Event description

Description

In 1977 a young youth worker from Manchester called Shloimy Alman visited East London for the first time and met with the legendary Yiddish poet Avram Stencl who guided him around the streets. Fascinated by the vibrant Jewish life he saw there, Shloimy wandered around the area both with Stencl and alone repeatedly over the following two years, documenting local characters, markets, businesses and Jewish institutions. His collection of over three hundred colour slides taken during this period now remains as a unique record of a disappeared world.

Come and visit London’s oldest surviving and still functioning Ashkenazi synagogue Sandys Row on Sunday October 6th2019 as part of the European Day of Jewish Culture to view an exhibition of these incredible images for the very first time. At 1pm and 4pm well-known author and Sandys Row historian Rachel Lichtenstein will be giving an illustrated talk on the story of this collection and the wider Jewish East End. Framed prints will be available to purchase along with a full colour exhibition catalogue, various books and postcards on the Jewish East End and Kosher refreshments.
