The Sternberg Centre for Judaism
Rabbi Gilad Kariv, Executive Director of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism is coming to London and will speak at the Sternberg Centre on the important and timely subject of Jewish engagement in politics.
Rabbi Kariv will consider what part should Jews play in political discourse, asking if Jewish values oblige us to speak out and if so when and why, or should religion and politics not be mixed?
He will use his extensive experience as a lawyer and religious advocate to debate the quandaries of the explosive mix of religion and politics, both in Israel and in the Diaspora.
It promises to be a fascinating evening and is an excellent opportunity to hear from someone whose work is at the very heart of the complex relationship between the State and Progressive Judaism in Israel.
The event at the Sternberg Centre on 22nd January at 8pm (80 East End Road, London N3 2SY) is free and tickets are not necessary but, for reasons of security and planning, it is helpful if you let us know you are coming. Please call 020 8349 5642.
