English translation, kindly submitted by a Kitchener Descendant

Jewish Community of Schweinfurt

Subject:

We feel obliged, regarding Mr Bernhard Schwarzeneberger, to state the following to [from?] our board: Mr Bernhard Schwarzenberger, who currently holds the honor of Vice President [II ?] in our community, has for many years been a proven and honored member of our local authority. Whenever something needed to be done in our synagogue and in the Jewish community when men were needed, one could always be certain it would get done if you went to him. The congregation especially thanks him for the fact that he has been ready to serve for many decades. Whether it was to act as cantor on weekdays, Sabbaths, or holidays, Mr Schwarzenberger always gladly offered to help.  On the High Holidays he regularly participated to the complete satisfaction of the community. In the presentation of prayers as well as the singing of the Torah section his natural musicality is of great benefit to him. Also in the synagogue choir which plays a significant role in the beautification of the service, Mr Schwarzenberger is a true and beloved member.  The members of our congregation have always been happy to listen to his ancient traditional melodies and prayers.

Schweinfurt, March 24, 1939
