Alexander Vard

The Irish-Jewish community was a small but influential part of Irish society from the moment they first set foot in the medieval capital of Dublin in 1171 to the modern day. After over 800 years of permanent residence the Irish-Jews have left behind a rich history and culture that will be explored in this presentation centered on the story of the city’s former Jewish quarter known locally as “Little Jerusalem”

Join us to learn who were the first Jews known to have arrived in this corner of the British Isles and who are the ones who remain today. Discover the Jewish figures involved in Ireland’s independence and the Irish-Jewish connection to the founding of Israel. Hear the tragic story of Ettie Steinberg, the only Irish citizen victim of the Holocaust, and speculate about who was the inspiration for the Jew Leopold Bloom, the main character of James Joyce’s masterpiece, “Ulysses”.
