SUNDAYS@SWESRS – Guided walk: The Old Jewry
Sunday October 27 @ 11:00 am
With our member and London tour guide Eleanor Bloom, follow the trail of an area within the City of London where Jews, brought to England by William 1 after 1066, where compelled to live. Until their expulsion under the reign of Edward I in November 1290 they lived under strict control and were used for jobs that Christians were forbidden to do. Within a few streets, an entire community of about 6,000 Jews was established, with bath houses, synagogues, a slaughterhouse and burial ground.
