A Very British Wedding (episode 3 of 4):

"… Meanwhile, despite not being regular synagogue-goers, Jewish Orthodox couple Natalie and Ben are planning a wedding steeped in their religion, including a Chuppah - the symbol of a new home, and a kosher banquet.
Guiding them through proceedings is Jewish wedding planner Alan, whose sense of humour gets him through the stress of making the arrangements."

same time next wednesday, episode 4: "… Meanwhile, wedding planner Alan is on hand to help Rochelle and Anthony organise their Jewish family wedding.
The couple, who met on a dating website, have both been married previously - something that raises certain issues in their faith.
It means Alan bringing another dimension of his job into play, as a counsellor on religious rules."

joe millis, please stop ignoring my reply to your lie about me, and deleting it and reposting it later as if it was new
here's my reply again

joemillis1959: (Fri 22nd, 13:38) The JC used to have a policy of banning Anthony Posner and his various aliases: Blacklisted Dictator/Jose/Mitnachel et al. Let's reinstate that policy for his current alias, Happy Goldfish.

joemillis1959: (Thu 28th, 16:21) I see that Jose/blacklisted d/Anthony p has started his multiple coloured reposting again as his new alias happy goldfish

i have no connection with those, or with any other present or former bloggers on this site

joemillis1959: He may claim he's not, he may introduce all sorts of snazzy backgrounds and daft graphics - any one with a modicum of HTML coding knowledge can do that (and Jose claimed to be a computer whizz kid) - but his modus operandi is far too similar for it to be a coincidence. Just ignore him.

uhh??

did any of the others actually produce background colours, or red or blue type?

did any of the others preface every quote with a clickable link so that it could be checked?

did any of the others repeatedly link to their own outside blog about oranges ducks and arch-rabbis?

were any of the others goldfish? (you haven't even got the right species! )

oh … and did any of the others use smilies?

joe miliis, please stop harrassing me, and propagating the lie that my behaviour has previously caused me to be banned

there are racists on this website who think there is nothing wrong with lying, so long as they are criticising israel, or criticising people who defend israel

they decide what they want to be true, and then say it anyway, in the absence of any evidence other than their own prejudice, and often contrary to the actual evidence

one reason why so few people defend israel on thejc.com … compared with other sites such as the guardian's "comment is free" … is the unchecked lying or bullying that they'll sooner or later be subjected to

some historians are motivated by a desire to present events in a manner consistent with their own beliefs even if that involves distortion and manipulation of evidence

joe millis is the author of an illustrated history of jerusalem

if his approach to evidence as a historian is as reliable as in his accusation against me, then his book may be an excellent buy as a work of fiction, or as a children's picture book, but cannot seriously be considered as a reliable research resource

JBBC MEMO 53

sunday morning, 11.15am-12.00, on bbc radio 4:
Desert Islands Discs: Sydney Kentridge QC

Widely regarded as a leading advocate of the 20th century, he continues to make his mark in the 21st; he recently appeared for the first time in the European Court of Justice and at the end of last year he spent the actual day of his 90th birthday working in the English Supreme Court.
Born in South Africa, he was first called to the bar there at the end of the 1940s and played a leading role in some of the most significant political trials of the apartheid era. 'Understated, controlled, relentlessly rational' - and with devastating cross-examination skills - the verdict of one of his clients - Nelson Mandela.
He himself says "I hope there's only one thing about my professional life of which I've boasted and which I think, as a lawyer, is unique on my part - I have acted as an advocate for three winners of The Nobel Peace Prize. I don't think anyone else has done that."
