the 9th of August , was a proud day for the Jews of Birmingham [England],
as it witnessed the laying of the first stone of a Hebrew national school for
the benefit of the Israelitish children of that town. The occasion drew
together a large concourse of Jewish and Christian gentlemen, and the dinner
which was given after the conclusion of the ceremonies of the day was presided
over by the Mayor of Birmingham, James James, Esq. It gives us pleasure to
record such an act of liberality, whilst we are compelled, as above, to condemn
an opposite proceeding on the part of some of our own townsmen.
Moses Montefiore laid the first stone, and the religious exercises were
conducted by the Rev. J. Barnett, Rev. D. A. De Sola, Rev. J. L. Lindenthal, of
London, Rev. David M. Isaacs, of Liverpool, assisted by the Rev. Dr. Raphael
and the Rev. Lewis Chapman, of Birmingham.
