ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the life and works of Rabbi Abraham Wolf Edelman. His most remarkable contribution to the society was the firm foundation for the Jewish community in Los Angeles, California because of its great help and services to the people. Since he came from a Polish-Jewish family with Western European orientation, it was easier for him to blend with the community when he came in June 1862. However, it is notable that he was able to blend easily with the American culture and trend because he both adapt to the innovative demands of his era. He was greatly committed to the general fraternal life, civic activities, Jewish organizations and other foundations that give credit to the people.
