Overview

Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise came to the United States in 1846, and for more than half a century, he was an active participant in the religious life of American Jewry. The collected writings of Rabbi Wise, founder of modern American Reform Judaism, are available for students of religion, theology, and religious history.

Wise was the prime figure in establishing the famous Anglo-Jewish newspaper, The American Israelite. He also founded the Union of American Rabbis and the Hebrew Union College. The entirety of American Jewish life has been significantly influenced by this man's contributions.

The collection includes the religious writings of Rabbi Wise, his correspondence, published reports, addresses, sermons, book excerpts, and newspaper and journal pieces. Also included are the newspapers edited by Rabbi Wise, The American Israelite and Deborah.

The collection is accompanied by a hardbound guide containing a biography of Rabbi Wise, written by Sefton Timken, a leading Wise scholar. There is also a theological biography, consisting of writings by Dr. Jacob Rader Marcus, Director of the American Jewish Archives at the Hebrew Union College in Ohio, plus a complete cross-referenced table of contents.
