Leeds and its Jewish Community – Book Launch

Join us for the launch of this  definitive and comprehensive history of the third largest Jewish community in the UK which explores the influence the city had on the community and the impact the community has made on the life of Leeds.

The book builds on previous local studies and is based on original research by its 13 authors to provide a thorough and up to date contribution to urban and Jewish history. It combines detailed narrative with acute analysis, which reveals to the reader the fascinating story of social and economic transformation in a modern city.

Jonathan Straight will be in conversation with the book’s editor Dr Derek Fraser and a panel of authors of the various chapters
The book will be on sale during the evening
