This chapter examines Isaac Mayer Wise’s continued agitation for support for the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, and in particular for the educational institution which it was its task to bring forth. He gave himself to this task with an enthusiasm and a single-mindedness which recalls the spirit with which he had carried the flag of Zion College twenty years before. Harnessed to a practical task, working in the midst of an organized body of men, the goal of his strivings in sight, he found little occasion for personal complaints of persecution and victimization. Naturally anyone who was indifferent to the cause of the Union and the College incurred his wrath. While Wise was making further appeals via the Israelite, the union was taking shape and plans were being laid for the opening of Hebrew Union College.

Keywords:   Israel, Union of American Hebrew Congregations, educational institutions, Hebrew Union College, indifference, congregational membership, Union in Israel
