SETTING DOWN ROOTS
Setting Down Roots
Some members of the local Jewish community were born in St Albans; others were born in London or elsewhere, moving for work or family reasons, or for a greener environment. Many born in other countries took British nationality, some subsequently serving in the armed forces, as being British became part of their identity. Jewish residents have built careers, raised families and established homes here, gradually putting down their own roots in St Albans.
