A prayer and request for the success of "Sir Moses Montefiore" and his wife prior to his departure to meet with kings and counts on behalf of the Jewish people. It seems this prayer before us was composed before his visit to Rome in an attempt to assist the Mortara family whose six year old son Edgar was secretly baptized by their servant and kidnapped by Catholic priests against his parents' wishes.
