Chapter Summary

Anthony Ashley Cooper, later Lord Shaftesbury, who would become president of the LSPCJ in 1848, wrote an article in one of the London periodicals predicting the return of the Jews to Palestine. As an autodidact John Oxlee had an exceptional ability to learn foreign languages and acquired a knowledge of approximately 120 including dialects. While in Ireland Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna began to write tracts for various religious societies under her Christian names Charlotte Elizabeth. John Christian Reichardt was an LSPCJ missionary who inaugurated systematic evangelism among London Jews and was one of the society's translators of the New Testament into Hebrew. Rev. Dr. Nathan Davis, like Moses Margoliouth, was a Hebrew Christian who accepted the support and training of the LSPCJ but was later impelled to criticise the society's modus operandi after gaining experience in Jewish missionary work.
