Philipson participated in the conference which drew up the Pittsburgh Platform (1885); he was a rounder of the Central Conference of American Rabbis serving as president in 1907–09; and he was an influential figure in Hebrew Union College, where he taught for many years, and in the Union of American Hebrew Congregations….He was a member of the board of translators of the Jewish Publication Society for the translation of the Holy Scriptures (1916), an editor of Selected Writings of Isaac M.
