Printed by Wertheimer and Col,, Circus Place, Finsbury Circus, London 1854 - OCLC: Libraries worldwide that own item: 3. Letters to and from Sir Moses Montefiore, Chief Rabbi Adler, and the representatives rabbis from the Holy Land's four Holy Cities. Modern wrappers. 8vo. A pastoral letter by Chief Rabbi Nathan Adler addressed to the Jews of the British Empire and North America and issued at the urging of Sir Moses Montefiore. THe Crimean War (1853-1856) had wrought havoc in Palestine as the indigent Jews there, verging on starvation, were cut off from the flow of alms that prmarily stemmed from their co-religionists in Russia. As a consequence, Jerusalem Consul James Finn and his wife set up a network of Evangelical Christian provision to provide relief. This Sir Moses found unacceptable and hence he spearheaded this charitable campaign that was to spread across the Jewish world. In time, what became known as the Holy Land Relief Fund, proved to be enormously successful . See Abigail Green, Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero (2010), pages232-236.
