Inter Faith – Disagreements between Friends?

David Mason 

There has been a large growth in inter faith work over the last few years, and within that a surge of what the late Rabbi Sacks called ‘side by side’ work. Faith groups getting together to help solve issues, campaign, reduce suffering, contribute to society. And so, at reasonably high levels, all seems well between faith leaders. Below the surface however, there are tensions between faith communities over differences. For the Jewish community these differences are often a function of the importance of Israel to our world and the sometimes disproportionate and aggressive by members of other faiths. I will look at how we can hear those of other faiths, be heard by others and transform tensions into disagreements between friends.

Brexit and the Jews

Ruth Deech 

History has shown that when Empires grow too big and start to fragment, the Jews suffer. Has the EU reached a point where resentment against distant centralised control, and lack of solidarity, gives rise to extremist ideology? Are our human rights and our Jewish rights better protected by a sovereign nation state or by a Union?

Extreme preterm babies - to treat or not to treat

Israel: A patchwork of people

Gila Levitan 

Beyond the 3 religions in Israel are minority communities that have chosen to make Israel their home. Journey from the Black Hebrews of Dimona, the Makyuya to Kibbutz Beit El, to the Ahmadi’s of Haifa and see how diverse people play a special role in the Israel of today. What are their cultures? What do they believe?

Kosher Foxtrot

Tony Zendle 

Who knew that there was a Golden Age of dance bands in Britain during the middle of the last century, and that many of the bandleaders were Jewish? These sons of immigrants became the pin-ups of their time, with a fanbase from royalty to factory worker, and were at the very heart of British musical culture. Discover their fascinating story.
