THE BOARD of Deputies’ Jewish Liv­ing Ex­hi­bi­tion opened in Ip­swich on Mon­day in the pres­ence of the Mayor, Coun­cil­lor Glen Chisholm, and other civic lead­ers. The dis­play en­ables young peo­ple in non-Jewish ar­eas to gain a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of Jewish life, and ex­hibits in­clude a Shab­bat ta­ble and kosher foods. Board vi­cepres­i­dent Sheila Ge­wolb said at the launch: “I be­lieve it is so im­por­tant in to­day’s trou­bled cli­mate that we do ev­ery­thing we can to help pre­vent mis­con­cep­tions about all mi­nor­ity faiths. Mis­trust and fear of the other can lead to race hate and an­ti­semitism.” Thou­sands of peo­ple view the trav­el­ling ex­hi­bi­tion ev­ery year and its Ip­swich stag­ing was ar­ranged in as­so­ci­a­tion with Suf­folk Stand­ing Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil on Re­li­gious Ed­u­ca­tion.
