Jewish Museum, London
Discover more about the themes, stories, and objects on display in Great British Jews: A Celebration from the exhibition’s curator Jemima Jarman.
Some of the most recognisable Great British inventions, innovations, products and people that you never knew were Jewish!
What do the high street shop Marks and Spencer, a plate of fish and chips, and the bawdy humour of Carry On films have in common? That’s right, you guessed it. They are all great, all British and all Jewish. This playful exhibition celebrates the huge contribution that Jews have made to this country across a variety of cultural, scientific and commercial fields.
The Jewish Lives Project and Exhibition have been made possible through the generous support of the Kirsh Family Foundation.
