In addition to reporting on JLC related activities, we hope to be able to increasingly give examples of innovative projects that contribute to the vitality of our community:
Gefiltefest, the Jewish food charity seeking to change the way the Jewish community thinks about food, is to hold its fourth Gefiltefest London Jewish Food Festival on Sunday 19th May. Cheap 'early-bird' tickets are now on sale for the festival, which will consist of a full-day of cookery demonstrations, lectures, debates and hands-on workshops devoted to food and Judaism. Nicknamed a 'food Limmud', it will include more than 70 sessions, including a lecture from Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg, an Askenazki vs Sephardi cook-off, hands-on workshops, kids' sessions, plus garden stalls and lots of tastings.

If you're unable to attend, you can still cast a vote for your favourite bagel and challah bakers in the Jewish Chronicle-Gefiltefest Jewish Food Awards by clicking here. The festival was founded in 2010 by Rachel Marcus and Michael Leventhal.
