Every member of the congregation could justly feel proud of his religion and his Faith. A a a a f a the dedication of the new Temple is the grand finale in the second period of the Coqui station a history a the actors in the great drama of quiet development were perhaps unaware of the grandeur of their work. 1 the congregation had i come from obscurity into the Light of Petty i matters for those of weightier import.

Probably that 1�p�iif3�ertedpitt greatest on other congregations was the introduction of Bej Friday night lecture or Sermon. In 1866 or. Wise proposed to deliver each Friday night a lecture on some religious philosophical or religious historical subject. The congregation endorsed the a proposition and in the fall of 1867 this Friday night serv Natii Ffitch has Lii Vij Hiil i Ture 1& a the congregation was established.

The congregation Bene Yeshurun established in its palate a a Temple now enters upon its a glorious career of general activity in religious and charitable matters. The influence of the a Greg we pm it the becomes National and is Felt a in All questions of congregational Reform. Its Fame was greatly spread abroad by the fearless Earnest enthusiastic work of its indefatigable and conscientious rabbi. During this period he was constantly travelling in All parts of the country dedicating new temples delivering popular lectures and attending conventions and conferences. In these latter assemblies he was always the moving spirit and his personality and that of the congregation became inseparable. As said in a former chapter the history of this congregation since 1854 is in reality the history of its Mizual Kun App my Leader. Í0mm be impossible in a work of this character to follow the Chain of events since 1866 in detail Only the More prominent ones will be mentioned. The congregation began the last period my fits half Century a an indebtedness of nearly one Hundred thousand dollars. Since 1866 the Temple has been frescoes painted and remodeler have been increased and Many additional expenditures made. To i1t. A Raofi fish Jeff a edition is excellent. It has been Able to meet All this expense because of the co operation and liberality of its own devoted members. At various times Bonds without interest to the amount of nearly $40,000 were taken by the members to pay off existing indebtedness and to defray necessary outlay for improvements. Then too in 1866, nearly $70,000 was ramp ised As premiums fro amp Luj a be surely this attests a Devotion on the part of the members. English and German a by or. Wise was adopted. In 1871 the triennial Cycle of the Reading of the Thorah i. E., Reading the Thorah As a whole once Ever three years was replaced by the Reading of Twenty one verses each Sabbath so that during the year selections from the whole Law might be read. Ust itt 1873 the Observance of the second Day of new year was abolished and it was resolved that it should not be unlawful to attend divine service with uncovered head. In 1874 the members were allowed to hold the funeral of any deceased member of the family in the Temple. The new rituals for Friday night and saturday morning service a were adopted respectively in 1888 and 1890. The important changes consist in having the greater part of the service conducted in the vernacular and in $3sioc>. Tearing cars from $2685-to $3500 r a a a m a a. Ivy a a it. I. A i in.

Adler in which he expressed his willingness to Deposit his $10,000 do. Nation in Trust with the congregation Cincinnati National sales co. And a committee was appointed to consummate the transaction. During the Winter of 1873 the delegates of the various Home congregations held several conferences and finally agreed to Issue a Call for a general convention of Western and southwestern congregations to be held at Cincinnati on july 8, 1873. This convention assembled on july 8th, and remained in session three Days. The result of its labors was the formation of the Union of american hebrew congregations with or. A loth As president. Henceforth the history of the steady growth successful career and benign influence of the Union and the College becomes of National import and is not properly a part of the history of this congregation. F at this time the congregation Bene Yeshurun the first advocate of Union and,.the Loyal supporter of the College can look Back with pardonable Pride at the Noble stand which it took in this great congregational movement. Today the Union is composed of eighty four congregations which Are situated in every part of these United states. The hebrew Union College has graduated Twenty eight rabbis and these Young men to Day Are at the head of some of the most influential congregations in the country. American Judaism has been preserved elevated and become influential solely because of this Union and the College. And if it be said that or. Wise is the father of the Union and the College then it May truly be said that k. K. Bene Yeshurun is the Mother. The Honor of establishing these great factors in american Judaism justly belong to both. 5 a conclusion. F fifty years ago on the 28th of february 1848, the general Assembly of Ohio granted to a number of Young Earnest and god fearing men their associates and successors a charter for a religious corporation. During this half Century the Bene Yeshurun has grown from a membership of fifty to one of three Hundred and thirty. Instead of worshipping in the rear room of a members House where the services were conducted by a Reader Chazan at an annual salary of $75, it now worships in one of the finest temples in the land. To Day it has a rabbi an assistant rabbi and an efficient choir. It is significant that the congregation celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of its incorporation in the year 1892, a year which is especially dear to All americans As commemorating i my my is a ill a v. �?~6 if i a sap 9w Jim pm Impi Juis m phone North 83-34 at amp a ski Dayhof night a a �or4s�repaiie�.

