The Leo Baeck Institute London (LBI), at the forefront of research on German-speaking Jewish communities in Europe over the last 300 years, is now based on the university’s Mile End campus.

Since 2009, the School of History and the LBI have offered a joint MA programme on European Jewish History, the only taught postgraduate programme in the UK focusing on the rich field of Jewish history, culture and thought in Europe.

The LBI Year Book Essay Prize was won by Barry Stiefel’s essay on ‘The Architectural Origins of the Great Early Modern Urban Synagogue’, which appeared in the Leo Baeck Institute Year Book 2011.

The LBI has moved to Queen Mary, University of London on 11th April 2011.

“The School of History at Queen Mary is very excited at the intellectual horizons opened up by the arrival of the LBI” says Prof. Julian Jackson, Head of School of History.
