N[Ew] Y[Ork]; Alco-Gravure, Inc, 1918. Original Poster. 1 print. 84 x 56 cm. Lithograph, color. Poster showing a soldier reaching out above the chaos of battle. “Civilians, when we go through this we need all the help and comfort you can give - The Jewish Welfare Board. United War Work Campaign - Week of November 11, 1918.” The National Jewish Welfare Board, founded on April 9, 1917, played a central role in providing for both the spiritual and material needs of Jewish troops in World War I. Later renamed the Jewish Welfare Board, this organization trained both rabbis and lay leaders to serve as aids for the Jewish military. The Jewish Welfare Board supplied soldiers with kosher food, Passover meals, holiday services, and trans-denominational prayer books. Important Jewish leaders such as Dr. Cyrus Adler expedited these efforts. The Jewish Welfare Board also organized secular activities for the soldiers. By 1918, the Board extended its effort to the Jewish troops overseas. This classic poster shows a soldier who implores civilians to help with the war.

He was admitted to the bar in 1908. A staunch believer in civil liberties, Weinberger defended many aliens, immigrants, anarchists, and other radicals, including Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman, whom he believed had been deprived of their rights.

First edition. Free Synagogue pulpit, vol. 5, no. 2. Anti-German and pro-French Bastille Day addresses from 1917 and 1918 by Stephen S. Wise. Discusses the situation of Jews in Alsace Lorraine. WW I era. In 1900, Wise “launched his career as the rabbi of Congregation Beth Israel in Portland, Oregon; typical of the activists of the Progressive Era, he attacked many of the social and political ills of contemporary America. In 1906, concerning another rabbinical appointment, Wise made a major break with the established Reform movement over the question ‘whether the pulpit shall be free or whether the pulpit shall not be free, and, by reason of its loss of freedom, reft of its power for good, ’ in 1907 he established his Free Synagogue, starting the ‘free Synagogue’ movement. Rabbi Wise was an early supporter of Zionism, and his support for, and commitment to Political Zionism was very atypical of Reform Judaism, which was historically and decidedly non-Zionist since the Pittsburgh Platform in 1885. He was a founder of the New York Federation of Zionist Societies in 1897, which led in the formation of the nationalFederation of American Zionists (FAZ), a forerunner of the Zionist Organization of America. At the Second Zionist Congress (Basel, 1898), he was a delegate and secretary for the English language. Wise served as honorary secretary of FAZ, in close cooperation with Theodor Herzl until the latter's death in 1904. Wise, joining U. S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, Felix Frankfurter, and others laid the groundwork for a democratically elected nationwide organization of 'ardently Zionist' Jews, 'to represent Jews as a group and not as individuals'.
