There are now estimated to be around 1. In Britain - home to the largest Haredi community in Europe - almost three out of every four Jewish births are in the Haredi community. If current trends continue, the strictly-Orthodox will constitute the majority of British Jews by The Haredi community first took root in Britain in Gateshead at the end of the 19th century, when a small group of Jews from Lithuania docked in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Appalled at what they regarded as the laxity of the local synagogue, they established their own on the other side of the river. With all of the great centres of Orthodox Jewish scholarship in Europe having been destroyed during the Holocaust, Gateshead became the largest such centre outside the United States and Israel.
It remains the principal centre of learning for the Haredi in Britain. In Stamford Hill, a small Haredi community that had lived in the area since the end of the 19th century was swollen dramatically by the influx of pre-war refugees and survivors of the Holocaust.
The population has grown with arrivals from Israel and America. Now within a tight geographical area, little more than a square mile, there are no fewer than 74 synagogues, or shuls, 32 orthodox schools, kosher supermarkets, butchers, fishmongers and a multitude of other businesses. To the outsider, the Stamford Hill Haredi community may seem like one confusing, amorphous whole, but in fact it is made up of a number of different streams, mostly Hasidic.
Hasidism had its roots in Podolia - what is now Ukraine - in the early 18th century, a populist movement that emphasised an ecstatic form of worship, deeply rooted in mysticism, and that quickly spread throughout Eastern Europe. The Hasidim are themselves subdivided into numerous rabbinical dynasties - the Satmar the largest group , the Gerer, the Belzer and the Bobover, all taking their name from the village or town in Poland, Hungary or Ukraine where they originated, and each distinguished by some slight variation of religious practice and of dress.
At the head of each dynasty is the grand rabbi, or Rebbe - nowadays all of whom are to be found living in Hasidic communities in New York or Israel. More than just a religious teacher, the Rebbe is held to be the fount of all wisdom and authority, on domestic, financial and marital matters - the repository of a stream of learning and wisdom that extends back through the rabbinical teachings and commentaries, to the Talmud and the Torah, and thus to Abraham, Moses and God Himself.
Walking around Stamford Hill , it is the geometry of family relationships that you notice. There are groups of mothers uniformly dressed in the mandatory dark coats and long skirts, and wearing the wigs that are an obligation for married women, pushing prams, a handful of children in tow.
There are groups of men, but seldom men and women together. Modesty is paramount to the Haredi, and the mingling of the sexes is strictly regulated. Unmarried boys and girls will have little contact with the opposite sex outside their families. At concerts and wedding parties men and women will always be separated. A Haredi man will avoid making eye-contact with any woman other than his wife, and would never shake hands. Among the Gerer, the more traditional will observe the rule that even husbands and wives should not be seen walking on the street together, giving rise to the joke: The act of study is a supreme religious obligation, as much for the layman as the rabbi, and the talmid hakham - the student of the Talmud, the compendious volumes of rabbinical discussions pertaining to Jewish law and custom - is venerated above all others.
All Haredi children in Stamford Hill attend Jewish schools, all of them single-sex, and all but one of them private. An Ofsted report on faith schools schools in noted that most of these Haredi schools have few resources, and many are in converted houses. Fees are heavily subsidised by the community at large, but for families with five, six or more children to educate the burden can be crippling. For boys in particular, education revolves almost entirely around religious studies.
The school week can sometimes be more than 40 hours, with the non-religious curriculum taking up only six or seven hours, mostly covering English, mathematics and general knowledge. In the last round of Ofsted inspections in , more than a third of the strictly Orthodox schools under inspection were criticised for the quality of their secular education. By their mid-teens boys will have entered a yeshiva, where they will remain until their shidduch - an arranged marriage, which usually happens between the ages of 18 and A married man will then go on to a kollel, either full or part-time.
In recent years, the enthusiasm for study has become more, not less, intense. Until the s full-time learning in the kollel was unusual - Gateshead was the only one in Britain. But now it is estimated that more than 20 per cent of married men continue their studies in a kollel well into middle-age and beyond, supported by their family. It is not unusual for wives to take on the burden of providing for their families. This emphasis on religious learning exacts a high price in other ways.
