As you can see, the biggest names in Jewish scholarship in England were all there and had something to say; Solomon Schechter, Elkan Nathan Adler, etc. Israel Abrahams opined that the Jews had been accused of using blood to cure some kind of skin disease, and the Jews in turn accused Pharaoh of using blood of Jewish children for the same purpose (Sefer Hayashar). Michael Friedlander replied that the negative words about the Egyptians were said by the victims whom they oppressed, while it was the Christians who oppressed the Jews, and not the reverse.
The review did not state what the reaction to Abrahams remark was in the audience. But someone wrote a letter and tells us that it provoked great . . . hissing.
The same issue also features a letter from one Annie Schwabe about "Ladies as Minyan-Men."
