Additional Details

An address given at the New York Tabernacle to an audience of Christians and Jews, anticipating the Zionist movement. "Devoted entirely to the subject of the return of the Jews to the Holy Land. Essentially, it was a lengthy appeal to Christians, based on Christian theology and liberal morality, for their support in the endeavor to have the Holy Land designated for Jewish settlement," though he urges that "Jews must be active participants in the process"--Waxman, American Aliya, page 57. Rosenbach 574; Singerman 0913.
