Jewish Welfare in Hamburg and Manchester c.1850–1914

This chapter aims to highlight further issues which demonstrate the kind of problems faced by the welfare system of the Jewish establishment of Manchester when it dealt with co-religionists from the east. It notes that it is difficult to single out welfare provisions for Eastern European immigrant Jews in Manchester since most of the organizations and associations of the second half of the 19th century catered almost exclusively for them. It further notes that some aspects of the Anglicization and acculturation of the immigrants have already been analyzed. It reveals that an analysis of how Hamburg's Jewish establishment regarded Jewish and non-Jewish Eastern Europeans' transmigration through the city and devised support institutions highlights that, a number of underlying attitudes and reactions are very similar to those displayed by Manchester's Jewish elite.

Keywords:   welfare system, Eastern European immigrant Jews, Anglicization, acculturation, Hamburg's Jewish establishment, Jewish and non-Jewish Eastern Europeans, transmigration, Manchester's Jewish elite
