The Susser Archives

Rabbi Dr Bernard Susser

Rabbi Dr Bernard Susser and Mrs Judith Samuel at the launch of his book "The Jews of Devon & Cornwall" in Exeter Synagogue, 1993

The documents and papers of the late Rabbi Dr Bernard Susser, historian of the Jews of South West England, together with his computer disks, had been placed in the care of Frank Gent of the Exeter Synagogue. He extracted the data from Rabbi Susser's disks, and published these, in honour of Rabbi Susser's memory and his work for the Jews of South West England, both present and past. Frank Gent has now donated this information to JCR-UK

The majority of the original documents and papers have now been deposited by Frank Gent at the Devon Record Office.  If you need to refer to the original papers, then contact the Devon Record office http://www.devon.gov.uk/record_office.htm in the first instance, as they should be able to confirm that they hold the specific material that you are seeking and will also let you know if you need any permissions before viewing the materials.

(In taking these pages for redesign, which have been on line for the past ten years or so in their original incarnation, I have attempted to keep as many as possible in their original format.  However many of the documents were processed by OCR and a number of mistakes occurred and  have corrected these errors.  I have also made some data easier to follow by incorporating it into tables.  The process of redesigning and formatting all the pages in the mammoth Susser folder will take time but I will upload them section by section as they are completed. Unfortunately very few of these important writings are dated.
