Walking History Tour

Join us for a walking tour around Islington led by by Rabbi Mendy Korer, where we will have the opportunity to learn about the Jewish history of the area.

During the 18th and 19th centuries Islington had one of the largest Jewish populations in England. We will talk about the wide range of characters, where they came from, where they lived, where they worshipped, and what happened to them. A rich cast of politicians, founders of business empires, inventors, mathematicians, artists, architects, writers, eccentrics, and villains is promised – not forgetting the many people with more ordinary lives who made up the community.

The start point would be Newington Green and we will end at Piacha on Upper St (where participants can chat over a tea and rest their legs). The total distance is 2.8 miles and should take around 1 hour of walking with stops on the way to explain different things.

A map of the route can be found further down this page.
