Rachel Kolsky joined us for the launch of Jewish London, throughout the session she delved into literature and films featuring sites, past and present, of Jewish London. Rachel co-wrote ‘Jewish London’ a new comprehensive guidebook which focuses on the heritage and culture of London’s historic and current Jewish community, including listings of places to eat, shop, stay and pray. This presentation included a screening of ‘The Tenth Man’, a delightful short, filmed on location in the East End.
