The Jewish Experience

Commemorating the centenary of World War One, The Jewish Museum remembers the fifty thousand plus Jews who fought 'For King and Country' in an exhibition that runs until the 10th August.

Hear the stories of the men, women, and children who were affected, through objects, displays, and curator talks. Find out how faith came into conflict with battle, and explore the poetry and art of Isaac Rosenberg. The Great War caused the many paintings, which can be discovered during a talk that reveals how they still influence our lives today.

During the exhibition, there will be scheduled family days, when you can go on trails, get a closer look at items such as an artillery shell and prayer book, and take part in a creative workshop inspired by what you see.

On the 3rd August, there will be a commemoration event at 11am, to remember those who served.
