My personal journey through the Jewish East End of London
Communal Restaurant, 214 Whitechapel Road, London E1
214 Whitechapel Road today -
formerly the Jewish Communal Restaurant, advertised below
The family of the late Max Stander
kindly sent me
a copy of the flyer below, dating from the mid
1930s, telling of their relative's efforts to set up a kosher
restaurant providing free meals for the Jewish poor of
Whitechapel. I have not heard of this institution and would
be grateful for any information readers may be able to add.
There are some well known names on the list of patrons: Barnet Janner MP, President of the Board of Deputies; Miriam Moses,
Mayor of Stepney, a founder of the Brady Club and founder of the
Jewish branch of the Children's Country Holiday Fund; Dr M Gaster, Chief Rabbi of the UK's Sephardi Community.
They also sent me a flyer of a proposed
London Jewish People's Home, 98
Whitechapel Road, London E1, complete with a scan of the
reverse with Hebrew cursive script on it. All information
