Liberal Judaism has launched its latest ground-breaking oral history project Lily’s Legacy: The Radical History & Heritage of Liberal Judaism in Britain and now we need your help!
Over the next year, we will record the diverse voices of this movement and map the various existing heritage memorabilia across our communities, examining how Liberal Judaism embodies the vision of its founders – Lily Montagu, Claude Montefiore and Rabbi Dr Israel Mattuck.
Throughout the project – which will run until May 2020 – we’ll be offering a large and diverse number of opportunities to volunteer and get involved. These will include oral history interviewing, transcribing, archive research, audio & video production, exhibition curating and many other roles.
In return for your time, we can offer free, professional training, and skills-sharing programmes. We will also cover out of pocket expenses such as travel.
In this first project phase, we are looking for enthusiastic and dynamic volunteers to help record and transcribe oral histories from people across Liberal Judaism’s communities
Lily’s Legacy is supported by the National Lottery through the Lottery Heritage Fund.
