Papers and reports read at the meeting of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, held at Louisville, Ky., in June, 1904. Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR), is a "national organization of Reform rabbis. It was founded in 1889 by Isaac Mayer Wise , who had earlier established the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (UAHC, called the Union for Reform Judaism since 2003) and Hebrew Union College . After the college had ordained 20 rabbis, Wise felt it was time to replace the several regional rabbinic bodies with a national organization. Wise was elected president and headed the CCAR for 11 years until his death in 1900; subsequent presidents served for only two years. The conference thus took its place as the third major arm of the Reform Movement along with the UAHC and the college, and set the standard that each of the movements in American Judaism would have a theological seminary, a congregational body, and a rabbinic organization" (Levy in EJ 2007).
