This chapter discusses Isaac Mayer Wise’s remarriage. In 1876, the American Israelite announced Wise’s ‘co-partnership’ with Selma Bondi, of New York, the daughter of the late Rev. Jonas Bondi, editor of the Jewish Leader. The chapter explores the controversies this remarriage engendered, turning in particular to the opinions published in the Jewish Times and the Jewish Messenger. It also presents a brief description of Wise’s children and the lives of those who had already reached adulthood by then. When he remarried, Wise had eight surviving children. By his second marriage there were four. In 1876, his older children had reached the adult stage.
