Goldstein, Herbert S. (Herbert Samuel), 1890-1970

Herbert Samuel Goldstein (1890-1970) was born on New York's Lower East Side, and received degrees from Columbia University, the Jewish Theological Seminary, and Yeshiva University. He was instrumental in developing a model of Orthodox synagogue services and programming that would attract children of Eastern European immingrants, and implemented this in the Institutional Synagogue, located first in Harlem and then on Manhattan's Upper West Side (as the West Side Institutional Synagogue), where Goldstein officiated beginning in 1917 and remained affiliated with until his death in 1970. Goldstein also held leadership roles in numerous national Jewish organizations, and headed the homiletics department at Yeshiva University's Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS) for many years. Goldstein travelled to Israel frequently on behalf of various charitable institutions, and is the author of several books.
