Chapter Summary

Nineteenth-century churchmen, theologians and missionaries were not the first modern advocates of the observance of the Torah by Jewish Christians. The first meeting of the Children of Abraham, which functioned as a mutual aid society and prayer group, was held in the Committee Room of Jews' Chapel, Spitalfields, under the chairmanship, in Frey's absence, of Moses Marcus senior, the treasurer. While Christian Frederick Frey was the father of Hebrew Christian institutional independence, One of the Second Tribe was one of the pioneers-along with Joseph Priestley and Thomas Witherby-not only of Hebrew Christian but also of Messianic Jewish theological independence by daring to suggest that Judaism still had something more to teach Christianity . The committee of the Philo-Judaean Society regarded the proposed establishment of a Hebrew Institution as the most efficient means of achieving their objectives.
