There is a famous Rev Moses Margoliouth who was born in Suwalki in NE Poland and came to Britain in 1837. He was an academic who converted to Christianity but in 1845 he gave a series of six lectures on the history of the Jews of England  at my father's old school in Liverpool. Most of his academic life seemed to be centred on Judaism and he spoke many languages. He ended up in Dublin, but he also had a famous nephew who was an academic at Oxford University who specialised in arabic topics.
