The Jewish people have always been a disputatious lot. In the contemporary British Jewish community, issues such as attitudes to Israel, antisemitism, Jewish practice and schooling can be deeply divisive. Debates in the Jewish community can often be bitter, angry and alienating. So how can Jews maintain a sense of community and people-hood in the face of such differences? Can a more civil discourse replace some of the angry accusations and counter-accusations? Four very different panellists vocalised their opinions in what was a lively discussion.
