Jewish Culture Review

Arts & Culture

We are delighted to present a very special evening, reviewing the past five years of contemporary Jewish arts and culture. It is perhaps more important now than ever, that we continue proudly to give expression to Jewish values and remain at the heart of Jewish cultural life in London.

And that’s exactly what we’re doing this evening – in true JW3 style. We’ll be delving into the role of Jewish culture in a wider context and exploring the value of loud and proud Jewish content. We’ll be joined by panellists Alexis Zegerman, Nicola Christie, Gil Karpas, Jason Solomons and the event chair Tim Samuels. Ana Silvera will provide live Ladino-inspired musical interludes to underscore the night.

We can’t wait for you to join us for what is set to be a fantastic, inspiring, engaging and thought provoking evening.
