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.

Without music, would we even be Jewish?’ – This month we will be looking at this article from the Guardian, where Normam Lebrecht ‘explores the history of music and Jews, from King David to Leonard Cohen.’ We will also discuss the impact Jewish artists have had on the music world and the impact of music on Jewish Culture itself!

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.”
