Spiro Ark is a London-based charitable organisation which organises Jewish cultural events and courses in Jewish History, culture and languages. It was established by Nitza and Robin Spiro, known for their pioneering work in Jewish Education in the UK.
The organisation aims to teach and enthuse about Jewish History and Culture, both because many people are fascinated by these subjects, and because of the central role of Jewish Education and learning about Jewish History and culture in maintaining a Jewish sense of identity in the 21st century.
