The Nathan Laski Jewish Studies Internet Resource Centre offers a careful selection of links to websites useful for teaching and research purposes, together with summaries of the features of each site. The Introduction, written by Charlotte Gringras (Honorary Consultant), explains how to make best use of the site in an educational context. This site is co-sponsored and hosted by The Nathan Laski Memorial Charitable Trust and by the Centre for Jewish Studies at the University of Manchester.

Nathan Laski was born in 1863 in Poland, the son of an immigrant to Manchester, UK. Laski became President of the Great Synagogue in 1896, and went on to become President of the Board of Guardians. He was also the first provincial Jew to serve as an officer on the national Board of Deputies of British Jews, and in 1906 he was made a Justice of the Peace. As the "uncrowned king" of the Manchester Jewish community, people queued for Laski's help and advice, and it has been estimated that he saw over 70,000 such visitors during his lifetime.
