Heinrich Graetz endorses the future of Judaism in America in 1854

Here is an interesting 1854 letter from Heinrich Graetz to the Zion Collegiate Association, which was basically an American Jewish plan to establish schools to train Jewish ministers, or at least at this stage, a plan to establish such a school in connection with an American university.

As you can see, he writes that "no other land on the globe is as eminently qualified as the United States, to unfurl the grandeur, dignity, and sanctity of Judaism" because it is "the land of absolute liberty" and therefore it doesn't have to contend with prejudices and various other things, including the idea that such an institute would not be the "accommodating idol of any sect."

Printed in the American Israelite.

    something to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is a
    result of the passion communicated in the article I browsed.

    And on this post "Heinrich Graetz endorses the future of Judaism in America in 1854".
    I was actually excited enough to write a thought :-) I do have some questions for you if it's okay. Could it be simply me or do a few of these remarks look like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I'd like to follow you.
