Hoffmann, David

   German biblical and talmudic scholar. He was born in Verbo. He taught at the Hildesheimer Rabbinical Seminary in Berlin, where he later became rector. He was regarded as the supreme halakhic authority of German Orthodox Jewry. In 1918 he was awarded the title 'professor' by the German government. He opposed the Reform movement and attacked the Wellhausen school of biblical criticism. His publications include commentaries on parts of the Pentateuch and an introduction to tannaitic midrashim.
