The afternoon starts with an introduction into the LMA and what archiving is all about; there will be object handling and an overview of different archiving proesses and techniques, focusing on community heritage.

Training participants are invited to hone their skills hands-on and help the project team catalogue and deposit the LLP collection at the LMA, thus ensuring the preservation of its legacy for future generations.

Lily’s Legacy: The Radical History and Heritage of Liberal Judaism in Britain has been running since November 2018, examining how The Liberal Jewish Movement embodies the vision of its founders – Lily Montagu, Claude Montefiore and Rabbi Dr Israel Mattuck – both today and throughout its history.

Everyone welcome!
