Looking for adventure, romance, political satire? Worried about what’s left on the shelf? We helped participants find a book they will treasure for years to come. Participants brought along their favourite underrated book and enthused about it for 1 minute – speed reading rather than speed dating. Guided by the hosts Josh Cohen and Judy Batalion, a whole world of literature was discovered in the space of an hour, and there was a chance to win a mystery literary prize.

We brought you some of the hottest Jewish talent on the comedy circuit for what was an hour of laughs, discussion and kvetching. Jonny Geller asked whether humour is good for the Jews. We also had Canadian comic Judy Batalion, multi-talented Penelope Solomon, everybody’s favourite UK-born Borshtbelt entertainer, Sol Bernstein, and dazzling Adam Bloom. It was a night to remember.
