he served as rabbi of Würzburg, and is therefore often referred to by his position as the Würzburger Rav." (Submitted on September 28, 2017.) 

2. Bamberger, Seligman Baer (Hebrew name, Isaac Dob) (Jewish Encyclopedia). "...His duties as rabbi of a large congregation and district, and as director of a rabbinical school, did not keep him from devoting time to other philanthropic and practical affairs. There was a great lack of Jewish teachers in Bavaria, and, after exerting himself two years in promoting the establishment of a Jewish teachers' training institution, in 1864 he succeeded. He obtained the necessary money, undertook the whole organization of the work, and even provided for the board and lodging of the pupils, who were generally poor. Bamberger worked also in behalf of the proper education of children, and by 1855 he obtained from the Würzburg congregation enough money for a Jewish elementary school, one of the first of its kind in Germany."
