 Am Yisrael - Jewish Communities in Belgium
One of Belgium's oldest engineering schools, the "Institut Montefiore" in Liege (now part of the Universite de Liege), carries the name of Georges Montefiore-Levi (whose mother was a first cousin of the illustrious Sir Moses Montefiore), the inventor of phosphorus bronze and a pioneer of Belgium's nonferrous metals industry, as well as an active philanthropist.
The present incarnation of the country emerged in 1831 as a constitutional monarchy, out of the disaffection of Catholics with Dutch Protestant rule, of Liberals (the later secular humanists) with the "enlightened despot" manner of the Dutch king, and out of the desire of England and France to create a buffer state.
