    Biography
    Michael Sachs was born on September 3, 1808, in Głogów, Poland. He studied in Germany and earned his doctorate at the University of Berlin in 1836. He was appointed as a rabbi in Prague, Austo-Hungary, that same year. Rabbi Sachs took a position as assistant rabbi in Berlin in 1844. Sachs was modern in some ways, integrating scholarship and preaching, using a choir during services, and giving sermons in German, but he was opposed to Reform Judaism. He contributed to a German translation of the Bible and completed a poetic German-language translation of the machzor that became largely popular. He died on January 31, 1864, in Berlin, Germany.
