The perfect companion for discovering Jewish London through the ages

Whether you visit Golders Green with its bagel and falafel bars, Stamford Hill with its growing Orthodox community, Spitalfields with its memories of the Jewish East End, the City to trace civic emancipation through the lives of 19th-century financiers or stroll through leafy NW3 in the footsteps of refugees fleeing Europe in the 1930s, this book is for both visitors and residents. It is a comprehensive guide to Jewish London past and present.

Divided into 11 chapters, the book includes Jewish London on Foot, a series of walking tours located in the East End, Central London and Hampstead. Each walk has a route map and clear directions, as well as informative text that will bring London s Jewish heritage to life.

Jewish London Today takes a look at contemporary Jewish London, providing listings for cafés and restaurants, shops, hotels, synagogues and religious amenities in the main Jewish areas within close proximity to Central London.

There are also chapters on exploring places of Jewish interest off the main tourist trail, an in-depth look at the Jewish Museum, features on Holocaust memorials, art and artists, literature and film, a calendar of cultural events and festivals and a chapter with suggested day trips from London.
