Join Rabbi Daniela Touati, Rabbi of Keren Or, Lyon, Gideon Bromberg, Founder and Director of EcoPeace, Middle East and Rabbi Sergio Bergman, WUPJ President, and Bill Echikson, Director of the EUPJ to hear these distinguished panellists discuss Judaism, the environment and climate change.

Black Jewish Lives: The Bush Report

13 June - 25 July

In the past year, Jews have grappled with ideas around race, diversity and inclusion like never before. In a landmark series, the Lyons Learning Project and Jewish Renaissance will be acknowledging and celebrating the experiences of black Jews, undermining the perhaps Eurocentric assumptions about Jewish life. First we look at the Bush Report with Marie van der Zyl, president of the Board of Deputies, and hear from black Jews in the UK, who will share some of their experiences, then we widen the frame for rare insights into Jewish life in Africa. In this opening session, we are delighted to be joined by Marie Van der Zyl, President of the Board of Deputies, who will share some insights into both the motivations and findings of the Bush Report. Click here to sign up.
