AN EXHIBITON exploring the history and traditions of Jewish life has arrived in London’s East End—once the hub of Britain’s Yiddish-speaking Jews.

The Jewish Way of Life show which has been touring the country for 30 years is being staged at Bishop Challoner School in Shadwell, off the Commercial Road, until next Thursday (July 9).

It is open to the public, with its insight into family values and morals of the faith looking back over 5,000 years of Jewish tradition.

ARTEFACTS

“This fantastic exhibition includes authentic artefacts,” said Tower Hamlets deputy council leader Joshua Peck.

“The exhibition allows all artefacts to be touched and handled, a chance to build understanding between different faiths.”

Jews were the majority of the East End around Whitechapel, Spitalfields and Stepney between the 1870s and 1960s.

Bookings through the Jewish Board of Deputies by email or phone: 020-7543 5400.
