CAMBRIDGE: HAVEN IN THE FENS
Did you know that one of the most eminent astronomers of the 18th century was a Jew from Cambridge? This is just one of the stories we cover in this issue of JR, where readers are guided through the ancient city of Cambridge. Tour its medieval history, its émigré thinkers and vibrant community. Plus, hear from writers Frederic Raphael, Elaine Feinstein and others about their time living there. In other sections Roxana Jebreel calls for urgent action to stop Sephardi communities being excluded from mainstream Jewish life and we hear how an Icelandic author has relocated the story of the Golem to his icy home country.
