ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the status of Jewish learning at the University of California from 1870 to 1920. Courses in Hebrew have been requested by Jewish communities in Los Angeles and San Francisco in 1872. During that time, a philo-Semitic official named Daniel Coit Gilman was being recruited for the university presidency. A Semitics department was organized at the university in 1894 by Jacob Voorsanger, rabbi of the Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco. Curriculums in Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic were suggested. Voorsanger's assistant, Max Margolis, was appointed superintendent of Emanu-El's Free Religious School. Margolis resigned in 1905 due to concerns about the treatment of Semitics at the university.
