We’re Not All Rothschilds! Is based around a series of interviews conducted by Leila Abrahams in Brighton and Hove in 1994. The book explores the lives of ordinary working people linked by their Jewish faith.
There are fascinating accounts of running Beall’s Cork Shop in Gardner Street, memories of long-gone Brighton shops and discussions around the contributors’ relationship to their faith, and to Brighton and Hove. You’ll also find background information on the growth of Jewish communities in the city.

Editorial team: Leila Abrahams, Danny Birchall, Margaret Howell, Violet Pumphrey
