Isaac Mayer Wise was a 19th century rabbi who was the driving force behind American Reform Judaism. The American Jewish Archive which is "committed to preserving a documentary heritage of the religious, organizational, economic, cultural, personal, social and family life of American Jewry", has the Wise Digital Archive on their website. Visitors can search many different types of documents, including "Correspondence", "Manuscripts", "Photographs", and "Contributions to Periodicals". An excellent place to start for those unfamiliar with Wise or Reform Judaism, is the "Timeline: Life of Isaac Mayer Wise", that can be found in the top left hand corner of the page. The "Correspondence" can be viewed by a date range, or by the person or congregation to whom Wise was writing.
