Celebrating the Jewish East End

Our aim is to increase awareness of the history and culture of London's Jewish East End, to preserve what remains and record what has now gone.  Our 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.

Latest issue out now. Photography by Boris; A Hughes Mansions victim’s life uncovered; Policing the East End; Memories of a world of shared poverty; Experiences of a pioneering generation – and much more.
