New York Rabbis Contribute to New Publication

Download PDF for this date

Rabbis H. G. Enelow and Louis I. Newman, New York, are two of thirteen rabbis whose sermons were chosen this year to make up the Book of Sermons which is published annually by the Tract Commission of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations.

Rabbi Enelow’s contribution is entitled “On Yom Kippur Eve”, and is intended for the holiday of the Day of Atonement. The title of Rabbi Newman’s sermon is “Fear Not the Sentence of Death,” and it was intended for the same holiday.

The publication is used throughout the country in small towns where there are no rabbis; in institutions, and among university groups of Jewish students. Services are generally conducted by laymen, and the sermon read from the Sermon Pamphlet.
