German SIG #Germany Rabbiners is not a plural #germany

<< Also, can someone explain why the prefix for Rabbi is given as a plural? >>

from my limited knowledge of German grammar, I think this is the answer:
"Des" is the definite article for the genitive case and all adjectives after it
should end in "s," so Rabbiners is not plural but genitive.

Is there anybody on this list who is better at 17th century German grammar
than I?
