Symbiosis through time: Merton and its Jewish neighbours

All of the items and lectures included in this exhibition illustrate the relationship between Merton and its neighbouring Jewish communities: both at its foundation in the 13th century, and later, with scholarly interest in Hebrew as a sacred language in the 16th-17th centuries, led by Thomas Bodley and Henry Savile. The study of Jewish history at Merton has continued in more recent times with the famous historian Cecil Roth.

Inspired by a series of lectures and an exhibition hosted at Merton College and the Heritage Committee of the Oxford Jewish Congregation, July 2014 - more information can be found here.
