A new exhibtion at London's Jewish Museum which explores being a minority in Britain is being supported by Mayor Ken Livingstone.
As part of a year long celebration to mark Jewish life in Britain over the last 350 years since Jews were readmitted, Identities 2006 is on at the museum from July 4 to November 12 and celebrates Jewish life.
The exhibition offers film and photographs of Britain's diverse Jewish community including
interviews with former MP Oona King, a Jewish tailor from Morocco, former Lord Chief Justice Lord Woolf and a young women from the British Indian Jewish community.
"I am pleased to be able to support this important exhibition, which celebrates how Jewish and other communities have enriched British society," said Mr Livingstone. "Ours is a country that has benefited culturally as well as economically from the different communities that have chosen to live here. Jewish people have made an enormous contribution across all fields of social, political, cultural and economic life over many centuries."
