BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH top

Henry Berkowitz, a Reform rabbi and educator, was born March 18, 1857 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was the son of Louis and Henrietta (Jaroslawski) Berkowitz. Berkowitz was educated in the public schools of Pittsburgh and graduated from the Central High School in 1872. He attended Cornell University for one year intending to become a lawyer. His career plans changed abruptly after hearing a sermon by Isaac M. Wise, who was pleading for the establishment of a training college for Reform rabbis. Berkowitz decided to become a Reform rabbi at the new Hebrew Union College. At the same time, he matriculated at the University of Cincinnati. He graduated in 1883 among the first graduating class of the Hebrew Union College. In 1887 he received the D.D. degree from the same institution.

His first congregation was in Mobile, Alabama at Congregation Sha'are Shomayim where he served from 1883 to 1888. In 1888 he was called to the pulpit of Congregation B'nai Jehudah'in Kansas City, Missouri. He moved to his third and last pulpit in 1892 when he accepted the call to the Rodeph Sholem Congregation of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He served as rabbi at Temple Rodeph Sholem for thirty years until ill health compelled his retirement two years before his death.

Rabbi Berkowitz was active in promoting the safety and welfare of the communities in which he lived. In Mobile, Alabama he organized a society called The Humane Movement for the Protection of Children and Animals from Cruelty. In Kansas City he was chiefly instrumental in the creation of the first bureau of charities and corrections and represented the state of Missouri at meetings of the National Conference of Charities and Corrections. In Philadelphia he helped in the establishment of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies (1901) and the Philadelphia Rabbinical Association (1901). He was a member of the Vice Commission, a member of the Board of Recreation, and a vice-president of the Universal Peace Union and Social Purity Alliance.

Berkowitz made his chief contribution to Jewish institutional and educational activity in the United States when he founded the Jewish Chautauqua Society in 1893. He served as chancellor of the society from the date of its foundation. He was also a charter member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, (CCAR) when that organization was founded in 1889. He functioned as chairman of the Committee to draft a formula for the reception of proselytes and the committee on arbitration to adjust differences between congregations and rabbis

He published many works including textbooks. Bible Ethics, First Union Hebrew Reader, and Second Hebrew Reader were written in collaboration with Joseph Krauskopf in 1883. Other published works were Judaism on the Social Question (1888); The Open Bible (1896); Kiddush or Sabbath Sentiment in the Home(1898); The New Education in Religion (1913); and Intimate Glimpses of the Rabbi's Career (1921).

In 1883 he married Flora Brunn of Coshocton, Ohio. They had two children Etta J. Reefer and Max E. Berkowitz. Henry Berkowitz died on February 7, 1924.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE top

The HENRY BERKOWITZ PAPERS (1878-1923) document the career of the Reform rabbi and educator, Henry Berkowitz. The collection consists of correspondence, addresses, sermons, reports, notes, poems, newsclippings, and other papers. The Papers are organized into four series:

  • A. CORRESPONDENCE
  • B. JOURNALS AND DIARIES
  • B. SERMONS, ADDRESSES, AND NOTES
  • C. NEARPRINT
  • D. MISCELLANEOUS.
  • SERIES A. Correspondence (1883-1936) is arranged alphabetically and then chronologically within each folder with two sub-series one of which is entitled “Family Correspondence”, which contains correspondence of the immediate family members of Henry Berkowitz. Access to many of the more significant correspondents and subjects may be made through the use of the Box and Folder List and the Subject Tracings in this inventory. The bulk of the correspondence deals with the period around 1919. Most of the material concerns the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine and the campaign to influence the Paris Peace Conference (1919). Berkowitz opposed the Zionist viewpoint.

    SERIES B. Journals and Diaries, (1881-1914) is arranged chronologically. Berkowitz was an avid writer and wrote very vivid and detailed accounts of his travels. Later he turned his letters into journals including pictures and postcards he had collected during his trip.
