Announcing the Jewish Heritage Summer Excursion 2013
SAVE THE DATE!
We are pleased to announce that the excursion will take place on
the afternoon of SUNDAY 21st JULY
This year's destination is LIVERPOOL:
Facing out west towards the New World, the Port of Liverpool on the Mersey Estuary was, from the Georgian period, a magnet for migrants both from Ireland, and to the West Indies and America. Jews were resident in Liverpool from 1742 and until the second half of the 19th century the city was home to the second largest Jewish community outside London. Liverpool’s Jewish population has dropped from about 7,500 in 1971 to about 2,400 in 2011. However, the world-class Princes Road Synagogue stands as eloquent testimony to the contribution of Liverpool’s Jews to the life of this great city that today is reinventing itself as an international tourist centre.
This summer, the blockbuster exhibition Chagall: Modern Master is showing at Tate Liverpool and is attracting visitors from all over the country and abroad.
We have no doubt that this will be an added incentive to our Members and friends to come and join us to explore the richness of Liverpool's Jewish heritage. Afternoon tea at Princes Road will provide an excellent opportunity for us to meet and one socialise.
