There they meet and soon come to share a common bond of concern for the plight of the people of Whitechapel and Stepney Green.  . " 6 The Palace's purpose was to sow discontent among the East Enders, to shake them out of their dull and perfectly contented lives.  If Angela Messenger ever had a faithful disciple it was surely Israel Zangwill.

Because, ultimately, no essential principles were involved, and the immigrants were not challenging the US so much as ignoring it, he felt that the most effective approach was to allow, and even assist, the immigrants to establish congregations along lines they preferred but under the financial, and ultimately political, tutelage of Anglo­Jewry. 46 That is, the goal was social, not religious.  The central preoccupation of the Machzike Hadath and Rabbi Werner was the quality of kashrut of meat sold under the Board of Shechita supervision.

The Jews were to be granted equality as individual citizens, and the kehilla, as repository of Jewish autonomy, was to be eliminated. 3 Thus what was gained by the Jew as individual was at the cost of Jew as member of a distinctive people within the nation­state.  The price, its precise significance unappreciated and its consequences obscure, was deemed well worth the proffered advantages.  Although there was intense dissension among the reformers, violent disagreement over exactly what constituted the essentials of the Jewish heritage, all agreed that at least some modernizations and modifications were desirable.
