This is Not the Way: Jews, Judaism and the State of Israel
Watershed, Bristol 24 April 2012 19.30-20.30
Few subjects invoke such passion as the history and current situation of Jews in Western societies. David Goldberg, a progressive rabbi with many years’ experience of dealing with other faiths and other Jews, takes the most difficult issues of this fraught relationship and confronts them head on. Forthright, challenging and witty, his presentation and new book will spark debate and criticism in equal measure. Rabbi Dr David J Goldberg OBE is minister emeritus of the Liberal Jewish Synagogue, London. He is the author and editor of several books, including Aspects of Liberal Judaism (2004), The Divided Self: Israel and the Jewish Psyche Today (2006) and This is Not the Way: Jews, Judaism and the State of Israel (2012).
