Chapter Summary

The history of the Scottish Tabeetha School in Jaffa during the interwar years appears at first to be an interesting, though not necessarily very unusual, account of independent female missionary work is being arrogated by male ecclesial power. However, the years to 1936 mark a very different story, one that relates much more to women's subalternity and emancipation in a patriarchal ecclesial structure, and from this perspective it can perhaps offer insights into how the transformation of gender and power relationships can be understood and interpreted. The Women's Association for Jewish Missions (WAJM) was not a Jewish Mission Committees (JMC) sub-committee but neither was it appointed by the Assembly; therefore, unless explicitly devolved, in theory all decisions had to be ratified by the JMC; practically, this happened less and less frequently.
