This chapter distinguishes analytically between Jewish welfare at the level of the entire community in the sense of either the DIG in Hamburg or the Manchester congregations on the one side, and on the other the multitude of smaller Jewish welfare associations that are an element of the buoyant Jewish associational life in both cities. It notes that in the case of Hamburg, many of these associations only developed in the second half of the 19th century when the community-wide system had already been in place for some decades. It further notes that the smaller Manchester Jewry was content with a relief system on the level of individual congregations until the 1860s; its associational life developed parallel to a centralized communal welfare organization in the second half of the century.

Keywords:   Jewish welfare associations, DIG in Hamburg, Manchester congregations, relief system
