Lily’s Legacy Project

Promotional Image for Lily's Legacy

The Lily’s Legacy Project is a heritage project organised by Liberal Judaism. It is deposited at the London Metropolitan Archive and online, and supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Archive Description

Lily’s Legacy: The Radical History of Liberal Judaism is a faith community heritage project that documents and showcases Liberal Judaism’s rich heritage as well as its contribution to British society, while preserving legacy for future generations. It examines how Liberal Judaism embodies the vision of its founders – and in particular Lily Montagu – today and throughout its history. The collection includes oral histories, transcripts, films, photographs and educational resources.

As part of the project a groundbreaking multi-media exhibition ‘Voices and Visions of Liberal Judaism’ was created and it features memories and mementos of Liberal and Progressive Jews in the UK.

The project is still in progress and will be archived in Autumn 2021.
