Summary of JHSE Awards 2017



We are delighted to announce that the JHSE has made awards to the following projects:

Social History

  • The transcription of data from Jewish wills in Gibraltar which are a rich source of material on Jewish social history.
  • Adopted as the first JHSE 125th Anniversary project, the society and our Sussex branch will create a website to promote social history in Brighton and Hove.

Research

  • Support for research on the role of elite women in the campaign for women’s suffrage and left wing and anti-fascist activity in Britain during the interwar period. Also, for a biography on Claude Montefiore.
  • Doctoral support for a thesis on ‘Charles Garland Verrinder: A non-Jewish contribution to Jewish Choral Music’.

Conservation

  • The Willesden Cemetery Heritage Project is a major project to conserve the buildings and access the social histories linked to the recently listed cemetery. We are supporting the professional fees of an Interpretative Planner.

Data Capture

  • We are supporting the photographing of the Westminster Abbey Muniments. This will allow for a better understanding of debt patterns linked to Jewish moneylending in the medieval period.
