This book, printed in Jerusalem, is a biography of the British Zionist and Jewish activist, Herbert Bentwich. It has interesting vignettes of late Victorian middle-class London Jewry.
Herbert Bentwich was born at 56 Church Lane, Whitechapel on May 11th 1856. His father came from Peiser in Russian Poland. His mother, Rose, came from an old established Anglo-Jewish family and was the daughter of Godfrey Levy of Bedford.
The extracts that I have scanned relate to the St John’s Wood Synagogue, the founding of the Hampstead Synagogue, and the founding of the Chovavei Zion (The Lovers of Zion) in Britain.
Herbert Bentwich died on Shabbos, June 25th 1932, in Rehavia, Jerusalem.
