Canvey Island Chasidim je ijWh _d 889 Óbc
THE BBC is to show a documentary on Essex’s newest Strictly Orthodox commuity. According to the corporation, The Jews of Canvey Island “follows the north London Chasidic Jewish community as they relocate from urban Hackney to the greener pastures of Canvey Island in search of more affordable housing”.
The programme, which will be broadcast next month, is one of five commissioned by the BBC to explore issues in all the major religions. Canvey’s Jewish community was set up last year, when a group of families from the Satmar Chasidicwe sect moved to the area.
