Celebrating the Jewish East End

Our aim is to increase awareness of the history and culture of London's Jewish East End, to preserve what remains and record what has now gone.  Our magazine - The Cable - contains a wealth of articles and photos that will interest all who wish to rediscover the rich history of our immigrant forefathers.

We have organised walks, talks, film shows and more to celebrate the Jewish story.

The Cable Magazine

The Cable has been the only magazine devoted to the old Jewish East End. It is lavishly illustrated in full colour (though many photographs, by virtue of their age, have to be in black and white) and jam-packed with interesting articles, personal reminiscences, and news of events and JEECS activities. Sadly, this is its last issue.  

The Cable. Dedicated to the Jewish East End. 

The magazine for everybody interested in the Jewish East End.

Just £3.50 (plus £1.22 postage in UK; if overseas please ask us).  Order from editor@jeecs.org.uk, phone 07941 367882, or write to Jewish East End Celebration Society, PO Box 57317, London E1 3WG enclosing a cheque for £4.72 payable to JEECS.

  • Farewell to JEECS

      Many of you are probably puzzled that you have not heard from us for some time and that the latest issue of our magazine The Cable is the first in nearly a year. I am afraid that the committee has decided that, because of illnesses and other reasons, it has decided to wind up JEECS at the end of Read More
  • Book Review: Old Hessel Street brought back to life

    A gloriously evocative, and often very funny, collection of stories centred on an iconic East End street   Hessel Street. What an image the name conjures up, with its shops, its market, its cast of characters – the heart of the old Jewish East End. My mother recounted how, as a girl, one of her regular tasks was to take one Read More
  • A Great Yiddish Parade to make Whitechapel sing

    It will soon be time for one of the East End’s most spectacular events, the Great Yiddish parade, and you are all invited. The date is Sunday November 19, when East End streets will echo with the sound of songs once sung there and forgotten for more than a century, as a marching band with singers and klezmer musicians bring Read More
  • Gensheroff premises found

    You published this photo of my father, Sholem Shrensky, and (it is assumed) of L. Gensheroff in issue 24, 2014 of The Cable in the hope that someone might know the location of the Gensheroff premises. Retired Detective Inspector Terry Abrahams astutely found, through the 1911 census, that the family of Isaac Gunscheroff (a close enough re-spelling of the name) Read More
