This chapter provides a brief summary of the histories of the Quaker and Anglo-Jewish communities, from the mid-17th century to the end of the 19th century. The development of Quakerism can be traced from its radical roots, through the “quietism” of the 18th century, to the evangelicalism that dominated the 19th century. In analyzing the Anglo-Jewish theme, the interrelated themes of assimilation, tolerance and discrimination are explored, with special emphasis on the perception from early Victorian era that British Jews had not adequately contributed to literature, music and science. We incorporate equality into our fundamental objectives, doing everything we can to eliminate discrimination, create equal opportunities and develop good working relationships between different people.

One way is by attending events or services hosted by local synagogues or organizations such as Gendered Intelligence which works with trans youth in particular. Another way is by volunteering with organizations such as Inclusive Judaism which works directly with Jewish communities in Britain to collect images that show how Jews have been able to express their LGBTQ+ identity through religious attire or practices like sharing a Kiddush cup or blowing a shofar.
It is also important for members of other genders to be aware that there are still some challenges facing this community such as anti-Semitism or discrimination based on gender or sexual orientation. It is important for members of other genders to be aware that these issues exist so they can be better prepared to support this community if needed. Finally it is important for members of other genders to remember that everyone has something unique to offer this community regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
