Wednesday 20 October 2010 5:30-7:00 p.m. Institute of Education, hosted by the Centre for Jewish Studies at SOAS
Is this the best of times or the worst of times for Anglo-Jewry? What does Anglo-Jewry’s history tell us about multiculturalism? Does the community allow for enough dissent and innovation, or is there so much dissent and innovation that there won’t be a community left?
You are invited to an event to celebrate the publication of Turbulent Times. A panel discussion will explore the themes of the book, and there will be a short drinks reception.
