The theme of this year’s Jewish History Month is Big Screen Little Screen, Jews in British Cinema and Television. We have organised an ambitious programme, consisting of a wide range of events; taster sessions, screenings, a walk, tours, discussions, illustrated talks and lectures – in a range of venues; iconic cinemas, community buildings, synagogues, film studios, museums – and in locations across the country; London, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Southampton, Bristol, Sussex, Essex and Hertfordshire. We are delighted that so many top-class historians and well-known personalities have agreed to participate.
