The author, (1848-1909), was a Lithuanian-born Rabbi, who, upon migration to America, served as a pioneering Chaplain to all the penal institutions in New York. His care and religious concern is aptly demonstrated where he records that his colleague, a Rabbi B. Drachman, purchased Tzitzith and Tephillin for the inmates under his care (see note on p. 7)
