The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

IF you have never vis­ited Lon­don’s Jewish Mu­seum, you can take a peek in­side cour­tesy of the BBC.

The Cam­den-based mu­seum fea­tured as the venue for Tues­day night’s episode of The Quizeum, the BBC Four quiz show pre­sented by Griff Rhys Jones ( be­low).

Two teams led by his­to­rian Pro­fes­sor Kate Wil­liams and ce­ram­ics ex­pert Lars Tharp have to work out the story be­hind par­tic­u­lar ob­jects in a mu­seum or gallery.

Writer Si­mon Se­bag Mon­te­fiore and arts his­to­rian Jacky Klein also joined them this week to help glean the pur­pose of items of Jewish in­ter­est.

Be­low is one of them. If you want to know what it is used for, you can still catch the episode on iPlayer.
