and Aubrey Newman
We are proud to announce that 'Sharing Our Heritage' has been awarded the David Hyman Prize by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain.
'Sharing Our Heritage' is a book written by four people with one voice. They have pooled a wealth of research and personal experience to produce this inspiring history of the Leicester Hebrew Congregation. It takes the reader from the excitement of a new Heritage Centre, back in time to the early 1800s, charting two centuries of the LHC's rich history, with many fluctuations in fortune along the way. It illustrates the spirit that lives within the LHC, a spirit that has enabled the congregation to survive when other provincial Jewish congregations have not.
