First Open Jewish Culture Festival comes to London -

January 28, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can announce that the first ever Open Jewish Culture Festival is set to take place in London this year, which could be the perfect opportunity for the city's citizens to learn more about the religion and Jewish way of life.

It is a month-long occasion taking place between February 27th and March 29th across various venues, many of which will undoubtedly be near hotels in London.

The festival will celebrate everything from Jewish arts to culture and heritage with two main events being incorporated into the spectacle.

These are Jewish Book Week, which is held from February 27th until March 7th, and the official opening of the Jewish London Museum this spring.

One person who has been showing his support for the event is mayor of London Boris Johnson.

He said that he is "delighted" to be giving his support to the occasion and pointed out that the city's Jewish community has been integral to the success of the capital.

"Open Jewish Culture will give Londoners and tourists alike the chance to discover more about the fantastic variety of Jewish arts and culture that is out there," Mr Johnson added.

The Jewish London Museum is located in Camden Town and is currently undergoing a large redevelopment project.
