Abstract

This paper seeks to integrate the study of the German Jewish minority in the Victorian north of England, Yorkshire in particular, within the wider context of Victorian history and Jewish and migration studies. Its aim is to contribute to English-Jewish social and cultural history by uncovering the complex relationship between German Jewish and Victorian communities in the provinces and how these affected national and religious identity formation in the modern period. The essay analyses international political and social engagements of German Jews in Bradford and the impact of those engagements on their identity. It selectively looks at two prominent German Jewish figures: Jacob Behrens (1806–1889) and Jacob Moser (1839–1922).
