Detailed Description   

Notes from a private journal of a visit to Egypt and Palestine, by way of Italy and the Mediterranean. [Lady Judith Cohen Montefiore, d. 1862]

A personal impression of Lady Montefiore from her travels in the Levant, published anonymously and dedicated to her husband. Judith Cohen Montefiore was known for her social influence and generosity throughout the Jewish community. She married Moses Montefiore in 1812, and together they became two of the most well known members of the Jewish elite. While they participated in the upper-class Christian society in London, they also spent much of their time and earnings on Jewish causes. The Montefiores helped to fund the first settlement for farming in Israel. The couple traveled to Israel several times and were always well received on their visits there.
