A Thousand Years of Jewish Life in and around Berkshire
For almost a thousand years Jews have been living in the Royal County, starting as individual traders, later becoming war-time evacuees and now the thriving community that exists today in Maidenhead.
They range from the bomber pilot to the Michelin-starred chef, from the ground-breaking single mother to the controversial radio broadcaster, from the society confidante to the child rescuer. This is their story.
A surprising number of famous names litter the pages, as well as hundreds of others who quietly made their mark.
It is a record of Jewish life across the centuries, and of continuity against the odds, that has not been told before.
Royal Jews (396pp and 109 illustrations) costs £15.99. It can be purchased from Maidenhead Synagogue: firstname.lastname@example.org or click here.
