At this Research Forum, Professor Israel Bartal (Hebrew University/Rutgers University) will discuss his new findings on the British Mission’s activity in the Russian Empire, 1816-1820. His talk on “’Who Are You Benjamin Nehemiah Solomon?’: British Missionaries in the 'Pale of Settlement', 1816-1820” promises to offer a new perspective on Russian-Jewish historiography.
