Seymour, 1830. $3000 - $4000 ❧ Speech given at an annual charity benefit dinner by Daniel Peixotto (1800-43), a pioneering Jewish doctor and philanthropist, in which he declared that preserving the Hebrew language was vitally necessary for the wholesome preservation of the Jewish faith. He proclaimed that dispensing knowledge to the ignorant was as important as giving money to the poor. Peixotto sought to establish a school for the proper education of teachers, who would then reach out to the youth of the community and teach them Hebrew. Peixotto believed that only by providing more and better access to education would the decline of Hebrew knowledge by Jews in America be reversed. See Patricia D.
