    It wasn't specifically a Jewish club and certainly wasn't bound by Jewish religious practice.

      Maybe not exclusively Jewish, but its membership seems to have been overwhelmingly so. Some were presumably more observant than others.

        You may remember the Booth researcher’s comment about Jewish charwoman being almost non-existent in his district. Can’t remember where I posted it.

          I’m still intrigued by the fact that we hear nothing about IG during the Stride case.

            In 1887, Charles Booth's researcher identified the caretaker of the IWEC, living at 40, Berner Street, as a married man with 4 children of school age and one under a year old. He was a Jew, 'supposedly a tailor' and carried out 1b work (I've no idea either). No name was provided.

            In 1888, another of Booth's researchers recorded a tailor named Goldstein at 40, BS. The grade 1B2 was recorded and he was described as a Gen(eral) T(ailor).

            The 1891 census shows a Polish-born tailor named Israel Goldstein living at 40, BS. He is married with 5 children, ages 17, 11, 8, 6 and 2. His mother and brother-in-law are also part of the household as are two boarders, one of whom is shown as occupying 3 rooms. The number of rooms occupied by the Goldsteins is not shown, which suggests it was at least 5. Quite a substantial household.

            The age of the youngest child doesn't match*, but otherwise Izzy G looks promising as the club's 1888 caretaker.

            *My error, the youngest was ‘under 3’ so it does match.
            It’s just occurred to me what the ‘1b [etc] work’ notes might mean. I think ‘s’ and ‘d’ may be son and daughter, ‘g’, grandchild, so ‘b’ could be boarder? People other than the head of household who were in employment.
