On June 3, 2008 a ceremony of commemoration of the Great Rabbis of Poznan, particularly of Rabbi Akiva Eiger and his family, took place at the Jewish cemetery in Poznan. The event was organized by the Poznan branch of the Union of the Jewish Communities in Poland.

The Jewish cemetery in Poznan, where the ceremony took place, was being renovated from June 2007 on the initiative of the Poznan Jewish Community and Rabbi Eliakim Schlesinger of the Committee for the Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries in Europe. The restoration works included also the tomb of Rabbi Eiger, destroyed by Nazis during World War II.

Rabbi Akiva Eiger (1761-1837) was one of the greatest Talmudists of his times. He was the Rabbi of Miroslawiec from 1791 to 1815, and a founder of a famous Talmudic school in this town. He became the Head Rabbi of Poznan in 1815 and remained at this post until his death. He left behind many religious books.
