He was elected to the First National German Parliament, in 1848. In idealistic motivation to creating a better Christian State, Hoffmann assembled groups setting up communities in which their striving would be practiced in daily life. In 1854, he established the "Friends of Jerusalem", which in June 1861 formed into a Christian religious organisation known as Deutscher Tempel, its members identified themselves as Templers. In 1868 the Templers started to create settlements in Palestine. Hoffmann died in the Templer settlement in Jerusalem".
