The article on Doctor Meyer was written by his successor in the pulpit of Temple Emanu-El, San Francisco, the Reverend Doctor Louis I. NEWMAN. The article on Julius Kahn was prepared by the editor on the basis of the best available data.

The only other special feature in the present volume is an annotated list of the one hundred best available books in the English language on Jewish subjects. This is the result of a thorough revision of a similar list prepared by the late Doctor JOSEPH JACOBs and published in Volume 6 of this series (The American Jewish Year Book 5665 (1904–1905)), and frequent consultation of the classified list of Standard Books on Jewish Subjects compiled by I. GEORGE DOBSEVAGE, Esq., and published in Volume 24 (5684).

The course of Jewish life in the various countries of the world during the past year is briefly and lucidly outlined in the Survey of the year 5685, by Doctor HARRY S. LINFIELD, who is unusually well-equipped for his task because of his work as compiler and editor of the monthly Summary of Events of Jewish Interest, issued by the Bureau of Jewish Social Research for the American Jewish Committee.

Under Doctor LINFIELD's direction, also the recurrent features of the Year Book, such as the various directories and lists and the section on Statistics of Jews, in which there is included a special study of the Jewish population of the Union of South Africa, were carefully revised and brought up to date.

Additional topics of interest to our readers are contained in the Eighteenth Annual Report of the American Jewish Committee, and in the account of the Thirty-Seventh Annual Meeting of the Jewish Publication Society of America, which are printed near the end of this volume.

In the preparation of this volume, I had the expert assistance of Doctor LINFIELD, whose contributions have already been referred to; Doctor Isaac Husik, the editor of the publication of the Jewish Publication Society, who painstakingly read the manuscripts and corrected the proofs; Mr. I. GEORGE DOBSEVAGE, whose advice and assistance in many directions were invaluable; Miss Rose A. HERZOG who aided in the compilation of lists and directories and Mr. Moses ALPEROVICH, in charge of the Jewish Publication Society's press who did everything in his power to cooperate in the successful production of this volume. To all of these persons I extend my heartiest thanks. July 28, 1925.
