Follow us on witter @_ljcc_ Like us on Facebook 1 Welcome to a new season at the London Jewish Cultural Centre. I am sure, as you read this introduction that you will expect to see amiliar words that Cultural and Educational establishments always include in such copy; – best programme yet, wide variety o topics, riendly staf, rst rate speakers etc. Well, I say unashamedly that all those things are true, and more besides. I you browse through this new-look programme, I hope that those o you who come here regularly will nd we have created many new ways or you to engage with subjects that interest you and those o you who think you know about us and that we have nothing or you will be surprised by how much you would like to do. Te programme is designed to allow you to dip into art, music, history, cookery and current afairs, develop new skills or study many aspects o a particular subject in depth. One o the themes this Autumn, Te Great Dictators, will be explored through our history, lm and cultural strands, using eature lm and archive material rom our own archive, the most comprehensive Jewish documentary lm archive in Europe. In contrast, Sephardi Celebration, will eature an exhibition o Bettina Caro’s Sephardic Jewish art alongside special events ocusing on North Arican Sephardi cookery, history, ritual and culture. I have only described the tip o the iceberg. o nd out more, please take time out to discover what this programme can ofer you or log onto www.ljcc.org.uk where you can book online and take advantage o our early bird discount.
