What do we do as liberal jews with Jewish ‘legal’ texts? How do we approach their contradictions both internal and with our modern values?
Thursday 13th February: Anti-semitism or anti-zionism?
At the heart of much of the currently political debate around anti-semitism. What is the difference? Is it possible to be anti-zionist but not anti-semitic? What areas of disagreement are legitimate and where do they lapse in racism?

Venue: The Garden Room, Friargate Meeting House
