Jewish Arguments: Then and Now

Simon Schama

Chair: Julia Neuberger

03/03/2019 2:00 pm
Kings Place, Hall 1

Ticket Price : £18.50

In a world riven with bitter divisions, perverting every opportunity for dialogue, Simon Schama examines the peculiar force of contradictory argument in Jewish tradition. From its distinctive place in the Bible, to the struggle to reconcile revelation with reason in the works of Maimonides and Moses Mendelssohn, at stake is not just the character and future of Israel, but the unity or division of Jews and Judaism world-wide.
