Jewish Life on Tyneside - Exhibition Currently Closed

An exhibition at City Library, about the History of the Jewish community in Newcastle and the many ways the community have contributed to life in our City.  The exhibition is currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Although the City Library has reopened the exhibition remains closed.  We'll be making decisions in September regarding the exhibition and whether we'll be able to extend this in the coming months. We will share this with you when we are able to do so.  If you have any queries regarding the exhibition please email
