The Complete Jewish guide to Britain and Ireland is the only resource for everything you need to know to embark on a trip through Jewish Great Britain. Travel writer and journalist Toni Kamins catalogs information on well-known sights and little-known treasures as varied as the beautiful Moorish West London Synagogue, the Manchester Mikveh, the lost Jewish Cemeteries of Glasgow, and the Jewish Museum of Dublin, as well as transportation, lodging information, and places to buy kosher food. Selected photographs and maps fill out the picture.
Kamins also recounts nearly one thousand years of related history-from the first appearance of Jews on the British Isles following the Norman Conquest, through the Crusades and the Expulsion, to the Restoration and up to the present day. She focuses on the turbulent and captivating histories of England, Scotland, and Ireland through the prism of the Jewish experience. The Complete Jewish Guide to Britain and Ireland has everything you will need to make your trip a success-and put it into a historical context that will make it even more worthwhile.
