This is a study of the classic period of London's Jewish East End. It describes the circumstances of its formation, its geographical and social boundaries, and such organizations as the remarkable Jewish trade unions, the myriad of friendly societies, burial societies, charities, schools, and various religious and political groups. It analyzes the economic basis of the community, its doctrinal and liturgical aspects, festivals, entertainments, housing and food, shops and businesses. The book discusses in some depth the external factors: anti-Semitism, Socialism and Zionism.
