DEUTSCH:

Der Fussballverein Tottenham Hotspurs hat ein Problem.  Die Fans bezeichnen sich als Yids, Juden auf Jiddisch.  Das trug unannehmliche Konsequenzen mit sich.  Wieso das so ist, und warum das zur Kontroverse führte, kann man in meinem “Stadtgespräch” Bericht in der Sonntaz nachlesen.

English notes:

When a Haaretz headline claimed that Jewish people from France leave their country for London and New York, due to anti-Semitism, I was asked by the JüdischeAllgemeine, given that I work in London, to have a closer look.  I learned that few journalists had actually been to the place, where French Jewish Orthodox people congregated to speak with people on the ground.  My report reveals that there was more to the story in the synagogue in St. John’s Wood than the panic headlines revealed.  Not only was anti-Semitism fuelling the French exodus, but also employment opportunities in the London City and the tax laws of Hollandes.  The link to the article is on the top.  Please get help from googletranslate if you can’t read German to get the entire article translated in one go into English.

Years after writing and researching this it appears to me that it is OK to reveal some of my academic works, to share knowledge and show my interests.

This paper discusses Orthodox Jewish sport in a general and in a local context.
