Emanuel Windholz

In this article the author demonstrates the ambivalence of a congregation towards its Rabbi. The sources of this ambivalence are found in the Oedipus complex, the minister representing the father image. The author tries to show how this ambivalence is 'heightened in our times when we seemed to have reached the zenith of a violent effort to shake off the inhibitory requirements of the Hebreo-Christian culture of the west'. He points to the particular position of the Jew, who finds the Rabbi most hateful and oppressive, particularly the Reformed Rabbi, since he disappoints the expectation that he would renounce old taboos and establish social and civil equality with the non-Jewish world. It is evidence of the Jews' aggression against his persecutors turned inward and reprojected against the Rabbi.
