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 ages 18 and over, whether you identify as Jewish or are just curious to discover new things. The group meets monthly and it’s a great chance to meet and discuss ideas with new people, explore your own identity and discover new experiences of Jewish stories and culture.

This month we will be looking at and discussing the popular American reality series, ‘My Unorthodox Life’ that premiered on Netflix last year. The series centres around Julia Haart, the CEO of a modeling agency and fashion company and a former ultra-Orthodox Jew, as Haart and her family acculturate to their new non-religious lifestyle in Manhattan.

We will be looking at the first 2 episodes but feel free to watch the whole first series which is available on Netflix. The second season premieres next month!

One of the greatest voices of the contemporary UK jazz scene. Her recent album, Meshuga Baby, is a nod to her Jewish heritage. The Yiddish word ‘Meshuge’ means ‘crazy’ - a judgment that Smith describes as “so often passed on brave ambitious women that are not afraid to express their opinions and showcase their talent.”
