BBF90 Isaac Mayer Wise: Shaping American Reform Judaism by Sefton D. Temkin LANGUAGE: ENGLISH VG CONDITION, HARDCOVER Isaac Mayer Wise (1819-1900), founder of the major institutions of Reform Judaism in America, was a man of his time - a pioneer in a pioneers' world. When he came to America from his childhood Bohemia in 1846, he found fewer than 50,000 Jews and only two ordained rabbis. Through his sense of mission and tireless energy, within ten years he was the best-known rabbi in America. Wise strove for unity among the Jews of America, and for a college to train rabbis to minister to them: the establishment of Hebrew Union College (1875) was the crowning achievement of his life. His quest for unity also led him to draw up an American Jewish prayer-book "Minhag America", to found the Central Conference of American Rabbis, and to edit two weeklies; their editorials were no less important in his quest for leadership. Here as elsewhere, it was his persistence that won him the war where his impetuosity lost him many battles. Professor Temkin's biography - based on original sources - attempts to capture the vigour of Wise's personality and the politics and concerns of contemporary Jewish life and leadership in America. Based primarily on material in the American Jewish Archives of the Hebrew Union College, it is a lively portrait of a rabbi whose pioneer efforts in many fields made him a pivotal figure in the naturalization of the Jew and Judaism in the New World.
