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.
