In 2013, thanks to Searle Kochberg, RJ has worked in partnership with University of Portsmouth , its faculty staff and students. The teams organised an induction session and workshops/training for two student film crews, and created opportunities to document oral histories. Eight oral history interviews with members of London’s LGBT Jewish community were filmed in June 2013. The students have transcribed the interviews verbatim and are in the process of editing the footage into an online trailer format.

"Rainbow Jews provides an important source of Jewish history. I urge people to get involved and support this project in whichever way they can"

"I am honoured to support Rainbow Jews and to celebrate the huge positive contribution that Jewish people make to the LGBT community and to our wider society. Jewish and LGBT people share many parallels of oppression and of triumph over adversity. As victims of prejudice, it is important for us to stand together united against all hate."
