In this one and half hour workshop, Shoshana Bratton of Shoshy Cadoodle will introduce you to the key techniques of brush lettering. Explore how letters are formed and try your hand at developing a style of your own. Brush lettering is freer and more improvised than designing a font for print, but you'll be using the same principals to form words with a mix of technique and creative fun. You'll leave with brush lettering skills and a new respect for the typefaces we see around us every day!

<![CDATA[Cecil Roth Annual Lecture: Sir Moses & Lady Judith Montefiore: between tradition and modernity.]]> 09/05/2018 – Abigail Green explores the extraordinary life of Sir Moses Montefiore]]> 09/05/2018 : Abigail Green explores the extraordinary life of Sir Moses Montefiore



Sir Moses Montefiore was a distinguished Jewish figure of the nineteenth century and one of the first truly global celebrities. He was a humanitarian, philanthropist and campaigner for Jewish emancipation on a grand scale. Himself and Judith, his wife, were simultaneously icons of Jewish modernity and models of traditional religiosity. This was a contradiction which, at the time, was perhaps less striking than it is now. This talk explores Montefiore’s life and work and tells the less well known story of his equally extraordinary wife Judith. It invites us to think again about tradition and modernity in Jewish history, about what these terms meant in the 19th century and the way we understand them now.

The lecture will be delivered by Abigail Green. Abigail is Professor of Modern European History at the University of Oxford. Moses Montefiore, Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero won the Sami Rohr Choice Award, was a Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year, and a New Republic Best Book of 2010. She is now writing an international history of Jewish liberal activism tentatively entitled Children of 1848: Liberalism and the Jews from the Revolutions to Human Rights.

This is the annual Cecil Roth lecture, funded by the Cecil Roth Trust and in collaboration with Joseph Roth. Cecil Roth was one of the greatest Jewish historians of the 20th century. The museum is privileged to host these thought-provoking lectures. He was also one of the original founders of the Jewish Museum in 1932.

The talk will be approximately 45 mintues long with time for questions and answers afterwards.

Remember Baghdad is the untold story of Iraq, an unmissable insight into how the country developed through the eyes of the Jews, Iraq’s first wave of refugees. From picnics on the Tigris, to hangings, imprisonment and escape, moving individual stories take us from past to present unfolding onto the wider story of the Middle East.

In their lives are played out the consequences of the self-serving monarchy imposed by the British, Nazi influence, and the creation of Israel. After 2,600 years living peacefully in the area, in one generation the community vanishes. With vivid testimony, home movies and news archive, we follow the lives of four families, and one man goes back to buy a house in Iraq.

Remember Baghdad is history made personal, revealing the little-known but fascinating back story of how the disintegration began in a country that has exploded into our lives today.

Followed by Q&A with the filmmakers.
