On 31 December 1766, Israel Samuel gave 22 East Street, Brighton as the address for his marriage certificate, and became the first recorded Jew to live in Brighton.
Two-and-a-half centuries later, the Jewish community in Brighton & Hove celebrate this milestone moment with this specially-commissioned, limited-edition, book.
Beautifully illustrated, it contains over 40 contributions from historians, academics, and a range of members of the community and a location map of areas of interest.
With an introduction by Alex Brummer, Daily Mail, City Editor, and a contribution from a direct descendent of Israel Samuel. It is the definitive history of one of the UK’s oldest communities.
