Whodo we think we are?
LEADING JEWISH journalists, politicians, authors and a rabbi will be cross-examined by the public, via Twitter, at a Jewish Community Centre for London and Jewish Chronicle debate on Jewish identity.
The debate will be broadcast live on September 5 from 6pm and readers can participate in the debate by asking questions directly to any of the seven panellists. The final transcript of the discussion will be published in the JC’s Rosh Hashanah edition and placed in a time capsule in the foundations of the new JCC, which will open in London’s Finchley Road in 2013.
The event, called Who Do We Think We Are? will be chaired by JC and Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland and will feature Luciana Berger MP; Julia Hobsbawm, chief executive of Editorial Intelligence; Anthony Julius, JC chairman; Ian Livingston, chief executive of BT Group; Baroness Julia Neuberger, senior rabbi at West LondonSynagogue; playwright Amy Rosenthal, and Lord Weidenfeld, chairman of Weidenfeld & Nicholson.
The panel will answer questions and respond to opinions on Twitter. Those keen to participate have been asked to use the hashtag #jewishID. Questions can also be posted on the JCC’s website.
