Lily’s Legacy events and activities this autumn

Original blog via Liberal Judaism & LJ Today

After a successful launch of the Lily’s Legacy Education Toolkit for schools/chederim at the Liberal Judaism Biennial Weekend, the team is excited to announce a number of inspiring events and activities this autumn.

With Covid restrictions having eased off, the official exhibition launch reception will finally take place at the Wiener Library in Central London on Tuesday 19 October. Some very special guests will be announced shortly.

The week after, the Jewish Museum London will host the Lily’s Legacy Project Learning Day on Wednesday 27 October. This mini-conference will bring together Jewish and non-Jewish heritage practitioners and will showcase some pioneering projects across the UK.

Both events will welcome project supporters and Liberal Judaism members and friends but, in order to provide a safe space, in-person attendance will be limited. Online attendance will also be possible for some of these activities. Please check for updates via the Project’s Event pages at www.lilyslegacyproject.com.

Finally, the Lily’s Legacy Project will be offering further exciting training opportunities in its final phase. The London Metropolitan Archives will organise free archive skills training for volunteers in late October/early November.

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. For more information, please contact Project Manager Shaan Knan on lilyslegacyproject@liberaljudaism.org.

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

  • Lily’s Legacy Project is supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
