About JTrails

Originally conceived in 2005 as the UK prepared to mark the 350th anniversary of the readmittance of Jews to England the following year, JTrails was the brainchild of historian, lecturer and author Marcus Roberts, an expert in the field of Anglo-Jewish heritage. Teaming up with Robin and Nitza Spiro, pioneers and innovators in Anglo-Jewish education, the trio were able to bring considerable experience and enthusiasm to the project, securing support from English Heritage and combining their skills to bring the initiative to fruition. In the intervening years we have created many heritage trails and completed extensive historical and archaeological research and worked with many partners and community groups. In 2013 JTrails became an independent registered heritage charity and we now work independently from the Spiro Ark and we have expanded our work to include Jewish heritage sites in Europe as well as Holocaust research and the creation of Holocaust trails 'in sight of England'.
