Audio tour: Jews, Money, Myth

Join exhibition curator Joanne Rosenthal in an audio exploration of the Jewish Museum London’s latest display

Jews, Money, Myth is the new exhibition at the Jewish Museum London exploring the ideas and stereotypes that link Jews to money. At a time when antisemitism is on the rise in the UK and beyond, it is especially timely, examining and busting as it does so many of the myths that reinforce prejudice. Join curator Joanne Rosenthal as she takes Judi Herman on a tour of some of the highlights of the exhibition and explains the vision behind it.

Jews, Money, Myth runs until 7 July. Jewish Museum, NW1 7NB. 020 7284 7384.
