Celebrating 350 years of Jewish life in England, we embark on an oral history project involving families from across the Jewish community. Spoken word poet Leah Thorn facilitated a workshop in which each family (in inter-generational groups of 2-3) are invited to bring in a photograph from their family album which will elicit a joint poem. This session allows each family member to explore their connection with the past and create a lyrical ‘Living Photograph’.
