This chapter details Isaac Mayer Wise’s early writings. After the failure of the union effort, Wise seems to have remained in the background for a while. But he was not idle. Amid troubles Wise seems to have kept steadily at work. His regular duties as rabbi and teacher were substantial; he wanted to turn his back on the rabbinate and continue his study of the law. Wise also set to work on his first book, on the Jewish religion. However, before 1849 drew to a close, there had opened up a new opportunity for Wise to make himself known beyond the confines of Albany. In October, Robert Lyon, of New York, began the publication of his weekly, Asmonean.
