The Anglican Mission and the Jews in Morocco in the 19th Century
Eliezer Bashan

Deals with the Anglican missionaries, most of whom were converts from Judaism, and the methods they used to convert Jews. Their task was facilitated by the poverty that prevailed, particularly in times of drought. The number of converts was small thanks to measures taken by Jewish leadership and society, such as the excommunication of anyone who came into contact with Christians and of parents who sent their children to Christian schools. Based on sources such as missionaries' diaries and archival material from the British Foreign Office. Twenty documents are published here for the first time.
