Detail Description

A. T.: Sichron Mosche contains records from the biography of the late Sir ...Moses Montefiore, composed by the Rev. S. D. Meierowitz

Sir Moses is best described by Dr. Loewe in the final paragraph of the Sir and Lady's diaries. He sums up the importance and achievments of this historical Jewish couple's efforts for their brethen over the span of the 19th century: "The impartial reader of these Memoirs, in closing the book, and recalling to his mind the varied scenes portraying the life and work of Sir Moses and Lady Montefiore, and the moral to be derived therefrom, will acknowledge that the practice of justice, truth, and virtue towards his fellow-beings, and staunch loyalty to the Sovereign, will ensure an ample reward. At the same time, he cannot fail to contemplate with intense admiration the life's work of the hero of a hundred years, who fought so sturdily in youth the battle of life, and who afterwards devoted himself with such unwearying ardour to the task of combating hatred, persecution, and fanaticism, of severing the bonds of physical and moral slavery, and of aiding in the establishment of religious toleration all over the world. His unparalleled devotion to the sacred cause of humanity in general, and the unclouded halo of a spotless integrity which encircles his name, will ever afford a splendid example for emulation no less than the dauntless courage with which he set to work for the rescue of the suffering and the oppressed, whilst the bright guiding stars which lighted all his actions were the fear of G-d on high and deeds of charity and loving kindness on earth."
