Chapter Summary

During the early 1880s widespread publicity was given in Britain to the work of Joseph ben David Rabinowitz who founded an independent Jewish Christian congregation in Kishinev, capital of the province of Bessarabia in south-western Russia. In April 1901 a new organisation, the Hebrew Christian Alliance, was established by those who had withdrawn from the Hebrew Christian Prayer Union. An attempt should be made to dissolve "freelance societies" and to prevent Jewish converts from evangelising independently without the supervision of the Church of England. Theological justification for the retention by Hebrew Christians of traditional Jewish customs was provided by the Jewish Christian writer and bible expositor Dr. Aaron Adolf Saphir who supported Jewish missions, particularly the BSPGJ, and advocated the establishment of a national Jewish church.
