Lottery cash funds Liberal study of gay Jews in Britain
Liberal Judaism has won a grant of nearly £60,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to record the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Jews in Britain since the Second World War.
It plans to create an archive of audio-visual interviews, a resource pack for schools and a touring exhibiton on the experiences of LGBT Jews.
