Synagogues at Risk? Why British Jews need Jewish Heritage
There is more to British Jewry than North London and the East End as Sharman Kadish’s expanded guidebook Jewish Heritage in Britain and Ireland demonstrates. Kadish presents the wealth of historic synagogues and sites across the country and celebrates over 350 years since Jews returned to the British Isles. This event will no doubt spur you to go on a (Jewish) expedition of your own. Sharman Kadish is in conversation with UCL professor Michael Berkowitz.
Sharman Kadish is founder and director of Jewish Heritage UK. Her books include the monograph Bolsheviks and British Jews and she has lectured at the universities of London and Manchester.
Michael Berkowitz is Professor of Modern Jewish History at UCL. His scholarship deals with modern Jewish identity formation and political self-representation. His current work is on the engagement of Jews with photography.
