London's Jewish museum reopens after 10m refit


A museum tracing the history of Britain's 300,000-strong Jewish community is reopening after a 10 million pound expansion.

The Jewish Museum calls itself the only such gallery in London dedicated to a minority group.

It will of course celebrate Jewish life and history, but its ambitions are to engage with people from all backgrounds to explore common ground.

Ahead of the Camden venue's public unveiling, our correspondent Brenda Emmanus was offered an early tour in the company of curator Ricky Burman.
