Founded in 1841, the Jewish Chronicle was instrumental in forming the shape of Jewish identity and encouraging the development of modern Anglo-Jewry. It quickly became an essential part of the community and an influence on its culture and politics, as it increasingly covered aspects of Jewish life in Great Britain and abroad.
Today, its news and opinion pages mirror the entire spectrum of Jewish religious, social and political thought, while its arts and lifestyle coverage embraces film, theatre, travel, cookery, youth and singles events.
The library at the Jewish Chronicle reflects all this in its photograph files. All facets of Jewish life are included: young to old, religious to secular, and Holocaust to Israel. There is a large section on Jewish personalities and another on subjects as diverse as books and Zionism. The third element comprises Israel, its land, its people and its history.
Heritage Image Partnership, together with the Jewish Chronicle, have now made instant access available to this extensive and attractive photographic archive.
