A biography of Los Angeles, California Rabbi Abraham Wolf Edelman is presented. Edelman was born on August 17, 1832 in Kutno, Poland. He received his Jewish education in Warsaw. Edelman and his wife, Hannah Pessah Cohn, came to the U.S. shortly after their marriage in 1851. In his first decade in the country, he became a Hebrew teacher and a salesman for a wholesale dry goods firm. Joseph Newmark, the patriarch of Jewry in Los Angeles, California, together with Moritz Morris, invited Edelman to officiate as the first professional rabbi in Los Angeles.
