The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

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.
