Neander, John

Neander, John a Presbyterian minister, was born of Jewish parentage, November 12, 1812, at Neubruck, in the province of Posen. He was educated in accordance with Talmudical Judaism, and in 1835 was called to Bremerlehe, near Bremerhaven, to occupy a rabbinical position there. In 1838, however, he joined the Church at Bremen, and became a missionary to the Jews. In 1845 Neander arrived in New York, and, as in Germany, labored among the Jews. In 1846 he was ordained by the Dutch Reformed Church, and in 1852 settled at Brooklyn, N.Y., where he organized the First German Presbyterian Church, in which he labored for more than thirty years. He died November 6, 1885. (B.P.)
