"I know that picture!"
When Alexandra Grime discovered that the artist behind a portrait of Mark Bloom in the Manchester Jewish Museum is none other than Northern Jewish painter Emmanuel Levy, we put an item in the fortnightly JR newsletter. Haifa resident Rona Hart recognised the painting from her childhood in Colwyn Bay, North Wales, and wrote to us in great excitement. CLICK HERE to read the full story.....
Inside our October issue:
REFRESH YOUR MIND
What readers say...
Jewish Renaissance does the near-impossible: it rescues English Jews from the curse of the parochial, re-uniting us with the wider, grander, older and newer, world of Jewish thought and event. Essential reading if you're Jewish or if you're not.
I keep meeting people who enthuse about JR for both its design and content. And I'm full of admiration every quarter.
Sir Arnold Wesker
A fascinating magazine, always beautifully produced and a pleasure to read. It has opened my eyes to the condition of Jews in corners of the world that I never knew they inhabited! and to a wealth of cultural events in London and in the regions.