His successor was the Rev. Samuel Kraus whose magnificent of flip. Baritone voice made him one of the�0 most desirable cantors in America. Or. Kraus remained with the congregation Twenty three years until the Spring of 1889, when the office of Cantor was abolished. In june 1889, at a general meeting the office of assistant rabbi was established and rabbi Charles Levi a graduate of the class of 89 of the hebrew Union College he likewise delivered his famous lec Jesus a a a a a apostles and this latter course was Sev True religious Liberty was enjoyed.

The congregation Bene Yeshurun has earned for itself the name of the Pioneer Reform congregation it has always been among the leaders in All movements involving the welfare of american Judaism and has probably Bis. But k. K. Bene Yeshurun a was already too Liberal to pay any attention to this hostile criticism on the contrary it heartily endorsed the Wise course of its rabbi. The Union and the College.

Wise and rabbi Levi deliver sermons alternately every Friday night and saturday morning. Or. Wise has continued at the head of the congregation since 18541. However in August 1873, or. Wise thinking that he had been neglected somewhat by the congregation and believing that he could extend his Field of usefulness and More easily carry out his project for a Union and a rabbinical College in the East accepted a Call from the congregation Ashe Chesed of new York City which had elected him for life at an annual salary of $8,000, House rent Etc. The rabbi thereupon placed his Resigna a in the hands of the Board to take effect on the 26th of december following. The congregation refused to accept his resignation and appointed a committee to persuade or. Wise to withdraw the same. The committee reported that the resignation would be withdrawn provided the new York congregation would release the Rev. Or. Wise. This release was finally obtained and at a general meeting of the congregation held shortly thereafter or. Wise a annual salary was increased from $4,000 to $6.000, and he was Given his House rent and other financial Aid. A the Resolution of the committee to secure the withdrawal of or. Wise a resignation is worthy of preservation in these annals As striking the proper keynote of the reciprocal relation Between congregation and rabbi. The Resolution read As follows of a a we hold that As no congregation has a right to remove from office for a trivial cause a rabbi who has faithfully and conscientiously performed his duties so no rabbi except for the promotion of a great a a a Hhd has a right to by.

As Early As 1848, the members in general meeting in response to a Call issued by or. Wise then at Albany had resolved to Send delegates to Philadelphia to meet in convention with Delegate a a Fogt Mother congregations for the purpose of establishing a Union. That convention however never assembled. Jin 1853 or. Wise in his letter to the congregation stated that one of his principal reasons for coming to Cincinnati was the fervent Hope he had of establishing a rabbinical College Here. He based this on the readiness and spirit with which the congregation had entered into the Union project of 1848, and also on the successful establishment of the talmud Yelo dim Institute. The Union and College were finally established pm mainly through the co operative work of or. Wise and Bern Yeshurun. From 1854 until 1873 both rabbi and congregation worked indefatigably for the cherished goal. In 1855 the Board of trustees resolved to pay the expenses j�9legntes appointed to attend a conference at Cleveland o., for the purpose of forming a Union. A Short time thereafter Zion College a jewish College the forerunner of the hebrew Union College was actually opened with a faculty of five and a Freshno to a ass of four met i a cd Tab end of the Scholastic year it died from Lack of support from the congregations. Still neither or. Wise nor the congregation became discouraged. Both abide the time. In 1867 the congregation voted an annual contribution of $300 toward the establishment of a rabbinical College.
