This is one of more than 310 photocopy exhibits from Elizabeth Dilling's The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today

Exhibit 271

Exhibit 271 image This exhibit is taken from The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today by Elizabeth Dilling.

The underlining and margin notes are Dilling's, on documents holographically reproduced in her book.

Text of the 1901-1906 Jewish Encyclopedia

NOTE: We have been using the 1906 edition of the Jewish Encyclopedia for these exhibits. Elizabeth Dilling used the 1905 edtion. Thought the differences are rare and not noticeable elsewhere, a careful reader may notice the reordering of paragraphs and addition of a sentence in this exhibit. The greater breadth of text included here should make clear the intention of the JE writers and editors.

It is interesting that the same exhibit page in the popularly available edition of Dilling's book, The Plot Against Christianity, omits the second paragraph shown here, and fills the space with more text from the second paragraph in Exhibit 272.

This exhibit is discussed in Dilling's text on page 3.
