Austrian educator, born in Worblingen on February 9, 1780. He was educated at home, at Lengau (Switzerland), at Fürth (Bavaria), and at Pressburg, after which he accepted a position as instructor in Vienna. Later, he moved to Triest, where he opened a private school. He passed the remainder of his life at Triest, with the exception of the years from 1838 to 1847, spent in teaching at Fiume and Fiorenzuola. In 1832 and again in 1834, he acted as rabbi during temporary vacancies occasioned by the deaths of two incumbents. Randegger maintained a correspondence with the leading rabbis and scholars of his time. Among his works may be mentioned "Ẓinnat Dawid" (Vienna, 1841) and "Haggadah" (ib. 1851), with an Italian translation by his daughter and annotations by himself. He died in Triest on March 12, 1853.
