Montefiore, Claude (1858–1938). English leader of Progressive Judaism. He founded in England a radical form of Reform Judaism, known as Liberal Judaism, which was centred on the Liberal Jewish Synagogue in London. He espoused the ‘many paths, one goal’ view of religions, and also the view that Paul was the source of the Christian hatred of the Jew.
