VG ** "...There were many agencies working among the Jews, each with different theological emphases, but the oldest, largest and best-resourced was the London Society for Promoting Christianity among the Jews, also known as the London Jews Society (LJS). Founded in 1809. In 1813 LJS activities transferred to Cambridge Heath in Bethnal Green, where the Episcopal Jews' Chapel (for Christian worship) and schools for Jewish children were established. A printing press to provide employment for converts had been set up in 1811, and later they were taught bookbinding at the separately-run 'Operative Jewish Converts' Institution' (1831, later an industrial home). The site was named 'Palestine Place' in 1836..." - See St George In The East Church, Canon Street, London.
