North London. Well known for having the bulk of Britain’s Jewish community. You’ll always get a good bagel round Golders Green.
An aside: there’s an old Jewish joke. Road sign in North London:
GOLDERS GREEN: 5 MILES … TO YOU – THREE
I digress. Quite a faith-centred Sunday, beginning with waking up at 06:00 to my home radio station’s God-slot show, the Mike Hill Show. Then off to the local Anglican church in Camden. Very Anglo-Catholic. Smells and bells. I even met a lady from Saxon… as I could tell by her accent after a few minutes. (Nicht vergessen: Über 60 Millionen Menschen können nicht richtig Ostdeutsch sprechen… macht was dagegen!)
I digress again.
After church a visit to the London Jewish Museum. Very welcoming, informative museum, very interactive. Far better than the Berlin Jewish Museum, all stuffy and full of glass cases. A lot I never knew about the contribution of Britain’s Jews. One of the staff there is able to trace her family tree back to the times of Oliver Cromwell. I was impressed. I can only go back to 1890.
Go if you get the chance. It’s closed on Saturdays.
Have a cultural day, won’t you!
