Slàn, Irish Jewry?

By Daniel Treiman

The Jerusalem Post reports:

The future of the Jewish community in Ireland is bleak, as its committed members age and the young immigrate to other European countries and Israel, according to Dr. Rory Miller, senior lecturer at King’s College in London.

UPDATE: Commenter Arieh Lebowitz helpfully noted that my original headline for this item (“Slàn, Yiddish Sons of Erin”) might have been cause for confusion. He pointed out that “The Loyal League of the Yiddish Sons of Erin was founded by Michael Mann, an old time Dubliner who was a well known trade union leader in New York.”

Interesting article, but mis-headed. The Loyal League of the Yiddish Sons of Erin was founded by Michael Mann, an old time Dubliner who was a well known trade union leader in New York.
