“For those planning to visit London a recommended companion is a new guide book, Jewish London… From the city’s famous East End, to little-known areas with a Jewish connection, to famous personages, to synagogues and cemeteries, it’s all here… Visitors wishing to get a sense of Jewish London and to explore neighborhood byways will appreciate the walking tours, with maps and directions that are clear and include enough detail to make them easy to follow. Most conveniently, they all start and end near a tube station…. Rachel Kolsky is a tour guide who specializes in Jewish heritage tours, and co-author Roslyn Rawson is an attorney and writer with an interest in Jewish history and culture… It’s a winning combination for both the London visitor and the armchair traveler… The authors also enable thematic and historical explorations of, for example, Holocaust memorials and Judaica… It’s all enhanced by beautiful photos… The authors seem to have traced every Jewish echo in London… Jewish London offers the key.” – Chicago Jewish Star
