His printing shop had both English and Hebrew type fonts, and he was thus able to print material in both languages, which he did for the various congregations of the city. His most important works were The Form of Daily Prayers, According to the Custom of the Spanish and Portuguese Jews (1826), a translation of the Sephardi prayer book into English, and his editorship and publication of The Jew (1823–25), a monthly, the first Jewish periodical in the United States. In 1827 he was active in the Ḥevrat Ḥinnukh Ne'arim, a society to promote Jewish education, and in 1837 he led a movement to settle Jews on the land.
