Judah Passow, Kenneth Collins and Hugo Rifkind on the Jews of Scotland
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.
Hugo Rifkind is an award-winning Edinburgh-born journalist who writes columns for The Times, The Spectator and GQ. He writes the satirical Times column My Week on Saturdays and is a frequent panellist on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz.
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.
