I have been doing some research into the history of jews as i had some questions that needed answering,
1, why have jews been persecuted?
2, when and why did the Jews settle in England?
3, why London ?
from my findings it has led me to question my take on Golders green, we have all noticed that it is a bit grey and dreary, as a culture Jews have a lot of reasons to not show off and display any trappings of wealth, I think we may have missed this. As a non Jew it is of course very hard to try and get into the mind of the Jewish community, but we will need to be aware of this when designing.
