Vallentine, Isaac

English journalist and communal worker; born in Belgium 1793; died in London 1868; son of the Rev. N. I. Vallentine. He founded the earliest Anglo-Jewish periodical, which at first was unsuccessful, but which afterward gave rise to the "Jewish Chronicle." He also took a prominent part in the foundation of the Jews' Orphan Asylum and other charitable and literary institutions in London. In 1848 Vallentine published "The Hebrew Almanack and Calendar," containing a table of holy days and fasts for the ensuing twenty-five years. This has been continued annually up to the present time, and has become the communal pocket calendar.
