News & Events



If you missed out on last night’s talk — or if you want to re-watch it at your leisure — you can now view the full discussion between Bernard-Henri Lévy, and Mark Lawson on our website or via the link below. The film joins hundreds of videos from decades of Jewish Book Week festivals and events that you can watch for free on our website or through our Vimeo channel.

We’ll be sending you a selection of gems from the archives over the next few weeks, leading up to our next virtual event in September. Check your inbox regularly for details of this event and more to come from Jewish Book Week.

How should we judge world leaders’ reactions to the Coronavirus crisis? What kind of life are we preserving by instigating lockdown and social distancing measures? How can we expect to rebuild trust in governments and experts? Join Mark Lawson and Bernard-Henri Lévy as they discuss these questions and more in our latest virtual event.

Jewish Book Week is a charity and relies on the generous support of people like you. Our programme of events for the lockdown is free but if you would like to support us with a donation it would be very gratefully received.
