Are you interested in exploring contemporary Jewish Culture? Do you like to share and discuss ideas? Do you want to meet new people and discover new things?

Jewish Culture Club is a group for anyone who wants to explore contemporary forms of Jewish Culture – this could be books, TV, film, fashion, music, art, theatre and much more! The group is open for anyone aged 18 and over, whether you identify as Jewish or are just curious to discover new things.

We meet each month to talk about a specific piece of work, this could be a book, a music album, a TV show or film. It’s a great chance to discuss ideas with new people, explore your own identity  and discover new experiences of Jewish stories and culture. Our group is hosted by Eliora Goodman, Demi Franks and our own Gemma Meeks and Gareth Redston.

In March we will be travelling back in time to read through Challah Magazine’s March 2021 edition – which you can read for free online here: https://issuu.com/challahmagazine/docs/challah_magazine_issue_02_-_adar_5781

Challah is an online magazine for young Jewish adults or anyone who wants to know what young Jews are thinking today. Their mission is to bridge the gap between Jewish denominations and disciplines and fuse cultural heritage with contemporary Jewish experiences. They cover everything from articles on identity and tradition, to food and culture, this magazine reflects what it means to be young and Jewish today.

Join us to discuss the magazine’s March edition and explore what ways modern young Jewish people can explore their Jewish identities today.
