More than 350 university students attended a Genesis Challenge educational programme last weekend.

The event, held at the Condover Hall in Shropshire, was run as a joint learning venture by Aish and the Jewish Learning Exchange.

Events included a performance by comedy hypnotist Ken Webster and talks by JLE’s Rabbi Dr Akiva Tatz and Aish director of schools Rabbi Shlomo Farhi.

Around 400 students are expected to participate in upcoming Genesis Challenge visits to Israel, Poland, Ukraine and Los Angeles later this year.
