TORAH: JUDAISM’S UNIQUE SELLING POINT

Unarguably, the Torah is Judaism’s foundational book.  Reading Torah is the climax of every Shabbat service.  Yet not only do many of us find it at times obscure and remote, the Torah has also been the cause of open warfare amongst Jews for the last 200 years.  Why?  Where did the Torah come from?  Who wrote it?  What authority does it hold for us today?  This is a ‘Real Issue’ which Rabbi Professor Tony Bayfield, author of Being Jewish Today: Confronting the Real Issues will explore with us.

Guest Speaker: Rabbi Professor Tony Bayfield CBE, DD (Cantuar)

We are delighted to welcome Rabbi Tony Bayfield as Guest Speaker to give this year’s Vivian Solomon Memorial Lecture.

In addition to these events, we are embarking on an ambitious project to capture memories, stories and photos from our members, past and present, long-standing and recent joiners, to build a digital and printed archive of our journey.
