Judah Passow, Kenneth Collins and Hugo Rifkind on the Jews of Scotland
Chair: Hugo Rifkind
In Scots Jews: Identity, Belonging and the Future, photographer Judah Passow documents the life of Scotland’s contemporary Jewish community. His project has been exhibited in Edinburgh’s Parliament and in galleries across Scotland and the US. Kenneth Collins’s Jewish Glasgow: an Illustrated History focuses on the Jewish contribution to this renowned city. Together with journalist Hugo Rifkind, they explore the uniqueness of the Jewish community north of the border – at once proud Scots and firmly rooted in Jewish tradition.
Judah Passow is the winner of four world press photo awards for his coverage of conflict in the Middle East. His photographs have been published in leading UK and international newspapers and magazines and exhibited worldwide.
Kenneth Collins is chairman of the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre, writing much on the Jews of Scotland. He is currently a visiting professor at the Medical Faculty of the Hebrew University, Jerusalem.
Hugo Rifkind is an award-winning Edinburgh-born journalist who writes columns for The Times, The Spectator and GQ. He writes the satirical column “My Week” on Saturdays and is a frequent panellist on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz.
