The Jewish Cultural Institute in Bristol and the South West.
DAVAR is an independent cultural organisation promoting events relating to Jewish heritage and culture. We are inclusive, welcoming and our events are open to all, regardless of ethnic origin or religious affiliation. DAVAR provides a forum for advancing appreciation and understanding of Jewish life, culture and history through promoting events such as lectures, concerts, art exhibitions, debates, workshops and films.
DAVAR also issues a newsletter with news, reviews and information about our activities and other items of interest in the community and elsewhere.
Scott Cinemas are pleased to support DAVAR, and hold twice-yearly seasons of films at the Orpheus. All screenings are open to both members and non-members.
