Born in Pennsylvania, Eichhorn (1906-1986) studied at the University of Cincinnati and Hebrew Union College. He served as rabbi in Springfield, Mass. , Texarkana, Arkansas, and Tallahassee and Merritt Island, Florida. During WWII, he was the first Jewish chaplain to enter the Dachau concentration camp, and his April 30, 1945 service is often used in documentaries. He was awarded the Bronze Star and attained rank of lieutenant colonel. He was also chaplain at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. A liberal, he favored the idea of rabbis officiating at mixed marriages, and chaired the CCAR Committee on the Unaffiliated. Much of his scholarship was focused on the history of conversion to and from Judaism. (EJ, 2007) Ex library, otherwise good condition. (RAB-29-4)xx. N° de réf. du libraire 20706
