Modern British Jewry

Both in numbers and in economic status the Jews of London exercised the preponderating influence in ordering the affairs of British Jewry. Until the very end of the 19th century provincial Jewries were not only small in absolute numbers, but much less well endowed in terms of infrastructure and personnel. Yet it was, perhaps, for this very reason that they could sometimes be fiercely independent, resisting subordination to the capital by refusing to bestow support — and hence legitimacy — upon the institutions and initiatives which emanated from their London coreligionists.
