Jews in Britain

by Michael Leventhal Richard Goldstein - £8.99  Shire Publications Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747812302 | ISBN 10: 0747812306

This book tells the epic thousand-year story of Britain’s Jewish community, the country’s oldest minority group, replete with the dark episodes of persecution and expulsion, but also with positive periods of acceptance and toleration. Some Jews came as wealthy traders, others as desperate refugees; some had to lead secret lives, and others in different times stood shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the nation against threats to the British way of life, which included the Nazis.
 
The impact of Jewish culture on daily life – on language, on food, on religion, art and business – has been inestimable, and this book is a fully illustrated introduction and fitting tribute.
