 36 editions by 1916. Later he became the rabbi of Anhalt-Bernburg. At the rabbinical conferences of the 1840s Herxheimer, an exponent of moderate Reform, especially supported the idea of confirmation (see Bar Mitzvah). His singular achievement was the publication of a translation of the Bible into German with commentary (1841-48), a third edition of which appeared in 1863. He also published a book on Hebrew grammar (1834) and an edition of his sermons (1838, 1857).
