Read the introductory page on Rabbi Machol

Rabbi Michaelis Machol died in August 1912. In June 1914 Rabbi Louis Wolsey, who had come to Anshe Chesed (then the Scovill Avenue Temple) in 1907 and served as its rabbi for five years with Rabbi Machol as rabbi emeritus, gave this memorial address at the annual conference of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, meeting in Detroit. We show his address in full below, thanks to the Google book of the conference proceedings. Wolsey, the congregation's first American-born, American-trained rabbi, would serve Anshe Chesed until 1925. (more on Wolsey)
