From the earliest settlement in America, the Rabbinate has played an important role in all aspects of leadership in the American Jewish community. For many years, the rabbis of America were immigrants, born and educated outside of the United States. As the Jewish community developed, changing conditions and developing needs made necessary the establishment in this country of institutions which would provide rabbis for American Jewry.
