Transcript of S. Felix Mendelsohn
America [[[ When he got there, as an Orthodox Jew,
he realized that the main American Judaism was reform. He changed the way he thought into the Reform Judaism way of thinking During WWI he realized he needed a job,
so he went to HUC(Hebrew Union College)
, and became a professor there. One of his Colleagues found a great job at a new synagogue. They were looking for a Rabbi. Felix went to try out for the job, and he got it! He had become the first Rabbi of Temple Beth Israel. While working there, he wrote the
"Prayer For a Modern Jew", which
became very popular in other reform
synagogues. It was a daily prayer that
said reform jews, or any jews, can pray
whenever, and where ever, they think
suitable, or reasonable, or anywhere they
feel like it. He worked at Temple Beth Israel until he died, putting in 34 great years. Family Life Felix Married Nanette Bloom (Mendelsohn),
