Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Jewish community is the oldest ethnic minority in the country. This book tells the epic story of Jews in Britain over a thousand years. Many came as wealthy traders - others as desperate refugees. Sometimes they were feared and had to lead secret lives. At other times they stood shoulder to shoulder against threats to the British way of life, including the Nazis. The impact of Jewish culture on daily life, including words and food, as well as the contribution of notable Jewish businessmen, politicians and artists, is all highlighted.

Synopsis:

Michael Leventhal, journalist and history publisher, is the founder of the Jewish food charity Gefiltefest and the annual Gefiltefest London Jewish Food Festival.

Richard Goldstein, Jewish history educator and European tour guide, is Director of Operations at the Institute for Jewish Policy Research.
