A new Leeds museum where children can go "back in time" to experience life in a shtetl has opened to the public.
The Jewish Heritage Centre for Children in Moortown, Leeds, has been created by Leeds Lubavitch education director Shoshana Angyalfi and her project co-ordinator Ruth Bell. The Heritage Lottery Fund have donated £275,000 for the project.
Mrs Bell said: "We have had around 90 visitors over the weekend, and three schools, a college and a Women's Institute group are booked to come.
"People in the community love it, you can't tear the children away from playing here.
