(p.257) Conclusion
The Jews of Britain, 1656 to 2000

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the history of Jews in Great Britain. It suggests that the Anglo-Jewish history was a success story, a tale of toleration and achievement, to be proudly celebrated. In comparison to the histories of Jews in other European lands, the Anglo-Jewish experience was remarkable by virtue of its freedom from overt persecution. Social and occupational discrimination, while not absent, was neither systematic nor pervasive. The record of social and political integration was more remarkable.

Keywords:   Jews, Great Britain, Anglo-Jewish history, toleration, persecution, social integration, political integration
