London Mayor Ken Livingstone has supported the second Jewish listings guide to London.

Produced in association with Jewish Culture UK, the guide offers information on events happening throughout the capital during the autumn and winter including exhibitions, Jewish music, theatre, dance and film.

Among the highlights of the guide is the 2005 JMI Jewish Culture Day taking place on 27 November at the South Bank which includes A Celebration of Jewish Songwriters.

"The Jewish community has made an extraordinary contribution to London’s cultural life for centuries," said Mr Livingstone. "The Jewish London guide will help Londoners and visitors get out and about, enjoy the capital and share in the rich cultural heritage of one of our oldest communities."

Other events taking place which are listed include an exhibition of photographs and memorabilia of the ballerina Anna Pavlova, the annual Remembrance Service and Parade of Jewish ex-servicemen and women at the Cenotaph and comedy improvisation night hosted by the JCC Players.

As well as being distributed across Jewish areas, the guide is also available at City Hall and by calling the Greater London Authority on 020 7983 4100.
