I would agree with Mathilde, rather than Eliane.
The word very much resembles the German "Zehngeboteschreiber" for a
Sofer STa"M, scribe of holy scriptures like Thora, Tefilin and
But I cannot claim to have seen the word in this or other use.

Abraham SCHNERB in his marriage certificate to Veronique LEVY (19-Oct-1=
in Reguisheim (68)) is said to be a Decalogiste).
What was this occupation/profession in 1857 ?

hi Pierre,
perhaps what was meant by this word was someone master of
or dealing with the Decalogue, the Torah - a rabbi or reader and chazan.
This is to be proved of course...
good research to all,
