The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT&ANALYSIS -

How­can a man with such an im­mense in­tel­lect as Lord Win­ston se­ri­ously sug­gest that God en­tered into an ar­gu­ment with Moses or Job or whoever ( JC Es­say, May 16)? There is not a scrap of ev­i­dence for this. And yet Lord Win­ston talks about the Jewish com­mit­ment to ra­tio­nal­ity. More to the point, why did God only en­ter into th­ese chats 5,000 years ago and not to­day?

I can for­give the Chief Rabbi for go­ing on about myth­i­cal covenants and our “fini­tude meet­ing God’s in­fin­ity” be­cause that is what rab­bis do, but Lord Win­ston is a sci­en­tist, for God’s sake! H W Lip­son Pur­cells Av­enue, Edg­ware, Mid­dle­sex
