The British Jewish Community Today – a book and two meetings

turbulent-timesTurbulent Times: The British Jewish Community Today

Two meetings

1. Britishness, Jewishness and Multiculturalism

Sunday 10th October, 6pm, Friends Meeting House, hosted by the Jewish Community Centre for London

Keith Kahn-Harris and Ben Gidley, the authors of Turbulent Times: The British-Jewish Community Today draw on their new book to explain how the Jewish community, which has experienced an explosion of cultural activity as Britain has changed from a mono-cultural to a multicultural society, has sometimes needed to navigate between this cultural renaissance and fears of a new antisemitism as the tense politics of Israel have made being British and Jewish uncomfortable for many.

JCC Café Philo – is a discussion forum in a cafe atmosphere

Venue: Friends Meeting House, 120 Heath Street, London NW3 1DR

Price: £8, including coffee and cake

To book: Call 020 7794 5229 or email:

2. You are invited to an event to celebrate the publication of Turbulent Times.

Wednesday 20 October 2010 5:30-7:00 p.m. Brunei Gallery, 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?

A panel discussion will explore the themes of the book, and there will be a short drinks reception.
