Aubrey Weinberg was formerly a principal lecturer in
Sociology in the Social Studies Department at Portsmouth Polytechnic
(now Portsmouth University). He graduated from
the University of London in 1956 where he also gained an MSc (Econ) in 1969. He was
awarded a doctorate by the University of Sussex in 1979. His previous publications have
been in the area of sociology and the present publication arises out of his association
with the Portsmouth and Southsea Jewish Social Club which encouraged hun to investigate
local Jewish history.
Some of the illustrations in this publication are taken from a book of mounted photographs
and cuttings depicting episodes in the life of the Portsmouth & Southsea Hebrew
They were collated by the late Sully Filer and presented to the author by
his widow Sally and her family as a contribution to the record of Portsmouth Jcwry.
I am grateful to acknowledge their kind presentation.
