Welcome to the Jewish East End Celebration Society
Our aim is to raise awareness of the history and culture of London's Jewish East End, to preserve what remains and record what has now gone. Our quarterly magazine - The Cable - contains a wealth of articles and photos that will interest all who wish to rediscover the rich history of our immigrant forefathers. We organise walks, talks, film shows and more to celebrate the Jewish story. Do please join JEECS by clicking membership, downloading and filling in the form, and returning it to the address shown. You can also follow us on twitter and join us on facebook. A point of concern has been the state of Bancroft Road cemetery.
