Epstein, published by Shengold Publishers, New York, by special arrangement with the author and
publishers.

Morris Epstein's essay on Moses
Montefiore -follows:
On a fall day in 1883, a very old
man sat hunched in a chair in a
huge house in Ramsgate, England.
A large velvet skullcap covered his
head and he scarcely seemed to
breathe.
A table held a stack of tele-
grams and letters. One of the tele-
grams had caused the old man to
pause. It was from Her Majesty,

Queen Victoria, and it read:
"To Sir Moses Montefiore: I
congratulate you on entering into
the 100th year of a useful and
honorable life. Victoria Regina.•'
Sir Moses closed his eyes and
thought back over the crowded
span of ninety-nine years. It had
been a full and happy life . . .
Born in Leghorn. Italy. in 1784,
to a family that traced its origin
to a small Italian town of the same

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

46—Friday, October 6, 1967

name, Moses Montefiore was taken
to England as an infant. His early
manhood was spent in a business
partnership with his brother Abra-
ham. By 1821, he had amassed
enough wealth to retire from the
Stock Exchange.
He turned to developing new
business enterprises and to help-
ing people. He visited the Holy
Land seven times, on each occasion
founding hospitals and schools and
aiding the poor. He bought land
for agricultural enterprises and
encouraged Jewish colonization. He
established the first girls' school
in Jerusalem.
He aided the Jews of Damascus
when they were falsely accused of
crimes, and visited the Sultan of
Morocco to plead for better treat-
ment of Moroccan Jews. Queen
Victoria knighted him in 1837 and
the same year he was elected
Sheriff of London.
Audiences had been granted to
him by the world's great — Queen
Victoria, Queen Isabella of Spain,
Napoleon III, the Shah of Persia,
the Khedive of Egypt, and many
others.
He had always remained a de-
vout Jew. He attended the syna-
gogue regularly. On his travels he
had his own cook and special
utensils.
A Tora Scroll traveled with him,
and on the Sabbath he wore a ring
engraved with the word "Jerusa-
lem." A beloved figure, his pic-
ture hung in Jewish homes the
world over.
On his birthdays, he would give
to public institutions sums of
money corresponding to his age,
and on the Sabbath, when he
handled no money, he would dis-
tribute meal-tickets to the needy.

The old man's eyes closed.
Moses fell asleep . .

Sir

Less than two years later, on
July 25, 1885, Sir Moses Monte-
fiore died. The Lord Mayor of
London reported to his Council
that "the most distinguished citi-
zen of London" had passed away.
Sir Moses had no children, but
the places and institutions that
bear his name — Zikhron Moshe
near Jerusalem, Sh'khunat Hospi-
tal near Tel Aviv, Montefiore Hos-
pital in New York, and others—
are a memorial to his name and
his noble deeds.
