Diversity in Cricket: two Jewish Internationals tell their stories

Serle Court’s EDI committee and Daniel Lightman KC, co-author of the acclaimed book ‘Cricket Grounds from the Air', are delighted to host Diversity in Cricket: two Jewish Internationals tell their stories, an event at the world's oldest sporting museum - The MCC Museum, Lord’s Cricket Ground - on Thursday, 22 June 2023, between 18:30 and 21:00.

The event introduces an extraordinary exhibition, which is due to be opened shortly by the President of the MCC, Stephen Fry, and the Chief Rabbi, and which has recently been featured in The Times. Daniel Lightman KC has also been interviewed on the topic for Sky News.

Curated by Daniel jointly with Zaki Cooper, the exhibition celebrates for the first time the contribution of Jewish cricketers to the sport. It features the stories of top Jewish cricketers from across the world, including Australia, England, Ireland, South Africa and the West Indies, as well as addressing Jewish cricket at grassroots level, in Israel and the Maccabiah. It uses cricket clothing and equipment, artwork, books, video and other material to tell the story of how the Jewish community has contributed to the game of cricket, while also considering the prevalence of anti-Semitism in cricket and its impact on Jewish cricketers.

Serle Court looks forward to welcoming as their guests Julien Wiener and Mandy Yachad, who respectively opened the batting for Australia and South Africa. They feature in the exhibition, will discuss their cricketing careers and backgrounds, along with their thoughts on the Ashes in the build-up to the Lord’s Test against Australia in conversation with Ruth Jordan of Serle Court, a keen cricketing fan. Daniel Lightman will introduce the exhibition, to which guests will have exclusive access over canapes and drinks. 

Please do get in touch with Shana Garioch if you would like to attend – numbers are limited, and it is certainly a summer event not to be missed!
