Notes for Jacob Israel BERNAL:
History of the Great Synagogue
This book is an essential source for the study of Anglo-Jewish history. It is now a very rare volume, and has been out of print for almost half a century. I am making it available for the benefit of all those who are researching Anglo-Jewish history and family history, and who are unable to make use of Dr Roth's great scholarship.
DAILY LIFE IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY
When in I744 Jacob Israel Bernal, a descendant of a family of Inquisitional martyrs and Gabbai of the K. K. Sahar Asamaim, applied to the Mahamad for leave to marry Johebed Baruch, a tudesca, he was compelled to resign, and the most humiliating conditions were imposed before the ceremony was authorised, and then only in a truncated form. (It was because of this episode that the Bernal family, who afterwards furnished English politics and society with some beloved figures, began to become estranged from Judaism.)
