History of the Great Synagogue

by Cecil Roth

Published 1950

The Great Synagogue in 1809 (from Ackerman's Microcosm of London)

 

Introduction 

The History of the Great Synagogue

This book is an essential source for the study of Anglo-Jewish history. It is now a very rare volume, and has been out of print for almost half a century. I am making it available for the benefit of all those who are researching Anglo-Jewish history and family history, and who are unable to make use of Dr Roth's great scholarship.
