Title:
The Jew in the eruv, the Jew in the Suburb: Contesting the public face and the private space of British Jewry
Authors:
Ewence, Hannah
Abstract:
Has cultural intolerance of Jews (and other minorities) in modern-day Britain led many Jews to prefer societal 'invisibility'? This chapter questions how such a discourse has played out through Jewish spatial practices and the British-Jewish presentation of those spatial practices, from the immigrant 'ghetto' of the fin de siècle East End to heated debates around the construction of an eruv in north-west London in recent decades.
