Interesting piece on Anglo-Jewish history but I take issue on one point. Jews were not 'permitted by law to return to England in 1655' or any other date. Rabbi Manesseh Ben Israel of Amsterdam petitioned Oliver Cromwell for Jews to return officially to England and he was agreeable. The Council of State debated it but no conclusion was reached. However it was held that no law forbade Jews to live there. The 1290 expulsion was by royal edict and not an act of parliament and was binding only on the Jews living in England at that time. The page in the parliamentary record was later torn out by person unknown. Following this, Jews simply 'came out' and lived openly as Jews but kept a low profile. British Jews now recognize 1656 as the nominal date of the Re-settlement.
