the Jewish Religious Union of London

The Jewish Religious Union of London was founded in 1902 by it principal organizer, Lily Montagu, with Claude Montefiore as its most visible leader serving as its president. The members of the initial leadership committee, besides Montagu and Montefiore, were: Oswald Simon, Henrietta Franklin (Lily Montagu's eldest sister), Rabbi Simeon Singer and Rabbi A. A. Green (both Orthodox rabbis), Morris Joseph, Albert Jessel (an honorary officer of the United Synagogue), N.S. Joseph, and Isidore Spielman (President of the Jewish Historical Society, an ex-warden of the New West End Synagogue. (Jessel and, Spielman were also cousins of Lily Montagu.) Simeon Singer and Albert Jesel served as vice-presidents. The group's activities ultimately gave rise a decade later to the Liberal Jewish Synagogue of London.
