A collection of sermons by R. Dr. Liebman Adler. Dr. Adler was born in 1812 in Wiemar to his father, Judah, a teacher in Germany. Dr. Adler immigrated to America, and served in several congregations including Temple Beth El in Detroit where he was installed in 1855, and at Chicago in 1861, where he served until his death in 1892. Dr. Adler avowedly belonged to the radical German Reform school, which, not content with minor innovations in public worship, demanded an adjustment to modern times and circumstances of the professed principles of Judaism, not of its forms merely.
