So, if you know me, I am a Christian who has worked a lot with the Jewish community. After living in Israel for 4 years, I also got to work in a really nice Jewish school doing their IT support, and also accidently find Israelis when I go and visit places like Munich Germany, Budapest Hungary, Dublin Ireland, and even the Great Wall of China. I think this is because of Israelis have a keen sense of adventure. I’ve also visited Morocco and Tunisia, which have had Jewish people who have almost completely left, mostly to Israel.
So at the beginning (April 2020) of the first part of lockdown, I decided to go exploring this special part of London, called Stamford Hill, which is home to a group of ultra Orthodox Jewish community.
I thought I’d show you around this place and how it compares with religious Jewish places in Israel and elsewhere.
So this was over an hour of walking from the place I was renting last year.
Stamford Hill, London – 1. Long Walk – 2. Different religious places – 3. UK HQ of Chabad – 4. Shabbos in Chassidic Jewish Stamford Hill – 5. Extreme oddball fringe group Neturei Karta – 6. Is there a future in Stamford Hill
