This richly illustrated book presents outstanding objects from the collections of the Jewish Museum London, including its ceremonial art, designated of national importance. Its specialist essays from experts in the field, covering a range of media, describe the history of Jewish people in Britain and the festivals and ceremonies of Jewish religious life. Silver, textiles, manuscripts, life cycle objects, prints and drawings are used to illustrate the themes. Key historical themes include the Jewish East End, refugees from Nazism, and the diverse patterns of Jewish migration to Britain, illustrated by examples from the Museum's social history collections. This is the first major publication on the treasures of the Jewish Museum, London, for more than thirty years and it offers a fresh overview of the collections and an assessment of their place in a broader artistic and historical context.
