1. 2 week offer: "Achim Acharim" for free within State of Israel!
Our book "Achim Acharim" (Hebrew) will be sent to anyone who requests it anywhere within the
State of Israel for nothing.  This offer will remain valid for the next two weeks and perhaps
beyond that.

PART TWO
V. The Response of Jewry and an American Interlude
 http://www.britam.org/vision/koblerpart2.html#Response
Extract:
     Then, early in the nineteenth century, the Restoration Movement found its perfect Jewish partner, not in England but in the English-speaking community on the American continent, where an offshoot of the British Movement was in the making since the eighteenth century. In his History of Redemption, Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), America's great reformer and philosopher, expressed the hope that "in future glorious times, both Judah and Ephraim (shall be brought together and shall be united as one People". Hannah Adams (1755-1831), the first woman to become a restorationist writer, had no doubt of the ultimate, reunion of Israel with its land. Her History of the Jews, published in 1812, appeared in London in 1818. In the same year, John McDonald, Pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Albany, published a tract Isaiah's Message to the American People, in which he argued that the "messenger people" chosen to realise the Restoration of the Jews was the American nation and that the time for this was at hand.
These
restorationist documents are strongly related to the religious current which in the Revolutionary War led to a revival of the Puritan spirit displayed 150 years earlier in the Great Revolution. If Oliver Cromwell identified himself and his army with the Maccabees, the fighters for Independence regarded themselves as "God's American Israel" led by the "American Joshua", George Washington.

Part Three: THE GREAT CHANCE: THE EASTERN QUESTION
I. LORD SHAFTESBURY AND THE HEYDAY OF THE MOVEMENT
Extract:
It was he who, in 1838, had taken the initiative in opening the British Consulate in Jerusalem and upon whose suggestion Lord Palmerston, in his instructions to the newly appointed Vice-Consul, W. T. Young, declared it to be part of his consular duty "to afford protection to the Jews generally". The policy consistently followed by the office throughout the 76 years of its existence not only helped to promote the welfare of the Jewish population in Palestine but also created a personal link between Britain and the Jewish people at large.
On September 29, 1838,
Shaftesbury wrote in his diary, "The ancient city of the people of God is about to resume a place among the nations, and England is the first of the Gentile kingdoms that ceases `to tread her down'."  Inspired by Lord Lindsay's travel book (see p. 58) he wrote a thirty-page article, State and Prospects of the Jews, which was published in the Quarterly Review of January-March 1839. In it Shaftesbury vigorously opposed the attempts of various sovereigns to amalgamate the Jews with the bulk of their subjects. The wrong done to the Jews by the nations, he concluded, could be expiated only by their Restoration, and England was destined, and getting ready, to bring about such a solution.
