Rabbi Julia Neuberger in conversation with Fiona Maddocks

For the first in a series of lockdown platform conversations, John Gilhooly invited Rabbi Julia Neuberger to discuss contents of her book “Antisemitism: What It Is. What It Isn't. Why It Matters” with Fiona Maddocks.

The Jewish diaspora has made a wonderful contribution to both Wigmore Hall and the UK as a whole, in arts, science, the law, medicine and much more. History has shown that where these is antisemitism, troubled times follow, and John thought it was appropriate to give a platform to Julia to discuss her thoughts on this issue. Further episodes of this series will include the double bassist Leon Bosch who John invited to describe his extraordinary life in music, and his early anti apartheid activism which saw him jailed as a teenager in South Africa.

This conversation with Rabbi Julia Neuberger may contain personal, political views, which are not necessarily the views of the Wigmore Hall Trust.
