about

Judaism's major institutions - Hebrew Union College, the Central Conference of American Rabbis, and the Reform prayer book Minhag America - were all due to the singular efforts of Isaac Mayer Wise (1819-1900). Sefton Temkin's biography captures the vigour of Wise's personality and the politicsand concerns of Jewish life and leadership in America at that time. It is a lively portrait of a rabbi who was a pivotal figure in the naturalization of Jews and Judaism in the New World.
Sefton D. Temkin was Emeritus Professor of Jewish History at the State University of New York at Albany. He died in 1996.
