Rachel Lichtenstein was born in 1969. In that same year David Rodinsky mysteriously disappeared from his attic room above the synagogue in Princelet Street, in the heart of the old Jewish East End. As the granddaughter of Polish immigrants, who settled in Princelet Street in the 1930s, Lichtenstein was immediately intrigued when she first heard of the synagogue in 1990.
She secured a residency in the building and took over Rodinsky's role as self-appointed caretaker. She began to catalogue the objects left in his room, and she also started searching for people who had known him. Through walking the streets, she built up a wealth of information about the area, and after several years of research became a tour guide.
Rodinsky's Whitechaple takes the reader on a walking tour, past sites and buildings that played an important role not only in Rodinsky's life, but also in Lichtenstein's own. The walk also highlights the last remnants of many important locations of the once vibrant, but now quickly vanishing Jewish East End.
