He returned from Cairo laden with treasures, which became the subjects of various articles and monographs. The collection was presented by him and Dr. Taylor to the Cambridge University Library, and is known as the Taylor-Schechter collection. These two scholars published in collaboration ‘The Wisdom of Ben Sira,’ Cambridge, 1899.” “Kohler actively espoused the cause of Reform Judaism; he was one of the youngest members of the Philadelphia Jewish Rabbinical Conference of 1869, and in 1885 he convened the Pittsburg Rabbinical Conference, which adopted the so-called ‘Pittsburg Platform,’ on which Reform Judaism in America stands.” (JE, 1906) OCLC: 27576599, OCLC lists 5 copies of the offprint worldwide (HUC, Penn, NLI, UManchester, ULeeds).
