Meet Ms. Selma Bondi, one of the four daughters of Dr. Jonas Bondi, the rabbi installed in 1858 by congregation Anshi Chesed in our building.   This photo shows her in 1876, the year she married Isaac Mayer Wise, the leading reform rabbi and newspaper editor from Cincinnati, who fell in love with Ms. Bondi while inspecting her late father’s library.