Haredim may be well educated in Jewish law, but many are poorly equipped for employment in the outside world. More than ten per cent of men obtain a rabbinical qualification, but very few have a professional one.
Many take jobs in the community that allow time for study. A survey suggested that between a quarter and a third of all men work in property; 18 per cent work in retail; 17 per cent teach in local Haredi institutions. The diamond business, centred in Hatton Garden, is a traditional mainstay. Such are the ties to the community that very few will chose to work outside it. I met him at his office at the school. He sat behind his desk, wearing a black beaver hat and top coat.
His grey beard gathered in clouds around his face, and sharp, amused eyes blinked behind rimless glasses. Rabbi Pinter is a ubiquitous and much-respected figure in Stamford Hill, a man who seems to enjoy his position as the public face of the Haredi community.
He runs three schools, and is an influential voice in any number of bodies and organisations. A discursive conversationalist, much given to jokes and ruminations, he has a reputation for worldliness - 'he has a Blackberry,' somebody told me. The girls' senior department became a voluntary aided school in , and at the same time moved into superb new, purpose-built accommodation. Tony Blair attended its official opening. The school has pupils, from 11 to 16, drawn from all sections of the Haredi community.
When the school became voluntary aided, Rabbi Pinter told me, there had been some parental concern about having to follow certain aspects of the national curriculum. But parents can choose to opt out. Sex education is something we deal with on our own terms through the Jewish curriculum, based on very strong family values.
I had never seen a school as clean and orderly as Yesodey Hatorah, nor a more well-behaved body of students. While the education of boys is centred on religious study, girls enjoy a much more balanced curriculum, at primary and secondary level. The attitude to learning was what defined a Jew as Haredi, Rabbi Pinter said. There is a difference in aspiration.
You could be an authority in halacha [Jewish law] - why would you want a PhD in physics? I would say second-rate.
A doctor, a lawyer, an accountant, I would say second-rate. The phone rang, and Rabbi Pinter answered it. I can think straight, I can think horizontally, and I can think with my head as well. Talmud develops a person morally, ethically and intellectually. Midwifery is a particularly popular option - and in Stamford Hill there is no shortage of opportunities to practise it. But for women, the primary expectation is to marry, create a home and raise their children in the faith.
Because of the size of families, and the emphasis put on continued religious studies, poverty is a real problem in the community. A study of the Stamford Hill community, Between Torah Learning and Wage Earning, published by the Floersheimer Institute for Policy Studies in Jerusalem, estimated that more than half the households below retirement age were receiving a means tested benefit of some sort, 62 per cent of families in the study were receiving child benefits, and 70 per cent receiving housing benefits.
Agudas Israel Community Services is an independent body that gives advice to the Stamford Hill Haredi on welfare, employment and immigration issues. An affiliated housing association has more than residential units in Stamford Hill, neighbouring Haringey and Manchester.
Housing, Michael Posen the director of the advisory service told me, was a major concern among many Haredi in Stamford Hill. Of the 3, families in the community, more than 2, live in private rented accommodation; housing is scarce and and there are high levels of over-crowding.
He estimates that more than families in the community will be affected. But a lot of what the government has proposed will affect larger families disproportionately to smaller families. People in the community had a mixed view of drawing benefits, Posen went on. But in terms of stigma Jobseeker's Allowance, yes there would be embarrassment. I wondered, would worsening financial straits perhaps encourage people to have smaller families?
For that we can rely that we will be looked after by God. It might be argued, I said, that in this day and age one should be thinking about limiting numbers. He shot me a look. An authority in Jewish law offered another view.
The important thing to remember about the Haredi community, Posen told me, was how tightly knit and and mutually supportive it was. There was a complex web of organisations and voluntary groups giving support on everything from care of the elderly to providing bridal gowns for those unable to afford them. It was a place where people rich and poor live cheek by jowl, where one is expected to help the other, and where people dug deep.
