A man of learning, and a man
of action, Israel Friedlaender was
one of those multi-gifted men of
genius at the turn of the American
century who, through their scholar-
ship and inspired leadership, did
so much to form the character of
the fledgling Jewish community.
An intellectual titan who was one
of the foremost Hebraic and Ara-
bic scholars of his age, his dedica-
tion to his people drove him be-
yond the cloistered academic life
into the wider arena of com-
munity leadership. All problems
that involved the well-being of his
people engaged his passionate in-
terest. The education of Jewish
youth, the promulgation of the
Zionist ideal, the unity of Israel,
the rescue of persecuted Jewry—
these are all areas to which Fried-
laender contributed so much in
active participation. And beyond
these activities he produced within
a brief and brilliant lifetime many
significant works of scholarship.
