The author, Samuel Abraham Poznanski (1864 - 1921) was a Polish Reform rabbi and scholar, known for his studies of Karaism and the Hebrew calendar. He graduated from the gymnasium of Warsaw and studied at Warsaw University and the Hochschule für die Wissenschaft des Judenthums in Berlin. He was appointed a member of the Warsaw council of rabbis by a committee of the Great Synagogue just before his death. Orthodox Jews opposed his appointment and even resorted to street demonstrations.
