Leopold Löw, a descendent of the Maharal of Prague, was a prominent Hungarian rabbi and founder of Neolog Judaism, a predecessor and Hungarian analog of Conservative Judaism. "Löw early in his career acquired a knowledge of Hungarian, and was the first to introduce it into the synagogue service, his first sermon in that language being printed in 1845. In 1844 he began his literary activity in behalf of the emancipation of the Hungarian Jews, taking the lead in that struggle until its object was attained (1867) . " (Jewish Encyclopedia, 2016) While Löw served as editor, Ben Chananja was a key institution in Löw’s plans to emancipate and modernize Hungarian Jewry.
