Jellinek was a "Vienna preacher and scholar.In 1862 Jellinek founded the Beit ha-Midrash Academy where public lectures were delivered by himself, Isaac Hirsch Weiss , and Meir Friedmann . A scholarly periodical, also called Beit ha-Midrash, was published under its auspices. His eldest son, GEORGE J. JELLINEK (1851-1911) , a professor of public law at Basle and Heidelberg, was baptized after Jellinek's death. Jellinek was considered the greatest preacher of his day and some 200 of his sermons were published, some were translated into Hebrew and into other languages. Their most striking characteristic was that, while related to actual problems of the day, they made brilliant and original use of aggadah and Midrash. Personally lenient in matters of ritual, he advocated a moderately liberal line, striving for unity in the community. Thus although he wanted to install an organ in the synagogue "to attract the indifferent, " he took I. N. Mannheimer 's advice and abandoned the idea. He also opposed the omission from the prayer book of references to Zion and prayers for the restoration of sacrifices. Due to the conciliatory attitude of both Jellinek and the leader of the Orthodox group, Solomon Benjamin Spitzer , a split in the community was avoided.
