Title : Online Jewish missions history project

Description :
The Online Jewish Missions History Project offers a collection of 90 documents relating to Christian missionary activity among Jewish people in North America and the UK in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The documents include newspaper articles (in particular, a large number of pieces from the New York Times) and reports and other publications issued by churches and missionary organisations. The majority are American in origin, with a few from Scotland or London. A significant number of documents relate to the rather turbulent career of Hermann Warszawiak, a Jewish convert to Christianity who himself became a missionary in America. While most of the works accessible through the site are texts (mostly available in both HTML and Word formats), a few images are also included. The documents can be browsed in a number of different ways (by title, creator, date, format, and so forth), and there is a sophisticated search function. This resource is hosted on the website of the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism.
