New York: P. Cowen(1899). 1st edition. Original boards, 12mo, 13 pages. Singerman 5599; Wachs 565. Rare 19th Century Sunday "Shabbat" service booklet. "In 1885, the Reform rabbinical conference in Pittsburgh unanimously agreed that Shabbat was too important to be limited to Saturday. Essentially, if people could not get off of work to come to services on Saturday they should still strive to attend a service at a synagogue or temple, even if that meant doing so on Sunday.... Reform rabbis in America weren't advocating transferring Shabbat services to Sunday altogether. Rather, they were offering a supplementary service and sermon on Sunday for those who could not attend on Saturday. In practice only about 15 percent of Reform synagogues in America ended up adding a Sunday service, and all but two of those congregations still held services on Friday night and/or Saturday. Still, the communities that held services on Sundays were large and powerful ones within the Reform movement" ( Temple Beth-El (located on Fifth Avenue and East 76th Street) consolidated with leading Reform synagogue Emanu-El in 1927, and soon thereafter built their present house of worship at Fifth Avenue and East 65th Street.
