Leeds and its Jewish community

Manchester University Press

The chapter traces the development of Zionism among Leeds Jewry, taking inspiration from the work of Theodore Herzl. In many ways, Zionism acted as a unifying influence in what was often a fragmented community, particularly since support did not depend on the degree of religious orthodoxy. Zionism in Leeds received a great stimulus from the arrival of Selig Brodetsky, who became the main organiser and leader. The city also was inspired by the visits of Chaim Weizmann.

Keywords:   Selig Brodetsky, Chaim Weizmann, Religious orthodoxy, Zionism, Theodore Herzl
