In 1892, the year of Louis Auchincloss's birth, a new and exciting chapter in Jewish history was unfolding. Reform Judaism, which aimed to make Judaism more accessible to gentiles, was on the rise. Louis's father, George Auchincloss, was one of the most influential men in Reform Judaism. As a lawyer and a diplomat, he helped make the movement a reality.

The House of the Prophet is the story of Louis's family and their journey within the Reform movement. It is also the story of Louis's own journey from a young man who is trying to find his place in the world to a man who is ready to become a leader in his community and in the Jewish world.; 8vo; $6.00.
