In our current issue VIVA MEXICO! A UNIQUE CULTURE AT THE HEART OF LATIN AMERICA
Join us in tropical Mexico for JR’s October issue, where you’ll find Jewish revolutionaries, Ladino novelists, stunning Syrian synagogues and street stalls selling kosher enchiladas. We also unpick some of the documentaries to come out of 2018’s UK Jewish Film Festival. Plus, learn about the role of drugs in the lives of major Jewish thinkers; and ask whether Jewish artefacts and archives belong to their country of origin or to the communities that created them – many of whom may now live elsewhere. Have a look below for a sneak peek of what's inside our latest issue!
