One of our newest Board MembersHarry Wall, has launched a new blog called Jewish Discoveries. According to Harry: “it is a travelogue of various Jewish communities that I have visited and filmed, along with articles and photos by other "Jewish travelers" […] e.g. "A Walk in the Marais - the Jewish heart of Paris"; the remarkable revival of Jewish life in Poland, and a charismatic chef preparing Sephardic dishes in Segovia, Spain. More videos will be posted in the coming weeks”.
