Walking tours organized by Chabad and led by Chabad Rabbi Mendy
During the 18th and 19th centuries London’s Islington borough had one of the largest Jewish populations in England. Discover the borough’s Jewish history.
The tour includes important sites of the historic Jewish community, including where the North London Synagogue once stood. You will find out about a 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.
Meeting place in Islington will be provided on booking.

Edmund de Waal is an internationally acclaimed artist and writer, renowned for his family memoir, The Hare with Amber Eyes (2010) which won many literary prices. He was made an OBE for his services to art in 2011. He lives and works in London.
