The Kalman reference to Jewish Friendly Societies is:
The Jewish friendly societies of London 1793-1993
J Hist Studies 33 1992-94.

Those interested in other Jewish communities of the
UK could consult:
Rainer Liedtke
Self-help in Manchester Jewry: the provincial independent tontine society
Manchester Region History Review 1992

or Zoe Josephs
The Friendly Societies
in Z Josephs (ed)
Birmingham Jewry Vol II More Aspects 1740-1930 (pub. 1984)

Those interested in friendly societies, which were significantly different
to landsmanshaften, could join the Friendly Societies Research Group which
can provide further information about specific societies and information
about sources. Their website is:
