Deborah, Vol. 2-3
[Women - Periodical]
This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
Two volumes, 424; 416 pp., 273:197 mm., usual age staining. A very good copy bound in modern cloth boards. Only one complete set recorded.
In 1854 Isaac Mayer Wise founded The Israelite in Cincinnati (after 1874 The American Israelite), which one year later added a German-language supplement called Deborah. The most important German Jewish publication of its time, Deborah appeared until 1903, first as a weekly and subsequently as a monthly. The shifting nature of its contents during this period can be read in the changing subtitle on its masthead: originally Gewidmet den Toechtern Israels ("Dedicated to the Daughters of Israel"), it next became Juedisch-Amerikanische Familien Zeitung ("Jewish American Family Paper"), then Allgemeine Zeitung des amerikanischen Judentums ("General Newspaper of American Jewry"), and finally Eine deutsch-amerikanische Monatsschrift zur Foerderung juedischer Interessen in Gemeinde, Schule und Haus ("A German-American Monthly Magazine for the Advancement of Jewish Interests in the Community, School and Home").
