From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ludwig Venetianer (Hungarian: Venetianer Lajos) (May 19, 1867, Kecskemét - November 25, 1922, Újpest) was a Hungarian rabbi and writer.

Venetianer was born in Kecskemét. He studied at the rabbinical seminary and the University of Budapest, and at the Jewish Theological Seminary (Breslau) and the University of Breslau, 1888-89 (Ph.D. 1890, Budapest). Receiving his diploma as rabbi from the seminary of Budapest in 1892, he officiated as rabbi at Somogy-Csurgó from that year to 1895, holding at the same time the chair of Hungarian and German literatures at the Evangelical Reform Gymnasium of that city. In 1895 he was called to the rabbinate of Lugos, and in the following year to that of Újpest near Budapest. He died in 1922.
