This change reflects our burgeoning educational work, which will be centred around the statue. The core of our activity is education, which will continue after the statue is erected. We continue to work hard to raise finance for the statue, which is vital to give real visibility and prominence to our messages.
We are very excited that Rebecca Abrams, the well-known and respected author, has agreed to write our book on Licoricia and the medieval Jewish community. Rebecca has recently published ‘The Jewish Journey: 4000 years in 22 objects from the Ashmolean Museum‘ and ‘Jewish Treasures from Oxford Libraries‘ for the Bodleian Library. Her other works include Touching Distance, Three Shoes One Sock & No Hairbrush, The Playful Self, Woman In a Man’s World and When Parents Die. The book will be published in 2021.
