    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.

    Default Samuel Montagu, MP

    Hi all

    Here is an image of an 1886 cartoon of Liverpool-born Samuel Montagu, MP for Tower Hamlets in the East End of London, who made a fortune in banking and was related to the Liverpool jewellers Samuel and Son (see separate thread on Samuel Montagu, First Lord Swaythling).

    It's a shame they've hidden most of it away.
    I've got a 1980s shot, somewhere - it had been closed for years even then.

    Default Galkoff`s Kosher Butcher`s 1907-2007 has been listed by EH

    I hear the wonderful Galkoff`s Kosher Butcher`s shop in Pembroke Place, Liverpool 3 has finally been listed by English Heritage after resusing to do so twice. A well deserved pat on the back to the young man who has been struggling for nearly 20 years to preserve and protect the property....and he is apparently not even Jewish. These Liverpudilians don`t give up do they.

    There are some information hoardings around Galkoffs at the moment. There were too many cars whizzing past to take any pics, but the hoardings duplicate the distinctive tiles which are on the building. I read recently in the Echo that the hoardings give a history of Jews in Liverpool.

    Nice to hear the building will be protected. I'll wait to hear more.

    Default Chicken Soup and Scouse

    Film about city's Jewish community
    Dec 14 2007
    by Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo

    A FILM about Liverpool’s Jewish community has inspired a new exhibition at St George’s Hall.

    Chicken Soup and Scouse tells the story of the city’s Jewish population, from the 1700s to the present day.

    It is based on a 75-minute documentary of the same name by Liverpool filmmaker Michael Swerdlow and his brother-in-law Arnold Lewis, with financial assistance from the Culture Company’s Creative Communities fund.

    The documentary examined how and why Jews came to Liverpool, and how the community became one of the most successful and influential in the UK.

    Liverpool’s Jewish community can trace its ties with St George’s Hall back over 100 years.

    In February 1874 the community held a three-day bazaar in the Great Hall, which was secured for the sum of £67.

    The hall was also hired later that year for a grand banquet to mark the opening of Princes Road Synagogue.

    Cllr Warren Bradley, leader of Liverpool council and deputy chairman of the Liverpool Culture Company, said: “Liverpool is a city famed for its religious and ethnic diversity, and it is important that we recognise the role that our many communities have played in shaping the vibrant and cosmopolitan Liverpool that we see today.”

    The exhibition will run for an indefinite period in the new heritage centre, which is open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm. Admission is free.

    For more information visit www.chickensoupandscouse.com.
