The Jewish Year Book 2012
Edited by: Levy, Elkan; Taylor, Derek
For over 115 years, readers have been referring to the Jewish Year Book for information regarding Britain's Jewish community - the institutions, the organizations, the charities, contact details, and a who's who of personalities. The Jewish Year Book 2012 also provides details on: dates that matter in the Jewish calendar, award winners, anniversaries, obituaries, an overview of the position of Jews in countries outside Britain, happenings in Israel, the 2012 festivals and Sabbaths all over the country, and a 30-year Jewish calendar. Included in this volume are a series of articles which look back over the year gone by and the centuries gone by, with: Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks on the progress of the community over recent years * Derek Taylor on Shechitah * Clive Lawton on Limmud * Peter Lee on the 250th anniversary of the Plymouth Synagogue * Cecil Bloom on Jewish libraries in Leeds * a 75th-anniversary article on the opening of Thompsons Lane synagogue in Cambridge * a 75th-anniversary article on the Council of Christians and Jews.
