Abstract:

Genealogies of the Seixas and Solomons families; articles and speeches by Lucius Levy Solomons on such topics as the meaning of Judaism, the Jew in the Diaspora, anti-Semitism, Palestine, immigration, philanthropy, Jewish character, fraternalism and brotherhood, spiritual nationality, political Zionism, assimilation, altruism, justice, the Jewish soul, and the prophetic idea in Judaism; family correspondence (which consists entirely of photocopies from the Solomons family papers at the American Jewish Archives); accounts and documents about the Solomons family and members of the Seixas, Green, Frank, Franks, Sloss, Lilienthal, Dorfman, and Spitzler families from Rhode Island, New York, Jamaica, and London; and a small number of photographs. Also contains the 1896 marriage license of Lucius L. Solomons and Helen B. Frank, signed by Rabbi Jacob Voorsanger and a handwritten document entitled "Dinim/Rules to be observed in Killing," which lays out the rules for kosher slaughter (this document is undated, though it appears to date to the early nineteenth century, and written in English).
