Correspondence; Religious communities
Letter from Joshua Lavsano to Isaac Leeser, regarding problems the Jewish Community is having in the battle over the form of services in the synagogue Beth Elohim. He relates that as a member, he can see no possibility of cooperation. He thanks Reverend Leeser for his intervention but things have gone down divergent paths. He notes that a meeting was held to consider the Philadelphia recommendation of one joint synagogue, but it was soundly rebuffed.
