Ever wondered about the connection between Benjamin Disraeli's and Islington? Islington had a significant Jewish population going well back into the 18th century. Petra Laidlaw, from the Islington Archaeology and History Society will be presenting her latest book, talking 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.

Time: 7:30pm
Location: Islington Town Hall, Room 4
Refreshments will be served
Host: Chabad-Lubavitch of Islington

Copies of The Jewish Communities of Islington, 1730s-1880s by Petra Laidlaw will be available on the night: £9.99 paperback, 138 pp, sourced and indexed, with 37 black and white prints and photographs.
