Mazel tov Brighton

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage created a magazine recently about Brighton and Hove Jewish history as part of our just completed Mazel tov Brighton project.
You can view the digital version of the magazine here: 18-323-NC Hyman Fine Mazel Tov Brighton Magazine
jewish shopThe project has celebrated the links between Judaism and Brighton and Hove lives with residents of the Jewish Care charity run home Hyman Fine House, many of whom were born in the city in the 1920s and 30’s and remember it well, including shops, people, places and rituals.
The project began in April 2017 and ran until autumn 2018. The project celebrates Judaism through active aging, finding physical as well as mental ways to address early onset dementia.
We have done this through dance activities and physical workshops, whilst exploring Brighton’s Jewish history, with residents of Hyman Fine House (HFH). Dance practitioners have encouraged physical activity with residents and carers that celebrate traditional Jewish performance including Sephardic dance, the Hora, and Flamenco which has links with this heritage.
Middle Street Synagog 1960Through this project, we have revitalised residents, generated energy, uncovered memories, and explored city heritage. This project ensures generational memories aren’t lost to dementia, preserving physical traditions and movement; celebrating Judaism’s rich tradition.
