Jewish weekly; established in San Francisco, Cal., in 1863, by Philo Jacoby, a son of Isaac Jacoby, rabbi of Lauenburg, Pomerania. It is still published by its founder, and is the oldest Jewish paper on the Pacific coast. Rabbis Henry and Bettelheim, and Ernest Jacoby of Chicago, a brother of the founder, have been among its editors. The tendency of the paper in religious matters is conservative.
