Jewish Manchester: An Illustrated History narrates and interprets the development of the Jewish community from its foundation in the 1780s to the present day. This embraces the earliest Jewish settlers (all of them ex-pedlars) and immigration from Germany in the earky 19th century, from Eastern Europe after 1840, and from Nazi Europe in the 1930s.
The book seeks to emphasise the links between demographic and social change in the evolution of communal institutions in what remains the largest Jewish community in provincial Britain.
The book will be essential reading for everyone who is interested in the Jewish community and in the cultural diversity of Manchester and Britain.
