Display introducing projects with members of the Jewish community and Newcastle Libraries
Until Sunday 1 October
In Destination Tyneside gallery
Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums are working with members of the Jewish community and Newcastle Libraries to preserve and celebrate the rich history of the Jewish community, and increase access to records and archival collections.
Shalom! tells the story of Ron and Kath Lahav and the early history of the Jewish community in the west end of Newcastle. The display includes a selection of Jewish items from the museum and archive collections and a short film of the Siyuum event held at the Newcastle Reform Synagogue in April 2019.
