The Rev. C.H. Gill, Secretary of the Church Mission to the Jews, speaking this week at a meeting in Bedford said that everywhere there is a stirring among the Jews towards Christianity. In Poland, the children of the leading families of the Jews were being taught in Christian schools and good work was being done in this way. In Hungary, 300,000 Jews had been baptised in the last three years. Lenin on his deathbed had practically ordered a massacre of the Jews. He felt sure a massacre would take place. This would lead to the Jews flocking to Palestine, and the Church Mission to the Jews hoped to assist in the preparation for them in Palestine.
