Yehuda Avner Takes the Oxford JTrail

Date: 26/02/2009

Former Ambassador to the UK, Yehuda Avner, took a tour of Jewish Oxford with JTrails Director, Marcus Roberts at the request of Oxford Chabad House who had invited the Ambassador to address the students.

The former Ambassador, to the Court of St James, visited the sites of the former medieval Jewish cemeteries, the medieval Synagogue and Jewish quarter and the site of Jacob of London's House at Merton College.

The Ambasador greatly enjoyed his survey of the Jewish sites and the sense of Oxford tradition around him. Yehuda Avner was born and brought up in Manchester.
