Between 1880 and 1939, a quarter of a million European Jews settled in England. Tananbaum explores the differing ways in which the existing Anglo-Jewish communities, local government and education and welfare organizations sought to socialize these new arrivals, focusing on the experiences of working-class women and children.


"Tananbaum focuses on the local sphere of London life. (…) she provides a fresh perspective on the story of the various communal institutions which sought to “improve” the lives of the Jewish poor in London, covering, variously, public health, communal networks, education – both secular and religious – clubs and settlement houses, and so on."

- Laura Vaughan, UCL, UK
