Francis Joseph became a symbol of continuity with the past and of a prosperous era. Because of the social changes that had occurred in the lives of Jews, Francis Joseph was compared even in his lifetime to Moses, and this became a recurrent topos in the speeches of rabbis in connection with the death and succession, showing parallels to the liberation from Egyptian bonds. The editor-in-chief of Egyenlőség, Lajos Szabolcsi, who followed his father in that post, used comparisons to Moses and Joshua in writing on the connection between Francis Joseph and the heir to the throne Karl Franz Joseph. Just as Moses could not enter Canaan after the years of wandering in the wilderness, so Francis Joseph could not see the new world. Mourning for the great ruler who “liberated” the Jewish denomination and attention paid to the symbolic gestures of the new ruler were present in parallel in the press.In Jewish interpretations between the two world wars the period of FrancisJoseph became a lost golden age, while at the same time the Jewish denomination reinterpreted state patriotic veneration of the king and national politics that used Christian elements, within its own religious frames, drawing on the language and communitymemory of Judaism. In contemporary and commemorative speeches Francis Joseph assumed the figure of a scriptural king who came to resemble the great figures in the canon of Jewish memory because of the community experience of the attainment of social and denominational equality that occurred during his reign.
