By Abigail Green
When we think of Jewish built heritage, we usually think of synagogues, Jewish cemeteries, and other communal or religious structures, as well as former Jewish quarters and shtetls. Oxford University Professor Abigail Green argues that there is another set of buildings that should be included as part of Jewish architectural heritage – the Jewish country house: rural villas and mansions that were owned, renewed and sometimes built by Jews. Oxford will host a conference on the Jewish Country House in March, 2018.
