The Jews of the United States

By Abram S. Isaacs

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 1900

The author surveys activities and developments of American Jewry during the Jewish calendar year 5659. He notes the arrival of at least 37,000 Jewish immigrants, and reports they are thriving and building communities. Among other topics of observation: Jewish participation in the Spanish-American War; improvement efforts in Jewish religious schools; publications of Jewish literature; the 25th anniversary of the Reform movement's "Sunday Sabbath" institution (which, the author notes, "has not made the headway anticipated"); developments regarding Jewish organizations such as the Council of Jewish Women, B'nai B'rith and the Free Sons of Israel, as well as Jewish medical and social services institutions; and Zionist movement developments.
