Summary

The Ben Uri Gallery is a gallery of Jewish art in London, currently sited at 108a Boundary Road, St John's Wood, London NW8 0RH. It is the only museum in Europe to be dedicated to Jewish art (rather than Judaica or Jewish history). It was founded in the East End of London in 1915 by Lazar Berson to provide an art society for Jewish immigrant craftsmen and artists then unable to gain access to mainstream artistic societies due to antisemitism, and named after Bezalel
