Wilfrid Israel - German Jewry's Secret Ambassador
Naomi Shepherd

‘[Wilfrid Israel] was one of the finest and most noble individuals I have personally known.’

Albert Einstein, 7 December 1947

‘The author has not only rescued Wilfrid Israel from the shadows; she has told from a new perspective the tragic story of the reaction of the outside world to the news of the Nazi atrocities against the Jews.’

Zara Steiner, the Financial Times

‘Naomi Shepherd has with admirable tenacity tracked down the elusive records of Wilfrid Israel’s life in archives, private collections and personal recollections; her poignant chronicle of his heroic journey has the fluency and pace of a first-rate thriller.’

A.J. Sherman, Times Literary Supplement

A Rocky Road: Memoirs
Abraham Levy

“A wise and warm memoir from one of the great spiritual leaders and institution builders of Anglo-Jewry. Rabbi Dr Abraham Levy has been an outstanding embodiment of the classic Spanish-and-Portuguese Jewish tradition, a passionate voice for moderation in an age of extremes, and this lovely book is a reminder of how much that tradition still has to teach us about the combination of humanity and spirituality, openness and faith.” Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks  

“A wonderfully charming, intimate and interesting memoir of life at the very centre of the old Sephardic Jewish community in London by its hugely respected, long serving Rabbi Abraham Levy who not only has known many eminent and famous characters, described in the book, but also understands and enlightens the culture and faith of Judaism itself.”

Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Jerusalem: The Biography
