This review is from: Jewish London: A Comprehensive Guidebook for Visitors and Londoners (Paperback)
A lively,informative excellent and comprehensive guide. Great photos. Well worth reading , studying and doing the walks. It makes London Jewish history come alive. It also shows how wonderfully rich in history London is. It's up there with other well known London tour guides.

Bought 2 of these - one for my sister-in-law (for Christmas!) and one for myself. Really comprehensive, very clearly laid out, and extremely easy to consult. You don't have to be Jewsh to find this book useful! Good price too!

This review is from: Jewish London: A Comprehensive Guidebook for Visitors and Londoners (Paperback)
I received this book as a gift and actually did not give it much thought until shortly before a recent business to London. The knowledge and historical erudition of the authors is remarkable, yet they succeed also to provide a very accessible source of essential tourist information for the Jewish visitor. But I think this book also should be of considerable interest not only to Jewish readers, given the wealth of interesting, often fascinating, facts concerning London's Jewish community, past and present, and its profound and beneficial impact on the development of the capital.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a must!, 6 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Jewish London: A Comprehensive Guidebook for Visitors and Londoners (Paperback)
This is one of those wonderful books that totally lives up to what it says it says on the cover: "A comprehensive guidebook for visitors and Londoners". There are ideas for walks, wonderful photos and a wealth of information about the Jewish effect on our historic city. I do have one bone to pick with the authors (it's a salmon bone!) There's a chapter called "Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Bagels" when we all know it's beigels - the best beigels in London come from the Beigel Bake in Brick Lane!! Apart from that Rachel and Roslyn - take a bow.

5.0 out of 5 stars From the 'Settlement' to Stepney -, 14 Oct. 2014

This review is from: Jewish London: A Comprehensive Guidebook for Visitors and Londoners (Paperback)
Just to add my kopek's worth to previous greatly-deserved reviews. One of the treasures of this outstanding book is the underlining of the architectural and artistic Jewish contribution to the Capital. From the great synagogues and housing developments to Ronnie Scott's eponymous Jazz Club, ' Jewish London ' is a celebration of a community's gift to the body, mind and spirits of London's fellow citizens. This book is a true work of love and diligence - educational and evocative.
