This shift is part of a process of renewal in the community that has led to something of a ‘Jewish renaissance' in Britain.Addressing key questions on the transitions in the history of Anglo-Jewish community and leadership, and tackling the concept of the ‘new antisemitism', this important and timely study addresses the question: how has UK Jewry adapted from a shift from monoculturalism to multiculturalism?...

    Good overview of recent developments within the British Jewish community. Largely an analysis of the key institutions within Anglo-Jewry and the tensions within and between them, but also has a useful chapter on the discourse of 'new antisemitism'.

    A good survey of organisations and ideas in recent years. A helpful addition to the detailed study of religion in Britain.
