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.

In Association with English Heritage.