Posen pointed out of the window of his office. A series of vignettes highlight life in Americana as he came into close contact with all the families in town. He worked with year-old alcoholic telegrapher Willie Grogan Frank Morgan.
Members of Homer's family included older brother Marcus Van Johnson off fighting in uniform - in love with college-aged neighbor Mary Dorothy Morris , and Homer's younger six year-old kid brother Ulysses Jackie "Butch" Jenkins. One day, Homer had to deliver the news to his own family and his widowed harp-playing mother Mrs. Macauley Fay Bainter that big brother Marcus had been killed in battle.
Marcus' best friend and service pal, orphaned and parentless Tobey George John Craven , was more or less adopted by the Macauley family after the heart-tearing news. The low-budget, creepy film was very effective for its moody and atmospheric tone and visually-stylistic terror regarding dark family secrets, voodoo rituals and legends.
The brooding, mystical melodrama told of the work of trained Canadian nurse Betsy Connell Frances Dee. The retrospective film was her description of how she had "walked with a zombie. Jessica's doctor claimed that her catatonic, zombie-like condition with no will of her own, no speaking, and seemingly lobotomized was caused by an incurable tropical fever.
She slowly began to fall in love with guilt-ridden Paul, when she learned that Paul and his younger, alcoholic half-brother Wesley Rand James Ellison had earlier quarreled over the love of the afflicted woman in a love triangle, and Wesley had an affair with Jessica.
Betsy was convinced that she could cure the "living dead" Jessica with a shot of insulin, but the shock treatment failed. She then learned from Jessica's native maid Alma Theresa Harris that a local voodoo priest cured a woman with her condition. Alma drew her a map to the "Home Fort" where a local voodoo ceremony would take place.
In an unsettling nighttime scene, Betsy took her patient, without permission, on a haunting, dream-like walk through billowing cane fields to the ceremony. She had to pass animal sacrifices along the way. As she went through a crossroads, there was the abrupt and shocking appearance in the darkness of a huge, eerie, bug-eyed and towering zombie-like guard Carre Four Darby Jones.
A major plot twist occurred next - Betsy entered a shack to consult with the voodoo witch doctor priestess, and discovered it was the mother of the family, Mrs. Rand had discovered that her sons had fought over Jessica, Paul's wife, and threatened to break up the family, she had put a zombie curse on her. In the conclusion, a voodoo doll and magic was used by a shaman to cause the death of Jessica.
In a trance, Wesley carried her body to the ocean where they both drowned. Paul confessed to Betsy that he would take her away from the island. Jane Eyre , 96 minutes, D: Robert Stevenson Made a decade earlier by the poverty-row studio of Monogram, Jane Eyre - the first talking version of Charlotte Bronte's classic romantic story set in Victorian times.
This 40s version faithfully adapted Bronte's tale with typical Gothic elements, a brooding atmosphere, and Bernard Herrmann's rich score. Reed Agnes Moorehead of Gateshead Hall. Arrangements were made for her to attend a boarding school named Lowood Institution, a charitable facility led by the harsh and self-righteous headmaster, Reverend Henry Brocklehurst Henry Daniell , where she befriended another student named Helen Burns Elizabeth Taylor in an early uncredited role.
At the age of 20, she was hired as the governess for a young girl named Adele Margaret O'Brien - the daughter of a wealthy Yorkshire Englishman. The huge mansion set on the bleak-looking moors of Yorkshire was called Thornfield Hall, and was run by housekeeper Mrs.
Eventually, she met the darkly moody and hot-tempered owner, Edward Rochester Orson Welles , and gradually was drawn into the mystery and dark secrets of Thornfield Hall - centering around a mysterious seamstress named Grace Poole Ethel Griffies who lived upstairs.
The wedding ceremony was abruptly interrupted when an attorney contested the marriage - Rochester could not marry because he was still married to crazed, mentally ill spouse Bertha, who was guarded by Grace Poole. Jane was forced to depart from Thornfield, but returned after the death of her aunt to discover a burned-down Thornfield mansion. It was set ablaze by Bertha, who jumped from the roof and died. Edward was also severely disabled, and left crippled and blind when the interior staircase collapsed on him.
