Jewish Socialist and the Bishopsgate Archive

The magazine was launched by the Jewish Socialists’ Group in 1985 as a forum for radical ideas and opinions on issues directly affecting the Jewish community in Britain and elsewhere, and on questions vital to minorities and socialists everywhere.

The Bishopsgate Institute have now archived the magazine from the first issue in June 1985 through to issue 25 published in March 1992.

Delve back into the debates and news of those years including Le Pen (Jean-Marie) at the Tory Party Conference or Perdition the play by Jim Allen.  How were we addressing Farrakhan, HIV and AIDs, Jewish feminism and of course the ever-evolving situation in Israel and Palestine? Click here for the link that will take you directly to the Bishopsgate Institute's website and our archive and how to search within it.
