The Berlin Jewish Salons of 1800 have often been discussed as places for emancipation and even as moments of ,,German-Jewish Symbiosis”, a phrase that has been questioned ever since Gershom Scholem's verdict, that there was no such thing as a German-Jewish dialogue. This article explores the ways and the tone of the communication in the Berlin salon of the 1790s as it can be traced in their papers and letters. On the basis of mainly unpublished ,,billets” it can be shown that members of the salon society upheld a somewhat ,,enlightened” tone. A specific blend of irony, wit, gallantry and gossip helped to deal with conflicting issues such as differences in background or conversion. On the example of Wilhelm von Humboldt, the paper discusses to what extent the networking relationships of the 1790s changed and were still relevant at the beginning of the 19th century.
