Stepney…the ‘posher’ part of the Old Jewish Quarter

with Stephen Burstin

Walks & Trips

See the remnants of a major synagogue -  including the amazingly retained sacred ark – in its startling new setting of a luxury apartment block;  visit the very spot where a young Winston Churchill directed an infamous siege against Jewish anarchists;  gaze at the secret 300-year-old Jewish cemetery hidden within an astonishing modern setting;  learn how Jewish owners of a small Jewellery shop, stood up to powerful land developers and see the amazing consequences;  and there are lots more wondrous sights. Discover why a dedicated group fought tooth and nail to build a Jewish hospital; how the Jewish leadership in Stepney distanced its flock from the poorer Jewish parts of the East End;  why one rabbi flouted Jewish authority by adding ‘Zionist’ to the title of his synagogue.
