RECOMMENDATORY LETTERS.

The Hebrew Congregation, Benai Jeshurun, of Newark, State of New Jersey, intends to erect a house of worship to
the God of Israel. Although small in number, and having no wealthy members in their midst, they have contributed
over $1,200, bought a suitable lot, and defrayed all the expenses necessary at the start of a Congregation. But they are
unable, if not assisted by their brethren and friends, to provide the means necessary for the erection of a Synagogue.
They would willingly delay the erection of a house of worship, and be fully satisfied with the room they have fitted up,
and in which service at present is held, if, on the last Holidays, the truth had not been manifested, that the number of
worshippers (sic) was so large, that it has become impossible that they can be accommodated in that room. They therefore
earnestly solicit their friends to assist them in their praiseworthy undertaking, and entertain not the least doubt, that by
the liberality and charity of their brethren, they will soon be enabled to begin the erection of a house, in which the name
of the Holy One of Israel will be praised and worshipped.

Although I am at all times opposed to recommendatory letters, yet in the present instance I most cheerfully comply
with the request of the Trustees of the contemplated Synagogue at Newark, to endorse the claim they have on the
sympathy and aid of those more affluent than themselves, and to solicit subscriptions for their laudable undertaking.

It is with much pleasure that I recommend the Hebrew Congregation of Newark to the kindness of the Jewish com-
munity. Few in number, and with very limited means, they undertook to form a congregation, and their increasing
numbers now require that they should erect suitable places of worship, and I feel confident that any donation bestowed
on our brothers in Newark, will be applied in such a manner that the donors will be gratified at it.
