Sir Moses Montefiore

Sir Moses Montefiore was a president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews from 1835–1874 and a member of London’s Bevis Marks Synagogue. He was a very well-known public figure and is mentioned in literature of the period such as in Charles Dicken’s diaries, George Elliot’s personal papers, and James Joyce’s Ulysses. In Israel, he is perhaps best known for building Mishkenot Sha’ananim, the first Jewish neighbourhood outside the walls of the Old City in Jerusalem.
