Editorial

in European Judaism

There is an ongoing political debate as to whether or to what extent the United Kingdom is a part of ‘Europe’. Clearly a journal published in the UK that seeks to explore the dimensions of Jewish life throughout Europe has, from its inception, celebrated this broader aspect of British Jewish identity. But by focusing on continental Europe we have sometimes neglected aspects of Jewish life in Britain itself. This was brought home to the editor when he attended a conference in London organized by Sue Vice and Axel Stähler called: ‘Writing Jews in Contemporary Britain’. When invited to publish the proceedings in the journal the organizers readily agreed and expanded the initial list of contributors. So it is with gratitude and pleasure that I hand over the editorial task to them for the bulk of this issue.
