A Shabbat Hagadol Sermon, given by R. Haim Brody in The Altneuschul: Prague's Old New Synagogue

Tucked in a Prague edition of the Talmud, tractate Zebachim, I found the notes of Chief Rabbi of Prague Haim Brody, which he wrote in preparation for his Shabbat Hagadol Derasha at the Altneuschul: Prague's Old New Synagogue in the year 1917. A look back in to history to the style and surprising depth of the lectures given to the general population in this community.
Brody was the rabbi of the congregation of NĂ¡chod, Bohemia and chief rabbi of Prague (both cities then part of Austria-Hungary), before moving to Palestine. In Czechoslovakia, he was the leader of the Mizrachi movement.
