A new exhibition exploring what it means to be two things at once.

In partnership with 

Jewish people have lived in Britain since 1066. As a community, British Jews are proudly, well, British. Yet they have long been cast as outsiders, whose loyalties lie elsewhere.  This exhibition invites you to explore some myths and realities – the many wonderful, curious and sometimes amusing pluralities of being British and Jewish. 

Come and see some remarkable objects.  Roam around an interactive virtual environment.  Watch Holocaust survivors talking about growing up.  Discover what’s lurking beneath today’s anti-Jewish racism in the ‘Lift The Flap’ exhibit.

Our educators will be on hand to have a chat and answer any questions.

"The exhibition... raises concerns “that some people are so ready to erase British Jewish freedoms because of the Hamas-Israel war 3000 miles away”.  Read the full article here.

"The exhibition... invites visitors to think about unconscious bias - several objects on display seem harmless enough, until you lift up a flap to discover the ingrained anti-Jewish assumption they sprang from." - Hampstead & Highgate Express.  Read the full article here.

"...The exhibition makes clear why the attempt to erase Jewish identity is no longer just the province of the extreme right." - Jewish News
