Modern British Jewry

Geoffrey Alderman

Oxford University Press

The world of emancipated British Jewry was turned upside down by the waves of immigration of Jews from Russia and eastern Europe that beat upon the shores of Britain in the quarter-century following the assassination of Tsar Alexander II. There was no facet of Anglo–Jewish life which was not affected by this immigration, just as there was no communal institution which could avoid responding, positively or negatively, to its imperatives. Ultimately, the State itself was compelled to take notice. The Jewish immigrants changed the shape of the British polity as surely as they changed the structure of British Jewry: the Jewish experience and the British experience merged and affected each other in a manner far more central than that offered by emancipation itself.
