Chapter Summary

In addition to the importance of Hebrew collections in English libraries for establishing the Wissenschaft des Judentums, the Anglo-German network of Jewish scholars influenced the development of modern Jewish learning and identity formation in England. This influence was two-fold in effect: if the work of highly trained German-Jewish scholars shaped the Anglo-Jewish educational system in Britain and indeed the Anglo-Jewish community in general, Anglo-Jewish society went on to develop a clear identity and direction of its own during the nineteenth century. Both English and German Jews had striven for full recognition and acceptance since the end of the eighteenth century. However, the social conditions as well as the individual strategies of self-assertion employed by the communities were in many respects very different on the two sides of the Channel.
