Current Contents of this Database:

Jewish Directory for 1874, compiled by Asher I. Myers, editor of the London Jewish Chronicle (published by Asher I. Myers and Philip Vallentine).
This novel 1874 publication, intended to be the first edition of periodic publications of a similar name, was never repeated and was published more than two decades prior to the first Jewish Year Book. It contains a complete list of metropolitan and provincial synagogues, Jewish schools, associations, charitable and other institutions, societies, etc., with names and addresses of all persons holding official positions (honorary or salaried) in the Anglo-Jewish community and other interesting information.

The data has been extracted by Louise Messik and David Shulman and includes the names and (in most instances) the addresses of every person listed in the Directory, being the then leaders of the Jewish communities and congregations in the UK and employees of Jewish communal organisations (including the staff of Jewish schools), together with details of all offices held by each person. The database comprises 1,810 individuals holding an aggregate of nearly 3,400 offices in approximately 230 Jewish organisations spread throughout London and over 40 cities and towns in the Provinces.
