Moses Margoliouth 1820-188
Dr. Moses Margoliouth was born at Suwalki in 1820, and died in London, 1881. He was no relation to Ezekiel Margoliouth, though from the same town. He arrived in Liverpool in 1837 and met the Jewish missionaries Lazarus and H. S. Joseph. Following discussion with them, he came to faith in 1838.
