The Jews of England

Friday 17 April 2020, 10.00AM to 12.00pm

Despite initially encountering intolerance and prejudice, the Jews have been one of the most dynamic and successful minorities to settle in England, making outstanding contributions in most areas of our national life. This course will examine the successive phases of Anglo-Jewish history, commencing with the medieval community (expelled in 1290), proceeding to their readmission (1656), and analysing their struggle for emancipation and prosperity throughout the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
