Excerpt from Twelve Sermons Delivered in the New Temple of the Israelites, at Hamburgh

I have two objects in offering the following translation to the public. The first, and of itself sufficient motive, is the h0pe of being useful to such of my co-religionists as are unacquainted with the German, and therefore unable to avail themselves of the varied sources of religions in struction which a knowledge of that language opens to its readers. My father, who has acted, both in public and private, on the opinion that religious education can be best conducted at home, shares with me this hope. In that home instruction I have found, and think that others will find, these discourses conducive to the at tainment of clear and comprehensive views of the Mosaic faith. To all who are engaged inthe formation of the religious character of the young, but above all to mothers, whose espe cial vocation it is, diligently and lovingly to foster true piety in the hearts of their children, everything must be valuable, that can assist them in the fulfilment of this, their most im portant duty. To mothers and instructors, then, I especially offer such aid as these ser mons can furnish. I have selected twelve from many published by one of the most learned, able, and eloquent teachers in Germany, in that land of profound Hebrew historians, scho lars, and theologians. I have not selected them because they were superior to any others as compositions, but because they appeared to me to embrace the whole circle of our highest religious and moral obligations.
