Abstract

Within the Jewish European context, Anglo-Judaism stands out chiefly because of its exceptional continuity on English soil, never experiencing any major rupture, State anti-Semitism or deportation since the "Readmission" of Jews under Cromwell (1656). Furthermore, contrary to the French example, "Her Majesty's Jewish Subjects" were not granted citizenship following an exceptional political upheaval such as the downfall of the Ancien Régime, but as a result of a slow process of integration into the host country. Thus, following their emancipation there was no sense of rupture similar to that of their French co-religionists who favoured the term "Israelite" rather then "Jew" in defining their new identity. Nevertheless, Anglo-Judaism forged a specific identity adapted to the particular national context of England. After briefly summarizing the circumstances leading to the formation and development of this identity and highlighting its initial distinguishing characteristics, this article will attempt to define its consistent set of elements and its developments during the 19th century up to the end of the Second World War, in reply to the question: "Was Anglo-Judaism one of the versions of the French Israelite model?"
