PM John Mann head of All-Party Parliamentary Group against Antisemitism, joined the nearly 2,800 gathered in Birmingham, two hours north of London last week, to celebrate the 35th birthday of Limmud Conference.

Mann saluted outgoing Limmud Chair Kevin Sefton and incoming Limmud Chair David Hoffman at the festive launch of “From Vilna Street in Vishnyeva to President’s Street in Jerusalem,” an exhibit highlighting the life and times of Shimon Peres.

The exhibit was conceived by Limmud FSU Founder and Director Chaim Chesler and curated by Yoram Dori.
