    Default Liverpool Jewish Community

    Some of the famous Liverpudlian Jewish people are:

    · Brian Epstein, manager of the 60s legends the Beatles.

    · David Lewis Levy, who started department store Lewis' in the mid 19th century.

    · Prof Sir Henry Cohen, from a poor immigrant family, who became one of the Queen's doctors.

    A Number of Firsts:

    The first sermon to be delivered in English in a synagogue took place in Liverpool in the early 19th century.

    The first provincial representative to the Board of Deputies of British Jews was elected by Seel Street Synagogue in 1839.

    The first Hebrew Day School (now King David Primary School) outside London set up in 1841.

    I was a Sabath Goy when I was a kid. I would light the fires on a Saturday in a number of Jewish homes. I would get a tanner a fire except Mrs Banawitch (pronounced Banavitch) never did get around to paying me. She always claimed that she would give it to my Gran after "Shabath" but never did. I once had a girlfriend named Libba Cohen who lived on Paddington, she was the least othordox of any Jew I have known, eating pork, ham and bacon and was definitely none kosher. She joined the Israeli army. Go figure.
