BBC covers Welsh Jewish Heritage Centre website launch

January 31, 2022

Following the launch of the website ‘jewishheritage.wales’ presenting the Welsh Jewish Heritage Centre project, there has been a flurry of interest.  Our own Foundation for Jewish Heritage Chief Executive Michael Mail appeared on BBC Radio Wales and BBC S4C, along with Lis McLean from Soar and Prof. Nathan Abrams from Bangor University.  Additional coverage was also published on the BBC News website.

Michael stated:

“I was delighted to have been invited by the BBC to speak about the Welsh Jewish Heritage Centre project being developed at the former synagogue in Merthyr Tydfil. It is vital for the success of the project that we reach a wide audience, both within and beyond Wales.  Hopefully the website, and the media coverage, will help towards achieving that. ”
