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.

We were there - read our report.
Reader Harold Pollins has sent in a fascinating article he researched on the Netherlands club in Bell Lane. It includes historic photographs provided by Jeecs member Philip Walker. Here it is: Netherlands Club
You may also be interested in our quest to trace relatives/survivors of the 1943 Bethnal Green Tube disaster. A Memorial Service for the victims will take place on Sunday March 3 at 2pm at St. John on Bethnal Green Church (next door to Bethnal Green underground station) and all are welcome. There will be wreath and flower laying on the Memorial for the first time, with representatives from different faiths giving blessings for the victims.