Jane remained and began to establish a relationship with Edward, and they married. His sight miraculously began to return after the birth of their son. Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger Powell and Pressburger's satirical character study was a controversial wartime film that angered Winston Churchill for its portrait of a 'fuddy-duddy' 40 year career soldier, in the character of rotund Clive Candy Roger Livesey.
Although completed in , this film was not released for showing in the US until , because it was banned for export from Britain due to its critical portrayal of staid British patriotism. He still maintained outdated notions about how to be a gentlemanly soldier and conduct war by following the rules, unable to adapt to the methods and realities of modern warfare.

Aldous Huxley's screenplay was adapted from the book Madame Curie: It was a dramatic historical film biography of the famous pioneering scientists, the husband and wife team of the Nobel Prize-winning Curies, who discovered radium.
It opened in the s with the awkward but endearing love story concerning the famous couple, shy physicist and avowed bachelor Pierre Curie Walter Pidgeon and his brilliant, determined Polish student Marie Sklodowska Greer Garson.
Their working partnership and marriage to pursue their "common scientific dream" overcame obstacles and ridicule, and they succeeded after a tedious, five-year experimental study in discovering a new and elusive radioactive element, radium. In the tragic conclusion, Pierre was run over by a horse-drawn carriage and died. Twenty five years later, continuing-researcher Marie lectured at the Sorbonne, declaring science "the clear light of truth," and advising her audience to "take the torch of knowledge and build the palace of the future.
Leslie Arliss This was the first of the quintessential Gainsborough Pictures costume melodramas, based upon the novel of the same name by Lady Eleanor Smith, with the themes of jealousy, doomed love and the elusive search for true love within a three-way love triangle.
The psychological drama was told as a flashback by two strangers who met and realized that they were related descendants. The story revealed the fates of three characters - the first two met as students at a boarding school and established a friendship: Clarissa had a loveless marriage to 3 the handsome but cruel, decadent and hedonistic "Man in Grey" - nobleman Marquis Lord Rohan James Mason. Clarissa became only a "brood sow" to produce children for her husband.
An impoverished and bitter Hesther went on to become a traveling Shakespearean play actress, and soon schemed to enter the Rohan household as a governess for the Rohan's young son, while she engaged in an affair with Lord Rohan. At the same time although away from the country estate , Clarissa had an affair with one of the Shakespearean actors in Hesther's troupe, a rogue named Peter Rokeby Stewart Granger , while Hesther plotted to take her place as Rohan's wife. This was facilitated after Clarissa caught a fever watching Rokeby's ship depart in the rain, and Hesther insured her death by drugging her and causing her to catch deathly pneumonia.
When the truth was revealed to Lord Rohan about his wife's murder, he went into a rage and beat his new fiancee Hesther to death.

And I was from divers good holy places advertised, that he used in his wandering about to come into the church, and there make many mad toys and trifles, to the trouble of good people in the divine service, and specially would he be most busy in the time of most silence, while the priest was at the secrets of the mass about the elevation.
Whereupon I, being advertised of these pageants, and being sent unto and required by very devout religious folk, to take some other order with him, caused him as he came wandering by my door, to be taken by the constables, and bounden to a tree in the street before the whole town, and there they striped him with rods therefor till he waxed weary, and somewhat longer.
And it appeared well that his remembrance was good enough, save that it went about in grazing till it was beaten home.

Amongst the most painful of these circumstances was the constant sight of heavy bars to my window, which in my extremely nervous state even produced a sensation of physical pain to the visual organs.
I observed the bars to the windows in this Asylum are peculiarly massive-and they remind me so much of the horrors of my former situation, that it is with a considerable effort, that I am not persuaded by my feelings from fulfilling my intentions, when I come to the gate of the Asylum.
I think the Committee might safely remove these bars, and substitute windows with small sashes in iron frames-or adopt in some cases, the plan pursued in many private asylums, of having Venetian blinds to the windows.
