Cardiff United: Jewish history trip to Oxford

Share this article:


Congregants were toured around Jewish medieval Oxford and treated to lunch in a trip focused on cultural education and community cohesion.


To unite the congregation in a social context; to improve the well-being of older members by providing an opportunity for them to get out and spend time with friends; to educate attendees in the history of British Jewry.

Evaluation from Rabbi Rose:

“This was a first for the Cardiff community and provided a great opportunity for members, especially singles and older congregants, to come together and enjoy some quality time. Our guide gave an in-depth tour of Jewish Oxford, making for a great day out.”

Participant Feedback:

  • A great way to learn about the Jewish history of Oxford
  • I feel that a void in our provincial Jewish life is being filled by learning about other communities.
  • It was a lovely opportunity to meet new people. The Chief Rabbi is really helping to bring Jewish people together.
  • Such trips help us realise the importance of supporting other communities, especially the provincial ones.
