About the event

During the 18th and 19th centuries Islington had one of the largest Jewish populations in England. Discover the borough's Jewish history with our expert guide Rabbi Mendy.

The tour includes important sites of the historic Jewish community, including where the North London Synagogue once stood. We will talk about the wide range of characters, where they came from, where they lived, where they worshipped, and what happened to them. A rich cast of politicians, founders of business empires, inventors, mathematicians, artists, architects, writers, eccentrics, and villains is promised – not forgetting the many people with more ordinary lives who made up the community.

Meeting place in Islington will be provided on booking.
