William Frankel In conversation with Jenni Frazer

William Frankel
Jenni Frazer

The distinguished former editor of the Jewish Chronicle shared with  Jenni Frazer some of the anecdotes from his autobiography Tea With  Einstein.

William Frankel was born into a Hasidic community in London's East End, his father a stall-holder in Petticoat Lane. Escaping the Blitz took him to Cambridge where he studied law.  Expanding into ever-wider social, professional and intellectual circles, he vividly describes the extraordinary encounters that he had with political leaders, writers and artists, developing friendships with Isaiah Berlin, RB Kitaj, Yehudi Menuhin and David Ben Gurion.

Glasgow-born and raised, Jenni Frazer is an award-winning reporter for the Jewish Chronicle. She was its chief Israel correspondent based in Jerusalem for 3 years.
