Excerpt from The American Jewish Year Book 5664: September 22, 1903, to September 9, 1904 The new feature in the american jewish year book for 5664 is the series of Biographical Sketches of Rabbis and Can tors in the United States, which was compiled because of the interest necessarily attaching to the education and literary activity of the spiritual guides of American Jewry. The 363 sketches here presented form the first installment of an American Jewish Who's Who. They do not lay claim to com pleteness either in respect to contents or in respect to num bers. Limitations of space forbade all but an outline. As to numbers, it cannot be assumed that the 694 persons addressed exhaust the number of Rabbis and Cantors at present offi ciating in the United States. Moreover, of this presumably incomplete number nearly 36 per cent were not heard from. The remaining 64 per cent include 341 who supplied the in formation used in compiling their sketches; four, information about whom was furnished by relatives and friends; four who declined to furnish any data about themselves, and whose names were omitted; eighteen who are officiating as volunteer Rabbis or Cantors; eight who are no longer connected with congregations; one who reported that he had moved to Canada; two who were reported by their former congregations as having removed; one who was reported deceased by a friend; and sixty-eight whose circulars were returned by the post office asinsufficicntly or incorrectly addressed.
