American Jewish Archives launches the Isaac Mayer Wise Digital Archive
The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives is honored to announce The Isaac Mayer Wise Digital Archive, a freely accessible comprehensive edition of Rabbi Wise’s correspondence and extensive published writings.
Scheduled for launch on March 29, 2009 (the 190th anniversary of Wise’s birth), The Isaac Mayer Wise Digital Archive contains over 3,000 items captured in nearly 20,000 digital images. Consisting of correspondence, manuscripts, essays, and photographs, this web resource makes available in one place the collected papers of the founder of the Hebrew Union College and the person widely credited as the architect of Reform Judaism in the United States.
